In various adoption circles, people use the term newborn domestic adoption. What does that term mean to the family hoping to adopt a newborn? Adoption professionals use the term to refer to adopting a baby as a newborn and that the adoptive parents and baby reside within the United States (domestic).

This adoption type is quite specific compared to adopting a child from foster care. Newborn domestic adoption is private adoption – a legal agreement between the birth parent(s) and the adoptive parent(s). Typically, the birth mother determines that she cannot parent her child and chooses to place the baby with an adoptive family through the legal process.

Choices in Newborn Domestic Adoption

Both the birth mother and adoptive parent(s) have choices to make in the newborn domestic adoption process. The birth mother specifies her requirements for who she wishes to adopt her baby. Her requirements can include race, religion, and financial status. She also decides whether or not she wants to remain in contact with the family and child. This is called an open or closed adoption choice. Once the birth mother defines her criteria, she is matched with prospective adoptive families who have specified the criteria of the baby they wish to adopt. Adoptive parent criteria can include race, health status, open or closed adoption, etc. You can download our complimentary Newborn Domestic Adoption Info Kit HERE and reach out directly to Becky Merryman at 623-224-1815 or by e-mail at becky@buildingarizonafamilies.com.
