How can I be sure that the parents I choose to adopt my baby are truly good people?
As required by law, The Law Offices of Berkowitz & White may only place a child with adoptive parents that are home-study approved for private adoption in Florida and have undergone an extensive screening process. This includes a criminal background check and central abuse registry check. While not every adoptive family may be right for you, you can rest assured that any of the families we present to you are kind people who are ready and able to give your child a loving home.
Will I be able to get help with things like maternity clothes, health insurance and prenatal vitamins?
Florida law allows adoptive parents to assist the expectant mother during her pregnancy and up to six weeks after pregnancy. These expenses are allowed if you are unemployed, under-employed or unemployable. These living expenses can include: telephone service, food, toiletries, necessary clothing, transportation, and insurance. Generally, you may receive help with expenses necessary for the health and wellbeing of you and your child.
