HOW DOES ADOPTION WORK?

1

GATHER INFORMATION

If you’re facing an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy, one of your first steps should be to gather information to help you decide what’s best for you and your baby. If you choose to parent, we salute you and wish you all the best. If choosing between an abortion and adoption, there are so many factors to consider. We are here to help you through the process and help you decide the best option for you. We can give you the maximum pregnancy help and help plan your budget.

CREATE A PERSONALIZED ADOPTION PLAN

Adoption today is very different from those from the past. Gone are the days of “giving up your baby for adoption” and never seeing or hearing from them again. Many birthmothers today choose an open adoption where you do maintain contact with the adoptive family. You may also choose a closed
adoption where you don’t have contact at all. You have so many choices today if you choose adoption, and we can help you navigate these options and make the decision that works best for you and your baby.

CREATE A HOSPITAL BIRTH PLAN THAT WORKS FOR YOU

Your hospital birth plan allows you to prepare for your hospital stay and helps you prepare for the birth of the baby. It also allows your caseworker and the adoptive family to know exactly what you want during your delivery. We can help you create a birth plan that works for you.

POST PLACEMENT

We know your story doesn’t end when you place the baby for adoption. We are here to support you as you recover both physically and emotionally. A Baby Step Adoption offers lifetime support. Your caseworker is a friend and confidant and will help you find your best life moving forward. We will help you make a plan for your future, and we will be with you every step of the way.

    I was pregnant in high school, broke up with my boyfriend and I didn't know where to turn. Barbara Casey and my caseworker helped me understand the whole adoption process and I finally began to relax when I located the perfect family for my child. We have an open adoption which has given me peace of mind.

    A Baby Step Adoption is amazing. They found me a babysitter for my children when I had my emergency c-section last month. They helped me find a safe apartment. I am so grateful and I would never work with any other agency.

    Twenty-two years ago I placed my baby for adoption with your agency. Linda and Barbara have been wonderful. They recently helped me locate my son and now we are texting every day.
