In most states, any person or couple who is physically, mentally and emotionally fit to adopt can be eligible to adopt a child. This is true for adoption in Ohio. Adoptive couples in Ohio have a lot of love to give a child and they desire to be parents.

How do you know that you’ve found the perfect type of family for your baby? Some prospective mothers don’t know until they see the family and they get a good feeling. Others know that they want to choose a gay couple looking to adopt in Ohio, or a biracial couple looking to adopt in Ohio.

There are countless married couples looking to adopt and Christian couples looking to adopt, and American Adoptions works with more families than most other adoption agencies.

We are here to help you find the perfect family for your baby. You can call us at 1-800-ADOPTION to learn more about our families, or contact us online for questions and to get started with your adoption in Ohio.

Types of Families That Choose to Adopt in Ohio

The best way to know what types of people are looking to adopt in Ohio is to view adoptive family profiles and our unique adoptive family videos. Some agencies may only work with a few types of people who are looking to adopt in Ohio. With these smaller agencies, your options are limited. That’s not the case with American Adoptions.

You can look through as many profiles as you want, considering all the types of people looking to adopt in Ohio, because we work with hundreds of hopeful families at once. That gives you the best chance of finding the right family for your baby.

Here are descriptions of many of the types of people looking to adopt in Ohio.

Younger and Older Couples

The minimum age to adopt in most states is 21, but each adoption agency can have their own age ranges. You can find a younger couple looking to adopt in Ohio and you can also find older couples looking to adopt in Ohio.

Same-Sex Couples

In all states, same-sex couples can adopt a child together to start or grow their family. You can find LGBTQ adoption agencies that will help you find your baby’s perfect parents. Many adoption agencies, like American Adoptions, work with LGBT adoptive families in Ohio.

Single Parents

There is no law that states adoptive parents must be married couples looking to adopt. There are single parent adoption agencies that can help you find a single parent looking to adopt a baby.

Military Families

You may not have considered placing your baby with a military family, but there are military families looking to adopt a child. Military families could travel all over the world, providing travel experience for your child to grow and learn about living in different states and even different countries. If you choose to work with a military adoption agency, you can find a military family that may be perfect for your baby.

Families with Other Children

Some prospective adoptive parents already have biological or adopted children and they want to grow their family. You can find many adoptive profiles with older children and siblings. This means that your baby can grow up with siblings in a large family if you believe this will be best for him or her.

Interracial and Transracial Families

Interracial and transracial adoptions are an option for hopeful parents, and you can find transracial adoption agencies, or select families that are open to this type of adoption. There are Black adoptive families, white adoptive families and Asian adoptive families.

Although race can be a sensitive adoption topic for some people, there are many families looking to adopt a biracial child, families looking to adopt a Black child, families looking to adopt a Hispanic child and any race in between. Many families have already adopted transracially and you can view their adoptive family video profiles to learn how they approach the topic of race and adoption with their children.

Religious and Nonreligious Families

If religion is important to you, there are often many religious based adoption agencies that can help you find families who practice all types of religion, or who don’t practice religion at all. There are Jewish adoptive families, Hindu adoptive families, Muslim families looking to adopt and even families that practice other religions are open to adoption in Ohio.

You can ask your adoption specialist about a specific religion to learn about the families they work with who practice those religions.

A Note about Wealthy Families Looking to Adopt

All of the families that you see in adoptive family profiles are financial stable and can provide the resources that a child needs. Wealth can mean different things to different people, so a rich couple looking to adopt is not a category available for selection. But, when you view adoptive family video profiles, you can get a firsthand glimpse of the life that your child could have with financially stable adoptive families.

When you choose an open adoption, you can personally talk to your chosen adoptive parents about any and all of the above topics, because this information is important for you to know when finding an adoptive family for your baby. You can give us a call at 1-800-ADOPTION to learn more about the types of families that we work with for adoption in Ohio. You can also contact us online at any time for free adoption information.

Reasons Families Choose to Adopt

As you can see, hopeful parents have different and unique backgrounds. There are also many reasons that couples choose to adopt a child. Here are a few of the most common reasons:

  • Desire to bond with a child

  • Struggled with infertility or multiple miscarriages

  • Chosen by same-sex couples and single parents to start or expand their family

  • Desire to help a child in need

  • Love of children and parenting

This is a short list, but the reasons that families choose to bring a child into their home are as unique as they are.

The bottom line is that adoptive families want to share their life and love with a child.
