Find Families Near Me Looking to Adopt

One of the most common reasons why women choose adoption is that they’re able to choose where their baby will grow up. Adoption lets you find a family who will provide your baby with the lifestyle you never had. When you choose adoption, you’re putting your baby’s needs before your own.

We understand that finding adoptive families near you can be both reassuring and essential in the decision-making process. Choosing a family that lives near you can bring comfort as you navigate your adoption journey. That’s why we’ll help you find loving adoptive families in your area.

Our Extensive Network of Families

Working with a national adoption agency like ours gives you access to a large network of loving, pre-screened adoptive families across the U.S. Our comprehensive database includes families from various backgrounds, cultures and locations. Whether you prefer finding adoptive families near you or across the country, we’ll help you find the perfect match.

Our extensive reach ensures you have access to a wide selection of families looking to adopt near you.

If you end up finding families who live across the U.S., then they’d be more than willing to help you travel to their state or can meet you wherever you are.

Maintaining a Connection through Open Adoption

In an open adoption relationship, you can be involved in your child’s life at whatever level you’re comfortable with. The beauty of finding families near you who want to adopt a baby is that you can easily stay updated on your child’s milestones and accomplishments.

You can stay connected to your child through:

  • In-person visits

  • Text

  • Phone calls

  • Video chat

  • Or whatever you’re comfortable with

It is completely up to you whether you want to maintain a connection. You can choose to be involved as little or as much as you want. Not every woman feels comfortable, and that’s OK. The decision is completely up to you.

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.
