Find an Adoptive Family in Oregon

We’re here to help you find the perfect parents looking to adopt a newborn in Oregon for your baby, no matter what kind of family you envision for your child.

By working with a national adoption agency like American Adoptions, you can search for adoptive parents in Oregon as well as throughout the U.S. There are couples waiting to adopt near you in Oregon and in every state, so you’re always guaranteed to find an adoptive family that matches what you’ve been looking for.

The following are some of the most frequently asked questions that pregnant women have asked when looking for adoptive parents in Oregon, and the answers to their questions:

How many families want to adopt in Oregon?

Estimates say that there are 2 million couples looking to adopt in the U.S. For each baby placed for adoption, 36 adoption waiting families are hoping that baby will join their family. This means that you’ll always have plenty of waiting adoptive families who are hoping to meet you in Oregon and throughout the United States.

Can I pick a family to adopt my baby in Oregon?

Of course! Choosing which family waiting to adopt will become your baby’s family is an important decision, and that decision belongs to you. It’s all part of your adoption planning process, which your adoption specialist can help walk you through.

Can people from a different state adopt my baby, or just families in Oregon?

When you work with a national adoption agency like American Adoptions, you can choose from adoptive families in OR or in any other state. It’s entirely your choice. Sometimes birth parents choose an adoptive family in Oregon because they like that the family lives nearby, while other people choose a family who lives outside of Oregon because they feel more comfortable with more distance in their adoption.

It’s important to note that regardless of what state they live in, all American Adoptions adoptive parents are ready to travel to you for your baby’s birth, as well as post-adoption visits, if you’d like that.

You can search adoptive couples by their state of residence here.

What is the religion of the adoptive parents? Can I choose a family of a certain faith?

The spirituality of an adoptive family is very important for many birth parents, particularly if faith is something that’s important in their own lives. American Adoptions works with adoptive couples of many different faiths, so there are likely adoptive families in Oregon or another state who share the same religious beliefs and personal values as you do.

How do I choose someone to adopt my baby in Oregon?  

Every expectant parent will have their own version of the “perfect” adoptive family for their baby. Maybe you already have some idea of what you’re looking for in your child’s prospective family, or maybe it’s still unclear for you. Asking yourself some of the following questions can help:

  • What do you imagine your child’s parents being like?

  • Do you imagine your child growing up with siblings?

  • Where do you picture your child growing up with their family?

  • How often do you want to talk to or see your child and their family after the adoption is complete?

Let your American Adoptions specialist know what you want in potential adoptive parents, and they’ll help you find adoptive families in Oregon and throughout the U.S. who fit that description.

Where can I find OR adoption profiles to look at?

You can view families who are already approved to adopt by the state of Oregon as well as on a federal and agency level here. Call 1-800-ADOPTION now if you’d like to know more about any of these waiting families in Oregon or throughout the U.S.
