We're just getting started with a domestic adoption. We're not sure yet if we will use a lawyer or an agency. We've narrowed our list down to four of each. I believe they are all licensed in NY State although some of them are located elsewhere.
If you've had experience with any of these agencies or lawyers I'd really appreciate it if you'd post here or if that's not allowed on these boards then please PM me.
Here's the list and thanks for your help:
Forever Families Through Adoption
Friends in Adoption
Adoption Services Associates
Elizabeth Swire Falker
Britvan, Wool & Gibbons
Laurie B. Goldheim

Hi! We did a private adoption as well. We used just a lawyer and a social worker, but I am in upstate NY. I am only familiar with Adoption STAR, and know many who have adopted through there and can only say good things about them.Peggy Jeff
