Announcing Our Law Center

After a TON of research and disappointment we've finally decided on a company that we want to take care of our adoption. Drum roll, please.....The winner is Adoptionhelp Law Center!
I couldn't feel better about our choice. Every review that I've found is glowing, they have an A+ rating with the BBB, and their adoption success rate is 92%. They are a national adoption law firm based in California, so they work with birthmothers from many different states (meaning relatively fast match time). Their fees are in between $25,000 and $30,000 and that includes EVERYTHING, even the homestudy.
I'm so glad that we have finally gotten over this hurtle. Now its time to move on to the fundraiser phase. We have decided to put together a family garage sale, a small banquet fundraiser in Belton, and a larger elaborate fundraiser in Austin. We also have thought about a fund raising poker tournament and a Chick-Fil-A fundraiser. We'll see how everything goes!

  1. Hi, I'm also looking for an agency at this point. I've been working on this off and on since last August. Do you have a break down of AdoptHelp's fees? Do they contract with social workers to complete the home study? Does the $25 - 30K include the possible costs the birth mother requests for living expenses? This is so much more expensive than I ever thought it would be! Thanks for your help and good luck! Chez (Chay)in Missouri :)
