Safely Connect with Professionals & Adopting Families

I wish PairTree had been a resource for me 15 years ago when I was making an adoption plan. Instead, I was limited to one agency and just a couple of families. Today, PairTree Connect unlocks a nationwide network of licensed adoption professionals and their home study-approved families, ensuring that you have options, choices, and control over your own adoption journey. – Jess
