(FOX19) -

Research shows that there are approximately 125,000 adoptions annually just in the U.S. for those families who are considering adoption.

It can seem like a huge process and many don't know where to begin.

Geniene Delahunty with Running For Home, Adoption Attorney Jenny Dusing and Brooke Breeze, who recently adopted a child from Ghana, joined FOX19 to discuss the adoption process.

Breeze teaches at Lakeside Christian Church, she teaches families who want to learn more about the adoption process

Breeze has provided some simple steps for the adoption process:

  • Determine the type of adoption
  • Choose an adoption service provider
  • Complete a home study
  • Complete dossier and profile
  • Wait for referral

For those looking to be more involved, the Running From Home 5K Run/Family walk is an annual event to assist adoption through financial grants and to support families forever.

The event began in 2011 as a way to help a friend in her adoption fundraising efforts.
