different ways of finding a birthmother

Question: What is the difference between a “designated” and “matched” adoption?Answer: A designated adoption is a situation where an adoptive family and birth parent find each other through mutual friends, family, pastor, advertising, etc. They often have a common contact who has introduced them without the assistance of the agency. This is also often called a private adoption.

A matched adoption is a situation where a birth parent selects the adoptive family from looking at agency profiles. She can look at the profiles on the web site, or she can request profiles that specifically meet her requests.

Adoption Associates, Inc. works with families pursing both of these types of adoptions.
