Whether you want to find adoptive parents in Wisconsin or anywhere else in the U.S., American Adoptions can help. You can call 1-800-ADOPTION any time to talk with an adoption specialist about what you’re looking for in a prospective adoptive family.

In the meantime, here’s what you should know before looking for adoptive parents in Wisconsin.

Decide What Type of Wisconsin Adoptive Families You’re Looking For

There are so many families waiting to adopt in Wisconsin and across the country — and they come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have specific criteria for your baby’s adoptive parents or you haven’t quite decided what you’re looking for, American Adoptions is committed to helping you in your search for adoptive parents.

As a part of your adoption plan, you will be able to tell your adoption specialist exactly what you’re looking for in an adoptive family. If you don’t know what you want your baby’s adoptive family to be like yet, that’s okay — your adoption specialist can help you determine what’s important to you when looking for adoptive parents in Wisconsin. You might answer questions like:

  • Do you specifically want to find parents looking to adopt a newborn in Wisconsin, or do you picture your child growing up in another part of the country?

  • Do you want your baby’s parents to share your racial or cultural background? Your traditions or religious beliefs?

  • What type of lifestyle do you want for your child? What types of values, hobbies and interests should their parents have?

  • Do you want your child to have older siblings, or would you rather find a family in Wisconsin with no other children?

Using your criteria, your adoption specialist will start searching for people who want to adopt in Wisconsin and throughout the country.

How to Find People Looking to Adopt in Wisconsin

Remember, your adoption specialist will be there to guide you through every step of how to find an adoptive family in Wisconsin (or anywhere else in the U.S.). Once she has learned more about the type of life and family you want for your baby, she will send you adoptive family profiles that might be a good fit for your adoption plan.

After reviewing as many profiles as you’d like, you can let your adoption specialist know when a family stands out to you. She will then coordinate a phone call so you can get to know the potential adoptive parents better.

If you like the adoptive family and want to move forward, you can continue building a relationship with them throughout your pregnancy. You’ll be able to exchange phone calls, email, text messages and possibly even meet them in person — whatever you’re comfortable with!

There are many wonderful families looking to adopt a baby in Wisconsin but, when you find the one that’s right for you and your baby, you will probably “just know” that it is meant to be. When you are ready to start the process of searching for adoptive parents in Wisconsin, you can call 1-800-ADOPTION or request free information online.

How Adoptive Parents in WI Are Screened

Even before you begin reviewing profiles and getting to know waiting adoptive families in Wisconsin, every adoptive family you come across will have gone through an extensive screening process with American Adoptions. Before your adoption specialist shows you a family’s profile, you can be assured that they have:

  • Been approved by a Wisconsin adoption home study, which includes extensive background checks, home visits and interviews with each family member to ensure they’re safe and ready to adopt.

  • Been evaluated through conversations with their own adoption specialist to determine their motivations and commitment to adoption.

  • Committed to whatever level of open adoption contact you are comfortable with before and after the adoption.

With American Adoptions, you can feel confident that all families that want to adopt in Wisconsin are excited about the process and are ready to provide a safe, stable and loving home to a child.

View Wisconsin Adoption Profiles

Your adoption specialist will present you with profiles of families waiting to adopt in WI who match your preferences and adoption plan. With American Adoptions, every waiting family has two types of profiles for you to review:

  • Written profiles: A family’s print profile is similar to a brochure. It includes photos and text written by the adoptive family to give you an overview of their day-to-day lives, their home, their reasons for choosing adoption and more. You can browse these adoption profiles online, and your adoption specialist will send physical copies, as well.

  • Video profiles: All waiting families for adoption in Wisconsin also create video profiles with American Adoptions. Through a family’s adoption video profile, you can see them in action and hear them talk about their adoption goals in their own voices.
