Someone Please Adopt My Baby [Birth Parent FAQs]
As a prospective birth parent, you are in complete control of your adoption process. You get to decide:
- What type of adoption to pursue
- Where your child grows up
- Which family raises your baby
Whether you know exactly what you’re looking for in an adoptive family or you’re just beginning to think about the life you want for your child, you can meet all your goals when you choose adoption. We’re here to help you achieve them.
Below, you’ll find the answers to some FAQs from expectant birth parents who are looking for someone to “please adopt my baby.”
How Do I Find Someone to Adopt a Baby?
When you decide adoption is best for not only your child but also for yourself, the best place to start is by contacting an adoption professional from a reputable private adoption agency.
The type of agency you choose will depend upon your specific needs and goals for the process. You can work with either a national adoption agency or a local one.
With a national adoption agency, you have access to a pool of hopeful parents ready to adopt from all over the United States, giving you the best odds of finding the perfect family for your baby. Once you choose a family, they will travel to you.
Also, national agencies have more resources and services available than a local adoption agency, like 24/7 availability and support.
You can contact a national adoption agency today if you want more information about this type of professional.
On the other hand, local adoption agencies are limited to working with families located in your state or region. This proximity may allow for more in-person contact, but fewer comprehensive services.
Are There Families Waiting to Adopt?
And, there is a nearly endless list of families to choose from. You can find:
- Married couples
- Single parents
- Families wanting to adopt a baby of your ethnicity
- LGBTQ+ couples
- And so many others
Many families wait months or even years for the opportunity to raise a child. You canbrowse adoptive parents’ online profiles at any time.
Once you begin working with an adoption professional, they will help you create your adoption plan.
Every adoption is unique. And, you are always in full control of who adopts your child. You decide what to look for in an adoptive family.
When you’re viewing family profiles, you can filter your search through demographics like:
- Marital status
- And more
All adoptive families that work with a reliable adoption agency are properly screened, so you know your child will be placed with a safe, prepared family. If you see a family you have a good feeling about, then contact us today.
What If I Already Know the Family I Want to Adopt My Baby? Do I Need an Adoption Agency?
If you’re 100% certain about a family, then you can move forward with the match whenever you’re ready.
No matter the type of adoption you choose, an attorney must be involved to ensure the adoption abides by your state laws.
Expectant birth parents may choose independent adoption for various reasons, such as:
- A family member or close friend wants to adopt
- They are comfortable speaking directly with the adoptive family
- They want maximum flexibility in their adoption
If you don’t personally know someone whom you want to adopt your child, then an independent adoption can be difficult to navigate alone.
During the independent adoption process, you and the hopeful parents will work directly with a separate independent adoption attorney to complete the process.
The adoptive family should always be responsible for the independent adoption attorney fees, too.
Questions to Ask Couples Looking to Adopt
Once you feel confident about the family you’ve chosen, your adoption professional will set up an initial phone or Zoom call and mediate your conversations.
Although there are no right or wrong topics to discuss, below are some suggestions for what to ask adoptive parents:
- How did you and your spouse meet? (if applicable)
- What made you decide you wanted to adopt?
- Will there be a parent that stays home with the baby? If not, then what are your plans for childcare during the day?
- What does a typical day look like for you? What about the weekends?
- How much contact with me are you open to?
