“However parenthood comes to you, it is a miracle.”
The Law Office of Rebekah Brown-Wiseman, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, represents individuals and couples who wish to adopt a baby whether a newborn or an infant.
Today, most domestic newborn or infant adoptions are open adoptions, whereas most international adoptions are closed adoptions. In open adoptions, the birth mother and adoptive parent(s) meet and become acquainted before the birth of the baby. Birth mothers and adoptive parent(s) may discuss whether they want to have any continuing contact after the adoption and if so, what kind. It is important to have an adoption lawyer put any such plans in writing.
Domestic newborn and infant adoptions are usually matched placements or privately-arranged:
- Matched placement adoptions: In a matched placement, the birth mother selects the adoptive parents from profiles they prepared by perspective adoptive parents. Contact adoption lawyer Rebekah Brown-Wiseman if you desire to have your profile prepared and made available to birth parents.
