Overview of Child Placement Programs
Adoption STAR specializes in both domestic and international placements.
Primarily infants are placed in the domestic program. The agency may take custody of an infant and place immediately in the adoptive family or they may collaborate with other agencies or attorneys to help identify a home for one of their infants or young children. By registering with Adoption STAR, you not only have the ability to be considered for an infant referral through the agency’s domestic adoption program but through referrals from other child-placing agencies that collaborate with Adoption STAR.
Adoption STAR places infants of all races and primarily receives referrals of infants who are Caucasian, Biracial or African American born in the United States. Many of these children are considered healthy, while some are born with special needs or at-risk for developing special needs. The agency operates a Traditional Agency Program as well as an Agency-Assisted Private Adoption Program and an International Adoption Program.
Adoption STAR’s domestic placement programs are open to all residents of New York State, Florida, and Ohio. In addition, each year Adoption STAR accepts a limited number of nationwide applicants for the domestic program.
Children ages 9 months and up are placed in the international program, though the majority of children are toddlers to teens. The agency works directly with professionals in Hague and Non-Hague countries. By applying with Adoption STAR, you have a choice of a broad range of programs to consider.
Adoption STAR places children in need of adoption planning. Many of the children the agency places reside in orphanages. While many of these children are considered healthy, it is important to understand that internationally adopted children often exhibit developmental delays, transition issues and other special needs.
Adoption STAR’s international placement programs are open to couples and singles nationwide.
