How is Adoption with Private Agencies in Montana Different from Other Types of Adoption?

The words “private” and “domestic” are key when it comes to private agency adoption in Montana.

The word “private” differentiates private adoption agencies in Montana from “public” (or government) agencies—usually foster care agencies

A foster care agency is typically a government-run agency that steps in when children are at risk in their current homes or when parents are unable to care for their children, and places the children with other families. Foster care placements are usually temporary, but in some cases adoption in possible. Permanent placements from foster care (or foster care adoptions) happen more often for older children.

“Domestic” differentiates U.S. adoption agencies in Montana from international agencies. International adoption agencies help adoptive families in the United States adopt children from other countries. These children are also typically older.

Why Do People Choose Private Domestic Adoption Agencies in Montana?

Potential adoptive parents who choose private adoption agencies in Montana almost always have a strong desire to bond with a child from birth and be a part of the child’s birth, and many have struggled with infertility. Most want to make sure their child knows their birth family and birth story through open adoption.

Potential birth parents are often expectant parents who have goals that are incompatible with raising a child, or know that the timing is not right for them to bring a child into their home.
