You have the ability to choose the adoptive parents your child will grow up with, as well as meet them before your baby is born. You can also maintain communication with them after your adoption is complete.
While we hold adoptive parent profiles here as a convenience and service to our expectant mother clients, we do not represent the adoptive family you choose. When we represent only you, we are able to focus solely on your needs, rather than those of a prospective adoptive family. We have many contacts to locate families wanting to adopt in Arizona and throughout the U.S., so we will help you find the perfect adoptive family for your child, no matter where they are. When you work with Stuart & Blackwell, you are involved and in charge of every step in your adoption journey.
If you call us at 480-420-2900, we will ask you what you are looking for and what your preferences are and we will find out how we can find the perfect family for your child. Our processes help us evaluate your circumstances and situation to determine which adoptive family will best meet your goals.
WHAT KIND OF FAMILY YOU’RE LOOKING FOR
At Stuart & Blackwell, we believe there are right adoptive parents for every prospective birth mother. An important part of finding them is figuring out exactly what you want in an adoptive family. We’ll discuss many things with you, including but not limited to:
OPENNESS: Would you like an open adoption (where you can be in contact with the adoptive family before, during, and after the adoption) or a closed adoption (where you have no contact with the adoptive family before, during, and after the adoption)? For many pregnant women considering adoption, open adoption is ideal so they can make sure the family they choose is just right for their child. Open adoption also gives you the opportunity to choose what kind of (and how much) contact you’re comfortable with. Once we know how much contact you are looking for, we can help you find a family that wants the same exact thing.
LOCATION: Where do you want them to live? At Stuart & Blackwell, we don’t limit you to adoptive parents in Arizona. We have contacts throughout the United States, so whether you’re looking for adoptive parents in Arizona or somewhere farther away, we can find a family for you. And you don’t only get to choose their state of residence; you also can decide whether you want your child raised on a country farm, downtown in a big city, or a suburban family neighborhood.
LIFESTYLE: What kind of lifestyle do you want for your baby? When choosing adoptive parents, you can consider whether you want your child to be raised by older or younger parents, and what you want their everyday routine to look like. Do you want them to be raised in an artistic household? Do you want them to travel and take frequent road trips?
VALUES: What values are important to you? While this could apply to the religion practiced by your baby’s family, it can also apply to their political leanings, commitment to education, or other values. It may be important to you to find a family who values the same things you do.
