Is A Baby Step Adoption the Right Choice for Me?
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ADOPTION
If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and do not feel you are ready to parent, you may wish to consider adoption. We are here for you 24/7 to discuss your options related to your unplanned pregnancy. We are a local adoption agency based in PA, but we work with women all over the United States, and we can talk with you and help you through this experience.
No one can tell you why you should or shouldn’t consider adoption. The decision is yours to make. The decision to place your baby for adoption is not an easy choice for an expectant mother, but sometimes, it is the best choice. We are here to give you information about adoption and emotional support and provide you with the resources that will help you make an informed decision.
There are many reasons women make an adoption plan during their pregnancy. Some things you want to consider are:
- Financial Security
- Family Involvement
- The Stability of your Home and Relationships
- Your Plan for the Future
- What You Think is Best for your Child
YES! The decision is entirely yours to make. When you speak with your adoption counselor, she will ask what you are looking for in an adoptive family. Based on your criteria, we will provide you with profiles of waiting families. Once you have taken some time to look over the profiles, you will have the opportunity to meet or speak with the family or families you are interested in before you make your final choice for your newborn’s adoption.
YES! A Baby Step Adoption Agency believes it is your choice whether to have an open or closed adoption. We support whichever type of adoption you decide best fits your needs and the needs of your baby. Open adoption is an adoption where the birthparents and adoptive families have the option to contact each other during the pregnancy and after the baby is born. It is entirely up to the birthparents to decide the extent of contact. Closed adoption is a rare choice today. In a closed adoption the records of the biological parents are kept private when the family adopts the baby. In this scenario, there is typically little to no contact between the biological and adoptive parents.
YES! A Baby Step Adoption Agency will offer the most support and help for you and make sure it is court approved. We will help you receive as much as your state or the state of the adopting family allows. This includes medical, shelter, maternity clothes, living expenses, food, rent, transportation, counseling services, and more. There is no cost to you for placing your baby for adoption. We will help you with planning your adoption budget. You will never pay for your adoption.
When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, you have the right to make a choice that works for you.
