Find Adoptive Parents in Montana

How You Get to Choose the Adoptive Family for Your Baby

As an expectant mother considering adoption in Montana, you are in charge of the process. You create the adoption plan, you decide the hospital plan and, perhaps most importantly, you choose the adoptive parents who will adopt your baby.

It wasn’t always like this.

Adoption used to be cloaked in secrecy and associated with shame. A poor understanding of the adoption process and a negative cultural perception of unexpected pregnancy created a system where mothers who chose adoption had very little control. It was common for a mother to place her child for adoption without any idea where her baby would go. Thankfully, this type of adoption is a fixture of the past.

Today, potential birth mothers in Montana are in the driver’s seat of the adoption process. You deserve the right to be in charge of one of the most difficult decisions of your life. And you may be wondering, “How do I find adoptive parents in Montana?”

This guide will break down how you make one of the most significant decisions of the whole adoption process in Montana.

How to Find a Family to Adopt Your Baby in Montana

It’s not your job to find parents looking to adopt a newborn — it’s just your job to choose the adoptive parents who are perfect for your baby. That’s because the adoption agency you work with will present you with a group of prospective adoptive parents. In Montana, it is illegal for people looking to adopt or potential birth mothers to individually “advertise” for adoption. Only the state government or a licensed child-placing agency can do that.

So, the first step to finding adoptive parents in Montana is choosing an adoption agency that you trust, and that will provide you with the most opportunities to find the perfect family to adopt your baby. As a national adoption agency, American Adoptions works with thousands of families across the country who are looking to adopt. This means your choices won’t be limited by states lines, and you’ll have a better chance at finding the right fit.

What to Look for in Prospective Adoptive Parents in Montana

You may already know exactly what you are looking for in adoptive families, or you may be entirely unsure. Either way, an adoption specialist from American Adoptions will be there to help you find the right family in Montana. She’ll help you set the criteria, and then find parents who want to adopt a baby who are in line with what you are looking for.

It helps to envision the type of life you want for your baby. Think about questions like:

  • Where do I want my baby to grow up?

  • Do I want my child to have siblings?

  • Do I want my baby to grow up with pets?

  • What type of schools do I hope my child goes to?

There are plenty of other questions to ask as well. You are finding adoptive parents for your baby, and there’s no such thing as a bad question with something this important. If you hope to find adoptive parents who live in Montana, you may want to think about things like:

  • Do I want my baby to grow up in a bigger city like Missoula, or in a smaller town?

  • Do I want to find a family in a great school district like Gardiner High School?

Your adoption specialist will help filter through all your questions and find adoptive families in Montana who match the vision you have for your child.

How American Adoptions Screens Adoptive Parents in MT

You want to be completely sure that you are only seeing good families when you are looking for adoptive parents in Montana. American Adoptions thoroughly screens all the adoptive families we work with. Any adoptive parent profiles you see have:

  • Completed an adoption home study

  • Been evaluated by an adoption specialist

  • Committed to at least a semi-open adoption relationship

It’s also good to keep in mind that these families have been through a trying journey of their own. Many have walked through the grief of infertility. All families looking to adopt are investing significantly — both financially and emotionally — in the adoption process, and they are eager to welcome your baby into their family through adoption.

View Montana Adoption Profiles

After you’ve decided what you’re looking for in adoptive parents in MT, your adoption specialist will send you a group of adoption profiles who might be a good fit for your adoption. Thanks to American Adoptions’ team of media specialists, you’ll get a personal look at each family before making your decision. Not only will you be able to read through a family’s print profile to learn about who they are, but you’ll also be able to watch a video profile for every family. This is a great way to really get a feel for what the adoptive families are like before choosing.

Don’t let yourself become too stressed about whether or not you will pick the right adoptive parents in Montana. Many expectant mothers say they “just knew” when they were looking at the right family’s adoption profile.
