American Adoptions Inc Hot
We worked with American Adoptions back in 2011-12. We eventually left the agency because of their lack of ethics, leaving $6K behind. They told us we could set our own budget, and that wouldn't change, but they were constantly pushing us to up our budget saying they didn't have any situations as our price point (even though they originally stated they did). They charge based on race. Basically the more white the child is, the more they cost. It's despicable. They also encouraged us to lie through omission on our family profile. We were adopting for reasons other than infertility, and they encouraged us to word it as if we were suffering infertility because moms would be more likely to pick us.
If you are thinking about using them, whether you are a birth parent or adoptive parent, DON'T.
They have a very skewed adoptee perspective, very untruthful.
Yes, they will tell the PAPs whatever they want to hear, very aggressively moving "product" ie babies.
My husband and I have had a
My husband and I have had a very bad experience with a previous agency so we were very skeptical about continuing our dreams to adopt and talk with any agency. At this point, we are just talking with American Adoptions and I must say they have been so kind, honest, and helpful. I believe this is definitely the agency my husband and I will end up going with. Don't be afraid to call these guys. They will tell you whatever you want to know.
