Missouri Adoption Agencies
The most common type of adoption in Missouri is a private domestic adoption. When a prospective birth mother wants to place her child for adoption, a licensed Missouri adoption agency matches a birth mother with an available adoptive family. By offering support and Missouri adoption services, a Missouri adoption agency facilitates the entire process to complete a placement.
The Missouri adoption process has numerous steps, which is why you need a private Missouri adoption agency equipped with licensed and experienced specialists that can:
- Create an adoption plan just for you
- Help match prospective birth mothers with adoptive families
- Provide 24/7 support for emotional needs as well as answer any questions about adoption in Missouri
- Help with hospital planning
- Provide a risk-sharing program to protect you financially
- Help guide you through the Missouri home study process
- And much more

Because many of us are adoptees, birth mothers and adoptive parents, we understand what you’re going through and what you need to feel safe and secure in your decision to adopt.
Take it from Scott Mars, founder of American Adoptions, and an adoptee himself.
“My mom and dad were a couple who weren’t able to become a mom and dad without adoption. Of all people in this world, my mom and dad deserve to be parents. And without adoption, they would not have been able to share their love, share their life, and give someone the life that I had.
“Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity.” You can watch Scott’s video to see his entire adoption story.

“I called American Adoptions and became in contact with an adoption specialist. I felt an immediate connection.

She answered all of my questions and when I had nothing to say she let me cry.”
Missouri Adoption Attorneys and Why You Need One [You Can Get Free Legal Help]
There are numerous legal steps during the process of adoption in Missouri. Regardless of whether you’re using an adoption agency or attempting to complete an adoption through an independent attorney, you need a licensed and regulated legal professional to help you complete a placement.
Because of the need for a Missouri adoption attorney, why not use an adoption agency that also connects you with experienced legal professionals?
At American Adoptions, we work with adoption attorneys that pride themselves on ethical practices and completing adoptions following all Missouri adoption laws.
Our attorneys will help:
- Complete all Missouri adoption paperwork
- Compile and file all documentation required for finalization
- Represent and support you at your finalization hearing where your Missouri adoption becomes official
Now that you know we can provide you with licensed, experienced and ethical adoption professionals, it’s important you understand the role of adoption law centers and facilitators and how they differ.
Adoption Law Centers and Facilitators: Why Their Services Might be Limited
In some cases, prospective birth mothers and adoptive families choose to work with independent adoption law centers or adoption facilitators.
For prospective birth mothers, maybe you know someone who wants to adopt your child and you simply need the use of an attorney. Adoptive families looking for a quick adoption process might turn to a law center or facilitator that claims they can complete a Missouri adoption more quickly than a conventional adoption agency.
It’s important to consider that both of these adoption professionals are often not held to the same legal and professional standards as licensed and regulated adoption agencies. Furthermore, they may only offer limited adoption services.
For example, an adoption law center can provide legal counsel but cannot match a birth mother with an adoptive family. Conversely, an adoption facilitator may advertise their matching services but still require you to seek legal representation, meaning you still have to find another independent professional.
Ultimately, there is no guarantee your adoption in Missouri can be legally finalized which is why working with a full-service adoption agency like American Adoptions and our legal professionals eliminate any doubt that your Missouri adoption is receiving the services of licensed professionals that it deserves.
