Add self-matching to your adoption process!

Whether you are looking for couples to adopt or hoping to connect with an expectant mom, PairTree increases and accelerates ethical connections between Adopting Families and Expectant Moms.

We're proud to partner with...

  • I didn’t know that meeting an adoptive family online like this was even an option. Makes it easy to see everyone together.

    D. Expectant Mom

  • I like seeing SO many families in one place - and that I get to pick who to talk with all on my own instead of someone telling me I have only a few to choose from.

    F. Expectant Mom

    Choose an Adopting Parent's Personality!

    75% of Birth Moms say an Adopting Parent's personality-type is as important to them as an open adoption. That’s why we created LifePair™ - a proprietary, personality-based matching system that evaluates 100+ unique attributes to inform an adoptive parent’s personality type.

    We give Expectant Moms meaningful information about the Adopting Family – to help her choose a future.

    Avoid Adoption Scams

    Our Verify system is the most robust scam detection system of any self-matching platform, allowing you to make connections with confidence. We use comprehensive identity verification software to prevent adoption scammers.

    If you are contacted by someone that flags one of our markers, we notify you within 48 hours with actionable next steps.

    Make a Difference!

    5% net profit donated

    Adoption is lopsided. Birth moms give the most and get the least. Providing lifetime support for birth moms should be standard, not an option that expires. That’s why PairTree donates 5% of net profit from every subscription, every month to organizations that provide support for birth moms.

      I am scared of failing. Whether it be preaching or just in general, I try my best to make sure I put my best foot forward - Erik

    • What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

      I think about how small we are in the grand scheme of things and how beautiful the twinkling of the stars really is. - Shileshia

    & Victor

    • My favorite place in the World is...

      Any warm, sunny beach - Denise

    • We are the best choice because…

      We are the best choice because we are an experienced, loving, happy family. We both come from loving families and we are passing down beautiful family values and traditions. - Denise

    • Favorite season and why?

      We love summer because there is no school. We live a couple miles from the beach and go swimming and surfing several times a week with friends. We have a pool and boat. We love having parties. - Denise

    • If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

      My wife, Denise. - Victor

    • When you argue, what’s it about?

      Who gets to control the remote for the TV. - Clint

    • My favorite place in the World is...

      Anyway where with a beach. Some of our most treasured memories are on the beach taking walks, playing in the waves and building sand castles with our son. - Carla

    • The most special thing I own is...

      Currently my home, because that is where my family is. - Clint

    • Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

      Happy and content in her life and her decision to place her baby/babies with our family. - Clint

    As seen in...

    Once we went “live,” we connected with our son’s birth mother in less than a month. In the end, it was far less of a wait, and definitely far less cost. We have an open adoption with the birth parents and couldn’t be happier to have this relationship for all of us.
