Step 1: Think About What Type of Adoptive Family You Want
If you have decided that adoption is the right path for you, then the first thing you should do is consider what you’re looking for in an adoptive family. Because you have full control of your adoption process from start to finish, you get to choose the family that you envision your child growing up with.
When you are browsing families looking to adopt in Kansas, you can ask yourself questions such as:
- Do I imagine my child living in an urban, suburban or rural environment?
- Do I want my child to grow up with siblings or family pets?
- Do I picture my child practicing certain religious values?
Whatever preferences you have for your adoption, you are making a beautiful impact on a family by helping them realize their dreams of parenthood. Also, many prospective birth mothers have a “gut feeling” when they’ve found the right family. Sara, a birth mother who worked with American Adoptions, felt this way with her child’s adoptive parents.
“The hugs and kisses lasted forever between us, and we just meshed,” she said. “It felt like I had known them my entire life. I was more confident in my choice – not just in adoption but in picking the perfect couple to raise the baby.”
With American Adoptions of Kansas, your dreams of finding a family that’s perfect for your child can come true.
Step 2: Choose an Adoption Agency to Work With
The next step to finding couples looking to adopt a baby in Kansas is choosing an adoption agency. Working with an agency is the best way to ensure that you receive all of the support you need during the process.
The agency you work with will determine the type of families you get to choose from — and how many profiles you can look at. American Adoptions is a national agency, which means we can give you hundreds of options, and a better chance of finding a family that is perfect for your baby. Other, smaller agencies can also be great, but they usually only work with a handful of families at once, giving you fewer options.
When you work with an adoption agency, such as American Adoptions of Kansas, you’ll be connected with an adoption professional who will get to know you and help you form your adoption plan. They will help you create a plan that’s specifically tailored to your needs, and they’ll also help you find the perfect adoptive family.

- You can look over hundreds of family profiles.

Step 3: Begin Searching for Couples Waiting to Adopt in Kansas
Once you have chosen an adoption agency to work with, your adoption professional will show you profiles of hopeful adoptive families. These profiles should match your preferences based on what you told your adoption professional.
When you view waiting families, their profiles will contain information that gives you a better idea of who they are, what they’re like and what kind of environment they would provide for your child.
American Adoptions of Kansas also offers adoptive family video profiles, which are videos of the adoptive parents explaining more about their family and why they want to adopt a child. These video profiles will help you better understand if the adoptive family is a good fit for your baby.
Like we said, you can look through hundreds of profiles — as many as you need until you find the right family. You shouldn’t have to compromise on a choice this big, and our national scope ensures that you can choose a family you truly believe in.
