One of the essential components in the adoption process is creating an adoption profile. An adoption profile allows an expectant mother to learn more about the adoptive family when considering a family for their child. It’s important to ensure your profile stands out and accurately represents your family.

Here are five things to include in your adoption profile.


Including photos of you and your partner, family, pets, and home will give an expectant mother a visual of your life and help them envision their child in your family. 

Your Story

Use your adoption profile to tell your family’s story. Share why you decided to adopt, how you met as a couple, and what you enjoy doing together. 

Hobbies and Interests

Including information about your hobbies and interests can help an expectant mother see what type of activities their child may be exposed to. This can include anything from hiking to cooking to traveling.

The Child’s Future

Talk about things you want to do with your child, values you plan on instilling, and ways you will include your future child into your existing traditions and everyday life.

Support System

Highlight your support system, including family and friends who will play a role in your child’s life. This will give an expectant mother peace of mind knowing their child will have a strong support system. 

In order to protect your privacy and avoid adoption scams, leave out any identifying information. 

Here are five things to leave out of your adoption profile. 

  1. City or town
  2. House number or street name 
  3. Name of employer
  4. Last name
  5. Personal social media handle 

How to Get Your Adoption Profile Displayed on Stuart & Blackwell’s Website and Social Media

We provide matching services for expectant mothers and prospective adoptive parents, much like an agency does, but for a fraction of the cost. 

When beginning the adoption process, the first step is to call our firm to schedule an initial consultation. This one-hour meet and greet is perfect for those who want to learn more about our matching services or how private adoption works.

After you decide to move forward with adoption, you need to get certified to adopt by the Court in the county where you reside. By statute, our office cannot present your adoptive parent profile book to expectant mothers until you are certified to adopt.

Once certified, we will hold your profile for future matching opportunities and display your profile on our website and social media. 

Call us today at (480) 420-2900 to schedule an initial consultation and learn how we can get you started on your adoption process and assist with your adoption journey.
