Your Next Steps
You can take the next step toward creating a better future by speaking to a specialist, receiving financial assistance, and creating an adoption plan.
Beginning the adoption process with American Adoptions can be done in 3 clear steps.
Below, we will prepare you for what to expect and how to proceed. You can also find a more in-depth breakdown of the adoption process steps here.
Step 1: Contact Your Adoption Agency and Talk to Your Specialist
There are two ways you can do this:
- Click here to fill out a short form that will put you in touch with a specialist. You’ll also receive helpful information and a customized list of potential adoptive families.
- Call 1-800-ADOPTION at any time. This is an especially good option if you need help right away.
Once connected, your American Adoptions specialist is your No. 1 support during the adoption process and acts as your personal assistant from start to finish. By creating a customized adoption plan, they will help you think through all the reasons you’re choosing adoption, ensure you have the resources you need, and set up adoption financial assistance to help take care of rent and bills.
For over 30 years, we’ve supported thousands of women through adoption. Our free services will help you feel safe, respected, and confident during this process.
Step 2: Look at Adoption Profiles and Choose the Right Family
You can start looking at adoptive family profiles right away or wait as long as you want. The timing of this part of the process is totally up to you.
If you’d like, we can send you a customized list of family profiles based on specific characteristics of a family you hope to find. Because we work with pre-screened families from all across the United States, you’ll be able to find just the right one for your baby.
Once you've found the perfect family based on your needs and preferences, you can focus on your vision of the future life for your child and build a meaningful relationship with the family. Meanwhile, your adoption specialist will focus on the steps of the adoption process and provide you the support you need when you need it.
Step 3: Start Receiving Financial Assistance
You shouldn’t have to worry about important expenses during adoption. That’s why our services are completely free, and you can receive assistance for help with rent and bills.
You can only receive this assistance after you’ve begun the adoption process. This is important to understand because we want you to receive as much assistance as possible as quickly as possible.
Take The Next Step
As you move through the process, you’ll be able to dream bigger about what your future holds while your adoption specialist handles everything else. By choosing adoption, you can create a brighter future for you and your baby — while also helping two hopeful parents start the family they’ve been waiting for.
