Many prospective birth parents are afraid that there are not many couples looking to adopt. But, there are more than 2 million families waiting to adopt in the U.S. In other words, there are 36 adoptive families for every baby placed for adoption.

If you’re browsing families looking to adopt a baby in Ohio, then there are hundreds of couples to choose from if you work with the right agency.

American Adoptions of Ohio works with many adoptive families simultaneously, which gives you a better chance of finding the best adoptive parents possible for your baby in Ohio.

Another common concern that prospective birth parents have is that their child will be placed with adoptive parents that they don’t feel are right for the child. We hear this all the time, but we usually dispel these worries when we tell them that they are in full control of who they place their child with.

You call all the shots in your Ohio adoption process, including the adoptive parents for your baby. This is a significant choice, and American Adoptions of Ohio wants you to feel empowered when you decide what is best for you. Your adoption professional will be there to guide you through each step of your journey and provide you with any support you need.

How do I select parents to adopt my baby in Ohio?

Many prospective birth mothers feel that finding adoptive parents in Ohio for their child is one of the most exciting parts of the adoption journey. This provides plenty of reassurance, as well, because they know that they have found adoptive parents who will give their child a loving, caring home.

It can be a bit overwhelming though, especially because there are so many adoptive families to choose from.

So, our staff at American Adoptions of Ohio has devised a way to best determine what type of family you want for your baby. Below is a list of questions you can ask yourself. Keep in mind that there are no right or wrong answers or questions. But, here are some things you can consider asking yourself:

  • Do they have pets?
  • Do they have other children? Is their family large or small?
  • Where do they enjoy traveling?
  • What are their values? Are they religious? What are their hobbies?
  • Do they live in an urban, suburban or rural environment? Do they live by the ocean or mountains?

You can also ask yourself how much you would like to keep in touch with the adoptive parents after the adoption finalization. The amount of post-adoption contact is up to you, and American Adoptions of Ohio can help you find adoptive families that share your preferences.

Finding adoptive parents that are right both for you and your child is a vital step. Open adoption in Ohio allows you to have a relationship with the adoptive family after placement. There are different levels of openness, too, so you can choose a level of communication with which you’re comfortable. In other words, when you feel “right” after connecting with an adoptive family, this is a great sign.

“The adoptive parents are super supportive,” Jessica, a birth mother who worked with our agency, said. “They have reached out to me on this journey and are very adamant in keeping in touch and sharing her milestones with me. It makes me feel connected to her still. I want to thank American Adoptions for helping make this process a really comfortable choice.”

Do the adoptive parents have to live in Ohio?

When you work with a national adoption agency, such as American Adoptions of Ohio, you aren’t restricted to finding adoptive parents in the Buckeye State. They can live anywhere in the country. Smaller, local agencies have to work within their general area of Ohio, but national adoption agencies can work with adoptive families throughout the United States.

But, you may want to find adoptive parents in Ohio because there are some things that you might want your child to grow up near. This includes the wonderful Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, the incredibly fun Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and more.
