Highly Successful Ways to Adopt a Newborn in 2021


If you are wanting to adopt a newborn child in 2021, consider the following ways to increase the likelihood of success:


1. Network, Network, Network.  Tell everyone you know that you are hoping to adopt. Even if it’s not your personality to share parts of your private life, get over it.  You would be amazed at how expectant parents find families these days.  Tell your friends, family, colleagues, church members, doctors, and do not be shy to post your desire to adopt on listservs, online forums and through social media. 

2. Create a Website.  It should not be a surprise, but in 2021, the majority of matches between expectant parents and adoptive parents will come from the internet.  You must have a professional looking website announcing to the world why you want to adopt and why an expectant parent should pick you over the other thousands of prospective adoptive parents.  You should consider working with a professional, such as an adoption agency or adoption attorney, to assist in creating the website and ensuring that it gets the most exposure possible. 

3. Advertise. This is a tricky one because of the laws in various jurisdictions, but if your state allows it, consider placing ads on google and social media platforms.  Careful placement will increase your odds of becoming a parent sooner than later.  Develop a budget that meets your needs again utilizing a professional. 

4. Social Media.  Like it or not, advertising and announcing your desire to adopt on social media is a must.  Join adoption forums and listservs.  They can be a great resource both before and after placement. 

5. Hire an Experienced Adoption Attorney. Not only do you need a highly experienced adoption attorney to provide legal advice, but hiring an adoption attorney early on in the process will ensure that everyone is on the same page and know what to expect and when to expect it.  A knowledgeable adoption attorney will have contacts with the most highly respected agencies and hospitals.  It’s a must!
