No joy can quite match the wonder of holding your new infant for the first time. At An Open Door, we’ve been privileged to make that moment possible for over 1,400 couples who have adopted infants.
An Open Door helps birth mothers choose the best families for their children. We accept a limited number of couples into our program, which means that the wait times are shorter. Usually couples are matched to a baby in less than a year, while other agencies may take two to five years.
Like any kind of parenting, adopting an infant takes a special kind of dedication. In the US, it is common for 1/3 of couples to experience at least one revocation where a birth mother changes her mind within the 10-day period after placement. However, through perseverance, couples are ultimately matched with the child they are meant to have. I have seen first-hand the joy that moment brings when parents finally meet the children they have dreamed of. What a wonderful journey!
