WooHoo Wellness & Pregnancy Overhaul, Module #9

—- Sim Puts child for adoption —-

For babies, toddlers and children.

  • Ask partner, if any, about putting child for adoption,
  • reaction chosen by the player if pop-ups are on, by preferences and chance otherwise.
  • Put child for adoption (you choose which family they go to).
  • Reactions depending on pregnancy wish.

Sims who want children will react more strongly.

The parents will get a choice of 3  moodlets related to this for 2+ days afterwards, at random, as they think back on it.


Choice to give child to Foster System or Sim World Agency for Adoption. The former doesn’t give the adoptive family any info regarding the birth parents, and doesn’t let them choose to whom the child should go. The Agency, however, lets the player choose where the child will go, and allows for contact.

—- Sim Adopts a Child —-

Discuss with partner if any.

Adopt, either through Foster (less choice, much cheaper and no selection – basically instant like the game’s system, to leave people an ‘out’) or Sim World Agency for Adoption (selective, includes application process and assessment on various things, includes a home visit; at the end, chooses a child for you, but lets you pick yourself if you would rather).

During the visit, your Sim gets assessed on wealth, housing, household, career, social links, outfit. 

You are supposed to go through the options when prompted. 

The Adoption Agent should stick close to your Sim’s mailbox and return there shortly after going other places, so they’re always easy to locate. 

Once you’ve completed the event objectives, you can keep chatting or end the even by closing it 🙂

Your Sim will get buffs depending on the Adoption Agent assessment of their situation for each criteria. 

Once the visit is over, the wait begins.

I think it’s easy enough to get accepted.

NOT READY YET: Interactions to enable bio parents to stay in touch with adopting family and reveal themselves to the child later if family agrees. Interactions to tell family / friends about adopting away your child and sentiment reactions.

Looking for one’s biological parents

Sims adopted at baby and toddler age will not know they’re adopted until their parents tell them. Sims adopted at ‘Child’ age will know.

Later in life, if told about their adoptee status, Sims can decide to interact or not with birth parents. If the biological parent put them for adoption through the Sim World Agency for Adoption, the Sim’s adoptive parent has all the info needed to contact the biological parent and the adopted Sim simply will have to ask their parent. If the Sim was given to the Sim Foster System however, that information won’t be available. The Sim will be able to engage in procedures to try to find their biological parents regardless but might fail.

If a Sim has found info about their biological parent, they can contact them and decide to meet in person, in a ‘social event’ of sorts in which the Sim will be able to ask why they were given for adoption and all that.

Similarly, if a parent wishes to find their child whom they gave for adoption, the same process will apply. Parents who gave their child for adoption with the Sim World Agency for Adoption can contact the adopting family at any time to ask for news and ask if the child has been told they’ve been adopted. If yes, the parent can ask for a visit. The child will either accept or not, if they do, the same process of meeting and explaining themselves as is available to the grown-up adopted children will be available.

The Adoption module does not have any compatibility concerns. It is compatible with every mod under the sun.

  1. I know you said that this is compatible with every mod under the sun, so sorry if this is a crazy question but is the fostering compatible with the LittleMsSam foster mod? Also when do you think it will be released publicly?

    1. Yes it is compatible, there’s no reason why it wouldn’t be, my module just adds alternative ways to adopt, doesn’t touch any game stuff, it’s just new added tuning.
      It goes public around the 20th of April

      1. When will this module be fully finished by chance?
        (Sorry if it’s an annoying question)

      2. The person which adopted the child of my sim lady, became suddenly her sister ?? Now in the Family tree the daughter is listed as „biological child“ and „niece“.
        Is this a bug ???
        Cause the lady which adopted the child has nothing to do with the family and now she’s the sister of the mom

  2. Where do I click on to adopt? I don’t see it. I see an advance wheel that says you must discuss with your partner, but it is grayed out and I can’t select anything.

  3. Hello, Lumpinou

    I wanted to knows, when is the module get release for the public ?

