When faced with an unplanned pregnancy there are so many questions a birth mom may have. It can be overwhelming when a woman who is pregnant looks for help planning for her future and the future of the baby. She likely will have many feelings and questions. What will it mean if I put my baby up for adoption? Will I be able to be part of the process if I choose adoption? Can I choose the adoptive parents? What if I want to be a part of the child’s life? Who do I talk to that can help me make a decision? How do I go about the process of adoption for my baby? If I talk to someone, is it confidential? Will I be forced into putting my baby up for adoption if I talk to an adoption caseworker? Will it cost me any money to talk to an agency about adoption? I’m pregnant and need help, where do I go?
Making a good adoption plan for your baby starts with having accurate information. It also starts with having a trusted local adoption agency to help you figure out what is right for you. You’re not ‘putting baby up for adoption’ instead, you can be part of making a good adoption plan for the baby. Meeting with an adoption caseworker is free to a birth family. It is confidential and is not pressuring you, it is helping you through the process to make the right decision for you and for the baby. Being a part of your baby’s life is a decision you make. Choosing the adoptive parents and what kind of openness you want is part of placing a baby for adoption and decisions you make.
