Adoptive Parent(s) Profile
At Adoption Network Law Center, Adoptive Parentsí commitment to providing a warm and loving family is what counts. There are no arbitrary principles regarding:
Many Adoptive Parents fear that they will not be chosen by a Birth Mother unless they meet an ideal set of standards. In truth, many Birth Mothers are not looking for a specific age, religion or other criteria. They see your letters, and usually connect with profiles because of particular shared feelings and values. ANLC will assist you in preparing a personal profile to attract the attention of Birth Mothers who share common values.
Adoption Network Law Centerís team of quality professionals always provides support in dealing with the reality of infertility and the prospect of an adoptive placement. The ANLC team is here to help you deal with the real fears and anxieties regarding the adoption process.
Adoption Network Law Center embraces and enthusiastically celebrates the Birth Mothers who have courageously come forth to place their child for adoption. Birth Mothers should be applauded for their unselfishness, contentment with their decision and for the satisfaction they display in knowing they have chosen a wonderful family to provide their baby with a stable life.
However, waiting for the right Birthparent(s) can be more challenging if the Adoptive Parent(s):
Already have many children
Are over the age of 50
Have limited financial support for a Birth Mother
Have a nontraditional lifestyle
Will only adopt a specific gender
Are extremely particular about a Birth Mother's appearance or lifestyle
The typical Birth Mother usually:
Is in good health and may have had some prenatal care
Does not use drugs or alcohol and she tests negative for HIV and Hepatitis C
Is between 18 to 30 years of age
Is already parenting at least one other child, and has little financial or emotional support
Is nervous about the adoption process and concerned with what the child will think of her for choosing adoption
Has a goal to find a stable family to love her baby forever. The thought of foster care frightens her
Fears that the Adoptive Parents will back out of the adoption plan. Be understanding and supportive of the anxiety that may result from this fear
