Domestic Infant Adoption in Arizona

If you’re thinking about adoption as a way of building your family, you may have considered domestic infant adoption in Arizona. At American Adoptions, we’ve helped more than 13,000 families with infant adoption in AZ over the last three decades, and we work hard to make sure birth mothers get the support they need, too.

For birth mother, Angelica, calling American Adoptions was the starting point in her adoption journey. Her adoption specialist supported her fully throughout the domestic newborn adoption process, and she says the no-pressure approach to making a difficult choice to place her child made her comfortable with the process. 

“You could tell they weren’t just putting on a front to make you want to do it or push you into it,” she says. “They want whatever you want, and that’s what they told me during the whole process. It wasn’t up to them; they were just going to be there for me no matter what decision I made.”

American Adoptions is committed to supporting expectant birth mothers, prospective adoptive parents and adoptees through the domestic adoption of infants in Arizona. We’d love to help you, too. Please call 1-800-ADOPTION or complete our online form to speak with one of our compassionate, experienced specialists.

What Are the Types of Adoption in Arizona?

In Arizona, domestic newborn adoption, foster care adoption, and international adoption are the three family-building options you have. Newborn adoption lets you open your home to an infant and become their permanent parent. People considering adoption sometimes begin their personal journey by selecting whether foster care adoption, international adoption, and U.S. domestic infant adoption in AZ is best for them. 

What is Domestic Infant Adoption in Arizona?

Private domestic adoption is the adoption of infants in Arizona directly from a birth mother soon after the child is born. In this kind of adoption, birth mothers elect to place their baby with an adoptive family they get to choose. Newborn baby adoption in AZ is the most common type of adoption in the state because it offers many benefits to all parties.

American Adoptions is a national domestic infant adoption agency, so we can connect expectant mothers with hopeful adoptive families anywhere in the U.S. Both American Adoptions and local Arizona domestic newborn adoption agencies help birth mothers and adoptive families with the steps in the adoption process.

Infant domestic adoption in AZ is easier when you work with a private agency, and if you’re pursuing open adoption, it’s a must. Open adoption features a contact agreement that allows free communication between the members of the adoption triad.  

Even though local and national agencies handling infant adoptions in AZ can help you on your journey, lots of expectant birth mothers and waiting adoptive families enjoy the many benefits of working with a national agency. As the leading national private adoption agency, you’ll enjoy the industry-leading advantages of working with American Adoptions, such as:

  • Wait times of an average of 12 months
  • 100% financial protection for active families, along with transparent, accurate fees
  • Comprehensive in-house adoption services from licensed adoption social workers
  • Larger marketing and advertising budgets so you won’t have to wait to become parents
  • Bigger staff that is accessible 24/7

Sure, local agencies may provide more in-person meetings and more face-to-face interaction with expectant birth mothers. But American Adoptions of Arizona gives you so much more. With our agency, you’ll get both the reach and scope of a national agency plus the personal touch of a local organization.

Again, it’s worth noting that though local agencies may offer some of the needed services, they usually work with fewer birth mothers. That can extend your wait time significantly and limit your choice. If a local agency has a full list of waiting families, you may be waiting years for the right adoption opportunity. That’s why American Adoptions is the choice of many hopeful families for their AZ newborn baby adoption needs.

If you want to get started on your adoption journey with American Adoptions, all you have to do is call 1-800-ADOPTION or complete our online form today.

What is Foster Care Adoption in Arizona?

The foster care system is managed by a state agency charged with providing temporary care after a child has been separated from their family for any number of reasons. The foster system strives to reunify the child with their birth parents, but sometimes that’s not in the interest of the child’s safety and wellness. When reunification is impossible, foster care adoption is an option.

One of the main differences between foster care adoption and domestic newborn adoption in AZ is the age of the adoptee. Foster care adoption usually involves older kids. Some children in foster care have special needs or have been through trauma.

The cost of adoption from foster care is far less costly than adoption for newborn babies in Arizona. That makes it a great option for hopeful parents seeking to open their home to an older child. It’s important to note, though, that adopting a child through the foster care system often takes significant time.  

To get additional information about foster care adoption in Arizona, contact one of the following agencies:

What is International Adoption in Arizona?

International adoption can involve the adoption of children of any age from nations outside the U.S. Though it was once popular, the strict and ever-evolving regulations around international adoption have made it the least popular kind of adoption today. Because of the rapid decline recently in international adoptions, domestic infant adoption in Arizona is continuing to increase in popularity.

But if you want to connect with other countries and cultures through international adoption, it may be worth it to you to fulfill the extra requirements and deal with the related uncertainty. 

Before you can pursue an international adoption, you’ll need to find a Hague-accredited international adoption. To find one, you can contact the following agencies:
