To adopt through a private agency or state foster care system, you must apply and submit to a “home study,” to determine if you can provide a suitable home. In an “open adoption,” birthparents and adoptive parents meet and share identifying information. An international adoption is complicated by U.S. laws and the laws of the child’s home country. A local family law attorney can provide a detailed explanation of your state’s adoption processes.
