There's so much to know about finding, choosing, and working with an adoption agency that it can all start to feel a little overwhelming. Luckily, by following these simple steps, it can be easier than you thought to find "the right match" when it comes to local adoption agencies.
Jennie, a single mom, worked hard in low-paying jobs all of her life to support her children. She has also cared for a 14-year-old boy, Jacob, since he was left in her home by his birth mother when he was only three days old.
Jennie always meant to make it official and adopt Jacob but she didn't know how she would manage to pay for the legal fees or the home study. When the school system notified her that Jacob would have to leave school unless she could produce his birth certificate or prove she had legal authority for him, she turned to Idaho Youth RanchAdoption Servicesfor help.
