ABC believes that adoptive parents need special preparation as they go through the adoption process. Not all prospective adoptive parents are ready to adopt, and it is important that they explore this very important issue before a child is placed in their home. Since adoptive parents actively take part in locating birth mothers who are interested in making an adoption plan, it is not the role of the agency to put restriction such as age or marital status on the adoptive parents. Birth parents usually know what kind of adoptive parents they are interested in for their child. We do not discriminate in any way.