    Thanks you have a nice day 😘

    1. Translations totally depend on translators, I have no control over that. If someone wants to translate, they do. I haven’t had anyone reach out with a Czech translation yet :/

  4. does the bio parents search work with adopted children from the phone? or did the kids have to be adopted through the mod?

  5. My sims and their partner agreed to give their child up for adoption before the child was born. It seems now that the child is born, I am not given the option to do so. May you assist?

    1. Whether born or not doesn’t impact that agreement. Clicking on the child, you should see the adoption menu, unless another child was adopted away in the meantime…

  6. For some reason, when I click for a parent to “call adoption agency to look for host family” nothing happens and I’m stuck with this kid lol

    1. How old is the parent? If teen, re download the mod. If adult – make sure the bassinet is accessible, even just walk the sim close to it first and then try

  7. I can’t seem to find the adoption options in my pregnancy menu. Am I looking in the right place?

    1. Yes it would be under ‘family and Pregnancy’, on your sim and on other Sims depending on what option you are looking for. What is it that you are trying to do?

  8. I had an idea with your mod. Perhaps in the future you will be able to do this. The father left the family, and the mother died. One of the adult children wants to give up his younger brothers for adoption. Is it possible to do this with your mod? Or do you need to part with them in the old fashioned way? And another thought. If the father is gone, is it possible to think of a mechanism for finding him as a search for biological parents? I’m sorry for my awful english

  9. If my sim is a young adult, makes a good amount of money, lives by herself, as a house valued at 130000 simpletons, has good skills, but not a lot of money (only 3k) , does she have a good chance of getting approved for sim world adoption?

      1. She has two good friends from uni, and has good relationships with her 3 sisters, two brothers, and her mom and dad. Aside from that, she has many acquaintances, and no enemy’s or disliked people. She hasn’t gotten a job yet, but she is about to attend her graduation ceremony for a normal degree in psychology, after the ceremony she will become employed in the education career (professor branch).

  10. Also how can “I dress to impress” for the in-home visit? Is there a certain style I should go for?

  11. I’m unable to tell my sim they are adopted. I’ve reuploaded it multiple times but I don’t see a pregnancy and wellness option when clicking on adopted child.

      1. I have the same problem. Can’t tell my teen she’s adopted… Can you help?

      2. Check in the relationship status from them towards their parent if it says already “Adoptive Parent” and let me know.

  12. For storytelling purposed, is it possible to say a sim that is teen and older is adopted? my sims have already grown up before I even found out about this mod 🙁

    1. I will add ways to do this kind of thing soon, to some extent; it’ll still be a manual process but with instructions it won’t be hard for people to use

      1. Thanks! My teen sim will almost grow up, he has two dads but he didn’t “really” adopt him in game, I made all three of them in CAS but I want the kid to know that he’s adopted (which is pretty obvious bc he has 2 dads I know) but I still would love that he knows he has biological parents somewhere (which Im planning on creating in CAS and putting them in the world)

        Sorry for my english and I hope I make sense!

  13. Hi, I adopted a child through foster. Told him he was adopted when he was a teen. where can i find the options to search for his birth parents? I saw in the discription for this module that he can do research to find them? 🙂

  14. Not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if this is conflicting with another mod but my sim doesn’t have the option to reveal their child is adopted. The child in question is of teen age. Any idea what going on?

  15. Love this mod, but I’m having an issue with something. My Sim was adopted as a baby via the Foster system and told as a teen she was adopted, but there are no options for her to look for her birth parents that I can see. I’ve looked at her own menu’s but there’s no option relating to her own adoption

    1. Maybe the parent died and therefore the hale can’t find them. This is a situation I will need a way to offset in a future update but as if now it may happen thus way…

      1. Hi! First of all I love your mod it’s wonderful! I just had a question about adopted children/teens: I adopted a child and when I click on “contact birth parents” nothing happens, is it normal?

    2. If this happens all the time even if you cheat test by aging up the child then please let me know as that would translate some other issue. Thanks

      1. I have just adopted a sim via the foster system and cheated to age them up and I have the option to obtain info, so maybe for my other sim her parents died?

