A Parent Profiles Family

Jeff and Kim from Michigan

We met the birth mother of our daughter using Parent Profiles early in 2012.  We had eight months to build a relationship based on friendship and trust.  We fell in love with her and her children, and in November our daughter was born.

We wanted to adopt another baby, so we kept our profile updated.  Adoption.com Parent Profiles allowed us to share our adoption story with birth mothers we otherwise would have never known about.

Nine months later, we took a family holiday in Florida and another birth mother reached out to us. We flew across the country that evening and walked into the hospital:  our second daughter had just been born!  Our profile went live March 8th, 2011, and we deactivated the profile after the birth of our second adopted daughter in September 2012.  Parent Profiles was the best way to share our story.
