Every state in the United States has its own laws and regulations regarding adoption.  New York State has some of the most comprehensive laws.  In New York State whether you live in Rochester, Watertown, Syracuse, Elmira, Binghamton or in New York City in one of the boroughs such as Brooklyn you will be placing your child in an adoptive home with laws that protect you, the biological or birth parents.

In New York State, there are not many adoption agencies as they have to meet strict standards of practice in order to be able to place children in adoptive homes.  Family Connections, Inc. has over twenty years of experience in New York State and has well developed support services for biological or birth parents.  Family Connections, Inc. can assist you wherever you live in New York State. In northern New York in the Watertown area to Elmira or Jamestown, Binghamton to Poughkeepsie, and Brooklyn to Long Island, we have social workers to support you as you make your adoption choices


For birth mothers, those decisions are choosing the adoptive parents for your unborn child and deciding how open you want the adoption to be.  Birth mothers will have their own attorney who will provide each birth mother with legal advice.  All of the attorneys used by Family Connections, Inc. are qualified American Academy of Adoption Attorneys.  We use these attorneys because we want birth mothers to receive the best advice when they are exploring their adoption choices. Every adoptive parent has an attorney, so you, the birth parent or biological parent should have an attorney when you are making the choice to place your unborn baby in an adoptive home.


Whether you want a closed adoption or an open adoption, the choice belongs to you.  All of the adoptive parents who work with Family Connections are willing to participate in either an open or closed adoption.  We have some really great adoptive families.  Check them out here.


Family Connections, Inc. is close to both the adoptive parents and the biological birth parents geographically and can help you through your adoption process and work through your open or closed adoption.  There is no need to place your child out of state when a local agency with over twenty years of experience is available to help both the biological/birth parents and the adoptive parents to meet each other connect with each other and enter into an agreement that places children in an adoptive home.  You the birth parent chooses the family and level of openness.


So, if you live in New York City in any of the boroughs like Brooklyn or in Long Island, Elmira, Binghamton or in Upstate New York or in cities such as Syracuse, Cortland or Watertown or any small towns near all of these cities you can choose to work with Family Connections, Inc. if you are making an adoption plan.  Check out our website or call us.  We have a lot to offer you as you choose to find an adoptive home for your unborn child that will be the family and the kind of adoption you choose.
