Adoption Videos - Communicate More Effectively to Pregnant Mothers

How Adoptive Family Video Profiles Benefit Your Adoption

Adoptive Family Video Profiles are produced by Show Pro Media.

Have you ever stopped to think about how difficult it must be to make a life-changing decision based solely on text and pictures?

In past adoptions, a pregnant mother was expected to select an adoptive family without first knowing what they sounded like, how they interacted with each other, or even what they might be like as parents. Those days are now over because of American Adoptions’ Adoptive Family Video Profiles.

Each of our adoptive families has their own adoption video profile that highlights their personalities, interests, other family members, pets, home, neighborhood, and most importantly, their excitement to become parents through adoption. Our video profiles are not slideshows – they are 2- to 4-minute mini-movies about anything and everything a birth mother may want to know about you, the adoptive family.

Through conversations with birth mothers, we have learned that these adoption videos:

Provide Families an Advantage of Being Chosen

Adoptive families who continue to only use a print profile or video slideshow risk being overlooked in favor of families with an Adoptive Family Video Profile. A growing number of pregnant mothers are only visiting agency websites with videos of their adoptive families.

Lower Chance of Disappointment

Adoptive families without an adoption video are essentially “interviewed” by birth mothers before they are officially chosen to pursue the same adoption plan. This results in immense disappointment if they ultimately are not chosen. Conversely, adoptive families with a video profile often avoid this disappointment because a birth mother can see their personalities firsthand and know if they are a good fit before choosing them.

Help a Birth Mother Stay Committed

Throughout the adoption process, birth mothers often re-watch the adoptive family’s video profile dozens of times to remind her of the life she has envisioned for her child and to keep her committed to her adoption plan.

Educate Others About Adoption

It’s common for birth mothers to have friends and family members who are against her adoption plan because they either don’t understand adoption or the types of families looking to adopt. Video profiles are an effective tool to help a birth mother educate her friends and family members about adoption and the family she has chosen to raise her child.

So, how does this process work? Check out the following brochure, Adoptive Family Video Profiles.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do we need to retain our own attorney?

No, American Adoptions has established relationships with some of the best adoption attorneys in the nation. Because adoption laws vary from state to state and between counties, it is important to utilize the services of an adoption attorney who specializes in the state where the adoption will finalize, which is unknown until you match with an expectant mother. You have the right to retain your own attorney, but doing so may be an additional, unnecessary expense.

Can we choose the gender of our baby?

American Adoptions accepts a limited number of families into our gender-specific program. Please contact us at 1-800-ADOPTION to learn whether we are currently accepting families into this program. With this option, families pay an additional Gender-Specific Fee to help our agency locate and work with birth mothers meeting this additional criterion. This fee is in addition to other program fees and covers additional advertising. The fee is not considered part of your adoption budget. Please note that gender specificity will likely increase your wait time significantly.
