If you’re thinking about adoption and doubting it at all, know that motherhood doesn’t look identical for everyone. Difficult seasons come in life, and you may not be ready to raise a child. That’s ok.
Whether you’re single, in a hard financial spot, or your environment is not fit for a child, adoption could be a possible alternative to parenting for you. Here is more to know about adoption and the different plans to choose from. You are not alone in your decision. Talk with our compassionate team today to learn more.
Is Adoption the Right Choice for Me?
Not ready to parent, but you’re concerned about the risks of abortion? Adoption could be a good possibility for you to explore. Choose from open, closed, or semi-open adoption, based on what kind of relationship you want with your child and the adoptive family. These days, the birth mother gets to make many of the decisions with the adoption plan.
What is Adoption Like?
You probably have a lot of preconceived ideas about adoption—but you may be surprised at how drastically adoption has changed.
Consider these three types of adoptions to determine if any are a good fit for you. Choose one that fits your needs and lifestyle. The flexibility that comes with adoption today is great for you and the future of your child. You have the power to choose what’s best for you both.
Open adoption is the most popular type of adoption. With this type of adoption, you can stay in contact with your child and adoptive family through phone calls, emails, and in-person visits. In an open adoption, both parties also share identifying information and have contact with each other during and after the adoption process.
A closed adoption may be for you if you want little to no contact with your child and the adoptive family. Closed adoption also means that identifying information remains confidential. Last names and personal contact information are not shared between the birth and adoptive parents.
If you want a mix of both open and closed adoption, consider semi-open adoption. There is still a line of communication, but usually no visitations. Each semi-open adoption plan is a little different based on what was decided at the time of placement and what works best for all parties involved.
