Are There Adoptive Families Who Will Teach My Language?

Depending on your preferences, we can find you families who will be excited to teach your child your language. With over 30 years of experience helping women complete the adoption process, we know what it takes to help you find the best family for your baby.

Even if an adoptive family doesn’t speak the same language as you, they’re always willing to learn.  Here are some examples of languages that you may want your child to be taught as they grow up:

Spanish Adoptive Families

Spanish, a vibrant and widely spoken language, represents a vibrant variety of cultures. Families who raise their child in a Spanish-speaking environment open the doors to a language that’s filled with history and rich traditions. By learning Spanish, your child can engage with different Spanish cultures and can become familiar with the language spoken across continents.

Chinese Adoptive Families

The Chinese language consists of several other major dialects that include Cantonese, Hunanese, Min dialect, Gan dialect, Wu dialect and Kejia or Hakka dialect. Chinese families looking to adopt can introduce your child to this language celebrated for its depth, ancient wisdom and intricate calligraphy.

French Adoptive Families

The French language is known for its elegance and artistry. French families looking to adopt will teach your child the language that echoes through literature and art. Learning French at an early age can offer your child an advantage such as access to expanded educational opportunities. Being bilingual, especially with a language as influential as French, opens the door to a wide range of career opportunities.

Tagalog Adoptive Families

Tagalog, the national language of the Philippines, can introduce your child to a vibrant and diverse culture. Tagalog fosters a sense of belonging and pride in one’s heritage, strengthening family ties and nurturing an appreciation for the customs and celebrations that make Filipino culture unique. 

American Sign Language (ASL) Adoptive Families

American Sign Language is a visual language that opens up a world of communication for the Deaf community. ASL families looking to adopt create an environment that celebrates visual expression and inclusivity. ASL not only enables communication but also fosters a deep understanding and appreciation for Deaf culture.

We understand that while some families may not initially speak the language, they’re eager to learn and create a nurturing environment for your child. We’ll send you adoption profiles of families who speak your language, ensuring your child is raised with families who will celebrate their linguistic heritage and background.

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.
