One needs to consider several things before finding the perfect good adoption agency. The agency one selects will basically depend on the type of adoption that one is pursuing. This could refer to whether it is a domestic or international adoption, for instance. The entire family as a whole needs to sit together and discuss on details specific to a family's adoption plan.

You can find out more about an agency from their referrals. Therefore it is better to ask for referrals who can give you valuable inputs. Alternately, you can check with other adoption professionals. People who could give you good adoption advice could include your infertility doctor or your gynecologist. They may have already heard from their patients about the services being offered by an adoption agency. In certain cases, your attorney may be of great help in finding a good adoption agency. He/she may have handled legal aspects related to adopting a child in their clients' cases.

Call up your adoption agency and ask for literature. You can go through the literature in detail and find out more about the agency. You can check out things like eligibility criteria, pre-placement home study, and related things that are being done as part of the agency's services. Find out whether the adoption agency is licensed by the state. The waitlist period or the time you need to wait before adopting a child from an agency, should also be found out. Check out from the adoption agency about the pre-adoption and post-adoption services provide to adoptive parents and birth parents.

The number of years an agency has been in service would also give you a fair idea about their credentials. Always try to get an itemized list of the charges from an adoption agency. Get to know more about their contract. Find out whether they have turned down any adoption and if so, what were the reasons for doing so. And just in case you want to go in for international adoption, find out whether anyone from the adoption agency needs to travel to orphanages in other countries and if so, what are the procedures involved. These are some questions to be considered before you decide upon a good adoption agency.
