Working With Other Agencies
Rainbow Adoptions International Inc works in partnership with other placing agencies, both within and outside the state of Connecticut. An identified placing agency is in charge of the referral process of a child, whether through a domestic or international adoption. Rainbow Adoptions International Inc is focused on evaluating the potential adoptive family through the home-study process, and then supporting the family members as they are matched with a particular child and birth family.
Some families come to our agency already with an identified placing agency in mind. Other families may need guidance about choosing a trustworthy domestic or international placing agency. Rainbow Adoptions International Inc can help in both situations. We love partnering!
