What to know if you want to adopt in North Carolina

There are a lot of reasons that people choose adoption. Whatever your personal reason for wishing to adopt, there are certain things you need to know about the process. Depending on the route you choose, it can be an expensive and protracted process, taking many months or even years. However, if you are dedicated to expanding your family and have the resources, support and love to help an adoptive child perform to one's fullest potential, adoption can be a beautiful and rewarding decision. Many families or single people planning to adopt retain the services of a family law attorney.

Adopting a child with special needs in North Carolina

If you are considering adopting a child with special needs, you may qualify for adoption assistance. There are federal and state adoption assistance programs that are in place to help you meet your child's needs. Very often, these programs are dependent on the child's history, including in which state the child was in foster care prior to the adoption.
