Find Caucasian Families Looking to Adopt

Every choice in your adoption plan is yours to make when you’re placing a baby for adoption through American Adoptions. These choices include things like:

  • Making a personalized hospital plan that outlines how you want your delivery to go and who you want to be there to support you.

  • How much post-adoption contact you want to share with your child and their family through an open adoption or semi-open adoption.

  • Choosing your child’s parents.

  • And more.

American Adoptions works with adoptive families of many different backgrounds, family types, races and religions. We accept birth and adoptive parents of all kinds — what matters is your love for your child.

If the race of your child’s future parents is something that you feel strongly about in addition to their personalities and values, we can help you find adoptive parents who fit into the dream that you have for your baby.

Where to Find Adoption Profiles of Caucasian Couples Looking to Adopt

The skin color of an adoptive parent has no bearing on their ability to love and cherish a child, of course. But if you are considering adoption for your baby and have reasons why you’re specifically looking for Caucasian adoptive parents, you can search adoptive couples by race here.

Remember that adoptive parents and their children will rarely look alike, as they’re not genetically related. But that doesn’t matter to adoptive families. A family doesn’t have to “match” to be full of love! Transracial adoptions are more common than ever. Adoptive parents of any race will be thrilled to love your child.

All of the adoptive families listed on our website are already cleared to adopt through a series of strict approval processes, including home studies, background checks and more. The adoptive couples shown are all actively waiting to adopt, including Caucasian adoptive families.

You can learn more about our adoptive parent requirements and screening process here.

How to Choose the Perfect Parents for Your Baby, Regardless of Race

If you don’t already have a clear idea of the kind of family you want for your baby, asking yourself some of the following questions can be helpful:

  • Where do you picture your child growing up? In a city? Out in the country?

  • What might your child’s parents be passionate about? What are their values or traditions?

  • Are there hobbies that you can picture your child participating in with their family?

  • Do you imagine your child’s having older or younger siblings?

  • How much post-adoption contact would you want to have with the adoptive family?

Call 1-800-ADOPTION to talk to an adoption specialist about what you’re looking for in an ideal adoptive family, and we’ll help you find the parents that feel right to you! You can also start browsing through online adoption profiles here.

Learning More About the Adoptive Family: Before, During, and After the Adoption

Through the adoptive family video profiles that all of our waiting families have, you can get a look into their everyday lives and see how your child might fit into that life.

If an adoptive couple catches your eye, we can arrange a phone call so you can get to know each other better. If you feel that they’re the right parents for your baby, you can communicate directly up until your delivery. They can travel to you for the baby’s birth if you’d like them to be there to welcome the baby.

You can also choose to continue your relationship after the adoption is complete through an open or semi-open adoption. You decide how much openness you feel comfortable with in your adoption; it’s entirely your choice.

In fact, all of the choices in the adoption process belong to you as a prospective birth parent. Everything from the amount of post-adoption contact you want to choosing your child’s parents is your call. This also includes choosing the race of your baby’s adoptive parents, if that’s something that’s important to you.

Contact us at 1-800-ADOPTION now to find adoptive families of every race, including Caucasian families looking to adopt.

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.
