Can people from a different state adopt my baby, or do they have to live in Utah?

When you work with a national adoption agency, you can choose from adoptive families who live anywhere in the U.S. Some birth parents prefer to choose an adoptive family in Utah, while others prefer an adoptive family who lives further away, in another state. This all comes down to what you’re comfortable with.

It’s important to note that all adoptive parents with American Adoptions are prepared to travel to wherever you live in Utah for the birth as well as for post-adoption visits. You can search adoptive couples by their state of residence here.

What is the religion of the adoptive parents? Can I choose the religion of the family who adopts my baby?

The faith of an adoptive family is an important factor for many birth parents. American Adoptions works with adoptive couples of many different religions, so if you want your baby to be raised by a family of a particular religion, we can help you find an adoptive family that shares your spiritual beliefs and personal values.
