  • "AdoptConnect offers a user-friendly, confidential platform where photos, videos and updates are digitally stored, AdoptConnect eliminates the typical challenges of post-adoption contact and paves the way for positive communication for years to come."

Self Match Tips:

A Private facebook page tthat you pay to advertise on Facebook.

A dedicated website of our adoption page.

Join Adoption scam groups on facebook

Reach out to all adoption attorneys.

Make business like cards with your website/Facebook account that you can hand out. 

Consider going on adoption.com

Things to avoid or be aware of:

     Adoptomist.com - many families have reported only scams on this site. 

    Also if someone sends you a picture you can do a reverse image on google, and if they have no social media its a huge red flag.

Get proof of pregnancy EARLY and it is a must. Have a separate phone line for them to call so you are not giving out your phone number and a separate email account to write from so you are not sharing personal email addresses.

   We have also made business like cards with our website/Facebook account that we hand out. Social media has been huge, we have gotten contacted a few times but birth moms have been drug addicted.
