Adoption profiles are one of the most important ways to connect with prospective birthparents. The profile is your opportunity to make a great first impression. It is a powerful way to show who you are, what your family life is like, and what you can provide a child.
Can you imagine looking through dozens and dozens of printed profiles trying to decide which hopeful adoptive family you connect with? Obviously, if your profile can stand out among the others, you have a better chance of a having a quick connection with an expectant mother.
Your profile will typically include 8-20 pages of photos and your letter to prospective birthparents, so making it can be overwhelming. A lot of families choose to create their own printed profile – and doing it yourself can save you money.
If you aren’t the creative type, if you are not confident in your technical and design skills – or if you simply want to save time in creating your profile, there is help for you. There are plenty of places to get your profile professionally designed.
Having someone help you tell your story may be just what you need.
