Alabama State Bar rules require the following in every attorney advertisement.

No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers.”





An option available to you is to try to locate a baby on your own by “networking” with everyone you know in the community who may come in contact with a large segment of the population. This option is a very affordable way to try and adopt and you can start immediately which are big pros. You will still need to provide a homestudy produced by a licensed homestudy professional and you will still need to provide parent profiles for birthmothers to view. However, going about finding a birthmother on your own or through an adoption attorney still has risk involved but allows you to be completely involved in the adoption process. Once you are connected with a birthmother you would hire an adoption attorney to proceed with an adoption contract and to finalize the adoption in court.


Spread the Word


Try to spread the word that you hope to adopt a baby and ask that people keep you in mind, should they hear about a young girl who is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and who might consider adoption. Tell individuals who come in contact with a large segment of the population, such as doctors, lawyers, teachers, clergy, nurses, and hairdressers. Birthmothers do contact adoption attorneys, like myself, for assistance in locating a family for their child. Find out what various adoption attorneys require that you provide for the use of their services.





With today’s focus on technology, many people also search for babies on the Internet, often placing “profiles” with online services. I  strongly encourage couples desiring to adopt a domestic infant to put a copy of their profile on Adoption Rocks website. Adoption rocks is a local non-profit, whose purpose is to promote adoption in the Mobile, AL community. As the current president of Adoption Rocks, our goal is to place adoption rocks posters in local OBGYN & pediatrician’s exam rooms in an effort to provide educational information to women while they are waiting to see their physician. Having your profile on this web site will give you lots of exposure and has proven to be successful for adoptive couples who were selected by birthmothers looking at the web site for adoption help. Web Sites for Adoption Parent Profiles that I am aware of:
