“The Adoptive Mom Liked Instagram Too!”

by | Jul 7, 2017 | Birth Parent Blog

the adoptive mom I picked liked Instagam too!As you look at adoptive family profiles, you might be seeking a couple on the West Coast, one that has a stay-at-home mom, or a couple who follows your religion.

In modern adoption, women have lots of choices, including a huge variety of adoptive couples to pick from, and the ability to get really selective in who they pick. For some women looking at adoption profiles, they feel that something just “clicks” with one adoptive couple because they have a similar hobby or interest.

They’ve told us that they felt an instant connection to an adoptive couple right away, because they have the same interests or hobbies. An example is Hayley, 22, who made an adoption plan for her baby boy last year. She says:

“I looked through all the profiles Lifetime sent me, which was a ton! After looking through about half the box of profiles, I read in one that the adoptive mom, Jessica, loved to apply filters to photos and make stories on Instagram. It’s so weird to be saying this, but seeing that made me feel connected to her, like I already knew her.

Of course, I looked at the other facts and info about Jessica and her husband Chris too…it wasn’t all about Instagram. It had to be about something deeper, since adoption was such a major decision. They lived in the Midwest…I was hoping for a family who lived nearby so that I could visit every year. Chris is a family doctor and Jessica is an accountant. It’s important to me that my son grows up in a financially stable family since I didn’t.”
