Find Families Looking to Adopt Native American Kids
Families who are waiting to adopt through American Adoptions come from all different racial and cultural backgrounds and are excited to adopt children of all different races. But you may be specifically looking for families looking to adopt a Native American newborn.
We’ll help you find the adoptive family that you want for your child, regardless of race.
“I’m Thinking of Giving My Native American Child Up for Adoption… What Happens Next?”
The race of your baby and their prospective adoptive family has no impact on the amount of love that exists within a family. Transracial adoptions are more common than ever, and you can find families with American Adoptions of many different races who are excited to adopt a child of any ethnic background.
However, you may be concerned about specifically finding families wanting to adopt Native American children. Some reasons that other pregnant women of Native heritage have cited include:
Wanting to ensure that the adoptive family is prepared to raise your child in a way that respects their birth culture.
Wanting to find a racially- and culturally-conscious adoptive family that will be mindful of your child’s identity as a Native American.
Wanting to adhere to tribal laws and the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) when selecting adoptive parents for your child.
While there are many diverse adoptive families who are prepared to welcome a child of any racial heritage, you may be specifically searching for families looking to adopt American Indian kids, perhaps for reasons like those mentioned above.
No matter what you’re looking for in a potential adoptive family for your baby, we’ll help you find a family that matches that vision you have for your child. We’ll also help you navigate the ICWA process, because it’s important that you’re able to choose the family that you feel is right for your child, regardless of the race of the adoptive family.
