Social Media
1. Social Media

Share the link to your profile on social media and ask your friends and family to share it. Make sure you change the privacy settings for the post on “public” so everyone can see it. You never know who may end up seeing your profile by spreading the word on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter. It could very well be expectant parents considering adoption!

Old Fashioned Cards
2. Old Fashioned Cards

Give out cards to people you know with your profile information on it. You can even ask businesses to post one of your cards on their bulletin board. It might seem a little old school, but anything to get your profile out to the public helps!

3. Videos

Add a video to your profile! This draws attention to your profile and gives expectant parents a peek into your life. Remember to just be yourself and have fun, even if it is a little awkward being in front of a camera.

4. Photos

Do a fun photo shoot focused on growing your family through adoption. Pinterest is a great place to look for inspiration and unique ideas will bring more attention to your profile. It also shows expectant parents how excited you are to be adopting.

Stay Updated
5. Stay Updated

Make frequent updates on your profile. Share a fun activity you did over the past week. Expectant parents want to get to know you and what your daily life is like so they can see if you could be the right fit for their child.

6. Letter

Write a letter to expectant parents. Tell them why you are choosing adoption and convey your support to them as they make a very difficult decision. Express your excitement to be adopting and the love you have for the child that you have yet to meet.
