At A Is 4 Adoption, our private adoption center in California facilitates the relationship between birth mothers and adoptive parents, and we would love to work with you, should adoption be the course you choose.

Deciding to Adopt
For gay couples, there are several options to consider when starting a family, with adoption being just one of them. There is surrogacy, foster parenting, and other options, and it’s important to weigh all of them before making a decision. If adoption is the path you choose, our team is here to help you find the right match in terms of birth mother and baby. We know there is a lot that goes into deciding to adopt, and we’re here to help every step of the way.
Meeting the Birth Mother
As an adoption center in California, our focus is on caring for the birth mother as best as we can. Once you and your partner have decided to adopt, we will set up a meeting between you and the birth mother of the child you wish to adopt. It’s important to us to build a relationship between the birth mother and the adoptive parents, so you can get to know one another and decide what type of communication and interaction you will have once the baby is adopted. You’ll likely have some questions for the birth mother, and she will have questions to ask you as well.
Bringing Home the Baby
Once the adoption process has finished and you’ve brought the baby home, the focus is on ensuring the child has everything they need. At A Is 4 Adoption, we can provide resources for adoptive parents from beginning to end, including connections with legal help to answer any questions of that nature, as well as what goes into a private adoption and the necessary steps to finding the right child and making them a part of your family. We want you to be as excited as possible to bring the baby home and begin building a life with them and for them.
Building a Family
For many adoptive parents, including gay dads, having one child can lead to the desire to adopt another in the future. As you begin building a family and your child starts to grow, the discussion might turn to adopting a sibling for your little one. At A Is 4 Adoption, we’ve worked with many adoptive families multiple times, helping them connect with the same birth mother as their first child, or a new birth mother who is looking to place their baby for adoption. We love the opportunity to work with couples again and again, so if you and your husband decide you want to adopt another child, we’ll be here to help.
If you have questions about private adoption in California, or you want to know more about our adoption center specifically, please reach out today. We have helped gay couples become fathers through the joy of adoption, and we’d love the opportunity to meet with you and see what you’d like your family to look like in the near future.
