How to Find a Family to Adopt my Baby in Texas

If you’re wondering what the best way to find adoptive parents is, there are four steps you can follow to find the perfect match for your baby.

Step 1.  Think about Your Ideal Prospective Adoptive Parents

Before you begin to find a family to adopt your baby, think about what qualities you want your baby’s potential adoptive family to have.  What do you want your baby’s home life to be like? What traditions would you like them to grow up around? Do you want them to have siblings? These are just a few of the things you should take into consideration when looking for an adoptive family in Texas.

Step 2. Find Adoptive Parents with an Agency

If you’re unsure of where to start where to start when finding a family to adopt your child in Texas, we can help you.  All hopeful adoptive families who work with American Adoptions are thoroughly screened to ensure they are prepared to raise a child. An adoption agency, like American Adoptions, can help you create an adoption plan that will include what you’re looking for in an adoptive family. They can also set up with the resources you need to find an adoptive family for your baby.

But, not all adoption agencies will give you the same options when it comes to finding a family to adopt your child.

When you work with a national adoption agency like American Adoptions, we can help you find a family to adopt your baby in Texas in a shorter amount of time, and give you many more options. National agencies work with hopeful adoptive families with various backgrounds from all around the country. This enables you to find the family that checks all of your boxes.

Step 3. Look Through Adoptive Family Profiles

Once you’ve connected with an adoption specialist that will guide you on your adoption journey, you can begin to find a family to adopt your baby. Once you have an idea of what you’re looking for in prospective adoptive parents, you can sit down with your adoption specialist to look profiles of adoptive families. Adoptive family profiles can come in print, video and digital format and will tell you all about the hopeful adoptive family and what kind of life they could provide your child.

When you find a family for your baby in Texas, your adoption specialist will introduce you to them so you can determine if they’re the ones. You can look through as many adoptive family profiles as you need until you find a family that you feel is a perfect match. This is an important decision, so take as much time as you need.

Step 4. Get to Know the Adoptive Family

Once you find a family for your baby, you can begin to get to know them whenever you’re ready. Your adoption specialist can help you with this by arranging a phone call where you and prospective adoptive family can talk and get to know each other. From there, you can decide to continue communicating with the hopeful adoptive family throughout your pregnancy via text, phone calls, emails, etc.

“We had a conference call between us and my adoption specialist for our first conversation. I was so nervous, but as soon as we started talking it just confirmed my choice of them as my child’s parents,” said Kelly about getting to know the family who would adopt her child. “We had a great connection from the beginning, and we even picked out the same name without the other knowing. I believe it was meant to be and God brought this couple into my life for my child and vice versa.”

What Questions Should I Ask Couples Looking to Adopt in Texas?

We know you probably have a lot of questions you’d like to ask the hopeful adoptive family who wants to adopt your child. You might not know where to start. Here are a few questions that you should consider asking prospective adoptive parents:

  • How much contact with me are you open to after the adoption is completed?

  • How are you going to talk to my child about their adoption in your house?

  • Do you practice any religion?

  • What made you decide to pursue adoption?

  • What does a typical day look like in your household?

These are just a few possible questions you can ask potential adoptive parents. If you ever need any assistance with communicating with the prospective adoptive parents, your adoption specialist can help mediate or make any necessary arrangements you need.
