Maybe adoption is the option you’re leaning towards, or maybe you haven’t considered it yet. If you are struggling with life circumstances and are looking for a solution for your pregnancy, adoptions could be a great fit. There are many options when it comes to adoption, and flexibility to remain in your child’s life if desired.
Adoption doesn’t mean motherhood is not yours anymore. You will be a mother no matter what type of adoption option you choose. With adoption these days, the birth mom is in control of what she wants to do with her child and how much contact she will have with the adoptive parents and child.
Open adoption is the most common type of adoption plan. With open adoption, the birth mom decides where she places her baby with relatives or someone else she knows well. If she wants, she can keep in contact with the child and adoptive parents.
Some women also choose to work with an adoption agency. It’s the agency’s responsibility to find possible adoptive families and handle all legal requirements. No reputable agency/lawyer will require anything financially.
Try to choose an adoption plan that works best for you!
You get to decide which adoptive family is a good fit for your child as the birth mother. Choose the environment and type of lifestyle you want for your child. If you work with an adoption agency, families go through a lengthy process including background checks, including criminal and abuse records. There is also a questionnaire about their home life, hobbies, religion, and more.
With open adoption, after finding a family, you can exchange contact information and anything else you want to share. You get to choose what kind of relationship you’ll have with the adoptive family. If you don’t want contact with the adoptive family or your child currently, it’s ok to remain anonymous as well.
