Is PairTree an advertiser or facilitator?

No. PairTree is an Adoption Enablement Platform™.

By definition, we’re not advertising or facilitating.

We are a technology company that supports licensed adoption professionals, so that they can better serve adopting families, expectant moms and birth moms. We do not directly identify, evaluate, or match the parties, or take any other steps to facilitate the adoption or place a child. We require adopting families to have a licensed adoption professional associated with their account. That professional will have visibility into the adopting family’s activity, and will be notified when an expectant mom or birth mom contacts the family so that they can provide guidance.


FYI -- there are a number of states, like Pennsylvania, where their laws do not mention advertising for adoption anywhere in its statutes. States/territories including Alaska, Arizona, American Samoa, Arkansas, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming, also do not mention advertising in their statutes.
