Find an Adoptive Family by Religion

How You Can Find a Family with Similar Religious Beliefs 

Working with the right adoption agency means you get to create an adoption plan for finding Christian adoptive families, catholic adoptive families, as well as Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and even non-religious adoptive families. 

When pregnant and looking for adoptive parents for your baby, you probably have a lot of questions about potential adoptive families. After all, this is a huge decision, so you want to choose the family you feel is perfect for your child. One of the most common questions is, “What is the religion of the adoptive parents?” 

We understand that your personal beliefs are deeply important to you. Many women want their child to be raised within a certain religion, often one that reflects their spiritual practices. You can choose a family that shares your religious beliefs, and we’re here to help.

Here’s How to Find Adoptive Families by Religion in 4 Steps: 

When searching for an adoptive family by religion, it’s important to work with an adoption agency capable of connecting you with families that fit your specific needs. Your religious beliefs are important and not all adoption agencies can provide you with available adoptive families that match your views. 

When it comes to choosing an adoption agency, these are three important services you need to find the right family for your baby: 

  • Stability: Larger, national agencies tend to operate with more stability, which’s good for you. Years like 2020 taught us that anything can happen. Unfortunately, many small adoption agencies (and even some larger ones) were not prepared for that. They shut down or become unreliable. When you’re considering an agency, ask about their year-over-year placement numbers, how long they have been operating, and how many clients they work with at once.   
  • Experience: A social worker who has helped complete more adoptions will be more prepared to help you have a successful adoption process. But, there’s another layer of experience. How does the adoption agency you’re considering include the experiences of adoptive families, birth parents and adoptees on its staff? Representation matters, and agencies with staffs made up of people who have personally experienced adoption can offer the best support.  
  • Availability: You’re going to have some late-night and early-morning needs. Will your agency answer the phone? Some agencies cut off at office hours, but the best agencies will be there for you 24/7. That’s what you need during the adoption process. 

Here are the 4 steps to finding the best adoptive family for you and your baby: 

Step 1: Contact an adoption professional – Now that you know what to look for in an adoption agency, you can work with experienced adoption professionals best suited for finding an adoptive family matching your religious beliefs

Step 2: Let your adoption professional know what you’re looking for in an adoptive family, including the religious values that are important to you. 

Step 3: Review the profiles that your adoption professional provides you. These profiles will have been selected based on the preferences you requested in a potential adoptive family, including religious beliefs. 

Step 4: Get to know the adoptive family and move on to the next steps in the adoption process

You can start by browsing through the profiles of adoptive families on our website, where you can search by religion. If you don’t see an adoptive family that matches what you’re looking for, don’t be discouraged — many adoptive parents are too early in the process for their profile to be shown, but they’re out there!

Here are some of the spiritual alignments that prospective birth parents often look for in a potential family for their child: 

Christian Adoptive Families 

There are always plenty of Christian adoptive families looking to adopt. When speaking with your adoption specialist, let them know you’re interested in viewing any families waiting to adopt with a Christian adoption profile. 

You can also search for Christian adoption profiles on our website here; simply select your preferred denominations from the “religion” drop-down menu at the top of the page, or check the box for “Christian” to automatically search for Christian adoptive families from all denominations. 

Catholic Adoptive Families 

“I’m looking for a Catholic couple to adopt my baby.” 

Catholic adoption agencies used to be more prevalent, but now, many Catholic families work with non-denominational national agencies instead. No matter what, it’s still simple to find a waiting Catholic family for your baby if you’d like him or her to be raised within the Catholic Church. 

Jewish Adoptive Families 

There are always Jewish adoptive families eagerly hoping to welcome a child throughout the U.S. If you’re Jewish and prefer that your child be raised within Judaism, you want to work with an adoption agency capable of using their size and scope to find the perfect Jewish adoptive family waiting for the opportunity to adopt your baby. 

Jewish adoptive parents also often work with agencies that are not religiously affiliated, so you don’t need to work specifically with a Jewish agency if you prefer to cast a wider net. You can learn more about finding Jewish adoptive parents here.  

Muslim Adoptive Families 

“Where can I find a Muslim couple who wants to adopt my baby?” 

Many Muslim families looking to adopt are eager to welcome a child into their family. To connect with them, simply reach out to an adoption agency. They’ll show you profiles of Muslim couples, or help you to search specifically for a Muslim family, so your baby can be raised in the Muslim faith. 

Hindu Adoptive Families 

If it’s important to you that your child be raised Hindu, there’s a family out there who is waiting for your child. Adoption agencies are the best way to find Hindu adoptive families who will teach your child the beliefs and practices that are important to you. Somewhere, there is a family who is hoping to adopt a child from a Hindu woman! Search for families by religion to find that family. 

Buddhist Adoptive Families 

Do you prefer your child to be raised by a Buddhist adoptive family? Online search functions allow you to find Buddhist families who are hoping to adopt a child. You’ll be able to choose the family you feel is right for your baby, and who will raise your child with the teachings of Buddha

Jehovah’s Witness Adoptive Families 

Jehovah’s Witness women who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant and considering adoption have reached out to adoption agencies and said, “I’m looking for a Jehovah’s Witness family to adopt my baby.” 

Fortunately, there are many Jehovah’s Witness adoptive families who have been waiting to be blessed with a child through adoption. Explore the adoptive family online search functions to find an amazing Jehovah’s Witness family ready to join you on your adoption journey. 

Non-Religious Adoptive Families 

Prefer to search for a non-religious adoptive family? If you’re atheist, agnostic, or simply don’t feel comfortable with a family raising your child in any set religion, you’re not alone. 

Many pregnant women want a “religious-free” adoption. Families around the U.S. who are not religious are hoping for a child, so there is no shortage of non-religious adoptive parents. It’s generally best to work with an agency that is not religiously affiliated. These agencies work with hopeful adoptive parents of all religious backgrounds, including non-religious families, and they’ll help you to find the family you’ve been dreaming of for your child.
