Adoption Profile Feedback

Get the Honest Feedback You Need

Designers at workYou never get a second chance to make a first impression. From the start your adoption profile must stand out from the thousands of other profiles out there.

Although it may feel good when your family and friends give you positive feedback about your adoption profile, typically the comments do not identify missing information, offer an unbiased critique of your photographs and captions, provide recommendations regarding your use of anecdotes and your overall design, and advice about avoiding common mistakes.

You need this feedback to dramatically strengthen your adoption profile. Everyone benefits from a fresh perspective and honest, direct feedback. We will give you both written and verbal feedback and take the time to answer all of your questions.

Many families tell us that the Adoption Profile Professional Review offered the exact input they knew they needed yet were struggling to get–even from their attorney or social worker.

Adoption Profile Professional Review

The Adoption Profile Professional Review includes a 1-3 page written summary of our feedback that highlights areas where your profile excels, as well as areas where further refinement would make a significant difference.

We will provide specific recommendations in these and many other areas:


Most prospective adoptive parents think that the purpose of the adoption profile is to share information about themselves. This is true, but it’s not the only purpose of the adoption profile.

In addition to sharing information about yourself, you must also create an image in the reader’s mind as to what life will be like for their child as a member of your family. Accomplishing these two things in a sincere and honest way is what authenticity is all about.

Photographs & Captions

The photographs and captions you put in your adoption profile are often the determining factor as to whether or not someone reads your profile–not chooses you to parent, but READS YOUR PROFILE at all. At a minimum, expectant parents make initial judgments based on your photos.


A profile is more memorable and more interesting to read when you show your values, loves, and personality through anecdotes, stories, and pictures. Do not simply report facts when you can tell a short story.

After you have reviewed our written feedback we will schedule a call to answer your questions and further discuss ideas for strengthening your adoption profile and making it the best it can be. This follow-up phone call typically lasts 30-45 minutes.

The Profile Review Process

We will contact you to schedule your review within one business day of your purchase and are typically able to complete the review within 1-2 weeks. If you need a faster turnaround, just ask.

This service begins with a current draft of your adoption profile. The stronger the draft, the more value you get from this service.

If you don’t have a profile yet and want help getting started, as well as coaching and feedback during the process and a professionally-designed profile, learn about our Profile Coaching & Graphic Design Service.

Adoption Profile Testimonials

Thank you Hal…for everything! Ana and I have been amazed by the services you provide. I can’t thank you enough for being a key player on our ‘dream team!’

P.S. We plan to adopt more children, so this is not goodbye. 😉

Bill and Ana

I just wanted to shoot you an email to thank you for all of your hard work in getting our awesome profile and website together. It all came together so nicely and really caught our birth mom’s eye. She loved everything about it and liked having the Internet presence (Facebook, website, YouTube, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.) to really help us come alive. It set us apart from everyone else.

Laura & Kara

My wife and I worked with My Adoption Advisor to modify our adoption profile and picture book and it wasn’t long afterward that we were chosen by a birth mother and father and brought home our beautiful daughter, Laurel.


Thank you so much for your feedback. After sleeping on it for a night we’ve got all kinds of new ideas about what we can do with our profile. I have no doubt it will be much improved.

Also, I really like your relative ranking format as a way of organizing your comments. It helped highlight the things we need to work on most.

Thank you again! We’ll keep you posted!

We wanted to share our wonderful news with you. We have been blessed with a sweet baby girl. Her name is Zoey and she was born in February. We had a very fast match and birth. Zoey’s birthmother said that as soon as she saw our profile book she knew we were it. She forced herself to read other profiles, but knew in her heart that we were the perfect match for her. We wanted to say thank you very much for all of your wonderful and helpful assistance on our adoption profile. We will continue to recommend you as a great resource in the adoption process.
