If you are considering adoption, we can answer questions you may have. Although we are not an adoption agency, we can give you several referrals of qualified adoption agencies that will support you through the process of making an adoption plan.
In today’s world, adoption is very different. You, as the birth mother, control the decisions throughout the process.
As you make your decision, a few questions for you to consider are:
Q: How can adoption be good for my baby and me?
If you are not ready to be a parent, you can still give the gift of life by choosing adoption. You can plan your baby’s future by selecting a stable, loving, family to care for your baby. At birth, you can see your baby, name your baby, love your baby. If you choose you can get updates on your child’s progress while you continue your education and career goals. Finally, you avoid the trauma and heartache of an abortion. You can be proud of your decision for adoption!
Q: Can I choose a family for my baby?
Yes! With most adoption agencies you can choose a family friend, acquaintance or someone who has been recommended to you, even someone in another state. Or you can choose from couples screened by your agency who have been waiting to become parents.
Q: How can I be sure my child will not be neglected or abused?
Adoptive families approved by your agency must meet standards that are shared with you. In an open adoption, you will see for yourself how well your child is cared for and how much your child is loved.
