questions about adoption?
Whether you’ve already decided to place your baby for adoption or are still researching your options,
you probably have a lot of questions. We have the answers for you.
Birthmothers come to us for many reasons. You may be unable to financially support a child. You may be at a place in your life where you are not emotionally ready. No matter what the reason, you are making this decision because you want what is best for your child. We understand this is a difficult choice, and we are here to support you 24/7. Adoption is a loving decision. It takes a great deal of love and sacrifice to even consider it. We can help you explore parenting and adoption and let you determine what is right for both you and your baby at this time in your life.
In an open adoption, the birthmother may choose the adoptive family rather than having an agency choose one for her. We provide a large selection of loving families that are eager to adopt. Birthmothers may decide on the amount of contact they wish to have. Some birthmothers want letters and photos; others want visits and/or phone calls. The choice is up to you, and depends entirely on your needs and wants.
Every adoptive parent is thoroughly evaluated through a home study conducted by a licensed agency. The home study process includes assessments of their character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency will run background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. A social worker will also inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child. We also require education for adoptive on adopting and parenting. Following the placement of a child into an adoptive home, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure the families we offer you are going to be excellent parents for your baby.
Yes! We encourage you to choose your baby’s adoptive family from the pool of families that we have approved. We will assist you in the initial contact with them. If you want to, you can spend time with them on your own to get to know them better. Many birthparents and adoptive families meet for dinner, go to doctor’s appointments together, talk on the telephone, and/or write to each other. You decide how open or private you want your relationship to be.
