Agency or Attorney in Columbus, OH?


My husband and I are preparing to start pursuing infant adoption in Columbus, OH but are finding the task of choosing an agency or attorney a little overwhelming. To be honest, we’re not even entirely certain which way we want to go in that regard: we like the idea of working with an agency because in many ways it feels like the “safer” option (e.g. some agencies offer programs where they will help cover expenses in the event that a match falls through). On the other hand, we also like the idea of being able to do some of the networking ourselves, which would allow us to feel as though we have a modicum of control over what happens within the process. I guess what I’m wondering is if anyone might have advice or opinions on agencies or attorneys that they worked with in this area? I realize that there are already a number of posts on here that address this subject, but many of them appear to be close to (or over) a year old, and I was hoping to get some input that is a bit more recent. Any and all thoughts would be greatly appreciated!



We chose to use Adoption Link in Yellow Springs,OH. Our experience was wonderful. Our daughter is now 18 months old. We couldn’t be happier.

Good luck to you!

We are in Columbus.  We used AdoptionSTAR out of Cincinnati.  We really liked them.  I have heard good things about Tommy Taneff in Columbus- no personal experience there.  We used Patrick Hamilton for our finalization.  I highly recommend him.  I don’t think he does any actual matching, just adoption after placement.

This is an old thread so I’m not sure where you are in the process, but we used Choice Network in Columbus and we very happy with them.
