There are enough horror stories in the media about child trafficking and baby for sales to frighten any adoptive parents. So it is important to work with a reputable adoption agency with a good track record. Speak with other successful adoptive parents. If they have a positive experience with their agency, they will be happy to recommend their agency. A good agency should furnish you three important piece of information. First, the cost breakdown should be clearly spelt out with no hidden cost. Second, the contract should be clear without ambiguity. Third, the child's medical status and origin is verified.

3. Learn from Other Adoptive Parents

Adoption is a long tedious process and the outcome can be uncertain. Being a member of a support group of adoptive parents will be a source of strength and encouragement in your adoption journey. Find a local support group in your area or parenting forums. Knowing what is ahead, anticipating and preempt any possible problems will give you some peace of mind.

4. Know the Adoption Procedure and Law

Keep yourself updated on the latest adoption law in the child's country and in your own country. Generally adoption laws are very stringent in order to prevent human smuggling. Different countries have different criteria for international adoption.

Some countries require the adoptive parents to reside in their country for a certain duration. Some countries such as Cambodia and Vietnam have opened and then closed their doors to International adoption. Find out if you are eligible to adopt from the host country.

5. Know the Cost of Adoption.

Adoption is not cheap because there are many people involved in the chain of transaction. These cost includes child care(diapers, milk), accommodation, caregivers salary, travel, hotel stay, air ticket, legal fees, medical fees, notarization of legal papers, translation of documents, agent's fee and a host of other expenses. The cost could be as much as $20,000 to $30,000.

If lack of money is a problem, do not despair or give up hope. If you have the will, you will find ways to raise money and save money. You can raise money by holding an auction, a garage sales, take on extra jobs, or borrow from your siblings or parents. Put aside 10% of your salary into your saving accounts. Reduce your expenses. Forgo your new car or your holiday vacation. A child is worth more than the latest cool gadgets and luxury. The value of a child's life is priceless.

6. Complete the Home Study Report

The Home Study report is a 'labor pain' that you have to go through and complete successfully. It is tedious and time consuming. It is worth the pain because once it is completed, the joy of seeing your child is within sight.

7. Have Faith

Have faith as you begin your adoption journey that someday you will return home with your child in your arms. Through your adoption, you have given the child a hope of a better future. Your adoption changes your child's destiny forever. Someday the child will call you daddy and mommy. Adoption is a gift of parenthood and the opportunity to love and to be love by a child. This is the greatest experience in life.
