Domestic adoption refers to US parents adopting a child who has been born in the United States. We can assist you with two types of domestic adoptions; Infant Domestic Adoption or a Designated Adoption.

Infant Domestic Adoption

In our Infant Domestic Adoption program, the match between the birth family and the prospective adoptive family happens when both are clients of Hope’s Promise. Once the adoptive family has a completed and approved home study, they are eligible to be selected by a birth family being counseled by Hope’s Promise who has decided to make an adoption plan for their child.

 Adoptive Family Criteria:
  • No family size restrictions
  • Couples who have been legally married for at least two years
  • No infertility restrictions
  • Christian families required
  • Ages between 21 and 50
  • Health insurance required

Designated Adoption

A designated adoption is a proposed adoption in which the pregnancy client identifies the family she wants to adopt her child prior to working with an agency in most cases. That family may or may not have an approved home study at the time they are designated. As prospective adoptive parents, there are three cases where we can help you with a designated adoption:

1. The adoptive family and the pregnancy client are Colorado residents
2. The pregnancy client is a Colorado resident and the adoptive family is not
3. The adoptive family is a Colorado resident and the pregnancy client is not

 Adoptive Family Criteria:
  • No family size restrictions
  • Couples who have been legally married for at least two years
  • No infertility restrictions
  • No religious criteria
  • No age criteria
  • Health insurance required

In these situations, HOPE’S PROMISE trained staff will provide the state required services for each situation. Please give us a call to see how we can best serve you.

The Children We Place

Due to the demographics of Colorado the majority of infants we place are Caucasian. However, the children we place are representative of the pregnancy clients we serve…diverse. Most are infants who go home with their adoptive parents directly from the hospital. We are a child-focused agency and work to serve the best interest of the child.

And Openness?

The vast majority of birth and adoptive parents we serve choose to meet one another and share identifying information as their relationship develops. Although our staff members value openness in adoption, we facilitate the type of placement that is right for each birth and adoptive parent. There are no agency requirements.
