Biracial Adoptions

Hello, I am a single african american women and I am trying to adopt a biracial child. I have been trying for so long and it dont seem to be no hope.  I was wondering does anyone know where to find birth moms and how can i contact them on this sight?


First, make sure you are using a great agency .  smile  Second, the wait as a single-woman can be a bit longer simply b/c I think many bio moms will feel that if they can’t do it alone, why had their baby to another person who wants to raise a baby alone?  I’m not saying you won’t be a great mom…but I think from the bio mom’s perspective (generally speaking), it might be harder for you to be chosen.  You might look at your profile and ask yourself if you’ve shown that you can be a great mom to a child, even though you are a single person.  What support systems do you have in place?  Family?  Friends?  A male mentor for a child if you get a son?  What kind of home do you live in?  What types of educational, travel, etc. opportunities can you provide a child?  Focus on all these positive things.  Much of adoption is right-place, right time.  YOu may grow frustrated of waiting, and that is NORMAL for all adoptive parents.  smile  Also, you might consider why you are only open to a bi-racial child.  Is there a reason you aren’t open to other races?  Just some thoughts!  Best wishes!

I would also recommend that you check into your local department of family and children services. (foster care program)  You can choose only to adopt and a social/case worker will help you locate a child.

There can be many factors:
How long you have been with your guy? (some places prefer 5 years even if you are married)
How do you live: fully single, lots of sleepovers or practically living together? (Most mothers want to ensure consistent schedule)
Has he submitted to the same background checks, interviews, etcetera as you did? (DCF requires it of everyone over 18 in your home)

In the end, it isn’t how terrific you are, but how bio mom perceives your situation.
