Infant Adoption

Infant Adoption Begins Here

When a family adopts an infant born in Indiana, The Villages can help to facilitate the process from start to finish, including matching the family with a birth mother/potential adoptive child. We also help families complete home studies, and provide placement services such as working with an attorney to complete paperwork, collecting background information from birth parents, and sending/discussing the home study with your attorney.

We also provide follow-up services such as post-placement supervision report completion, and post-adoption counseling for the birth parents. Our goal is to ensure a happy, successful outcome for all parties, and you can count on us every step of the way.

Timeline and Benefits
So how long can you expect the infant adoption process to take? Typically, families can complete the necessary paperwork and home study process within two to four months.

For families who wish to adopt an infant, private, domestic adoption is often the only avenue available. It also allows adoptive and birth families to choose the level of communication they wish to have with each other as the child ages.

Requirements and Cost
The requirements for infant adoption can vary on a case-by-case basis. In order to make sure we give you information pertinent to your specific needs, please contact The Villages. When you contact us, we’ll also explain our fees structure and what you can expect. Another expense is private attorney fees, which can vary and depend on your particular circumstances of your adoption.
