Private adoption within the same state as you have residence is different than if you choose to adopt a child from out of state. IN an effort to protect all parties involved, the Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) ruled that there has to be regulations on interstate adoptions. This started in the late 1950s to coordinate which state is responsible for the child while in process, in the case the adoption doesn’t go through or if a foster child needs to go back to into state care.

Today, the ICPC assures the child is protected by providing a safe environment, the child’s best interests are considered in the placement, the sending state investigates and evaluates the placement, the child is taken care of by the proper jurisdictional entity, and the the sending agency agrees to guarantee legal and financial protection. While each state’s process may look different, the child has to be protected in these areas.
