Adoptive parent profiles are crucial to the success of any adoption. It’s the first glimpse of your family that birth parents will get to see. So, it’s important that you put your best foot forward.
One of the keys to making a great adoption profile is authenticity. You will be building forever relationships with the birth family, so be yourselves! Include photos of you doing everyday activities like watering the flowers, reading a book, or feeding the chickens. These types of activities may seem trivial to you, but it helps the birth family genuinely understand who you are as a person or family. Often times, the most mundane things will be the ones that connect an expecting mother’s heart with yours.
When creating an adoption profile, you should also be mindful of what’s going on in the background of photos. Birth families quickly pick up on subtle details like body language, items on shelves, or signs in the background. Although these things might seem insignificant to us, they tell the reader so much about your family.
