It’s a weird time for domestic infant adoption. If you’re one of tens of thousands of individuals or families who has tried to start the adoption process in 2021, then you’ve probably been turned away by at least one or two adoption agencies already.
Well, first of all, birth rates are down, and they’re continuing to fall. This has been a trend over the past decade, but it’s been drastically exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, there’s a large gap between the amount of waiting adoptive parents on an adoption organizations’ roster and the amount of expectant mothers coming to the organization to place their baby for adoption. Therefore, these adoption organizations are saying, “Look, we can’t take on any new parents until we take care of the parents who are already on our roster and have been there since before the pandemic.”
In addition to this, some of our adoption agencies that we partner with have told us that the hopeful adoptive parents on their rosters aren’t choosing to match with the expectant birth mothers presented to them. The reasons vary, but oftentimes it’s because the expected baby doesn’t fit their adoption preferences (gender, race, drug exposure, medical/developmental concerns, etc.). This scenario is one of the main reasons why Parentfinder has always believed that hopeful adoptive parents should not be able to turn down a match, unless they haven’t met the needed requirements to parent that child (i.e. special needs adoption).
Well, there’s not much you can do. The circumstances aren’t going to change any time soon. Even if birth rates do rebound over the next year, they’ll continue to fall compared to where they were a decade or two ago. But that doesn’t mean you can’t adopt a baby. It just means you have change the way you go about doing it.
The entire adoption industry is undergoing an incredible transformation. The adoption process today often looks nothing like the adoption process of the past. There’s no longer a need for parents considering adoption to begin their journey by attending some local agency’s seminar. They can begin their journey with the click of a mouse, right on Parentfinder.
Parentfinder’s Preferred Membership was created in 2021 and tailored to the world we live in today. As a preferred member, you would work hand-in-hand with one of our dedicated adoption consultants. These individuals are either adoption professionals themselves or someone who has gone through the adoption process and understands it inside and out. They would guide you through the early steps of the process and help you arrange and prepare for an adoption home study. They would answer any and all of your adoption questions, provide you with proven adoption home study tips, and begin to share with you the details about the adoption agencies that we work with throughout the United States.
Your Parentfinder adoption consultant would also connect you with the Parentfinder Profile team to create and build a genuine and dynamic adoption profile book, video, and website. Once you’re home study approved and your adoption profile is complete, your consultant would help you manage your digital marketing campaign right from your Parentfinder dashboard. This would increase your exposure to expectant parents while we work on connecting you with one of the dozens of adoption agencies who partner with us in the preferred program
