How FCCA Can Serve as Your Adoption Agency in San Diego

If you wish to work with an agency for adopting a child in San Diego, look no further than FCCA. With more than 30 years of experience, our professionals can guide you through many different adoption processes, including:

In most of these adoption processes, you will also need to complete an adoption home study. This investigation will make sure your family is prepared for the challenges and rewards of adopting a child. When you work with FCCA for your San Diego adoption services, your home study investigation will be included in your process. You won’t have to hire an additional professional like you would with some other adoption agencies in San Diego. Legal processes like stepparent adoption in San Diego can be handled entirely in-house.

Each of our San Diego adoption programs are different, as are the level of services we provide. We’ve described the basics of each below, but we always encourage you to contact us for more detailed information.

Foster-to-Adopt in San Diego

At FCCA, we are honored to help those interested in a foster care adoption in San Diego. There are many opportunities for San Diego county adoptions, and we have helped many people add members to their families in this way.

If you complete a foster child adoption in San Diego with our agency, our professionals will assist you through every step — including meeting pre-placement requirements, helping you find an adoption opportunity, finalizing your adoption and providing post-adoption support services. FCCA also provides the specialized training developed by the Trust-Based Relational Intervention Program to prepare you for the challenges and rewards of this adoption process.

When you complete a low-risk foster care placement with our agency, you should not need any additional adoption services in San Diego to complete your family-building journey.

Infant Adoption in San Diego

You can also work with our agency to complete a private infant adoption in San Diego. We assist hopeful parents through both independent and agency-assisted journeys by providing legal assistance to finalize your adoption. While we do match any prospective birth mothers who contact us with waiting families in our agency, we also recommend that parents wishing to adopt a child in San Diego simultaneously work with a matching agency. These professionals can often offer more adoption opportunities in a shorter period of time, due to their more extensive outreach and advertising.

Some of the infant adoption agencies in San Diego and nationwide include:

International Adoptions in San Diego

If you wish to adopt a child from another country, our agency offers programs to adopt children from Hong Kong and to adopt relatives from Nigeria. Our staff can guide you through every step of this process.

If you wish to adopt from a country other than Hong Kong or Nigeria for your child adoption in San Diego, FCCA can help you complete your adoption home study, complete your post-placement or post-adoption supervision, and connect you with a Hague-accredited adoption agency that works in the country from which you wish to adopt. These additional professionals will help you understand the logistics of adoption in that country, help you find an adoption opportunity and coordinate your travel to that country for the adoption process.

Here are a few adoption agencies in San Diego and across the state that can assist you through this process:
