Hopeful Adoptive Parents - Adoption by Design Profile Book Design

You only get one chance to tell your story.

Make it count.

If you haven't heard by now, your adoption profile is the most important investment you will make in your adoption journey. Why? Because it is the only criteria that an expectant mother will use to choose adoptive parents for her child.  It's that simple.

Yet most adoptive families invest less than $100 on their profile book, even though their profile will be competing against hundreds of others out there. 

Adoption by Design can set you apart from the rest by designing a custom, tailor-made profile that is beautiful, compelling, and uniquely you.

A Custom Profile that is Uniquely You

We design fully custom profile books for your adoption process. The content of your adoption profile book will be unique and tailored to reflect you and your life. No two families are the same, and so no two profiles should be the same. And our process is designed with this in mind. We intentionally start out - not by telling you what should be in your profile book - but by hearing from you about your life and story. That way, we can make sure YOU shine through in your profile book. That is what ​birth parents will connect with. 

What are Birth Mothers Looking for in a Profile Book?

Expectant mothers do not make their decision based on who has the nicest house or the most eloquent "dear birth mother" letter. They are reviewing potential adoptive parent profiles looking to make a CONNECTION with you. Something in your profile is going to stand out and just click. It could be something as simple as your grandma's chocolate chip cookies, or your family's New Year's Eve monopoly tournament. Or it could be something more significant. Maybe you already have a special connection to adoption in your life. Or perhaps you have traveled the world, and that is something a birth mother dreams of giving her child through adoption.   


We will paint a beautiful and real picture of YOU and your life, so that a birth mother can visualize her child in your life, home, family, and future. Ultimately, that is the goal. For an expectant mother to connect with you, and know that you are the right adoptive parent(s) for her baby.

Why Choose Us?


Because you need a profile book that is ENGAGING. Many of the profile designs and templates out there are busy, cluttered, and frankly overwhelming. When it comes to your adoption profile, that is the last thing you want. Our profile books are designed with expectant mothers in mind. So they are intentionally uncluttered, vibrant, and engaging.

Baby's Room
Invest in your adoption story.

The average hopeful adoptive family will spend between $35,000 and $55,000 on an adoption, paying agencies, attorneys, consultants, and case workers. Unfortunately, none of this guarantees a placement.

In domestic infant adoption, the expectant mother herself chooses who will raise her child. And she makes this decision by reviewing and selecting from profile books submitted by hopeful adoptive parents. This means your profile book determines when and if you will ultimately be chosen to adopt a baby. 

You've come this far - why would you cut corners on the most important investment of your adoption process?

For about 2% of your total adoption expenses, you can invest in a custom adoption profile that will set your family apart, and put you on the path to completing your adoption story.
