A birth mother has the right to decide what family she wants to place her child with. She can determine what type of parents she feels would best care for her child, and she can review adopting parents' information through profiles, or dear birth mother letter. The birth mother can review profiles that are given to her through an adoption agency, or by looking at profiles posted on the Internet. The birth mother can find parents of a particular race, religion, age, location or whether or not they have any other children. Once she has chosen a family she likes, she can work with her adoption agency to meet with the family either in person or on the phone. These are the kinds of birth parent services an adoption agency can provide. Choosing an adoptive family should be based on the birth mother's wishes and comfort levels.
