Find a Family by Ethnicity
As you search for the perfect waiting adopted family, ethnicity may be one of the factors you consider. While an adoptive parent’s race or ethnicity of course has no effect on the kind of parent they’ll be, there are many reasons why a prospective birth mother might look for a family of a certain ethnicity to adopt her baby. Maybe she wants her baby to grow up in a family that shares his or her background. Or, maybe she wants her child to benefit from having parents from different racial or cultural heritages.
Whatever your reasons for searching for adoptive parents of a particular race, ethnicity or adoptive family culture, know that that is one of the many choices you have when you create an adoption plan.
