Independent adoption, often referred to as domestic infant adoption, has changed a great deal in the past few decades. Indeed, children older than infants are adopted privately, as are children of all needs and backgrounds.
Openness in adoption is commonplace now, and as openness has increased, so has "self-matching," whereby birth parents and prospective adoptive parents choose each other (often online) with no traditional intermediary, such as an adoption agency or attorney. If this is the route you have chosen, it is important to retain an attorney as soon as possible to create a smooth process.
An adoptive mother herself, Katie loves helping birth parents and adoptive families expand their families through adoption.
