A parent profile is the term often used by adoption agencies and online matching sites. The parent profile is one way potential adoptive parents can tell more about themselves, allowing expectant parents to review information about them before making the decision to match with a couple.
Profiles vary in length from a few pages to an entire book. They often contain pages of information about the couple, their marriage, their family, their homes, their careers, their dreams for their future child as well as their desires for openness and future contact.
Parent profiles are generally the first things that expectant parents view when finding a family for their child.
