Choosing the Right Adoptive Family in the Southwest

Adoption and choosing the right family is a selfless decision and a very personal choice. Right now, it may feel like your life is spinning out of control. Through adoption, you can take back control to create the life you and your baby deserve. When you’re looking for Southwestern adoptive families, there are many that can offer your child a blend of diverse backgrounds, traditions and lifestyles.

Adoptive families in the Southwest often embrace a lifestyle centered on wellness, outdoor activities and a love for culturally significant sites. Whether you want your child to grow up with the Rocky Mountains within driving distance or in the desert where they can embrace the warmth year-round, we have plenty of families that can offer your child the Southwestern lifestyle you want them to have.

Embracing the Southwestern Lifestyle

There are many unique factors that come with Southwestern living. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast and want your baby to experience everything the region has to offer, then there are many activities your child can explore. From hiking scenic trails to exploring national parks, Southwestern adoptive families value being close to activities that your child can enjoy.

If you’re a sports fan, then your child can enjoy local teams like the Phoenix Suns, Texas Rangers, Denver Broncos or Utah Jazz. No matter what you’re looking for, your child will thrive and grow with a loving adoptive family of your choosing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is American Adoptions the right adoption agency choice for many birth mothers?

American Adoptions is one of the largest licensed adoption agencies in the United States. Each year, we work with thousands of women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and offer assistance to these women. Our large, caring staff is able to assist you seven days a week and provide you with one-on-one counseling about your pregnancy and available options.

You should choose an adoption agency where you feel completely comfortable with their services and staff. With American Adoptions, you will work with an Adoption Specialist who is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Adoption Specialist will be your advocate and will provide support and guidance as you create an adoption plan that is right for you.

How will the family tell my child about me and the adoption when my child is older?

Each family has their own style of introducing adoption to the child. When you are matched with an adoptive family, you can ask them this question. If you would like your Adoption Specialist to discuss it for you, just let her know. He or she can share your wishes or provide good ideas from other adoptive families.

You will also be able to share what you want your baby to know about you. You can complete a keepsake booklet to share hobbies, stories, photos of you and your family and a letter to your baby. The adoptive family can provide this to your child as he or she grows older. Be as creative as you like! Some birth mothers have even knitted a special blanket as a gift to their baby or given a similar symbol of their love.

The father of your baby can fill out the birth father's keepsake booklet or write a letter too. You may have other family members who would also like to share photos or a letter to the baby. This is your opportunity to pass on your and your family's love and to share your personality, history and reasons for choosing adoption. The adoptive family will treasure whatever information you provide and will share it with the baby at an appropriate age. In most adoptive homes, the word adoption is in the child's vocabulary early on, and adoption is celebrated in their lives.
