Older Couple Adoption in Arizona

Older Couple Adoption in Arizona


Can older couples adopt? Absolutely! As an expectant mother creating an adoption plan, you have the option to choose the family that will adopt your unborn child and that might include an older couple.

When working with Adoption Choices of Arizona, you will be given several family profiles to review. The profiles of the families will directly reflect the characteristics that you desire in the family (you will have discussed this with your adoption counselor). Older couple adoption is an option!

Adoptive Family Considerations for Birth Parents

Characteristics might include the family dynamic, ethnic background, family traits and values, or even where they live. Other characteristics that you desire might include the age of the adoptive family. You may choose a family, couple, or single who is older to adopt your child. There are many reasons why you might want to choose an older age family/person to adopt your child, and there are many reasons why people choose adoption at older ages. Some of these reasons might include:

  • Putting off starting a family until careers or financial security are established
  • Many years of infertility treatments
  • Creating a “second” family when children are grown

And therefore, you might find an older couple or single more financially secure, responsible and well experienced in raising children, and they want a child so deeply that you can be guaranteed they will love and spoil your child for all life.

Older Couple Adoption

Some more advantages of older age adoptions:

  • Emotional maturity
  • Financial stability
  • Stable values
  • Stable marriages/partnerships (for couples)
  • Time and patience
  • Healthier and more active than ever before
  • Extended life expectancy allows longer active parenting years
  • It isn’t important to look like a young parent. More and more people are putting off starting a family until their 40s and what you look like isn’t important.

If you truly want to parent, age is not an obstacle. If you want an older couple/single to adopt your child, it is possible. To begin your adoption journey, contact Adoption Choices of Arizona online or call us to discuss your options!

CPS Involvement

If the Department of Child Protective Services is involved in your life, private adoption (where you choose the adoptive parents), is still an option for you. Do not hesitate to call. There is only a small window of time that you have to make an adoption plan and the baby can be released from the hospital directly to the adoptive family.

We will come to your hospital room or wherever you want to meet and walk you through the process of making a life long plan for your baby.

Learn About Adoption

No one knew I was pregnant. My plan was to have the baby and use Safe Haven at the hospital. When the hospital social worker told me CPS was Safe Haven or I could pick my own family through an adoption agency – I did not want my baby in a foster home so I called Adoption Choices. They were in my room in less than an hour, helped me with the paperwork and my discharge. I did this in the best interest of my baby. Sometimes I’m sad… but I know my baby is happy and in a wonderful home.
