Most birth mothers and birth fathers are seeking a happily married, financially secure, loving couple to adopt their baby. A few have specific requirements for their "dream couple," but most just want a really good family.
The most successful adoptions occur when the right birth mother comes together with the right adopting parents. But not all adopting and birth parents are right for each other.
Since none of us can read minds, an adopting couple's greatest protection in finding and working with the right birth mother and father lies in the experience of their attorney. The longer counsel has been in the field, the more successful adoptions he or she has handled, the more warning signs he or she has learned, the safer his clients are.
