American Adoptions works with families of all types, budgets, etc., but there are still times when our agency is unable to match a prospective birth mother with one of our current active families.
The reasons for this are varied and can be due to the living expenses needs of the birth mother, the social or medical history of the birth parents or even because the birth parents are seeking a family meeting a specific criteria. Please watch the video below where Adoption Specialist Kathie shares more about these adoption situations, including:
- What is the Adoption Resource Center?
- Where do these Available Situations come from?
- What requirements are needed to pursue an Adoption Situation?
- What information will the adoptive family receive about the birth parents?
- We are ready to pursue an Adoption Situation – what’s next?
Visit our Available Situations webpage to see if you are interested in any of the current situations that we have been unable to match with any of our active families.
American Adoptions urges all adoptive families currently working with our agency to periodically check the Available Situations page and contact our agency if they would like their profile to be shown for a specific situation. Our Available Situations are an excellent opportunity for waiting families, even those with whom we have not yet worked with.
However, it’s important to note that in order to be considered for an Available Situation, all families must have a current, approved home study and some form of profile we can show the birth mother so she can learn more about you. Click here to view our Available Situations.
