Pregnant woman watches adoption videoAre you looking for adoptive parents that will be a perfect fit for your baby? Then you’ll want to learn everything you can about potential adoptive parents. And one of the quickest ways to do that is by watching their adoption videos. 

Each adoption video on our site of families and couples is just two minutes long, so you can easily watch a bunch of them in one sitting!

The adoptive family truly wants to get to know you, but for that to happen, you need to get to know them first. The videos you'll see on Lifetime's website are a great way to help you get to know an adoptive couple. They're the perfect tool to help you find the right adoptive family for your baby. And here's why...

Watching adoption videos is the best way for you to learn a lot about adoptive parents within only a few minutes. Every video is created just for you, a woman thinking about adoption. In each adoptive family's video, you'll learn about their:

  • Occupations and childcare plans once they adopt
  • House, neighborhood, and community
  • Personalities and beliefs
  • Traditions, vacations, and hobbies they'd like to share with a child
  • Enthusiasm to become parents 

Here are 4 advantages to watching videos of couples hoping to adopt:

    While their website and printed profile lists their favorite hobbies and religious beliefs, hearing the couple talk about their faith and what interests them is an entirely different experience.
  2.  You get to see the family in their element

    By seeing the adoptive couple inside their home, you can get a picture of where your child could grow up. You can see all of the places where your child's first memories could be formed - in spots like their living room, kitchen, and backyard. You can see their children, pets, and even the art they've chosen to hang on the walls. And, you can see the nursery they are preparing for your baby!
  3. You can see an adoptive couple's friends and family.

    Many couples ask their family members and closest friends to share a bit about what a child’s life would be like in their home. Hearing from the people closet to the couple is a great way to gain insight into their life. You can even get an idea of the cousins your child might grow up with since many adoptive couples show their nieces and nephews in their videos!
  4. You’ll get a first impression of an adoptive couple before talking with them.

    It's hard to explain what it is that draws a birth mother to a particular adoptive family. For many women, it’s their gut instinct that leads them to select their baby's adoptive parents. That's why videos about adoptive families are so important. If your intuition tells you these are the right parents for your baby, don’t ignore it! It may sound cliché, but it’s true: When you know, you just know.

When you watch adoption videos, you'll be drawn to families that describe the life you wish for your baby.

Here's a playlist of videos made by Lifetime's hopeful adoptive families.
