Are you thinking about adoption? We can assist you in navigating the process. Adoption is a legal procedure in which you give your child to another family. Adoption is a great way to give your child to a loving family if you do not think you are in the right position to be a parent. Adoption could be a fit for your situation if:
- You are still in school or are wanting to focus on your career
- The father is not going to be involved and you believe you cannot parent by yourself
- You want to ensure that your child is raised in a safe, loving environment
- Your financial situation will make it difficult to raise a child
- You are not quite ready to be a parent, but you do not want to have an abortion
Today’s adoptions allow for customization to best suit what you want. We can help find the right type of adoption for you.
Types of Adoption
Much has changed in recent decades in regards to adoption so there is much to learn when beginning to look at your options. Today’s adoption process offers a few options for you.
Open adoption involves open communication between you and the adoptive family before and after the adoption is final. You will have a chance to meet with them and exchange information. You can also maintain contact with the family and your child after birth. This is a suitable option if you want to be a part of your child’s life as he or she grows up.
A closed adoption means that you will not have direct contact with the adoptive family. All communication will take place through a third-party, such as a lawyer. Your information will be kept completely private throughout the adoption process.
A semi-open adoption is a combination of an open and closed adoption. You can still communicate with the adoptive family, but contact is limited. With this option, you can also have contact with your child after he or she is born, but, again, the contact will be limited based upon pre-determined agreements.
