Find an Adoptive Family in New Hampshire

When choosing adoption in New Hampshire, what kind of parents do you imagine for your child? Whatever your version of the ideal family looks like for your baby, we’ll help you find it. We can help you find adoptive parents looking to adopt a newborn in New Hampshire or anywhere in the U.S.

When you work with a national adoption agency like American Adoptions, you can choose from more couples waiting to adopt in NH and throughout the entire country rather than having to limit yourself to just adoptive parents in New Hampshire like you would with local adoption agencies. This way, you’re also more likely to find an adoptive family that matches what you’re looking for.

When you complete this free online form or call 1-800-ADOPTION, you can get helpful information about how to find the perfect family for your child and how you are in control of the entire process.

These are some of the most frequently asked questions from pregnant women looking for adoptive parents in a New Hampshire adoption:

How many families want to adopt in New Hampshire?

Estimates suggest that there are about 2 million couples looking to adopt in New Hampshire and throughout the country. For each child placed for adoption, there are 36 waiting families hoping that this will become their child. This means that there are always plenty of hopeful adoptive families for you to choose from, whether they live in New Hampshire or anywhere in the U.S. We can help you find the parents that you feel are right for your baby!

Can I pick a family to adopt my baby in New Hampshire?

Absolutely. Choosing a family waiting to adopt in New Hampshire (or in any state) is just one decision within the adoption process that you’ll make. In fact, every decision that’s made throughout the adoption belongs to you.

Can people from a different state adopt my baby, or do they have to live in New Hampshire?

By working with a national adoption agency like American Adoptions, you can choose from adoptive families who are waiting in any state, unlike local agencies, where you’re limited to choosing from families within the immediate area of NH. So while some birth parents decide to choose an adoptive family in New Hampshire, others feel more comfortable with more distance, so they choose a family who lives in another state. It’s your choice.

All of the adoptive parents with American Adoptions are willing to travel to you for the birth of the baby in addition to traveling for post-adoption visits. You can search adoptive couples by their state of residence here.

What is the religion of the adoptive parents? Can I choose the religion of the family who adopts my baby?

For many birth parents, the faith of their child’s potential adoptive family is something that’s very important to them.  American Adoptions work with adoptive couples of many different faiths, so it’s likely that there are waiting adoptive families who share your spiritual beliefs and values. If having your baby be raised by a family of a certain religion is important to you, we can connect you with a family of that faith.

You can search for adoptive couples online by their religious affiliation here.

How do I choose someone to adopt my baby in New Hampshire?  

No matter what you’re looking for in the “ideal family” for your child, we can help you find those parents. If you’re not sure about the kind of adoptive parents you’re looking for, it can be helpful to ask yourself some questions like:

  • Where do you picture your child and their family living?

  • Do you hope that your child will have siblings?

  • Do you imagine them growing up with family pets?

  • What do you think their parents might be like? What are their parents’ interests, passions or values?

  • How often do you want to stay in touch with your child and their family after the adoption?

When you contact us, you’ll be able to talk to your personal adoption specialist about the kind of qualities you’re looking for in prospective adoptive parents, and they’ll show you adoption profiles of waiting families who match that vision you have in your head.

I know people who want to adopt a baby in New Hampshire — what do I do next?