  16. Hello! I just downloaded this mod bc I wanted to give my sims baby up for adoption and have that whole interaction with Baby’s father. The adoption options/menu are not showing up when clicking on sims or infant babies. I had the baby whisked away to a family in game bc I have Whicked Whims on. Is there anything I need to do to get this mod to work? Thank you!

      1. Thank you for your reply! I read back over the directions and realized I deleted the core files. Thank you for being responsive and an awesome creator?

        One question, your Adoption Module 9 mod will not work on babies born through WW interactions only base game woohoo interactions?

        Thank you!

  17. Hello!
    Great mod ☺️
    However, my female sim has been refused for adoption twice… She is a uni profesor, level 6 career, 3000 simoleons savings, a small house (the child would share a bedroom with his teen sister adopted through foster care) but enough for them. My sim has lots of friends, 2 sisters and 1 brother. I don’t understand why it is not working for her… Does she need a bigger house?

  18. Hi, I have a problem with finding biological parents. My sim is a kid now, was adopted when she was a baby and there was an empty button which made my adoptive mom talk to the kid and she was confused after so i figured the mom told her, but the moodlet were empty and now the girl has empty button in the Wellnes and pregnancy section (after clicking on herself) but it doesn’t do anything. I thought it migt be the “looking for parents” option but it doesn’t work. Do you possibly know where the problem is?

  19. This entire mod is absolutely fabulous! I’m playing a complicated rags-to-riches story where my sim had an unwanted teen pregnancy with Malcolm Landgrab (Who was not accepting AT ALL) and was kicked out of the house by her terrible mother. My poor homeless sim had to put the baby up for adoption in the cheapest way possible, and is now doing quite well. I moved to play the adopted daughter for a while (who was adopted by Leila and Oliana Illes, because the game loves me!) and now she’s trying to discover more about her birth parents! I’m so excited to see how this mod works out for this situation. For lineage reasons, I hope there is a way to restore my girl back to her birth family trees but maintain the close bond with the adoptive family.

    Thank you so much for this, BTW!

  20. Hi, I put a child up for adoption in one household through the foster care system, but now I cannot adopt that same child in another household. The child just does not appear on the adoption selection. Is this standard (i.e. the child is now deleted because I put it up for adoption) or is there something wrong with my mod?
    Thanks in any case. This mod adds a lot of great value to the game.

  21. Hi! So thankful for a mod that runs so smoothly! I’ve just downloaded your mod so i can put my child up for adoption. My sim is currently still pregnant and i’ve discussed with partner about adoption and talked about worries etc. however when clicking onto my sims to put child up for adoption, its still saying i need to discuss with partner? i’ve downloaded the files correctly ( straight in mod file with wicked whims it’s not any further than my mods folder ) i’m just wondering if ive missed anything!

  22. So how do I put a child up for adoption when I have no partner to discuss it with and the child isn’t mine (i.e. not biological)? I’m trying to run an orphanage but I can’t figure out how to put the children into other families

  23. If you adopt are the sims randomly generated or would their parents be townies? Also I had a sim that was given up for adoption through the foster system and they just disappeared from existence, I can’t find them when going into another family and choosing to adopt through the foster care system. Is that sim gone forever?

  24. Hi, I may have a problem with adoption. For some reason my Sims are prohibited from adopting a child through the Sim World Agency for Adoption (I want to try that option but can’t make it work). I tried adopting about 8 times now (6 different families) and every single time my application was declined (7 times declined, don’t know about the 8th one, it glitched and it didn’t let me see the result at all). It seems to be failing at money and job. Everything lower than 50k appears to be too low for the agent and my Sims are getting embarrassed moodlet for being unemployed when they have a job (and quite a high level as well) or it’s telling me their level is too low (this is happening with a Sim on level 5 in a custom career where level 5 is the maximum and very hard to achieve). Last time the agent even got in the fight with Bella Goth on his way out (I know, this has nothing to do with your mod but it deffinitely added to my frustration).

    I’m near tears now! What am I doing wrong? Could it be a mods conflict or do my Sims just suck?

