Whenever an expectant mom is considering “putting her baby up for adoption in Florida,” it’s important to try to really understand the adoption process. It’s also important to seek out some form of pregnancy counseling. This will ensure that she fully understands all of her pregnancy options before moving forward with adoption.
If you need someone to speak with, the adoption social workers and case managers at The Law Office of Madonna Finney are always available. They can answer any questions you might have and provide you information about the adoption process, so you can make the best decisions for you and your child. These conversations are non-binding, confidential and available to you without cost.
The Adoption Process, Simplified
There are many steps to placing a child for adoption. However, we wanted to simplify how the adoption process begins so that you could at least begin visualizing what the process may look like for you. Below are the first three steps a woman may take when deciding to make an adoption plan for her baby.
Find the Right Adoption Professional
The first step you’ll take in this journey will be to find the right adoption professional in Florida to guide you through the adoption process. The right adoption professional will help you prepare and make the adoption plan that works for you. They’ll stick with you throughout your pregnancy and delivery, and even after placement to help coordinate post-adoption counseling and a birth mother support group.
Creating Your Adoption Plan
Once you find the right adoption professional, their staff will help you develop an adoption plan that works for you. This plan may include things like: the events of hospital stay, who you’d like to have in the delivery room, and how much contact you’d like to have with an adoptive family. They’ll also help you obtain any birth mother assistance you might need during and after your pregnancy. For example, this may include quality medical care and counseling, or help with expenses like housing, maternity clothing, etc.
Choosing The Right Adoptive Family
After formulating your adoption plan, you’ll be able to choose an adoptive family in which to place your child. The adoption entity you choose to guide you through the adoption process will work closely with you to find families to meet your preferences. With our law firm, if you want to choose the family yourself, we will send you profiles of adoptive families for you to review. We also encourage expectant mothers to communicate with the families or even meet them, if you’re interested in doing so. However, if you’d prefer not to have any input on the selection or not to meet the family, that’s fine too. We would simply select the family that meets the majority of the criteria that you set forth.
