Families Looking to Adopt an Asian Newborn in the U.S.

If you’re pregnant and considering adoption for your baby, finding the right adoptive parents for your child is one of the most important choices you’ll make during the course of your adoption plan. Some women are worried about finding a family that is prepared to raise a child of a particular race.

Through American Adoptions, you can choose to specifically search for waiting adoptive families who are looking to adopt an Asian newborn in the U.S. by going here. We’ll help you find the perfect family who is excited to adopt an Asian baby or a child of any racial heritage. Contact us now at 1-800-ADOPTION to learn more about adoptive couples looking to adopt an Asian child.

Where to Find Families Looking to Adopt Asian Kids

Neither the race of a child nor the race of their future parents will affect the love that they share as a family. Transracial adoptions are more common than ever and are becoming increasingly popular.

Finding an adoptive family that looks like your child certainly isn’t necessary, as it has no effect on an adoptive parent’s ability to love and care for your baby as they would any child. Families don’t have to “match,” and more and more expectant mothers are choosing adoptive parents of a different race to adopt their baby.

However, some pregnant women are concerned about finding families wanting to adopt Asian children specifically. For example, maybe you want an adoptive family who is prepared to raise your child in a culturally- and racially-aware home, so that your child has a strong sense of their racial identity. Maybe you want adoptive parents who are prepared to raise your child in a more ethnically diverse environment, so that your child has racial mirrors in their life.

Whatever your reasons are for searching specifically for couples looking to adopt an Asian child, we can help you find the family that you feel is the right fit. To do this, contact us online or at 1-800-ADOPTION now.

Getting to Know the Adoptive Parents Before, During, and After the Adoption

Not all of the adoption profiles for families looking to adopt Asian kids are listed on our website yet, so when you call us, we’ll be able to send you additional profiles of families that we think you might be interested in getting to know better. If you see a family that you feel a connection with, we’ll arrange a conference call so that you can speak with them.

Once you’ve found a waiting adoptive family that you feel is right for your baby, you’ll have the opportunity to get to know them before, during and after the adoption through phone calls, texts, emails, letters, photos or however you feel comfortable communicating. Your adoption can be as open or as closed as you prefer. As a potential birth parent, you decide what kind of relationship you want to have with your child and their adoptive family.

Remember that all of American Adoptions’ waiting adoptive families are:

  • thoroughly screened to ensure they’re fully prepared to adopt and can provide a safe, loving home to your child

  • excited at the prospect of developing an ongoing relationship with you, if you are comfortable

  • presented to you only if your adoption specialist feels they will be a good fit for your baby

When you work with an adoption specialist at American Adoptions, she can send you profiles of adoptive parents who are specifically prepared for and excited about the opportunity to raise a child with Asian heritage.

There are many families wanting to adopt Asian children and children of all races. We’ll help you find the family that you’ve been searching for.

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.
