In February of 1997, Adoption.com was begun in a college computer lab by Nathan Gwilliam. Since that day in 1997, Adoption.com has been serving members of the adoption triad for more than 20 years.
So how has Adoption.com become the world's largest online adoption website?
Adoption.com has more than 1 million pages of content to help hopeful adoptive parents, expectant parents, birth parents, adoptees, and families created through adoption. The website's primary focus is aiding people touched by adoption in their journey towards adoption, reunification, or whatever adoption-related path an individual may be pursuing. Some of these incredible resources include the following:
- Parent Profiles (a feature where hopeful adoptive parents can create a profile for potential birth mothers to review),
- Reunion Registry (for adoptees and birth parents seeking to find one another),
- the world's largest adoption community with over 240,550 members and 2,960,000 posts,
"What brings us the most joy is being a part of the adoption journey of thousands of successful adoptive families and thousands of reunited adoptees and birth parents. It’s kind of like living in a Hallmark movie. Thank you for letting us be part of your amazing adoption journeys."
