In the meantime, the following information will help you find the perfect adoptive family for your baby.

What are you looking for in adoptive parents for your baby?

When some women decide to pursue adoption, they already have an ideal prospective adoptive family in mind. Others are less sure of what they envision for their baby, and that’s perfectly okay. If this is the case for you, your adoption specialist will help you consider the answers to questions like the following:

  • Does it matter to you if your child has siblings? Some women have strong memories of growing up in their own large families and want their babies to share that experience. Other women feel strongly about placing their babies with couples who haven’t been able to have children of their own yet.

  • Where do you picture your child growing up? Is it important to you to find adoptive parents in New Mexico? Or would you rather your child grow up in a larger city on the coast, or perhaps somewhere in the Midwest? American Adoptions works with families across the country, so wherever you picture your child being raised can become a reality.

  • Is it important to you that your child looks like his or her adoptive family? Naturally, because your child won’t share DNA with his or her adoptive family, there’s a limit to how much they will physically resemble each other. However, some women feel strongly that prospective adoptive families share their own cultural background.

  • What traits do you value in prospective adoptive parents? Think about the values you hold and whether or not you want your child to be raised in a similar way. For example, is it important to you that a prospective adoptive family share your religious or political beliefs?

Your answers to these questions and more will allow help your adoption specialist as she works with you to locate the perfect parents looking to adopt a newborn in New Mexico and across the United States.

New Mexico Adoption Profiles

After you’ve worked with your adoption specialist to let her know what you’re hoping to find in a prospective adoptive family, she’ll begin pulling adoption profiles of families waiting to adopt in New Mexico — or elsewhere in the U.S. — that meet your qualifications. Each family that works with American Adoptions creates two types of adoption profiles:

  1. Print profiles: A print profile will act as a sort of brochure that provides basic information about an adoptive family. It will go over factors such as what their home is like, their lifestyle, their decision to pursue adoption and more.

  2. Video profiles: If you’re intrigued by a family’s print profile, you’ll be able to learn more about them in their video profile. This allows you to watch a prospective adoptive family interact with each other on-screen, which will give you a better sense of the type of people they are and what your child’s life could be like if he or she was placed in their home.

Once you’ve gone through the adoption profiles and chosen a prospective adoptive family in New Mexico or elsewhere in the U.S., your adoption specialist will arrange a conference call so you can meet them. If the meeting goes well, you may be talking to your child’s future adoptive parents!

How does American Adoptions screen New Mexico adoptive families?

When talking about how to find adoptive parents for your baby in New Mexico, it’s also important to note how American Adoptions screens all prospective adoptive families.  If you are shown a family’s adoption profiles, that means they have already undergone:

  • An adoption home study, which includes background checks, a home inspection, and interviews with each family member that lives in the home.

  • Conversations with a social worker to commit to exchanging, at a minimum, updates on your child’s progress via phone calls and photos with you until your baby is 18 years old. Of course, this is based on your desire for communication with the adoptive family, and many families would prefer to have more contact with you if you’re open to it.

You will never be shown a prospective adoptive family unless we are positive they can provide a safe and stable home for your child.
