Current Adoption Situations for Prepared Families

Welcome to American Adoptions' current adoption situations page. American Adoptions specializes in the adoption of healthy newborns and infants. We are involved in more than 300 domestic adoptions each year, with 75 percent of our families adopting within our estimated wait times. With some of the lowest average, most accurate wait times in adoption it is no wonder that hundreds of families turn to American Adoptions each year to help realize their adoption dream.

This page is intended for prospective adoptive parents who have completed their home study and can be considered immediately for any of these situations brought to us through our Adoption Resource Center, a network of adoption professionals seeking to help birth parent clients find the right family. Please contact us at 1-800-ADOPTION with any questions.


In order to be considered for the available situations listed, you must have:

  • An Approved Adoption Home Study - Your home study must be current within the last 12 months, and you must be able to fax or mail it (and all of the items on our list of required supporting documents) to our office upon our request. For information about our requirements for an American Adoptions-approved home study or the supporting documents you must provide, please see the home study section of our website.
  • A Completed Adoption Profile - Although we don't require a specific type of profile from non-American Adoptions' families, we do need a profile with text and photos and/or video (preferably in electronic form) that we can present to the woman so that she can get a better sense of who you are.

If you are interested in one of the adoption situations and do not have all of these items in hand, but your home study agency or adoption professional has them, you should verify that you can acquire these documents if you are chosen for the situation.

If you do not have a home study at this time, you may not be eligible for a current situation. However, if you would like to have a home study completed to use in the future, please see our home study information. If you do not live in a state where American Adoptions can provide your home study, please visit 1-800-HomeStudy for home study agencies in your state. To learn more about American Adoptions, request free adoption information or read about our adoption costs.

Single or Same-Sex Couple Adoptive Parents

Although laws regarding single person and same-sex couple adoptions limit our ability to serve these clients in all states, we can and do present single parents and same-sex couples to a potential birth parent upon her request.
