Good websites for adoption information include Child Welfare Information Gateway and Adoption.com. Information can also be found on adoption agency websites.
Child Welfare Information Gateway is a service provided by the Children's Bureau, Administration for Children and Families and the U.S. Department of Health and Human services. This site has resources on both domestic and international adoptions, but particularly focuses on the U.S. fostering system. Some of the topics covered by resources include ethical issues in adoption, birth parents, laws related to adoption and search and reunion of adoptees and their birth parents.
Adoption.com has guides on how to adopt a baby, international orphans and foster children. It has a directory of adoption agencies and attorneys with reviews and ratings to help users find the best. Families and parents looking to adopt can upload photo profiles, or search through profiles of children looking to be fostered.
Adoption agencies such as American Adoptions offer information on their websites. This can be used to answer questions on adoption fees, open adoption and the benefits of adoption. There are resources for pregnant women considering putting their babies up for adoption, as well as for prospective adoptive families. A step-by-step guide goes over the entire adoption process.
