It's the letter of a lifetime.

Imagine your chances of adopting a baby boiled down to writing a letter to a woman you've never met. All you knew about her was that she had an unplanned pregnancy and was considering adoption for her child.

What would you say? Where would you even begin? Our writing service can guide you through the process from beginning to end. We'll show you how to write a profile that says everything you want -- and need -- to say. Since 2001, we've helped dozens of waiting parents create lasting connections with the birth families that were meant for them. And we can help you, too.

After all, who better to lead you through the writing process than a professional writer who adopted twice as a direct result of his own parent profile? A frequent workshop leader at the Adoption Resource Exchange with more than 200 edited profiles under his belt, he'll explain the common mistakes that waiting parents make and how to avoid them.

If you’re just starting your profile he’ll:

  • Show you how to write an honest, heartfelt letter that's every bit as individual as you are
  • Help you find your voice and show you how to translate your thoughts into memorable and meaningful stories that will resonate with prospective birth parents.

If you've already written your profile he’ll:

  • Review your letter and/or photos and give you honest feedback on what works, what doesn’t, and offer practical easy-to-implement tips on how to build on your strengths
  • Help you create an action plan to network your profile and offer suggestions on how to stay proactive and postive.

The process is quick, convenient and cost-effective. Most clients find that one hour-long phone session is enough to cover their needs. See for yourself and learn how small changes to your profile can make a big difference to your adoption journey!
