However, while you will need a Charlotte adoption attorney for your adoption process, you may also require additional services for a positive, stress-free adoption journey. Our law firm is happy to refer you to additional professionals to ensure you have all the adoption services you may desire for your Charlotte adoption. We’ve provided a list of some of these professionals below and, although we can provide referrals to those we commonly work with and recommend, we encourage all of our clients to do their own research to determine which professional is right for them.
Infant Adoption Agencies in Charlotte
You’ll likely find many of the additional services you may require for an adoption in Charlotte through a full-service adoption agency. While there are plenty of national agencies that work with families throughout the U.S., there are also local adoption agencies in Charlotte who can help you complete your adoption in a convenient location.
These agencies can typically provide all of the services you may need: direct matching with an adoption opportunity or adoptive family, case management services from start to end, open adoption contact mediation, counseling services and more. Which agency you choose to work with will likely depend upon your specific adoption goals and preferences. We encourage all of our clients to research and meet with different adoption agencies in Charlotte before deciding which one is right for them.
Here are few Charlotte adoption agencies to consider:
- Christian Adoption Services
- Bethany Christian Services
- Lifetime Adoption
- Saint Mary International Adoptions
Foster Care Adoption Agencies in Charlotte
If you’re considering a foster care adoption in Charlotte, there are also several local resources available to you, including our law firm. We are honored to have helped create many families through this process, and we’re prepared to handle all of the legalities of your Charlotte adoption from foster care.
You will need to work with an additional foster care adoption professional to receive the proper training and clearance to adopt a child from foster care, due to the potential challenges that come with welcoming a child from foster care into your home. The North Carolina foster care system is overseen by the North Carolina Division of Social Services. The Macklenburg county office is located at:
301 Billingsley Road
Charlotte, NC 28211

- Children’s Home Society of North Carolina
- Lutheran Services Carolinas
- Another Choice For Black Children Inc.
- Eckerd Kids
Home Study Providers in Charlotte
As hopeful parents considering adoption, you’ve likely come across something called a home study investigation. But, what exactly is it?
A home study in North Carolina is the same as in other states — a way for a professional to make sure prospective adoptive parents are prepared for raising an adopted child and all of its potential challenges. During this investigation, a trained social worker will visit your home (wherever you’re located) and interview everyone in your household to prepare and clear you for an adoption opportunity.
There are a few home study providers with offices in North Carolina, and there are also other state-wide professionals who will come to you to complete this screening process. Some professionals to consider are:
- NC Homestudies, LLC
- Nathanson Adoption Services
- Triangle Adoption Services
- Home Study Services of North Carolina
Hospitals in Charlotte
Another important resource, especially for pregnant women considering adoption in Charlotte, is a local, trusted medical professional to ensure the health of the mother and child throughout her pregnancy. When you are considering placing your child for adoption in Charlotte, you can receive local care at your convenience — including from a local Charlotte adoption agency, a Charlotte adoption attorney at Claiborne|Fox|Bradley, and a Charlotte obstetrician or hospital.
If you’re concerned about the medical expenses of your pregnancy, know that these expenses will be covered when you choose adoption. You will also have the chance to choose a medical professional that you’re most comfortable with and create a delivery plan that meets your preferences, whether or not you’d like the adoptive family you choose to be involved in this important moment.
Some of the local medical professionals available to you are:
1000 Blythe Boulevard
