An adoption facilitator may be a clergyman, or doctor, who facilitates an adoption by putting two parties together (Birth Mother/Parents and Adoptive Parents) who may already know each other. Facilitators are not licensed adoption agencies, they cannot charge a fee, and do not provide other services. They link two parties together thats it. To tell the difference between a facilitator and an Adoption Agency, ask to see their Child Placing License. The facilitator wont have a license.
