Adoptive Application

Adoption can be a little overwhelming and we are here to make your adoption experience as stress free as possible. We work to develop a personal relationship with our adoptive applicants so you will feel comfortable reaching out to us whenever you have questions or need help. We start with  consultations- either in person or via electronic correspondence, to guide you through the home study process and completing all required materials. We are by your side through matching, placement, and finalization.

If you’re feeling ready to begin without a consultation, you can start by completing our online application.

Our Costs

We offer our services on a sliding scale so that low and middle income families are not barred from the adoption process because of over-burdening costs. This sliding scale places a greater burden on higher income families and on AGTA, as we underwrite the actual adoption costs for lower income families. For those who will pay more, fees help subsidize services for children in need. We hope that you can agree that those who can afford to parent but cannot afford excessive adoption fees should not be barred from adoption.
