The Protecting Adoption Act of 2015

The Protecting Adoption Act of 2015 has just been introduced in the United States Congress.  The Act is the result of the efforts of many organizations interested in promoting good adoption practices, including the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys.  It is the purpose of the Act to establish a federal Responsible Father Registry.

When Should I Hire an Adoption Attorney?

It is highly recommended that couples seeking a parental placement adoption should retain an experienced adoption attorney as early as possible.  It is also recommended that the attorney be a member of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys. This organization is an exclusive group with approximately 300 members in the entire country.  The qualifications for membership are very high and you can have confidence that any member of the Academy is a specialist in adoption and has a great deal of experience.  A list of AAAA members may be obtained at the organization's web site at  Having an adoption attorney during the search process is important for several reasons.

Parental Placement - The Search

The most difficult part of a parental placement adoption is the search.  How do you find the birth mother?  How does she find you?  Second to this problem is the need to present yourselves in such a manner that the birth mother will want to choose you, instead of the many other couples also searching for a child.  These two problems must be addressed together, because your presentation is part of your search.  You cannot wait until you find a birth mother to figure out what you want to say to her.  The information you prepare about yourselves will most likely be viewed by the birthmother without your even knowing it is happening.
