  • None what so ever. We did a a private adoption. I have friends who had an adoptions through the state and foster care. The end result is still the same. You love and parent your child. In the end that is all that matters. It is silly to wonder why International , why private, why foster/ adopt, or why an open or closed adoption. We all make decisions on what works best for our families.

  • If you go through the system then the state is all up in your business. If you do a private adoption then it is easier and the state doesn't get involved.

  • Foster care is where you take in kids that are waiting to be adopted and actual adoption is where you go and feel out the paper work and receieve full custoday of the child. Good luck.
