Did you know that you have the ability to choose characteristics in the adoptive family? When placing your baby for adoption you can tell your caseworker attributes you would like to see in potential adoptive parent/s.

The process known as “matching” allows the birth parents to express preferences and desires regarding the adoption.

Some things to consider –

  • Religious background
  • Family type – husband/wife, same-sex, or single?
  • Location
  • Race
  • Hobbies/Interests
  • Parenting Techniques
  • Openness in communication

By sharing your preferences with your caseworker or adoption agency, you can help ensure that your child is placed in a loving and supportive environment that aligns with your wishes and values. This collaborative approach empowers our birth parents to make informed decisions and play an active role in shaping their child’s future.
