Is Adoption RIght for You?

This is likely the biggest decision you’ve ever been forced to make and it should not be taken lightly, so it’s important that you first consider all of your options and there are a few. Every woman’s situation is different, and only you know what’s right for your baby – not the father, your parents, your sister or your best friend do not just go to them as there are trained specialists who can help you and we want to help you.

To help you decide if adoption is right for you, our Adoption Specialists have answered some of the most commonly asked questions about adoption:

  • Is adoption free?
  • How do I choose an adoptive family?
  • Can I have an open adoption with the family and my child?
  • Does the father of the baby have to be involved in the adoption?

These are just some of the questions we are asked, and there are much more, that is why we help people like you every day, so call us now.

We are here to help educate you about adoption, and only if and when you are ready will we take the next step of the adoption process if that is for you, so call us and lets us find out your best options you have.

The Adoption Plan

When you call us, you are in charge of the adoption process. Your Adoption Specialist is your partner, counsellor and friend throughout this process, and she will work closely with you to understand, and most importantly, fulfil all of your wishes for this adoption. She will ask you about your ideal adoptive family, the type of contact you wish to share with the family, the type of contact you wish to share with your child, how you envision the hospital stay, and much more.

Your answers to each of these questions will develop your adoption plan which will help us find the best adoption situation tailored specifically to your wishes.

Finding an Adoptive Family

We have helped countless pregnant mothers through this delicate process of finding the perfect adoptive parents who you are comfortable with. Because we have done this before and we are trusted we have hundreds of adoptive families, therefore you are sure to find the family who will provide your baby with the best life possible.

All of the families we have waiting for you have:

  • have completed a home study and various background checks.
  • are excited to get to know you through phone calls, emails and more.
  • have an adoptive family video.
  • have moved on from their infertility and are fully committed to adoption.

When you are ready to take the next step of the adoption process, your Adoption Specialist will send you family profiles and video profiles that best match what you are looking for in an adoptive family.

Getting to Know the Adoptive Family

Over the past few decades, adoption has become increasingly “open,” in that birth parents have more opportunities than ever to get to know the adoptive family prior to the placementAll adoption professionals, especially American Adoptions, believe the pre-placement contact is essential to a healthy adoption relationship, as it helps you confirm the people you’ve chosen will provide the life you’ve always dreamed of for your child.

Remember, your social worker can serve as a mediator for much of this contact, including conference calls and email exchange.

You may interact with the adoptive family through:

  • conference calls
  • email exchange
  • texts
  • social media interaction
  • a meeting in your hometown
  • interaction at the hospital

Some women are a bit nervous, albeit excited, to get to know the adoptive family as they will be the ones that have a part of your life during this time of transition. If this describes you, please remember that your social worker will be with you during this important step in the adoption process.

Preparing for the Hospital Stay

Your hospital plan is much like your adoption plan in that you have full control over the hospital stay. Your Adoption Specialist will help guide you in creating your hospital plan and understanding what to expect while at the hospital. For example, you may decide:

  • how much interaction you have with the adoptive parents
  • how much time you want to spend with your baby
  • who is the first to hold your baby
  • whether you want to leave together with the adoptive family
  • and many, many more

Once your baby is born, you usually must wait 48-72 hours before you can legally consent to the adoption.

After the Adoption Process

In today’s adoptions, “goodbye” doesn’t have to mean forever.

Most women who choose adoption receive a picture and letter updates for 18 years. Many also stay in contact with the adoptive family through emails, texts messages and social media updates. Some even plan personal visits once per year, or more.

However, you envision this relationship can become a reality, as long as you choose an adoptive family excited to pursue a similar relationship. We can help you find that adoption situation – one in which you are as much of a witness or participant in your child’s life as you feel comfortable with.
