Adoption today offers more choices than ever before. Expectant/birth parents can now choose an adoptive family for their baby. However, this decision can feel overwhelming. Right now, you may have questions like: How do I find someone to adopt my baby? How can I ensure they are a good fit? How do I know my baby will go to a safe and loving home?
As an expectant/birth mother, you likely want to find a good, caring family to care for your baby. You want your child to be loved and supported throughout his or her life. Right now, you know that you are not ready to be a parent. You may not be able to meet a baby’s needs at this moment in time. Adoption is a positive option for you.
However, it is important that you do not take to social media to find a family. You do not want to do a Google Search for “looking for someone to adopt my baby,” and choose the first couple you see on the web. You want to make sure you do your research, to ensure your baby is placed with a loving and stable family. You want to make sure the adoption is legal, safe, and permanent – in the best interests of you and your baby. That is where a private adoption agency can help.
Finding a Family to Adopt Your Baby
At Adoptions With Love, there is a lengthy process that prospective adoptive parents must go through before getting approved to adopt. For each family, our trained staff completes a thorough screening process that involves background checks, multiple interviews, and home visits (called a home study). At our agency, every single expectant/birth mother can be as involved as she wants to be throughout the adoption process – even down to selecting the very family who will adopt her baby. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and thinking, ‘I need someone to adopt my baby,’ then read on for advice on how to find the perfect match.
Thanks to the modern world we live in, information can be shared in an instant over the Internet. However, this can also bring some risks. Expectant/birth parents who take to the World Wide Web to search or post “looking for someone to adopt my baby” put both themselves and their baby at risk for unwanted results – the families that show up or respond to your search may not have been screened, background checked, or legally approved to adopt. That is why we recommend working with a licensed, well-trusted adoption agency like Adoptions With Love, to help ensure your child is placed with a safe, loving, and prepared adoptive family. Our organization is fully committed to placing every child in the best, most caring and secure homes possible.
Choosing the best adoption agency for you is an important part of this process. Adoptions With Love is a full-service, private, non-profit organization that offers comprehensive, free-of-cost services for expectant/birth mothers nationwide. Our trained social workers will work with you to make an adoption plan that best suits your wishes and needs. We will help you find adoptive parents that meet your expectations, and that can provide the type of home you want for your child. We will guide you 100-percent of the way, both now and after the adoption takes place.

At Adoptions With Love, we want you to feel supported and guided throughout this emotional journey. Together, we will go over all your adoption options, including how open or closed you would like the adoption to be, and give you profiles of the waiting families looking to adopt. You can take time to look through their profiles, read their personal letters to you, and choose the family that feels “right.” If you wish, you may even meet and get to know a prospective family. These decisions are entirely up to you.
In finding the perfect family for your baby, we will ask you questions such as:
- What kind of qualities do you hope your child’s adoptive parents will have?
- What kind of home do you want your baby to have?
- What kind of childhood do you envision your child enjoying?
- Are there any specific values you hope the parents will instill in him/her?
These are some of the many questions to consider when deciding on an adoptive family. You may also think about whether you want your child to have siblings, or pets, or parents of a certain race or religion. Thanks to the comprehensive profiles and photo books made by prospective parents, Adoptions With Love can share all this information with you. We will take the time to discuss your vision, to help you find the perfect fit. After hand-picking the right family, you may also choose to talk with them over the phone, or meet them in person, to get a better sense of who they are.
