We are always amazed by the strength and wisdom of the birth moms we work with making their adoption plan. We will walk you through the steps, getting to know you, what you want and what you are comfortable with, and what your needs are. These days adoption is very individualized – there are not a lot of “you have to …” We will meet with you regarding your options and work with you to decide on your options. We will be preparing you for how you may feel during pregnancy, the hospital stay, and after the placement. You will not sign any permanent paperwork until three days after you give birth. We will collect your family and medical history for the child’s medical records. Counseling is available throughout the pregnancy, hospital stay, as well as after the adoption placement. Our goal is for you to feel proud of your selfless and difficult decision, and confident in where your child is, who will be parenting him or her, and what the future holds. Contact us to get started!
Many birth fathers choose to participate, and we welcome that. Sometimes the birth father participates with the birth mom, and sometimes he participates separately from the birth mom. Some birth fathers do not choose to participate at all, or they may be unknown or unreachable. Our state law has a variety of ways to notice him in order to make sure he knows about the adoption and his options, or if unknown or unreachable, that his rights are addressed legally. Birth moms are encouraged to invite the birth father to participate if appropriate, or you do not have to contact him at all. We will take care of everything for you!
You have a variety of options in making an adoption plan. We will discuss your individual situation, review your options and desires, and then put into action what will be needed to make your plan a reality. You have options regarding choosing a family or not, options regarding medical care and what happens in the hospital, options regarding the level of openness you desire before and after delivery, and many other options. We never want our birth moms to feel overwhelmed so we walk step by step with you. The first step is to contact us!
Yes, if you want to choose the family, and we have profiles on this site! We want you to be absolutely comfortable with the family to whom you are gifting your child. We encourage whatever level of openness you are comfortable with, such as talking or texting with the family, exchanging photos, meeting with them and so forth. Some birth moms prefer that we choose the family, which we are glad to do. We will choose based on what you are looking for in a family. Either way, it is your choice. Think about the qualities that would be a good match in a family for your child, and begin looking at our profiles!
