Adoptive Parent Information
Adoptions Throughout the United States
If you are an individual or couple looking to adopt, our adoption agency can provide you with the information you need. You may have a number of questions pertaining to the process, including whether you are eligible. We can explain the process and requirements in detail. At Adoption ARC, our goal is to help generate relationships with adoptive families as they navigate the adoption process. This is accomplished by remaining in contact with them. We stand by our adoptive families through each step of the process and after the process is completed.
If you are wondering whether you are eligible to adopt, you can speak with our adoption agency for assistance. Whether you are single, married, divorced, or in a nontraditional relationship, you may be eligible as long as you are prepared to give the child a permanent, loving, and safe home. No matter what race, religion, or ethnicity you are, you will need to have a valid home study performed. Additionally, a child abuse and criminal background check will have to be conducted. We can help match you with a child in a manner that meets all parties' needs.
Creating & Supporting Families Since 1994
Since 1994 we have been helping create families. Once a match between the child and family is created, we can facilitate all aspects of the placement. Even after a child is placed with an adoptive family, we remain involved to help them stay connected with our agency. We can perform post-placement visits if you are within our licensed area based on Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware laws. Another option is to have the agency that performed your home study perform the evaluation.
Because we believe that adoption is a lifelong process, we offer several programs to provide support to adoptive families. These programs include but are not limited to support groups, community events, and family social events. We also can also provide information about the permanent adoption tax credit. Contact us at your earliest convenience to get started creating your family!
