Central Valley Agencies

Hi, everyone!

My husband and I are researching different agencies in the central valley, particularly Fresno.  Has anyone used an agency in this area? We are looking into Family Connections Christian Adoptions in Fresno at the moment.  We are mainly interested in agencies that cost below $25,000. Any others that come recommended?



Are you planning to adopt domestically—an infant—or are you considering adopting from the foster care system?  We worked for a time with Fresno county for a while, and with an agency called Koinonia Family Services.  If you are adopting from the foster care system there are no fees at all beyond having your fingerprints scanned and learning CPR!

We are planning on adopting domestically . We considered fost adopt, but ultimately felt it just wasn’t the right route for our family.

We have been working with FCCA in San Diego.
They don’t get many expectant mom situations for private domestic adoption & don’t do any advertising/marketing to expectant moms. Since January, there have been 5 situations…2 involving healthy babies & 3 involving very challenging situations where babies’ health was compromised. If you do use FCCA, I recommend hiring an adoption facilitator who can get your profile seen by expectant moms. However, that could put your budget over $25,000.
