5 Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing Adoptive Parents

birthmotherSelecting adoptive parents is a tough road. But before sorting through adoptive parent profiles, sit down and think about what matters most to you. What are your must haves? What are deal breakers? Is there anything you don’t want? Keep in mind you have the right to pick any set of adoptive parents based on any set of criteria, and Angel Adoption Inc is ready to guide you through the adoption process and to make it easier, we have created some questions to ask yourself when choosing adoptive parents.

What do you want for your child?

What do you see when you envision your child’s future? What are their parents like? Where do they live? Do they have siblings? Are they a sports fanatic, one with nature or artistic?
If you are pregnant and considering adoption, you might be thinking about the type of family that will raise your child. Choosing an adoptive family is a tough decision, but can also be rewarding as you search for families who best represent your own hopes and dreams. Angel Adoption, Inc works with a number of loving families ready to welcome a child into their home. When choosing a family to adopt your baby, consider these three steps to ensure a happy decision for all!

What are your hobbies and interests?

For many birthparents, finding an adoptive family who shares some of their own hobbies and interests is important. Angel Adoption, Inc helps adoptive parents create unique adoptive parent profiles that represent them in as much detail as possible – including their favorite hobbies, pass time and interests. From their favorite sports, holidays, books, movies, food and more, birthparents can gain a sense of what their child’s life may be like based off this basic – but important information.

What are your values?

These factors are of major concern for many birthparents. Is a specific religion important to you? If you would like religion/faith to play a role in your child’s life, there are many adoptive parents who can accommodate this need. Additionally, if strong family values are important to you, ask yourself these questions: do the adoptive parents have a large family? Do they live near their family members such as their parents who could be doting grandparents? Do they have siblings who will provide aunts, uncles and possibly cousins to your child? Do they currently have any children? Are they planning to have/adopt more children?
Basic Lifestyle Questions:
Where do the adoptive parents live and is the neighborhood family oriented?
Do they live in an area with a good education system?
Do they live in a big city, suburb or rural area?
Do they have other children or express the desire for a large family?
Finding an adoptive family who is 100% perfect is nearly impossible. With that said, it’s important to keep an open mind when searching through adoptive parent profiles. We know this isn’t easy – but bare with us. What we mean by this is, don’t write someone off based off one element you may not like. Take the time to review as many adoptive parents profiles as you can, doing your best to consider the big picture, not just specific aspects or minor details.
