Every day many families in the USA are adopting children as an addition to their families. According to studies, one out of every 25 U.S. families with children has an adopted child. In the United States, you can adopt a child domestically or from another country with different countries having different rules and regulations. You can adopt domestically either through a state agency, an adoption agency or independently.
For international adoption, the Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity, Inc. (IAAME), is the accrediting agency responsible for accreditation, approval, monitoring, and oversight of adoption service providers that provide intercountry adoption services in the United States.
