In almost all adoptions these days, the Adoptive Parents & Birth Parents agree that they will remain in contact. For most Adoptive Parents, that means sending updates and photos of the child once or twice each year and perhaps periodic visits.
Sounds fairly easy, right?
As it turns out, it's not as easy as it sounds. Lost devices, outdated contact information, the need for boundaries and busy lives often create barriers to continued contact or lead to broken promises.
By offering 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.
HOW IT WORKS
Adoptive Parents set up a private account which allows them to share unlimited photos, videos and updates with the birth parent(s).
AdoptConnect sends an automatic email to the birth parent inviting her/him to create a separate (and free!) account which allows unlimited access to view photos, updates and videos.
Adoptive parents share photos, videos and updates by posting to their AdoptConnect Timeline. Each time something new is posted, the Birth Parent receives an email notification. Our calendar feature sends an automatic reminder to Adoptive Parents when their updates are coming due. Reminders may also be set for other important dates such as birthdays or special occasions.
We think AdoptConnect is pretty awesome, but don't just take our word for it!
HERE IS WHAT THE ADOPTION COMMUNITY IS SAYING ABOUT ADOPTCONNECT
"AdoptConnect is an excellent solution for adoption agencies who want confirmation that adoptive parents are staying in contact with birth parents as agreed, but don’t want the ongoing responsibility of having to micromanage the communication."
- Katie, adoption professional + birth mom
"We love using AdoptConnect to keep in touch with our daughter’s birth mom. We started out using Facebook, but worried that other people would be able to access our private photos and information. Also, we were happy to learn that a part of our subscription fee went to support an organization that helps other families adopt."
- Jen + Robert, adoptive parents
"I like that I receive notifications from AdoptConnect when each post is uploaded by my daughter’s parents. I can choose when I want to open it or save it for later."
- Jessica, birth mom
