    Types of Adoption

    There are two types of adoptions in California - Agency and Private.

    In an Agency adoption, the birth mother relinquishes her child to a licensed agency and the child is placed with a qualified family.

    In a Private adoption, the mom chooses the couple with whom she wishes to place her baby. Birth mom has complete control over the selection of the adopting parents so can make an inteeligent and well thought out choice as to the adopting family.

    AdoptSanDiego handles Private adoptions.
