Adoption Profile Service: How It Works

Here’s how to register for our Adoption Profile Service. To join, you’ll need a valid home study for domestic adoption and be working with an adoption agency or attorney.

1. Register online.
To sign up, simply click on the button at the bottom of this page. After you’ve signed up, you’ll automatically receive an e-mail confirming your registration and your Personal Profile questionnaire.

2. Send us your material.
For your convenience, you can send everything to us electronically. Here’s what we’ll need: .

Your Parent Profile Letter. A self-portrait of about 1,000-1,500 words.
15 photos. This includes a) three main photos for your Letter Page, Personal Profile Page and Contact Page; and b) 12 photos with short captions for your photo album.
Autobiographical description 1. A one-sentence description about you and/or your reasons for adopting for our home page
Autobiographical description 2. A two- or three-sentence description of you and/or your reasons for adopting for our “Find A Family” page.
A Completed Parent Profile Form. We’ll send you the link as soon as we receive your registration.

3. Start networking your profile.
Your profile will be up and ready within five business days after we’ve received all of your material. As soon as it’s posted, we’ll give you the heads up and start spreading the news about it to the rest of the adoption community through our social media tools.
