The IAC is one of the only adoption agencies in the country that has never had any exclusionary policies for adoptive parents, including age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, religion, ethnic background, color, or race.

AREAS SERVED: The IAC is licensed in California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Texas, New York, and Connecticut and has placed newborns in 49 states.


Mission:The mission of the Independent Adoption Center (IAC) is to provide open adoption placement and counseling to birth and adoptive families to ensure that every child grows up feeling loved and supported.
Programs:Pregnancy Counseling
The Independent Adoption Center provides non-directive and non-coercive counseling. We provide women with all of their options and never push for adoption as the preferred choice.

Services are free to birthparents, and if you choose to place their child in an open adoption with one of our pre-approved families, they will receive free lifetime support as well. Even if adoption is not the right choice for a particular client, the Independent Adoption Center counselors will provide free counseling and referrals for the following:

Medical Services
Legal Services
Social Services

The Independent Adoption Center intake staff provides counseling 7 days a week from 7 am to 10 pm, including holidays.
Adoption Counseling

Open Adoption Counseling is a vitally important component of the open adoption process because open adoption brings disparate people into a familial arrangement. The Independent Adoption Center believes that open adoptions work best when birthparents and adoptive parents control all of the major decisions. Each adoption, like each family, is unique. It establishes its own rules and boundaries and has its own sets of challenges. For this process to be successful, it requires professional counseling.
