For Prospective Adoptive Parents

Adoption is a beautiful way to build a family.  It often provides a very sought-after young member to a waiting family, while also ensuring a forever home to a deserving child.  Finalizing an adoption is usually a very joyous and celebrated event, however, the time and work leading up to finalization can fill prospective adoptive parents with trepidation surrounding confusing legal requirements, unknown third parties, and medical uncertainties.  Jessica Gordon is an experienced adoption attorney and can help guide prospective adoptive parents through these fears and difficulties, ensuring that all legal requirements are met, that the birth parents are dealt with fairly, ethically, and appreciatively and helping everyone to come to the joyous conclusion of securing a forever family.

“Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, you didn't grow under my heart but in it.”

“I believe that adoption is the most loving choice that is available.  Adoption is not “giving up” a baby, but instead I view it as a “giving to” a family and “providing for” a child.” – Cheryl, 26, birthmother
