About Adoptive Families

If you are considering adoption, you probably have questions about the people who are interested in adopting a baby.

We refer to these people as "adoptive families," or "adoptive parents," even though they aren't technically parents, yet. Nearly all adoptive families have struggled for years with infertility or are unable to have children of their own, and they are now turning toward women like you to help them realize their dreams of having a family.

We have hundreds of families to choose from, meaning you will choose the family that perfectly matches the life you want for your child.

In the articles below, you will learn how each adoptive couple is pre-screened, open to a relationship with you, and ready to be met through their video profile.

  • How will the family tell my child about me and the adoption when my child is older?

    This is a question that can only be answered by the individual family. Each family has their own style of how to introduce the adoption to the child. When you are matched with your adoptive family, you can ask this question to them. If you would like your Adoption Specialist to discuss it with them for you, just let her know.
