After speaking to many adoptive couples, I've noticed that many view the creation of their parent profile as a task, another item they need to mark off their long list of To Do's in the adoption process. I can see why it would be considered as such.
One of the most common questions birth moms are asked by potential adoptive parents is...
“What stood out to you in your Adoptive Family Profile, that made you pick them?”
And the most common response (along with my own) is…
It just felt right.
I had a sense of peace.
I went with my gut feeling.
I just knew.
Everytime I answer an adoptive couple with this kind of response I can sense their frustration, because “It just felt right” doesn’t help guide them in anyway to create Parent Profiles that stand out. Though there is much honesty in this response, I want to point out a few things that may help you as hopeful adoptive couples.
