What can You Expect to See in an Adoptive Parent Profile Book as a Birth Mother?
Establishing an adoption plan in Texas includes decisions in multiple areas, such as financial assistance and details for your hospital stay.

Based on your wants and needs, our team can present you with potential adoptive families who fit the image you want for your baby’s future, and the details you need to make the best decision for your baby.

What’s included in an Adoptive Parent Profile?
- Family Size
When you think about your child’s adoptive family, do you see them as new parents or a couple or individuals who already have children? If it’s important to you that your baby have siblings in their new family, be sure to mention this to your adoption caseworker so they can show you profiles that list how many children are in the adoptive family’s household.
- Location of Residence
One aspect you can expect to see in an adoptive parent profile book is the region where your baby will be raised. The reach of Adoption Choices of Texas extends into multiple states, which means you have a say in where your baby will go. Some of the states we serve include, but are not limited to: Illinois, Tennessee, New Mexico and, of course, Texas.
Depending on the adoptive family, some profiles may list information about the area where they are located and what opportunities the region can provide for your baby.
Our agency accepts potential families of all religions and faiths. If this is something important to you, or a factor you’re open to including in your baby’s life, you can scan the profiles to see which religious affiliation sounds the most interesting to you. Potential adoptive parents often list the details of their faith and how it would play a part in your baby’s life. This can include values and traditions that their family practices — small details that may be of more importance to you when selecting an adoptive family.
If you don’t have a preference, or would prefer that your child not be raised in a religious adoptive family that is okay too. Each and every birth mother will have their own viewpoints on this.
- Length of Wait
One positive aspect of adoption is the opportunity to fulfill an adoptive family’s dream of raising a child. Your baby could be the gift a family has been waiting to receive for years. It’s certainly something an adoptive family would cherish. If that is a wish you want to fulfill, our parent profiles can be sorted by however long applicants have been left waiting or filtered by lengths of time applications have been pending.
- Assorted Family Details
You can expect most adoptive parent profile books to include further personal details, including their parenting styles, what they are like as people — together and individually — and what their views on education are. You may also see a personal letter addressed, “Dear Birth Mother.”. These letters are an opportunity to gain a glimpse into the daily life your baby might experience and the activities the family is involved in. It may also share gratitude and an earnest wish that you’ll contact them for more information.
When first evaluating potential adoptive families, we can supply you with the applications who fulfill your needs and requirements, but personal letters from adoptive families can provide you with a more intimate understanding of who the potential parents are and help you select who you are interested in meeting in person.
