Why All American Adoptions Families Have a Video Profile

The Benefits of Adoptive Family Video Profiles

Andy and Katy have already completed their adoption. Please click the following to view more families.

American Adoptions believes the only way to form healthy, long-lasting relationships is with trust. The best way for you to build this trust is to learn everything you can about an adoptive family.

Our Adoptive Family Video Profiles are the best way for you to learn a lot about adoptive parents within only a few minutes. In each family’s video profile, you will learn about their:

  • personalities and how they interact with each other and with a child

  • house, neighborhood and community

  • traditions, like family dinners, vacations or other hobbies to share with a child

  • excitement in becoming parents through adoption

As you can see in the video above, our video profiles are not slideshows like many other agencies’ adoption videos. Our video profiles are actual profiles because you get a snapshot into families’ lives with footage they have filmed themselves. There is no better way to help you find a family for adoption.

American Adoptions is currently the only national adoption agency where every family has a video profile. With over 200 video profiles on our website at a time, you are assured to find a family who perfectly matches the life you want for your baby.

Our families truly want to get to know you, but for that to happen, you must first get to know them. This is why video profiles are the future of adoption, and why American Adoptions is the leader in video profile production.

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.
