Find Asian Families Looking to Adopt

You can choose every important detail in the adoption plan that you create with American Adoptions when you’re placing a child for adoption, like:

  • Choosing how much contact you’d like to share with the adoptive family after the adoption.

  • Designing a personal hospital plan that outlines how you want your delivery to go.

  • Choosing your baby’s family.

  • And more.

For many expectant parents choosing adoption for their baby, the race and cultural heritage of an adoptive family is an important factor. American Adoptions works with birth and adoptive parents of all races, religions, family types and backgrounds. This means we’re able to help you find the adoptive parents that you’ve been dreaming of for your child, whether that’s an Asian adoptive family or loving parents of any race.

Why You Might Want Your Child to Be Raised by Asian Adoptive Parents

The race of an adoptive parent has no effect on their ability to love your child.

But sometimes there are reasons why you might want to search specifically for an Asian adoptive family for your baby. Maybe:

  • You’re Asian yourself, and you’re worried that your child will be the only person in their family or community of their race.

  • You want your child to be raised in a racially and culturally diverse environment.

  • You’d like your child to experience similar traditions or be raised with similar values that you experienced growing up.

Regardless of race, there are many adoptive families who will be thrilled to meet you and love your child. Families don’t have to look alike! Transracial adoptions are more common than ever, as prospective birth parents frequently choose adoptive families of a race other than their own because that was the family that they felt the deepest connection with.

How to Decide Which Parents are Right for Your Baby

While the race of prospective adoptive parents can sometimes be an important consideration when choosing parents for your baby, there are other things that are also important, like:

  • How open you’d like your adoption to be.

  • Where you imagine your baby and their family living.

  • The kinds of values you hope your baby will be raised with, the experiences they’ll have, etc.

  • Whether you picture you child in a large or a small family.

  • And more

When you call 1-800-ADOPTION, an adoption specialist can help you find Asian adoptive parents for your baby, but finding a family whose personality feels right is even more important. Start looking at adoption profiles here.

Getting to Know Your Child’s Family: Before, During, and After the Adoption

With our unique video profiles, you can get to know prospective adoptive families on a more personal level. If you see a couple looking to adopt who you feel a connection with, we can arrange a phone call between you and them.

You’ll be able to continue communicating directly throughout the remainder of your pregnancy until you deliver. You can invite the adoptive parents to be with you for the baby’s birth, if you like.

You can also choose to continue your relationship after the adoption through an open or semi-open adoption. The amount of post-adoption contact that you feel comfortable with is your choice, as is everything else in the adoption process.

Prospective birth parents like yourself are in charge of every decision that goes into the adoption planning process. You choose how much contact you’d like to have with your child and their family after the adoption, you choose your child’s parents, and you can also choose the race of the adoptive family, if you prefer.

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.
