How to Find Adoptive Parents for Your Baby in Wisconsin [3 Steps]
Adoption agencies can help you find a family in Wisconsin through adoption matching services. This is how prospective birth parents and hopeful adoptive parents accept an adoption opportunity to create an adoption match.
Here’s how adoption matching services work:
Step 1: Choose an Adoption Agency
Finding the perfect adoption agency is the first and most important step. You can choose a local adoption agency in Wisconsin or a national adoption agency that works with hopeful adoptive parents across the U.S. Both types of adoption agencies generally offer you a full-service adoption experience.
Here are a few examples of local and national adoption agencies in Wisconsin that provide matching services:
- American Adoptions
- Adoption Choice, Inc.
- Gladney Center for Adoption
- Adoptions of Wisconsin, Inc.
- Beacon House Adoption Services
- Adoption Avenues, Inc.
Step 2: View Adoption Profiles
Adoption profiles are created by people looking to adopt a child. They have lots of pictures and information about the family, where they live, what they do for work, what they do for fun and more.
Your adoption agency will help you create an adoption plan that includes what type of adoptive parents you want your child to have. Your adoption specialist can help you by sending you adoption profiles that match the type of parents you want for your baby. This will help you narrow down your options of adoptive families to choose from.
There can be hundreds of adoptive families to choose from, especially when you work with a national adoption agency. This means you have a greater chance of finding the perfect adoptive parents anywhere in the U.S. But, if you want your child to live in Wisconsin, there are many hopeful adoptive parents in Wisconsin.
Step 3: Choose the Perfect Adoptive Parents
When you find an adoption profile that you like, your adoption specialist can contact those hopeful adoptive parents and let them know that you want them to adopt your baby. If the adoptive parents accept your adoption opportunity, then you have an adoption match.
This process may seem straightforward, but it’s not always easy to find an adoptive family that you think will fit your child’s needs. It may take several online adoption profiles, or more, before you find adoptive parents.
Many birth parents say that when they found their baby’s perfect adoptive parents, they quickly knew that they made the right choice. But, you can always get help from your adoption specialist if you’re having a difficult time choosing a prospective adoptive family.
How Families Who Want to Adopt are Screened
Hopeful adoptive families must go through a screening process to work with a licensed adoption agency. This is how you know that adoptive families are safe and ready to adopt.
Each state has their own adoption laws, but all states require adoptive parents and adoptive families to be screened.
Your adoption agency will require all adoptive parents to have:
- Background checks
- Medical record reviews
- Financial reviews
- Interviews with a social worker
- Home inspections
When you know that you are viewing profiles of safe adoptive families then you can have peace of mind that your child can live with adoptive parents who are prepared to start or grow their family.
What to Look for in Adoptive Parent Profiles
Hopeful adoptive parents in Wisconsin are dreaming of bringing a child into their home, so they want you to get to know them and see how they interact with each other and their family.
There is a lot of information that you can find in an adoption profile such as:
- What occupations the adoptive parents have
- If the adoptive parents have other children
- Where the adoptive parents live — in Wisconsin or in another state
- If the adoptive parents are religious
- Pictures of extended family and friends
- If the adoptive parents have pets
If you want to know more about some of the adoptive families then you can ask your adoption specialist for more information. If you have already found the perfect adoptive parents through online adoption profiles, you can contact the adoption agency that works with the family.
