The Difference​ Between​ Agency and Private Adoption

The Law Office of Faith Getz Rousso, P.C. represents prospective adoptive parents who are pursuing private and agency assisted adoption.

Agencies are permitted to introduce biological parents to adoptive families. The Law Office of Faith Getz Rousso, P.C. represents families that are working with licensed New York adoption agencies, to consult on potential placements for legal issues, post adoption contact agreements, and to represent the adoptive families in their adoptions.

Private adoption does not restrict who may adopt, as long as, the individual(s) are certified by the Court.  Prospective adoptive families are responsible for their own media placement and outreach in efforts to connect with a biological family.  Private adoption gives you an opportunity to be part of the process...each step of the way.
