About Us


In 1988, it became our life’s mission to assist women with unplanned pregnancies. We wanted to help women to be able to make an adoption plan that they can be proud to have completed. We wanted the birth mothers to have their basic financial needs met. We wanted to support the mothers and see that their medical, social, emotional and financial needs were met, even when no other attorneys or agencies were in agreement.

Since 1988, we have finalized over 400 adoptions. Several of the adoptions were DHS foster care parent adoptions. However, most were private placement adoptions. We would now like to recommit part of our practice to the completion of DHS finalization cases.

Bado and Bado believes that women who make adoption plans for their children may be the most heroic people in our society. Few individuals place the needs of others so far above their own. A birth mother makes the ultimate sacrifice because she loves her baby. As an adoption law firm with more than 32 years’ experience, we are always amazed at the courage and determination that birth mothers display. We seek to find adoptive parents who will also recognize and value the birth mother’s commitment to provide the best life possible for her child.




When you, the birth mother, choose an adoption plan for your baby, you are entitled to all the encouragement, love, and support that we can offer. Most of all, the birth mother deserves to be recognized for the true heroism and love that she displayed. One way Bado and Bado ensures that the birth mother is valued and respected, is to honor her decision to place her baby. We assist with the birth mother’s physical and emotional needs throughout the pregnancy and several weeks after delivery. The birth mother chooses the adoptive parents by looking at our portfolio books of families. She may also have specific requests or circumstances she desires in the adoptive parents. We will locate parents that satisfy these requests.
