Adoption is always an option for you regardless of your circumstances.

Adoption gives you the chance to find the perfect home for your baby.
Experiencing the adoption journey together helps create a life-long bond.
Adoption is a decision that changes the lives of everyone involved. A child finds the perfect home, a birth mother makes a decision based on love for her child and a hopeful adoptive family sees their dreams of bringing a child home come true.
American Adoptions knows the impact of adoption better than most, as many of our staff have their own personal stories. Take it from Scott Mars, our founder, and an adoptee himself:
“My mom and dad were a couple who weren’t able to become a mom and dad without adoption. Of all people in this world, my mom and dad deserve to be parents. And without adoption, they would not have been able to share their love, share their life, and give someone the life that I had.
“Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity.” You can watch Scott’s video to see his entire adoption story.

“Every picture, it brightens my day. There are two things I check every day, the blog and my Facebook,” Randi said. “When I see a random picture that she puts on there, it just makes me feel like she’s not forgetting about me, and keeping up with what she said she was going to do. I love still being able to have that connection with Juniper. I get all jittery thinking about it because it’s going to blow my mind when she’s five and she starts talking, and I can actually talk to her and have a conversation with her.”
Randi and her adoptive family have a strong relationship which started during the initial adoption process and because of that bond, she continues to see her daughter happy, healthy and reaching important milestones. More importantly, Randi can be a part of it.
