loving, single, Jewish prospective adoptive mom


I’m new to the list. I want to adopt a healthy child - three - 10 years old.

Please keep me in mind if you hear of anyone who needs a stable, loving Jewish home.

Thank you,


Hi Diane-
What do you mean when you say healthy? Are you looking to adopt internationally or through foster care?  For the age group you are interested in you would want to work with an agency or your local Children and Families Dept of Social Services.
Good luck

We’ll do and best of luck. I’m in the same demographic - single, Jewish - and just adopted domestically. You can contact me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you’d like to chat or if I can help in any way.

Have you looked here? A Jewish matching service.

Regina, thanks so much for that link.  I’m also a single, Jewish adoptive mom and I had such a positive experience I’m starting up my own adoption consulting business.  While I will work with anyone, since I am Jewish and Single, I have a special spot for working with other single moms and other jewish prospective parents, being able to share my experiences.  Does anyone have experience working with Jewish Children’s Adoption Network?  I’d love any insight. 

Diane, from what I understand, MOST (and there certainly are exceptions) Domestic adoption agencies are focused on newborns or infants.  Like I said, there are certainly exceptions.  It may still be worth signing up with agencies that don’t require much money up front because I’m guessing most people who are waiting would rather adopt an infant, giving you an edge when a situation does arise.

That said, as singlewannaadopt mentioned, you may be best off talking to DCFS, maybe even about foster to adopt…or considering international. 

I hope that helps a bit.  Feel free to reach out if you want to discuss further.
