    Custom Searches

    Expectant moms select the personality types they are most interested in, or do a custom search to see how adoptive parents stack up in the specific areas they care about most.

Equitable &
Ethical Adoption

5% net profit donated

Adoption is lopsided. Birth moms give the most, and get the least. Providing ongoing support for birth moms should be a standard, not an option that expires. That’s why PairTree is pledging 5% of net profit to help provide support for birth moms… forever.

Andrew
& Allie

  • My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

    It's racially diverse! We also have playgrounds, parks, museums, everything NYC offers. Our building also has an indoor pool and children's playroom. We live in a safe area and we have a doorman 24/7. - Allie

  • Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

    We do not have kids. We hope to raise two or three children through adoption. - Andrew

  • We are the best choice because…

    We both are dedicated to raising intelligent, thoughtful, compassionate children. We both chose helping professions because we care about bettering humanity. - Andrew

  • Dogs or cats?

    Dogs are steadfast, loyal companions who can read your emotions. We have two dogs: Sandwich and Norm. We love our daily walks and the frequent adventures at the park and on hikes. - Andrew

Samantha
& Katherine

  • Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

    Both. I am rooted in traditional theologies of Catholicism, but I have grown to see the true presence of God in all of the blessings in my life. Spirituality keeps me connected - Katherine

  • If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

    I love nature so this is a tough question to answer. If I had to only pick one, I think it would be an RV as that gives me the best opportunity to see more of this beautiful world - Samantha

  • My favorite place in the World is...

    Home with my family - Katherine

  • Dogs or cats?

    Dogs, but I love cats too! - Katherine

Leigh Ann
& Robert

  • My favorite place in the World is...

    Home - Robert

  • If you had to pick a famous person to play you in a movie, who would it be?

    Sarah Michelle Gellar, I've been told we favor each other. Growing up the kids at my school would call me, "Buffy." - Leigh Ann

  • Complete the sentence, “I can’t live without……”

    God, my family and the outdoors - Robert

  • Do you have kids? How would they feel about a sibling?

    We have a son and daughter and they are so excited to welcome a new sibling. They have talked about it ever since we decided to start our adoption journey and we pray that their wish comes true. - Robert

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.
