Ohio Child Adoption Laws

Before starting to search for a child to adopt or an agency to assist you, it is a good idea for you understand how the adoption laws in Ohio may affect your decisions. Making informed decisions is the best way of increasing your chances of adopting a child. Please visit adoption law in Ohio for more details and/or contact an adoption attorney in Ohio.

Are Children Available for Adoption in Ohio?

Yes, through both public and private adoption agencies. In Ohio, and every other state, there are many children in foster care available for adoption and for these children you should contact the Ohio foster care system (On your search engine, type in the words “foster care to adopt in Ohio.).   However, remember that the actual number of children adopted through the Ohio public child welfare agency is only a small portion of the total number of all Ohio adoptions (exact numbers are not available at this time).

Remember that while you may be a resident of Ohio, you are not limited to adopting a child from Ohio. You can adopt a child born in Ohio or a child born in any other U.S. state (contact us).  What is important for you to understand is that infants and children are available for adoption in Ohio and in each of the other the 49 states.

Adoption Consultant Resource

Why You Need an Adoption Consultant

There are many risks when you go to adopt a child including losing a child after you have already taken them home (referred to as a disruption), losing all of the money you have invested in the adoption if the birth mother changes her mind, or finding that there are previously unknown or undisclosed fees that may appear. Dr Berger has helped thousands of adopting families with domestic adoptions and international adoptions and he is available to assist you no matter what type of adoption you chose to pursue and regardless of whether you work with an adoption agency, facilitator or adoption attorney. He can help you save your time, effort and money in helping you to decide what routes to take and the best way to achieve your goal of adopting a child. He can help reduce your risks and potential pain and can help you avoid many of the problems and pitfalls found in the adoption process. You can read and download his free adoption manual or, for more information on how he can help you, please visit his Adoption Consultant link.
