Below are some of the most frequently asked questions from pregnant women who are looking for adoptive parents in Oklahoma. The answers to those questions may help you learn a bit more about how to find an adoptive family for your baby that you feel comfortable with:
How many families want to adopt in Oklahoma?
Estimates suggest there are 2 million couples looking to adopt in the U.S. This would mean that for every baby placed for adoption, there are 36 adoption waiting families hoping for that child. There are so many waiting adoptive families in Oklahoma and across the United States to choose from who have been waiting to meet you.
Can I pick a family to adopt my baby in Oklahoma?
Absolutely. One of the most important decisions you’ll make in the adoption process is choosing the perfect Oklahoma family waiting to adopt.
Your adoption specialist will work with you to talk about what you’re looking for in a potential family for your baby, and they’ll narrow down Oklahoma adoption profiles for you based on those adoption goals. Then they’ll show you profiles of families who are the closest matches for what you’re looking for until you feel like you’ve found the perfect parents. The choice is 100 percent yours.
You’ll also have the opportunity to get to know your baby’s family, and have an ongoing relationship with them, if you choose to.
Can people from a different state adopt my baby, or do they have to live in Oklahoma?
Whichever you prefer! National adoption agencies like American Adoptions allow you to choose from adoptive families in OK or in any state you want. Some birth parents prefer to choose an adoptive family in Oklahoma. Some birth parents choose a family who lives outside of the state because they want more distance in their adoption. That’s up to you and what you’re most comfortable with.
All prospective adoptive parents with American Adoptions, no matter where they live, are prepared to travel to you in Oklahoma to be with you for the baby’s birth in addition to post-adoption visits if you’d like them to be there.

What is the religion of the adoptive parents? Can I choose the religion of my baby’s adoptive family?
For some birth parents, the faith of a prospective adoptive family is an extremely important consideration in their choice. We work with adoptive couples of many different religions, so it’s always a good chance that there are adoptive families who share your beliefs and values if it’s important to you that your baby is raised by a family of a certain religion.

How do I choose someone to adopt my baby in Oklahoma?
Everyone has their own list of ideal qualities to look for in the “perfect” adoptive family for their baby. Those qualities will be different for everyone.

Sometimes it can help to ask yourself a few basic questions to narrow down what you’re looking for in an adoptive family in Oklahoma, and start from there. Consider:
Where do you imagine them living?
What do you think your child’s parents might be like? What are their interests?

Talk to your American Adoptions specialist about what you think is most important in your child’s potential adoptive parents, and they’ll help you find adoptive families in Oklahoma and throughout the United States who fit that description.
