There's no guidebook to adoption... until now. 
Introducing All About Adoption

A comprehensive, step-by-step course designed to give you the answers

and clarity you need to navigate the adoption process.

At Adoption & Beyond, we’ve spent nearly three decades helping families adopt children into loving homes. 

We know the adoption process inside and out, but when families come to us, they often feel confused, emotional, and overwhelmed. 

All About Adoption is your comprehensive guide to the entire adoption process, from those critical first steps, all the way to submitting your application. 

Inside All About Adoption we cover:

The ins and outs of domestic adoption 

Best practices and importance of attachment and bonding 

Understanding the experience of expecting parents

Pros and cons of open adoption 

Guidance for post-placement and finalizing your adoption 

Plus dozens of bonus resources, checklists, and trainings

We can’t promise a stress-free journey, but with All About Adoption we can arm you with the resources you need to feel empowered and confident every step of the way.
You deserve a clear process and a compassionate guide to adoption.
We created All About Adoption to give you exactly that.

Meet Your Instructor

I'm Steffany, and I founded Adoption & Beyond, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in 1998. I, along with each member of our staff, have been both personally and professionally impacted by adoption, and many of us have been through the home study process ourselves. 

As a non-profit, child-placing agency, we work diligently to uphold ethical values and transparency in everything we do, while always keeping the child's best interests at heart. We created the All About Adoption course to help families overcome the overwhelm and get their journeys started on the right foot. 
Explore All About Adoption: a comprehensive step-by-step course

Module 2: The Domestic Adoption Process

In this detailed module, we'll cover the ins and outs of the domestic adoption process so you know just what to expect around every corner. 

Module 3: Attachment and Bonding

When adopting a newborn, some wonder how important traditional adoption attachment and bonding approaches are in the early stages. We'll help you decide what's right for your family. 

Module 4: Understanding Expecting Parents

Birth parents are making a brave and monumental decision to place their child for adoption. This module will help you see the experience from their eyes, so you can support your child in understanding his or her adoption circumstances down the road.

We know you're eager for "happily ever after!" and we're getting close. This module will help you wrap up loose ends with confidence as you prepare for a fulfilling future.

This module covers the option to proceed with an open adoption. We'll cover what it is and how it could impact your child and your family in the long run.

Module 7: Frequently Asked Questions

Adoption comes with what feels like zillions of questions. Don't worry – we've heard them all. In this module, we address those we hear most frequently.

Module 8: Closing

It's one thing to check all the boxes off your adoption task list, but you want the process to go as smoothly as possible, too. In this module, we'll give you some parting advice with that goal in mind.
