Formulating Your Adoption Plan – should you choose to pursue an adoption, our staff will help you develop the adoption plan that works for you.
We’ll help you plan for the rest of your pregnancy. Do you need help obtaining quality, compassionate medical care? Would ongoing counseling be helpful to you? Are you in need of transportation to your medical appointments? Are you safe, do you need assistance with housing, maternity clothing or living expenses?
Your hospital stay and the birth and delivery of your child – How do you want your hospital stay to go? What do you want to happen while you are in labor? Do you want epidural pain medication or do you want a natural birth? Who would you like with you? Would you like the services of a Doula, a birthing assistant? Would you like the family you choose to be at the hospital while you’re in labor or after you deliver? What can we do to help you?
Selecting Your Adoptive Family and Type of Adoption You Want – We encourage you to think about what, if any, openness you would like to have with the adoptive family. What type of contact would you like to have with the family? Do you want ongoing contact? Do you want to stay in touch by phone or email? Would you like to receive pictures and updates about your child? Is the opportunity to visit with your child in the future important to you? Would you be willing to write your child a letter or a journal they can read when they’re older? Is your privacy important to you? Would you prefer not to meet the family? Would you like to meet them while you are still pregnant? This is all important information to share with us, so we can help you have the adoption plan that you want. The choices are yours.
The Adoption Social Workers and Case Managers at The Adoption Law Office of Madonna Finney invite you to have as much input as you would like into the selection of the family to adopt your baby. We will explore with you what you’re looking for in an adoptive family, what is important to you. Perhaps religion is important, or a two-parent home, siblings already in the home or no other children. We’ll work closely with you to find families to meet your needs and if you want to select the family, we will send you profiles of families for you to review. Your welcome to communicate or meet them if you’d like.
All of our waiting families have been screened and have passed rigorous pre-adoption homestudies.
After placement of your baby you’re eligible for counseling and our birth mother support group. Adoption is a journey you don’t have to travel through alone.
You can contact us at any time, if you just discovered you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy or even if you’ve already given birth. It’s never too late to make an adoption plan. You can call or text us 24/7 at (850) 308-1836. Your call is confidential and without costs. We welcome the opportunity to answer your questions.
