How to Adopt: A Beginner’s Guide [Ebook]

Thinking about adopting a child, but not sure where to start? I feel you. 

When we started our adoption process in 2017 we didn’t really know anyone who had been through the process and we had no idea where to start. We fumbled through those early days and spent some money we later regretted, just trying to find our Start line.

I wanted to spare other families the same confusion, so I wrote, How to Adopt a Child: A Beginner’s Guide.

You can read the entire guide online if you prefer, but I also wanted to make it available as a PDF. Either way you’ll get:

  • A step-by-step guide on getting started.
  • All of my notes on international country programs, adoption agencies, fundraisers, and grants.
  • Resources to help you make those first important decisions.
  • Spreadsheets to help keep track of funds, grant applications, budgets, and more.

Because I know how disorienting those early days can be, and I eventually realized that many people/organizations who can help don’t know that some of us need this help.

Whether you’re just beginning to consider adoption, or you’ve decided but you don’t know where to start, check out How to Adopt a Child and get a foundation so you can make some good decisions and move forward with some confidence.

If you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you on Twitter or IG @estherproject.
