Our Adoption Success Stories


You like us, you really like us!

Some people say it’s hard to put into words the joy of becoming a new parent. But try telling that to any of the dozens of couples who have successfully adopted a baby directly through the help of our adoptive parent profiles service.

Since 2001 they’ve had no difficulty at all describing their life-altering experiences, and the role we played in making them happen. Here’s a sampling of some of their comments.

We felt hopeful the entire time.” Karen and Damani, Aug. 16, 2019

“We really never imagined that our success would be through this wonderful website.  It was the most straightforward and easy process compared to the complex nature of adoption.  We registered with so many government agencies and private practitioners with absolutely no success.  We are so pleased to say our success came from the family we met on Canada Adopts! Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. We are absolutely ecstatic to have our wonderful son.  Our lives are full of joy now. Thank you & God Bless!” Name withheld by request, August 14, 2016

Earlier years

“We have successfully adopted. The birthmother first contacted us one day after you put us up on you website! Thank you for your timeliness in getting our profile up. It meant finding our baby boy and changing our world!”
Emily and Mike

“We got your email that we were online on Feb 18th and our birth mother contacted us via the site on the 19th and our baby boy was born on March 12th! It’s basically a land speed record for adoption!!! We’re ecstatic!”
Cindy and Rich

“Our story is somewhat of a fairy tale. We posted our profile on Canada Adopts! and were picked the very next day by the birth mother. We are THRILLED to be home with our beautiful baby.”
Jason and Jeremy

“It is with great pleasure and excitement that we share the news that our family has grown again, thanks to a match made through Canada Adopts. When our birthmother was considering her options, she sought help from the internet. Because of the site’s top placement in search engines, ease of navigation, and supply of profiles, our birthmother was able to carefully consider her options and make a contact in her own time and preferred method. We have and will continue to strongly recommend the use of Canada Adopts by prospective adoptive families as a part of their adoption toolkit.
Dustin and Michael

“I thought I should let you know that we have successfully adopted. The birthmother first contacted us one day after you put us up on you website! Thank you for your timeliness in getting our profile up. It meant finding our baby boy and changing our world!
Emily and Mike

“It’s time to remove our profile from CanadaAdopts! and move us into your success story category. We are now happily sleepless and changing diapers since the arrival of a newborn boy. The match came through CanadaAdopts. It’s been an amazing experience and we could not be more grateful for the role you and the registry played in this story. The birth mother saw your website and contacted us two weeks after our profile had been posted.
Danielle and Ha

“It’s official. You can move us to the top of the success story page once again! Our daughter’s birth mom found us thanks to Canada Adopts! and our family is now complete! It’s pretty incredible! When we started this journey back in 2008, we never imagined we would be so blessed with two amazing children – a boy and now a girl! In fact, our daughter was born almost four years to the day that our first profile appeared on Canada Adopts. We feel with both our kids, we’ve won the lottery twice! Thanks for being such a special part of our children’s stories, and for helping us become a forever family.
Ian, Darryl, Oliver and Elizabeth

“Great news!!! Thanks to your website, we are the happy parents of a newborn baby boy! We have also passed the frightful 21 day period… Yay!!!! We love the video you created for us so much. Thanks again for everthing!!!
Tanya and Douglas

“CanadaAdopts made our dream come true a second time!!!!! We adopted our first son in 2005. When we decided to pursue another adoption, our fear was because we had already adopted once, we wouldn’t be chosen again. Just a few months after we joined CA–we were chosen! If it weren’t for CA, she never would have found us!!!!!! This site can do what no licensee or social worker can–hit the masses.
Dana and Mike

“Thank you again for everything! Canada Adopts has been the most instrumental piece of both of our adoptions. Our boys came to us from other provinces and I know that without your service they would not be here with us today….Thank you so much for providing such a great service, it works and it changes peoples lives. I wanted to thank you one last time for your service, all your kind words, your speedy turn around times and a service that without a doubt has been the best part of our adoption process. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Nat and Mark

“Good news! We’ve been chosen by a birth mom and have a baby boy! Thankfully she went on Canada Adopts and saw our profile and picked us. You provide such a great service and we thank you for it. It worked for us and we’ll tell everyone we know.
Amy and Kimani

