Expanding your family through adoption may seem overwhelming. Often circumstances out of your control have led you to this fork in the road.

How do I get started? How long will the process take? What is the involvement of the biological parents?  Do I want to adopt domestically or internationally? Do I want to adopt a child from the foster care system or through a private adoption? How much does adoption cost? How do I place my child for adoption? Can my spouse adopt my child from a previous relationship? Can biological parents change their decision and have their child returned to their custody? How do adoption agencies work?

The questions are near endless.

This book will cover these topics and guide you, so that you can make the best decisions to grow your family through adoption. You will be prepared, competent, and confident to make the first step in your adoption journey and with every step along the way.

Stacy Gleaton is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in New Mexico and Texas. She has worked in multiple social work settings over the years. One such social work job was with Child Protective Services (CPS) in New Mexico, where she first professionally learned about foster care and adoption. Stacy then continued to conduct home studies, but this time in the private sector. In 2015, Stacy began working with the military population and found it to be generally mistaken as a poor resource for an adoptive family; she enjoys advocating for military families in their adoption journey. As a Christian, Stacy has found many similarities between adoption and her relationship with God.

It is her hope that this book will give you the comfort and competence needed to begin your adoption journey!
