Explaining the Cost Associated with Adoption
Adoption Choices of Missouri is upfront about adoption fees. We make each step of your journey financially understandable – basically you know exactly what you’re paying for.
We can also help you find resources for loans and adoption grants.
Because we work with a limited number of families at a time, we’re able to offer quicker placement times and more adoptions than other adoption agencies and service providers. Our connection times range from 2–24 months. If you are open about the baby’s race and gender, expenses, and birth location, your adoption process could move quicker.
Open adoption means the birth mother has the opportunity to communicate with the adoptive family and meet them in person if desired. Many birth mothers will request letters, pictures, and some level of communication with the adoptive family after the adoption is finalized. The majority of our adoptions are open, but we also fully support families and birth parents who wish to have semi-open or closed adoptions.
We match birthmothers and adoptive families based on whether or not they are the right fit for each other, not by the order in which they come to us. Because of this, we do not have a waiting list.
Adoption Choices of Missouri has far fewer restrictions than a traditional adoption agency. We serve families all over the United States and only require you to be 25 years of age or older. We have no religious belief requirements and you do not need to be a US citizen. We fully support both single parent adoption and gay and lesbian adoption, and families with other biological and/or adopted children are welcome to apply. We also accept couples who are already working with an adoption agency or professional and have not yet had any luck.

A close friend told me about Adoptions Choices. She had gone through the adoption experience and said so many wonderful things, she shared her story with me when I got pregnant and didn’t want to be a parent and so I contacted them. They were so open and friendly, made everything simple to understand, and truly deeply cared. They were there for me whenever and listened to everything. No one ever made me feel ashamed of my decision. They made me feel good about it and supported everything that I wanted through the process. –
