.... PROSPECTIVE ADOPTIVE PARENTS - HOW TO PROCEED - STATEMENT OF UNDERSTANDING

Essentially, there is such a wealth of information shared concerning the expectant mother/father and the adoptive parent/s before fees are submitted and phone and/or face-to-face meetings are conducted, that it is reasonably expected that a commitment to an adoption plan will occur at the time of the phone call or a face-to-face meeting.  It is rare that the parent/s and the adoptive parent/s decide not to proceed with a mutual adoption plan commitment at the time of the phone call or a face-to-face meeting.
The adoption professional might arrange for the mother and the client to have conference call with him/herself and the mother/father before paying any fees, while some ask for a retainer, sometimes partially or fully refundable. Each professional defines his/her own protocol. Most are very reasonable and flexible concerning this.
AdoptLink has no control over the fees and/or policies of any adoption or medical professional.
