Little to no prematch cost

Hi! We are homestudy approved in OH & working with an agency. We would like to increase our chances by adding additional agencies or attorneys. Specifically with little to no prematch cost. Any suggestions?


We submitted our profile to Choice network in Columbus.  They allow you to be “second string” at no cost (or they did 3 years ago).  We had one opportunity through them.  They show your profile if the expectant parents don’t feel drawn to any of the families contracted with them.

I think our agency will work something out, but only for hard to place children.  We went thru Adoption by Gentle Care in Columbus, so you could try them.

With CHOICE, if you want to be first-string, it’s $2500 up front, which goes toward your final fees (or it was last year). Adoption Link, who we ultimately placed through, has very little upfront fees for sharing your homestudy and nothing at match, other than the birthparent expenses.
