Our Agency

Probably one of the hardest things about adoption is choosing the right adoption agency. And there’s really no right or wrong, it’s whatever is the best fit for you. When we first looked at agencies after the failed IUI’s, one that was at the top of our list was Independent Adoption Center (IAC.) We went to an all-day information session, but eventually decided we weren’t ready emotionally or financially to commit.

When we made our decision this time to move forward with open adoption, we looked at IAC again, along with several other agencies. It was no contest. IAC offers the support we seek for both ourselves, and for the birthparents.

IAC has been a leader in adoption since 1982. Their reach is vast and they are the most experienced open adoption agency in the country, spanning 49 states. They are licensed in California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, New York, North Carolina, and Texas.

IAC also has no exclusionary policies and allows birthparents the sole right to choose the family they want. IAC does not exclude adoptive parents based on racial/ethnical, age, religion, marital status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

One thing we loved is that IAC has counselors available to speak with birthparents 365 days a year. And the key word here is counsel. When birthparents call in, they are counseled with their various options, not pushed into choosing adoption. And, I love the fact that the agency is there to support the birthparents, no matter what decision they make.
