Here is a basic list of some of the adoption professionals you may need to complete your adoption in Macon and the surrounding area:
Infant Adoption Agencies in Macon
Many prospective adoptive parents and pregnant women considering adoption choose to work with one of the local adoption agencies in Macon for the services that a law firm like Claiborne|Fox|Bradley cannot provide. These services can include:
- Matching services to find an adoptive family or prospective birth mother
- 24/7 counseling and support services
- Case management
- Open adoption contact mediation
- And more
Many of our clients work with adoption agencies, whether they enlist an agency’s services after contacting us or are referred to our legal assistance by their own agency. Therefore, for those who are interested in adoption agencies in Macon and surrounding areas, we are happy to provide referrals to professionals that we trust. Here are a few local Georgia agencies to consider:
- Covenant Care Adoption Services
- Lifeline Children’s Services (Tyrone)
- Bethany Christian Services (Columbus)
- An Open Door Adoption Agency (Atlanta)
Foster Care Adoption Agencies in Macon
Another type of agency prospective adoptive parents may wish to work with is a foster care adoption agency in Macon. These are agencies that specialize in the placement of children who are eligible for adoption through the foster care system and whose parents’ rights have already been terminated.
At the law firm of Claiborne|Fox|Bradley, we can help you complete the legal process of your foster care adoption, but you will likely need to work with a local foster care agency to receive the proper training and find an available adoption situation. The overseeing agency for foster care in Macon is the Georgia Division of Family and Children’s Services. Professionals you may consider for this kind of Macon adoption include:
- Bibb County DFCS
- Georgia Baptist Children’s Home (Palmetto)
- Bethany Christian Services (Columbus)
Home Study Providers in Macon
Home study investigations are required in almost every single Macon adoption (except for certain stepparent and relative adoptions). This investigation is a way for a licensing agency to make sure a prospective adoptive family is ready to welcome an adopted child into their home, as well as the unique challenges that come with raising an adopted child.
There are home study providers throughout Georgia who can help complete your in-home interviews and visits to get you approved for the adoption process. While there are no home study providers with offices in Macon, these providers will send a trained social worker to wherever you are located to make sure you can effectively and properly meet this adoption requirement.
Some local professionals include:
- Options 4 Adoption
- A Adoption Advocates of Georgia
- The Adoption Authority, Inc.
- Adoption Babylink (GA)
Hospitals in Macon
Another important local resource for any adoption in Macon is a hospital and obstetrician for those who want to place a baby for adoption in Macon. When you’re a pregnant woman considering adoption, you have the right to trusted, local professionals who can help you through your journey while considering adoption and making a plan for you and your unborn baby. You have the right to choose your own obstetrician and a hospital that’s convenient for you, no matter where the adoptive parents that you choose live.
It’s critical that every woman, whether she’s considering adoption or not, starts receiving prenatal care as soon as she realizes she’s pregnant. Here are some local and nearby medical professionals available to you:
777 Hemlock Street
