Other people looking to complete an adoption in Bakersfield wish to adopt a baby through private domestic infant adoption. FCCA can help you through this journey, too. Our adoption counselors can help you complete your pre-placement requirements and, when you receive a placement, finalize your adoption in court.

While our agency does receive inquiries from prospective birth mothers, we recommend families taking this Bakersfield adoption route also work with a separate matching agency at the same time. These matching professionals often have a larger opportunity for outreach and marketing, which means they will typically match you with an expectant mother faster than you would be matched solely through our program.
