Adoption facilitators are typically either licensed social workers, or unlicensed paid intermediaries. They assist couples in locating and matching adoptive couples with birth parents. Adoption facilitators can be a friend, family member, doctors/nurses, or religious figures with the sole intent of helping potential adoptive parents. It is important to know your state’s adoption law regulating the use of an adoption facilitator, especially if unlicensed. In some states, the use of an unlicensed paid adoption facilitator is illegal. Hiring a qualified adoption attorney, regardless of your chosen path to adoption, is a wise decision.
