  • Description
  • Amazing Grace Adoptions is a 501(c)3 non-profit, licensed adoption agency located in Raleigh, North Carolina. We provide a variety of services to those involved in the adoption triangle. The children who are placed through Amazing Grace Adoptions have not only been given the gift of physical life but also have a mommy and daddy who are Christians and can share God's plan for eternal life through Jesus Christ.
  • Adoption Process
  • Domestic Adoption Process: 1. Call the AGA office to request a preliminary application packet. 2. Once the packet is returned, an approval committee reviews each application. 3. If approved, a pre-placement assessment (also called a home study) packet will be sent. The home study process is guided by the state of North Carolina’s requirements for paperwork and interviews. The home study packet will include documents such as medical forms, birth and marriage certificates, criminal record checks, health insurance verification, and financial information. Once all documentation has been received by AGA, a social worker contacts the family to begin the interview process. Three meetings are required. 4. Once the home study has been completed and approved, it is valid for 18 months. This means an adoptive placement can be made during that period of time. Each family puts together a profile book, or photo album, about their lives. These books are shown to birthparents, who choose the adoptive family and may request a meeting with the family. These meetings are usually held in the AGA office and inevitably serve to remove fears and calm nerves of all parties involved. 5. At the time of placement, physical custody of the child is given to the adoptive family, even though Amazing Grace Adoptions temporarily maintains legal custody. Two post-placement supervisory visits are required by North Carolina before finalization can be completed. The first of these occurs during the first two weeks following placement.
