The adoption process can take years and mounds of paperwork before you bring your new child home. Dr. Lori Ingber, an adoptive mother of four from New Jersey, knew there had to be a way to use technology to speed up and simplify the process, so she created Parent Match. Parent Match is the first and only national, secure, and searchable technology for adoption professionals that allow agencies to communicate and match children with families in a way that was previously unavailable.
Ingber created Parent Match exclusively for agencies and their clients. Both adoptive parents and expectant mothers can specify what they want in a match in the Parent Match database. Once their private and anonymous information enters the system, the agencies who subscribe to the company will be able to match families.
In a recent survey about technology and adoption, 44 percent of those under age 44 trying to adopt in the United States said they worked with more than one adoption agency. Parent Match eliminates the need for another agency.
