Last Minute
Adoption Planning

My baby was just born. Am I too late to plan for putting my baby up for adoption?

The short answer is NO, it’s not too late! Last-minute adoption planning is more and more common, and we are here to help. Working with a reputable, local agency like Adoption Partners of Michigan will ensure that you make the plan that is best for YOU.

Some important facts:

There is no rush! We want you to decide what’s right for you without pressure or coercion. Take the time you need to thoroughly consider your options, gather information, and be in the right frame of mind to make your decision.

You have rights. You are entitled to full and accurate information on all your options. If you are considering adoption, you can choose an adoptive family, and you can decide if you want an open or closed adoption. You also deserve to be supported by a professional adoption counselor who is advocating for YOU.

There is no judgment! Maybe you figured you would have to take your baby home but now that feels impossible. In thinking about adoption now, we see this as your wanting to do what’s best for yourself and for your baby.
