Expecting mothers who choose to adopt traditionally are given very few choices relying on a single agency or family member to find a suitable adopting family then hoping that the choice ends up being a good one for their child.
But in the internet age many mothers are choosing to be more proactive using a range of readily available online services and agencies that can help them choose what they see as their ideal match for their child.
Couples and families looking to adopt are also moving online more as a way to increase their exposure to mothers who are looking for a potential adopting family. By using online services these families can be listed with multiple adoption agencies and multiple websites dramatically increasing their chances of finding a child.
Mothers thinking of adopting a child using internet services should be aware of the legal issues. Adoption laws vary from state to state and in every state a proper legal process must be observed with the adoption of a child.
Families looking to increase their chances of adopting a child should also pay close attention to the legal issues and seek out legal advice. Online adoption is usually coupled with significant contact offline for both legal and practical reasons so the idea of “ordering a baby on the internet” is really a fallacy.
Choosing online services that operate with integrity and have a proven track record of successful adoption is also critically important. People looking to find a child to adopt are a prime target for scammers both online and offline and these families should do their homework to ensure every step of the way they’re dealing with legitimate, ethical professionals.
Mothers who are adopting their child should also seek support in the process from qualified counsellors because adopting a child can be emotionally very difficult. Qualified counsellors can be found at crisis pregnancy centers or in many churches.
Mothers adopting children might also seek out legal advice and advice from other parents who have adopted their children to families. Some websites keep list of parents who are happy to talk to mothers considering adoption.
