Mike and Paul not only adopted a child through our agency during the COVID-19 pandemic but received the phone call about their adoption opportunity just two weeks before the birth of their son Quinn. 

“Our family was so excited and our community was so excited for us that they were rallying around us,” Paul said. “We realized Quinn needed us, plain and simple,” Mike added. “If we weren’t fully prepared for something, we would get prepared… We would do whatever we needed to do to give any child the best life that we could provide them.” 

Young Couples Looking to Adopt in Missouri

The age of an adoptive family can be of importance to you. Younger couples looking to adopt in Missouri may be struggling with infertility and are hoping to start a family through adoption.  

As the birth mother, you might see a younger adoptive couple as a parental unit that can better relate to a child. You might also wonder whether a younger couple adopting is capable of providing the amount of support a baby requires. 

In this case, you might consider an older couple looking to adopt. An older couple may be more balanced in their careers as well as already having experienced raising children of their own. 

Wealthy Couples Looking to Adopt in Missouri

If financial status is something you’re weighing in an adoptive family, it’s important to know that during the adoption home study process, a licensed social worker conducts background checks and assesses financial stability for raising a child. 

So, finding rich couples looking to adopt doesn’t directly distinguish their ability to provide for your baby more than a less wealthy couple, but rather, matching your preference for your child being adopted by wealthy adoptive parents in Missouri. Whatever your preference is, your adoption specialist will help find you the perfect family. 

You can begin your search for young, older or wealthy adoptive parents by calling 1-800-ADOPTIONvisiting us online and viewing video profiles of waiting families

Ty and Ann were completely open to adopting a child of a different race and, as it turns out, they ended up adopting two children of two separate ethnic backgrounds. 

“When we started out in the process, we were open to any race or ethnicity, so we were just very excited to be parents and have a family,” Ann said. “We’ve learned a lot in our family, and we’ve definitely grown for the better.”
