Find Hispanic Families Looking to Adopt

One of the many choices you can make when placing a baby for adoption through American Adoptions is the race of your child’s adoptive parents.

American Adoptions is here to help you find the adoptive parents that you feel a connection with and who you feel are best for your baby. While we work with adoptive families of all different racial heritages, religions and backgrounds, we can help you find the adoptive parents you’re looking for if the race of your child’s future family is something that you feel strongly about.

Reasons Why You Might Want Your Baby to be Raised in a Latino Family

Although a person’s skin color of course doesn’t affect their ability to love your child and be amazing parents, there may be reasons why you’re looking specifically for Latino or Hispanic adoptive parents. Maybe:

  • You want your baby to grow up in a bilingual household.

  • You want their parents to give them a connection to their racial or cultural heritage.

  • You value the traditions that you grew up with, and you feel a Hispanic family can better immerse your child in similar traditions.

Adoptive families of every racial heritage, including Hispanic families looking to adopt, would love to welcome your child into their family. Families don’t need to look alike to love one another. Many prospective birth parents choose to place their baby with a family of a race other their own because that was the family that they connected with the most strongly. Transracial adoption is more common than ever.

Where to Find Adoption Profiles of Hispanic Families Looking to Adopt

If you prefer to search specifically for Hispanic families looking to adopt, you can find adoptive families by their race here.

Every adoptive family on our website has already been approved to adopt through a series of strict clearances, including home studies, background checks and more. They’re all actively waiting to adopt, including Hispanic and Latino adoptive families who have been waiting for an expectant mother to choose them to be her baby’s parents!

Our adoptive families are at differing stages of the adoption process, so not all of them are at the point where they’re listed as “waiting” on our website. But you can call us at 1-800-ADOPTION if you haven’t found the perfect adoptive family on our website, and we’ll connect you with adoptive families who haven’t been listed yet who fit what you’re searching for.

You can learn more about the requirements of our adoptive parents and their screening process here.

How to Choose Your Child’s Parents

When trying to imagine your child’s ideal parents, it can be helpful to ask yourself some questions, like:

  • Where do you imagine your child and their family living?

  • What kind of personalities do you picture your baby’s parents having?

  • What kinds of hobbies might they enjoy as a family?

  • Is their family big or small?

  • How much contact do you want to share with the adoptive family after the adoption?

  • What else is important to you in prospective adoptive parents?

While we’re absolutely able to help you find Hispanic families looking to adopt, it’s especially important that you find adoptive parents whose personalities you feel are right for your baby, regardless of race.

Many expectant mothers searching for adoptive parents for their baby often say that they just “knew” when they saw their child’s future parents’ adoption profile! You can start by browsing through adoption profiles here.

Get to Know the Adoptive Family: Before, During, and After the Adoption

All of the adoptive families on our website have personal video profiles, so you can get a real view into the lives of Hispanic families looking to adopt. Your personal American Adoptions specialist can also help match you with families who fit your vision of your baby’s perfect parents, if you need some help.

See an adoptive couple that you’d like to get to know a little better? We can set you up with a phone call. You can communicate together until your delivery. Then, the adoptive parents can travel to you if you’d like them to be there for the baby’s birth.

After the adoption, you can continue your relationship with an open adoption or a semi-open adoption. How open you’d like your adoption to be is 100 percent your choice.

All of the choices in the adoption process are yours to make as a prospective birth parent. Those choices include the amount of post-adoption communication you’d like, selecting your baby’s parents and more. You can also choose the race of your child’s parents if it’s something that’s important 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.
