Program Introduction Meetings

Getting Started

If you are considering adoption, the first step is to attend a Program Introduction Meeting. These meetings are designed for prospective adoptive parents to learn more about the adoption process and ACI’s programs. Topics discussed will include:

  • A description of ACI’s approach to adoption
  • A summary of ACI’s adoption process
  • An overview of each of ACI’s adoption programs
  • ACI’s fee schedule
  • A question and answer period

Attendance is free but you must pre-register to attend. All in-person meetings will be held at ACI’s office at 5828 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60660. Please see our upcoming Program Introduction Meetings – we look forward to meeting you soon!

Individual Consultations

In lieu of attending an Adoption Program Introduction Meeting, ACI staff is available to meet with prospective adoptive families for individual consultations to address their particular circumstances and adoption preferences. Please note that a fee of $125 would apply for a 60-minute consultation. Please call 773.334.2300 to schedule a private consultation.
