We are looking forward to working with you and your family. Here is a look at the steps of the adoption process with UCAC:

  • Receive referral for a specific child from an external adoption agency.
  • Pre-Adoption Assessment with UCAC
  • Review your family’s medical insurance coverage using the UCAC Insurance Navigation Guide
  • Review the Adoption Legal Process
  • Schedule an appointment with the Travel Clinic for any family members traveling abroad.
  • Schedule first Post-Adoption Medical Evaluation appointment within a week of your arrival home. At this time we ask families who did not have pre-adoption consultations to provide medical histories. Learn more about the 5-visit process or call 1-888-824-0200 to make an appointment.
  • Our Program Coordinator, Amanda, will give you a call before your first appointment to introduce herself and get some more information about you and your child.
  • After completing the 5-visit Post-Adoption Medical Evaluation and needed specialty care, your family may choose to continue on with us for Comprehensive Adoption Care or transition to a local community provider.
  • Join the UCAC Parent Group to connect with other adopting families in the Chicago-area.
