Types of Adoptive Families Wanting to Adopt in Texas
When it comes to choosing the perfect adoptive family for your baby, you might have a certain type of couple in mind. Maybe that’s a same-sex couple, a couple with no children or even a single parent; these are all options for you when you work with American Adoptions. You can find more information about finding an adoptive family by type and the various benefits on our website.
Gay Couples Looking to Adopt in Texas
If you’re wondering “Can I find a gay couple to adopt my baby in Texas?” the answer is absolutely! There is no Texas statute preventing same-sex adoption. Many adoption agencies work with gay couples looking to adopt and would be more than happy to help you place your baby with one of these families. So, how do you find LGBT adoption families?
When you sit down with your adoption specialist to discuss the qualities you’d like in your baby’s adoptive family, just tell them that you’d like to place your child with a same-sex couple. Your adoption specialist will then be able to compile adoptive family profiles of gay adoption families for you to look through.
“We’ll absolutely keep up with our pictures and letters and do them from a positive, happy place of love so that she knows she’s not judged. We’re planning on also including in the letters, ‘Should your needs ever change, just let us know; we’d be happy to talk about engaging,’ so she knows that it’s not a closed window, it’s open,” said Paul, a dedicated LGBT adoptive parent.
Married Couples Looking to Adopt in Texas
If you’re set on finding a married couple looking to adopt a child, you’re in luck. Many adoption agencies, like American Adoptions, require that their prospective adoptive couples be married for at least two years before they adopt. This ensures a better likelihood that they’ve learned how to work together and adjust to married life.
When you start creating your adoption plan, you will be able to sit down with your adoption specialist and layout what qualities you would like your baby’s prospective adoptive family to have, including whether or not they are a married adoptive couple.
Your adoption specialist will find adoptive family profiles of married couples that match your preferences, and you will be able to choose the family who you think will give your baby the best life possible. You will even be able to meet them before the baby is born if you are comfortable doing so.
Couples with or without Children Looking to Adopt in Texas
Maybe you already have a specific reason in your head, or maybe you can’t quite put your finger on why your child having older siblings is important to you. Maybe it helps to know that the couple already has parenting experience or maybe you just want your child to grow up with siblings. Whatever your reason is, finding a couple with children looking to adopt is definitely possible.
Your adoption specialist will match your preferences to hopeful adoptive family profiles that align with what you’re looking for. You will be able to look through these profiles yourself and choose the perfect family for your child.
If you’re on the other end of the spectrum and prefer that the couple who adopt your child not have any children, this is also possible.
“In the back of my head, I wondered, having had biological children, what I was going to feel like toward Ethan. Sue and I have basically said to each other a few times that he doesn’t ever seem like he was anything but our child. It seems like he’s always been ours… It’s amazing the feeling of having someone in the family that kind of appeared out of nowhere. He feels like he’s always been here,” said Scott, a grateful adoptive father.
You might be considering a couple with no kids so that you can give them the opportunity to have the family of their dreams. This is an incredibly selfless choice, and your adoption specialist will gladly make this happen for you. Many first-time adoptive families want nothing more than to raise a child with all the care and support they can offer. You can guarantee your child will grow up with all the love they deserve.
