Are you considering giving your baby the gift of a family? It takes a lot of love to consider an adoption plan. Adoption is a loving option for you and your child.
It can be confusing when you have people, like the birth father, your parents, or friends, giving you advice and opinions about what you should do. This can be very overwhelming. Be assured, you are not alone! Women of all racial backgrounds, economic status, ages, and religions have been faced with an untimely or unexpected pregnancy. We understand the fears you may encounter on your path with making the best choice for your situation. Give yourself some time to explore your options and decide what is best for you and your baby.
One of your options is making an adoption plan for your child. Adoption is a deeply personal life decision. It is the legal transfer of parental rights from one parent to another. However, it is much more than a legal procedure. Adoption is a lifelong, life-changing journey for all members involved-affecting you, your child, the birth father, your families, and the adoptive family. Making an adoption plan is a loving and courageous act. An adoption plan is a parenting plan.
Birth Mothers make a sacrifice and are considered heroes in our eyes because they give their child life and a loving family. As birth parents, – mother and father – making an adoption plan, you are eligible for pre-adoption counseling and support, pre and postpartum medical expenses, baby’s delivery and hospital care, reasonable living expenses until and after the baby is born. You are also provided post-adoption counseling and support.
