Getting Started With Your Parent Profile

Here’s everything you need to know to get your parent profile up so you can find your perfect birthmother match.

Prerequisites

All parents listed on this site must provide proof of a completed home study conducted by a state licensed social worker.

All parents listed on this site must be represented by a licensed adoption agency or adoption attorney.

Pick a Plan

We provide a range of great profiles plans to meet your budget.

The Basic Plan gives you a great full-featured profile. Your profile appears after Plus and Premier profiles on our Hopeful Parents profiles page, but our endless scroll design makes it fun for users to keep discovering.

The Plus Plan gives you a full profile but with a few more features providing even more value and reach. You get several featured placements on our site as well as placement on Reach Adoption social networks. Your profile appears second on our Hopeful Parents profiles page, after Premier profiles.

The Premiem Plan takes your profile and reach to the top level with placement on our homepage and a specialized Google banner ad campaign. Your profile appears first on our Hopeful Parents profiles page.

Create Your Profile

Once you’ve chosen a plan, you will be directed to our easy-to-use profile builder that includes:

Basic facts – All the basics a birth mother needs to know: adoption wishes, ages, occupations, hobbies, etc.

Your Letter – Your letter provides potential birthmothers an overview of who you are, why you want to adopt and most importantly, why would be good parents. Don’t be afraid to stand out and let your personality shine through.

Pictures –The power of photographs is unparalleled. They are the first, and often the only thing, that potential birthmothers will look at. Read more about choosing great pictures.

Be a Social Marketer

As your adoption advocates, it’s our mission to provide you with a wide audience of potential birthmothers, but many matches are also found through friends-of-friends. We advise:

Leveraging your social networks, both online and off, to find a child.

Tell everyone you know about your search.

Share your profile frequently to your online social networks and ask in your posts for others to share it and “like” it too.

Make Your Connection – Step by Step

When a potential birthmother is interested, she will reach out to you, or your designated representative, by phone or email.

Get to know the potential birthmother through conversations and emails. We encourage lots of conversation as well as pursuing multiple leads, as adoption is one of life’s most important decisions—it takes time, exploration between both sides and should not be rushed.

Notify your attorney or agency about the lead.

When you’ve found your match, freeze your profile plan until the placement process is complete. You can reactive your profile at any time.