“Some great news. We have recently adopted a baby boy! His birth parents found us on Canada Adopts! We are thrilled. Thanks for all of your help and for the speedy turnaround time in terms of getting our profile up and running. We appreciate it!
Carol and Nelson

“We were found on your website by a birth mother and have passed the 21 day waiting period. You can move us to the Success Stories section of the website. Thank you so much for providing this wonderful resource! We did not employ any other resources, just Canada Adopts.
Scot and Calvin

“We first want to start off by thanking you for creating such a amazing website. We just recently passed our 30 day mark. We have adopted a beautiful baby girl. This could not have happened without your site. We truly can’t thank you enough.
Adriana and Josh

“I am emailing to ask you to please remove our profile from Canada Adopts. We were contacted by a birth mother. She found our profile on your website so we are glad we chose you! Our situation could not have worked out better and we feel very lucky that it did. Thanks to yeveryone at Canada Adopts! for bringing us together. We will definitely use the site again for our next adoption!
Alexia and Nic

“We are so thankful that Canada Adopts exists. Our newborn daughter Suzanne came to us because her birth mother read our profile on Canada Adopts. Our dreams have come true. Thanks! 
Nancy and Barry

“We wouldn’t have Natalie without Canada Adopts! Our birth mother is from another province and there is simply no way we would have connected the traditional way through a licensee/agency. Thanks again so much for helping us start our family. We’ll definitely be back for #2!!
Liz and Erin

“I wanted to let you know that you can add us to your list as an adoption success story. Through our profile on your site we were found by a young mother and her family. We were incredibly impressed with your responsiveness and you were particularly very helpful in guiding us through the process. While we did not receive an inordinate number of responses, all it takes is one and we could not be happier or more grateful.
Jason and Brian

“Well, I never thought this day would arrive, but it has!!! I received a call from our Adoption Agent yesterday telling us that we had been chosen by a birth mother, and guess what? She found us through Canada Adopts…We’re all doing great and the match has gone wonderfully. It’s literally been a match made in heaven and now we can’t wait for the next one to arrive, haha! Thanks for all your help and support through our adoption journey! You are doing a great thing!
Leah and Jamie

“I am thrilled to inform you that we are the proud parents of a baby boy. His birthparents contacted us after reading our profile on Canada Adopts and a short 7 weeks later he arrived.  We have found your site to contain a wealth of information and we still visit it regularly now that we are adoptive parents. We will definitely be in contact when we decide to add to our family.”
Jenny and Marcelo 

“We have some exciting news–in March of this year we were contacted by a birthmother who read our profile on Canada Adopts and in April, we became the adoptive parents of a healthy baby boy. We have just passed the wait period and we are thrilled to be new parents. Everything is great and we have you and Canada Adopts to thank for helping us realize our dream of being parents. Thank you so much.
Rachel and Scott

Anna was born on July 13th!! She is a healthy beautiful baby. Everything went very smoothly with our stay…and the drive home. We got home this past Saturday and have been adjusting so greatly having her here with us. It is the best!! Now you can put our photo up in the success stories!! We are so happy and excited that Anna is in our life and it truly is thanks to you and your website!…If it wasn’t for your site this would not be happening for us. We appreciate your enthusiasm and support:). It has been a crazy ride but an awesome one! Your website provides a truly useful and meaningful service. I can’t imagine what we would do without it.
Angela and Dan

It’s official! We are the parents of an incredibly sweet little girl, Marika Jordan! Our waiting period is over and we can breathe easy and enjoy our new little bundle. We are so happy to have found Canada Adopts! because the site was able to link us to our baby from across the country. I don’t think we would have a little one right now if it weren’t for the site. So thanks for all your help and you can move us to the SUCCESS STORIES! Yippee!
Patty and Kevin

I’m so excited to let you know we’ve just passed our 21 day wait period. Thank you so much for all of your profile help and support. Feel free to use any of this on your site. As long as you add us to the success list! ”
Janice and Moe

We are thrilled to let you know that we have become dads to a beautiful baby girl! Feel free to move us to the Success Stories page. Even though we met Emmy’s birth parents through a private licensee, we had several positive contacts through CanadaAdopts. We are so overjoyed and hope our story might help give hope to others on the journey.
Chris, Brian, and baby Emmy
