Private adoption is one of several mechanisms by which an individual or a couple struggling with infertility can create a family. The private adoption process allows biological parents’ input into the selection of prospective adoptive parents, so that they are able to enter into an adoption plan which they consider to be best for their child’s future well being, as well as their own.
Prospective adoptive parents may prefer private adoption because it allows them to obtain information about the birth parents and it avoids the bureaucracy and long waiting lists associated with private and public agencies.
However, adoption laws are confusing and mistakes can be made. It is important to retain counsel with experience in this field in order to have a successful adoption. We wrote the book on private adoption; two of our attorneys co-authored four editions of a monograph Private Adoption in Kentucky (UK/CLE Monograph 1989, 1994, 1998, 2000), and have lectured on numerous occasions concerning private adoption.
