Just the other day, I received a text message from a young lady saying, “Im thinking about giving baby up for adoption. Ive been looking for adoption agencies in florida. Can U help? I don’t kno where else to turn.”
I won’t say I get these messages every day, but they’re not uncommon. Everyone knows that adoption exists, but so rarely do they consider it as an option for their unplanned pregnancy. Oftentimes, the reason they don’t even consider adoption is because they don’t know who to talk to or how to begin the process.
I have worked with many birth moms over the years, and they’ve shared with me countless times how hesitant they were to even make that first call to our firm. So many of them wish they had done it earlier and avoided all that worry and fear.
When you call our office, you will have the opportunity to speak with someone that really understands what you are going through. Our licensed social worker will take you through the steps of creating an adoption plan. They explain the process, show how you can choose an adoptive familyand provide you with resources that can assist you both before and after you deliver the baby.
Each situation is different and requires different types of help and support. We do our best to identify your needs and immediately start the process of meeting those needs. Perhaps you need help with transportation getting to your medical appointments or to meet with us. Perhaps you are considering giving your baby up for adoption due to your financial situation and are in need of help with living expenses. Under the law, there are specific things we can help you with and we will discuss those with you.
