“My husband and I had scoured about 100 profiles and nothing felt ‘right,’ but when I came upon Keith and Shannon’s, all I could do was cry. In that moment, I felt relief, and I knew that everything would be okay,” said Alexandra, a birth parent. “ I knew I would be a good mom for doing the right thing and pursuing adoption, but in that moment, I knew I would be a great mom for placing our daughter with such amazing people.” 

Adoption can be a beautiful and life-changing process. Alexandra and her husband knew adoption was the right decision for them and they allowed American Adoptions to guide them through their adoption journey with the perfect adoptive family

We specialize in private domestic adoption, and our goal is to create a safe, smooth and life-changing adoption experience for you. What you want and need during your adoption journey is a top priority for us so that you can receive the best possible support and adoption services. 

Matthew and Katheryn have adopted twice with our agency, and a big reason for that is the peace of mind knowing we were going to do everything possible to ensure their adoption process was safe and full of joy. 

“Matthew lovingly says that working with American is like having a catered dinner,” Katheryn said.

“I just remember feeling excited,” Matthew said. “It was really nice to have them [American Adoptions] know exactly what you needed and have it all planned out so that you didn’t need to worry about the next step or whether you had gotten everything you needed in place.” 

Over our more than 25 years of experience, our team has worked hard to continually improve the experience of adoptive parents and prospective birth mothers in the adoption process. What does this mean, practically?

Take it from Scott Mars, founder of American Adoptions, and an adoptee himself:  

“My mom and dad were a couple who weren’t able to become a mom and dad without adoption. Of all people in this world, my mom and dad deserve to be parents. And without adoption, they would not have been able to share their love, share their life, and give someone the life that I had.   

“Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity.”  You can watch Scott’s video to see his entire adoption story. 

If you’re ready to experience the beautiful journey of adoption in Cincinnati, we’d love to work with you. Give us a call at 1-800-ADOPTION or visit us online today to learn more. 

Foster Care Agencies in Cincinnati 

There’s more than one way to adopt. Another route for hopeful parents to think about is foster care adoption. There are more than 16,000 children in Ohio’s foster care system, and thousands of those children are waiting for a family through adoption. Foster care adoption can be a tough process, but it’s an immensely rewarding one for those who choose to build their families through this path. 

For families who wish to foster-to-adopt or adopt through foster care in Cincinnati, these resources may prove useful: 

International Adoption Agencies in Cincinnati 

Some families dream of adopting a child from another country. While international adoption has become more restrictive in the past decade, it is an option for you if you are ready to devote the time and energy needed to successfully bring a child from a different country into your family. 

You cannot complete an international adoption in Cincinnati on your own. Therefore, you should consider using international adoption resources of nearby agencies, such as: 

Cincinnati Adoption Attorneys 

During the legal Cincinnati adoption process, an adoption attorney is needed to finalize the adoption, educate prospective birth parents about adoption consent and more. American Adoptions connects our prospective birth and adoptive parents with a Cincinnati adoption attorney, but if you need to find one on your own, you might consider one of the following: 

Cincinnati Home Study Providers 

A home study is required of all prospective adoptive families before adopting in Cincinnati. Essentially, it’s an evaluation of your readiness to adopt, including background checks and in-home visits. We recommend you start the process as soon as possible, as it’s known to take some time to complete. 

To do that, you’ll need to work with an Ohio-licensed home study provider, such as one of the following: 

Prenatal, Maternity Care and Delivery Hospitals near Cincinnati 

During the American Adoptions prospective birth parent planning process, expectant mothers create a hospital plan. Your adoption specialist will help you create this plan. Because many of our specialists have experienced adoption as birth parents or adoptive parents, you’ll be working with someone who truly gets it.

You’ll choose where you want to receive prenatal and delivery care, so that you don’t have to worry about finding a health care provider later in your pregnancy. You also won’t have to worry about your medical costs; our agency will take care of that for you

You may consider these Cincinnati hospitals for your prenatal and delivery needs:
