Adoption Photolisting

Before you can possibly know what you want from the adoption community, you'll need to know what it has to offer. By using adoption photolistings to look through the photos and bios of babies and children available from private, public and international agencies, you can get a better idea of who the waiting adoptable children are.

Sure, it's slim to none that you're going to actually adopt the cute gap-toothed, dimple-cheeked child grinning at you from the computer screen. But one of the greatest advantages of a photolisting is that they can connect you with the agency that posted the photolisting.

It's easy to fall in love with those adorable photos of children waiting for adoption. These are more useful for older child adoptions, which can include informative biographies about the child's hobbies and behavioral habits. However, parents shouldn't get glassy-eyed over these bios as they barely scratch the surface of a child's complexity. Often, older children up for adoption have physical, mental or emotional disabilities not listed in the bio.

Baby adoption photolistings are a little less informational, as babies are too young to have developed any qualities that make them behaviorally and socially unique. There are some details that can help a couple understand a child's developmental habits, such as the Apgar score.

International adoption photolistings are either vague or nonexistent. China, for example, may not present a couple with the photo of the adoptable child until he or she has been assigned with the adoptive parents.

Personally, I find the idea of adoption so amazing. I love when I find out that someone is adopting because that means the mother didn't kill her child. I adopted a four month old, redheaded, perfect little boy two years ago and I couldn't be happier with my decision to adopt. #3

my husband and I have suffered for child adoption for the past eight years to no avail after having our home study approve. Is just three months ago that we succeeded in adopting a son from one orphanage. If you still have the interest in adoption you can contact them #4

i am willing to adopt any child, boy or girl, of any age, newborn to 18, and any race, or mixture of races, that wants a forever family. i am a single mother who has always wanted a large family. i always thought i would do that the good old natural way, but God has other plans for my life. i see children all the time that just want someone to love them and be there for them, no matter what. i am willing to be that person. my family is willing to be that family. i feel that the children that are on this earth deserve as much of my love as does my own biological child. once there is that bond, there is no difference in my heart between the two. would absolutely love to adopt and have a large family. #6
