Information and Referral

After a child appears in media recruitment, newspaper, television or radio, Adoption Center staff respond to any inquiries received as a result of media features. Families who request information can receive, by email or mail, answers to frequently asked questions about adoption and a resource list of adoption agencies specific to their state. Adoption professionals who use the Center’s media to feature their children will receive all inquiries from approved families within two business days.

All inquiries from families who are just beginning the adoption process will receive a referral to the Center’s agency and family matching service AdoptMatch. AdoptMatch provides a prospective adoptive family with an opportunity to register, create a unique profile, and be matched to the most appropriate agency that best fits its adoption needs and goals.
