Adoption News & Laws

ADOPTION LAW & NEWS

Adoption Laws, Policies and Programs change frequently!  Your Home Study Agency and/or Placing Agency will keep you informed of any immediate or upcoming changes that would effect your personal adoption plan. 

Adoption issues sometimes make the news and unfortunately it is usually the BAD news that gets the most attention.  Keep in mind that adoption news stories that make the television or newspapers usually do not tell the whole story.  In cases of failed or disrupted adoptions, remember that this is rare and the details regarding the events are unique to that particular adoption process. 

Here are some resources that provide current adoption news regarding Policy and Program updates and changes:
