From the start of your adoption journey to present, we have resources and guidance for you and your family for planning and transition. 

Dr. Eckerle is writing a book about preadoption issues relevant to parents who are just starting out. New chapters become available all the time - check out the content we have so far here.

If you are a family traveling abroad to meet your referred child for the first time, we've put together a page of resources, links and downloads to help you plan and prepare for that trip.

A Zero To Three fellowship awarded to our child psychologist, Maria Kroupina, Ph.D., allowed us to develop the current research-based protocol that integrates mental health services into our existing collaborative clinical model. Now, Dr. Kroupina has authored a training just for professionals.  Learn more

Our screening protocols are reviewed annually by the International Adoption Clinic physician staff.