    1. First, the adoption application is not randomly accepted or declined very specific scoring’s that need to be reached and so long as your Sims don’t reach them they’re going to be refused again and again. Custom carriers maybe messing up with the system although they should not be… But I would explain why they’re not recognized as working, it may depend on how the person who made the custom careers set up honestly.

  25. Lumpinou,

    Why can’t one of my sims be chosen as the adoptive family in other households I play? For example, I was playing the Jang household and tried to give Billie up for adoption and send her to a sim family I created. Is this simply not available?

  26. This mod is really cool! But I have one problem. Namely, the problem with biological parents after adoption. Interactions are empty. After telling your child about the adoption, the slots are empty. Blank emotions, blank notifications and blank interactions.

    1. Hi, I have the same problem and I wanted to know if you have found a way to fix it. I’m happy to know it was not just me with that problem

    2. There is no text, an empty interaction is shown, and the same is true when he wants to contact a biological or adoptive family.

  27. Hey there! I was just wondering how to start the process for adopting and fostering. At the moment my sims have discussed adoption, but all I can find is adoption in the base game where the baby just turns up so I must be missing something. Thank you!

    1. The option you are looking for it would be under the “family and pregnancy” menu once the Sims in question have discussed the matter

  28. how do I get the bio parents to reveal to friends they adopted their child away/ placed their child for adoption? The child is still a baby I play on long life span but they have had another child who has recently became a toddler so how is the child they placed for adoption not a toddler yet?

  29. Hello, sorry if this is bothering but I downloaded the mod and my game started to freeze all the time. I don’t know if it’s because I did something with the files. Was I supposed to leave something out, delete a certain file, or something? Idk what’s going on I just really want to be able to use the mod without my game freezing itself. ;-;

    1. My mod does not cause crashing or freezing of the game. If your game seems to have such issues that would be related to it, it would suggest that some core files were deleted or accidentally not included in your mods folder. I am not aware of any conflict that could cause this, but it is not out of the question either as I can’t keep track of every single thing other creators are releasing.

  30. Unfortunately, I still have a problem with empty interactions during adoption. I don’t know what to do. A speech bubble without text is shown whenever I want to do something related to adoption. Any advice?

  31. Hello ! First of all Thank you for this amazing mods !! I play with RPO, first impressions and my game is so much enhanced ! I definitly cannot go back to regular gameplay now lmao
    But i was juts wondering, i put a child up for adoption through the Agency option (so i chose the adoptive family) and then when i went to play with the adopted child, i saw that his family tree was messed up (basically, his adoptive moms were listed as his bio mothers on the family tree, he lost his connection with his bio parents but kept his bio-uncles and bio-grandparents) Anyway a whole mess lmao. So i wanted to know if it was me who did something wrong or if that is just a thing that happens with this mod ? I play with wicked whims as well and downloaded the extra file required !
    Thank you again for your awesome mods !!

    1. Two things: it’s very important to not do adoptions between families that have any sort of link (ie if someone married someone from the other family, it’ll mess up the tree to adopt between these two families).
      Secondly, there was a bug with certain adoptee trees getting messed up when entering CAS, this has now been solved.

  32. Thank you for this Mod,
    My sims gave her child to the foster system, is their is any way to see who adopted my child ? Is he still in the world or not ?

    thank you

    1. Yes, the Sim is in the world! You could use a mod such as Mccc or Show Sim Info to find where they are; otherwise, you could look through the household management through all the in wold households to see who has the baby / child 🙂

  33. As a IRL adoptee with a traumatic story, this particular mod was quite the experience to read about and check out. While impossible to capture the nuance of individual adoptee feelings I think the person who made this mod has come the closest ever to adding all the possible ins and outs of adoption that isnt kinship placement (i understand the limitations set by the game do not reflect your knowledge or intent) as well as LilMsSam handled foster care and I really appreciate the care and concern gone into this creation especially for the inclusion of the birth parent searching for the child and the different moodlets for sims that want and do not want children. If the creator is an adoptee or not, thank you for adding a level of realism for adoptee, adoptive and birth family storytellers. All your mods are amazing.
