If you are like most parents considering adoption, then you probably began your search here on the Internet. The sheer volume of information about adoption here can be overwhelming, contradictory, or just plain wrong.
You have read heart-warming stories of children leaving orphanages or foster homes to go live with their new, permanent families and heart-wrenching stories of adoptions that ended in failed placements and disrupted families.
The Adoption Law Center of Northern Virginia was founded to help you make sense of it all and to help you navigate the maze of laws, paperwork, social service departments, adoption agencies, home studies, guardians ad litem, government agencies, and court systems that stand between you and your adopted child.
Adoption is not for the faint of heart and, if you don't know it yet, you are in for an adventure! But, at the end of the maze, at the end of the rollercoaster ride, after all the ups and downs, when your child is fast asleep in the freshly-painted room at the end of the hall, it will have all been worth it.
Thank you for considering making the Adoption Law Center of Northern Virginia your partner in this adventure of a lifetime.
