My husband and I have a complete home study andwe have been looking into hiring an adoption facilitator out of California. The thing is we are so confused on which one to use. We are between Adoption Answer and Everlasting Adoptions. Adoption answer has a sorter wait time, and they both have the same price, but Everlasting Adoption has the BBB stamp, but both are watched over by the state of California and Everlasting told us it would take up to 2 years because we are wanting a baby girl. My husband and I really need to make a choice so we can get started, but we really need a third party to help us choose.Answer Question

here is a link to an independent adoption agency rating site:Â http://www.adoptionagencyratings.com/adoption-agency-rank.htmÂ
What you should be looking for is an ethical and moralÂ facilitator. Many agencies use pressure and coercion to find women in crisis pregnancy and get them to relinquish their babies so that they can profit from the adoption. Promising a low wait time should be a red flag.

You say you are in CA, do you live anywhere near Los Angeles. On May 15th Marlou Russell Phd is giving a lecture at Santa Monica College called "The Lifelong Impact of Adoption". You can register on line here: http://commed.smc.edu/index.cfm?method=ClassInfo.ClassInformation&int_class_id=20547&int_category_id=1&int_sub_category_id=36&int_catalog_id=0
I highly recommend it.
