Starting the Adoption Process in Colorado
What to Expect as an Adoptive Parent
If you’re looking to fulfill your dream of adopting a child, there is a lot to consider. One of these is how the adoption process begins, and what you need to do to get the ball rolling, so to speak. Here you will find links to key factors affecting adoption in Colorado and what you can do as a prospective parent to facilitate a swift and successful adoption.
What to Expect & How to Begin
Adoption agencies care for their clients with money, doctor and medical visits, counseling, social worker, transportation, clothing, baby needs, and aftercare – whether the mother chooses adoption or decides to keep the child. Passionate people donate time and resources to provide this service while adoption agencies and adoptive families provide funds to help women with their daily needs. Virginia Frank, Adoption & Surrogacy Attorney, is also committed to helping prospective parents.

CORE Training & the Home Study Process
CORE Training is a Colorado state law requirement, mandated for those choosing to adopt. 13 topics needed to be completed within 16 hours by the prospective parents. As part of the home study process, CORE training is required for all adoptive families to complete before the placement of a child, unless an exception is made by the adoption agency.
