Let’s take a look at common fears we encounter with birth mothers worried about finding a family. 

What Happens if I Haven’t Chosen Adoptive Parents for My Baby? 

There is no doubt that the fear you might be experiencing when asking, “What if I don’t have an adoptive family picked when I give birth?” is real. We are here to tell you that you can relax, breathe easy and know an adoptive family is out there for you and your baby and we’re going to help you find them

Last-minute adoptions are common. Sometimes a birth mother may initially decide parenting is what she wants but as the due date approaches, maybe circumstances have changed and parenting isn’t realistic. 

That isn’t “giving up” on a child. It’s making the loving decision to find them the best possible chance at living a great life. That’s heroic

Nicole, who already had a young daughter, found out she was unexpectedly pregnant. She had a decision to make and at first, parenting seemed like the best option, however, things changed. 

“I decided to make the best of the situation and I started making plans to keep the baby. As time went on though things didn’t seem to be working out the way I was planning. I started to panic, I didn’t know how I was going to raise two children and with the way things were looking with my fiancé and me it looked like I was going to be doing it on my own,” Nicole said.  

“I kept looking at my daughter and felt this would be so unfair for her. I felt she deserved more; she needed a swing set and dance lessons, tumbling, horseback riding, and piano lessons. She needed everything I was already struggling to give her.” 

Nicole and so many birth mothers before and after her placement have found themselves choosing adoption at the last minute and wondered whether they’ll be able to find a family. 

That’s where our experience, support and national size and scope come to the rescue. Because we understand how important it is for you to find the perfect adoptive family, we have used our national presence to compile unique adoption profiles of our hundreds of hopeful adoptive families to give you the best chance at finding an amazing adoption opportunity.

Take it from Scott Mars, founder of American Adoptions, and an adoptee himself.      

“My mom and dad were a couple who weren’t able to become a mom and dad without adoption. Of all people in this world, my mom and dad deserve to be parents. And without adoption, they would not have been able to share their love, share their life, and give someone the life that I had.          

“Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity.”  You can watch Scott’s video to see his entire adoption story.
