What is the wait time before a baby is placed in our home?
Do you place with single parents?
Do you work LGBT applicants?
The home study process and the application process is the same for all those applying with our agency. The LGBT applicants should present themselves, in their profile books, to birth parents just as any other applicants would. You should show birth parents that no matter your sexual orientation, the baby would be joining a loving, responsible family. Show your home, your family and friends, your hobbies and interests and do not be afraid to show your relationship with your significant other.
If you would like to see some statistics and research on LGBT adoptions, please go to: https://www.childwelfare.gov/systemwide/cultural/adoption/gay_lesbian.cfm
How long does it take to complete the home study?
Do you provide home studies for couples working with out-of-state adoption agencies for placement, either domestically or internationally?
What are the levels of openness in adoption?
Semi-Open Adoption: In a Semi-Open Adoption, birth parents and adoptive parents usually meet prior to the birth of the child, and the adoptive parents are often times present for the birth. After placement, communication, such as pictures, texting, phone calls, letters and emails, may occur. Last names and addresses of both parties are not disclosed, unless otherwise agreed upon by the birth parents and adoptive parents. This type of adoption allows for communication between the birth parents and adoptive parents while also maintaining some privacy. Keep in mind, the level of openness is always changing and shifting throughout the adoption and after placement; relationships change as time goes on.
Confidential (Closed) Adoption: In a Closed Adoption, there is no contact between birth parents and adoptive parents, with the exception of the birth parents’ non-identifying social/medical information that is provided to the adoptive parents. This type of adoption is rare in private adoption situations due to social media and the internet.

After a year and half with a national adoption consultant group and four disrupted adoptions later, I was heartbroken and losing hope. Thankfully I reached out to and signed up with Adoption Choices of Colorado. Their staff were warm, empathic, and encouraging at a such a vulnerable time in my life. After one more devastating disrupted adoption, I got the call I had been waiting for. Seven months after signing up with Adoption Choices of Colorado, I met with and held my daughter in her NICU hospital room for the first time. . . . Read more
