My wife and I are looking to adopt. We are not interested in adopting through the foster care system. Can anyone recommend a good adoption agency?

You have three choices. A private agency, the state of Texas or surrogacy.

The private agency will cost you between 20 and 30K to get a child. I'd google them then do due diligence. Your lawyer should be able to recommend someone.

The state route will cost far less, but you will have to invest more time in attending classes and getting certified.

Surrogacy will be about the same amount as the private route. A fertility specialist should be able to help you with this.

Given your state wishes, I'd include the surrogacy route as well.

Beware of the con artists looking to put their kids up for adoption. They come in all ages.
