All across the world, there are thousands of children in need of adoptive parents to provide them with a loving and stable home. These children include newborns placed for adoption, children living overseas, and children within the state’s child welfare system. “Exploring Adoption Options” is written to provide a general guide to someone who is interested in adoption. Adoption is a very complex process and a life-changing experience. It involves many professionals, such as adoption agencies, attorneys, social workers, facilitators, and state operated child welfare services. Children available for adoption can be found domestically or internationally, some of which are explored in this paper.
