what is adoption?
Adoption is a permanent legal agreement that transfers guardianship from the biological parents to another family. Working with a professional adoption specialist or agency will guarantee you follow all adoption laws for your state. A birth mother (and father) never pay for adoption services. In some cases, there is adoption financial aid for rent, medical expenses, and transportation during your pregnancy. Different types of adoptions enable you to choose an adoption experience that meets your needs and desires.
Open adoptions allow visitation, contact, or updates between the biological parents and the adoptive family. This is a valuable option if you desire a connection or relationship with your child after the adoption process is final.
A semi-open adoption is a middle ground between open and closed adoption. You can still have contact with the adoptive family but communication will be limited to terms agreed upon before the adoption is finalized.
Closed adoptions do not allow for any contact between you and the adoptive family before or after the process. This is a good option for those who want a fresh start after an unplanned pregnancy. In some cases, your contact information can be shared with the child once they turn 18 and the child can decide if they would like to initiate contact.
Only you can decide if adoption is right for you and your child. No one should manipulate or force you to make any decision. You are capable of choosing the best outcome for your unplanned pregnancy. We are here to help you. Connect with us to talk about the adoption journey.
