Private adoptions are where the prospective parents actually adopt straight from the mother. Prospective parents actually seek out the mothers though doctors, attorney, word-of-mouth, or even advertising. This type of adoption is usually much quicker and less expensive than an agency adoption. Most states allow adoptive parents to pay the biological mother’s medical expenses during pregnancy. But it is against the law to pay someone to give up her child.
