A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
Proof of Concept
Explorations that test ideas and functionality.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.
Starting a family is a big decision, but for those looking to adopt it can feel like a slow, outdated process. On average, it can take parents up to two years to bring their kids home. That's why we started Adoptly, a revolutionary app-based platform that moves at the speed of modern life to connect those looking to start a family with adoptable kids nearby.
We've designed Adoptly to be intuitive and easy to use, based on familiar apps and modern-day social networking norms.
Once you've created a parenting profile, simply set your search criteria and Adoptly will instantly filter through our database, bringing the broadest range of adoptable kids straight to your fingertips.
Just swipe right if you’re interested, or left to keep looking. And if a kid, through their agency or foster care, likes you back it’s a match.
Start a chat to make sure it’s the right fit.
Adoptly lets you forget about all the bureaucratic stuff and focus on what really matters – welcoming home the perfect new addition to your family. It’s that simple.
All prospective parents are subject to government-mandated background checks. Adoptly guides you through this process when you sign up, to make it as easy on prospective parents as possible.*
*Approval and requirements vary by state. See website for more details.
We understand the importance of starting a family, but for those looking to adopt it can feel like a slow, outdated process. And with over 400,000 children currently in the foster system in the US, we thought there must be a better, smarter way. That's why we started Adoptly, a revolutionary new platform that forges faster connections and stronger bonds between prospective parents and kids in need.
Our goal is to make the process more personal, more seamless, and a little more fun. But we now need your support for the final push to bring Adoptly to life. Help us make this incredible technology a reality and forever change the way the world thinks about starting a family. With your help, Parenthood is just a swipe away.

Risks and challenges
We know there are huge challenges ahead to make this revolutionary technology a reality. In order for Adoptly to truly succeed, we'll need to continue to expand our network nationwide to include as many foster and adoption agencies as possible, which means expanding our outreach team. We'll also need to coordinate with local government and state agencies, not only to provide the most seamless adoption experience, but to make sure all safeguards and securities are in place for both parents and children. It won't be easy, but we're passionate and excited to build the future of a brighter, more efficient, more personal adoption process!
