How to Adopt a Baby

One of the first steps in newborn adoption is to create an adoptive parent profile. Your
adoption case manager will help you with this process. You will be pleased to know that in the
infant adoption process, you may specify the race/ethnicity and health of the baby you hope to
adopt. When your adoptive parent profile matches the specific requests of the birth mother
about the family she will place her baby with, your profile is presented to the birth mother to
see if there is a match between the birth mother and the adoptive family. Some of what do I
need to do to adopt a baby process involves waiting for the right match. This period is not
predictable as it is based on the preferences of the birth parents.
Feel free to reach out directly to Becky Merryman. She would be happy to answer any
questions that you have. You can contact her by phone or email at
