As a Florida adoption attorney with over 22 years of experience, our law firm gets lots of questions from women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. One topic that comes up more frequently than others is drug use during pregnancy.
“If there was drug use during my pregnancy, can I still give my baby up for adoption in Florida?”
The answer is yes. Even if there’s been some drug use during your pregnancy, a Florida adoption plan is still an option for you and your child. The issue of drug use during pregnancy is actually quite prevalent. While it’s always best for a baby to be born without drug exposure, we know that’s not always possible. Hopeful adoptive parents understand that too. In fact, there are many wonderful hopeful adoptive families who are open to adopting children in these situations. These families have been approved to adopt children exposed to drugs during pregnancy, and truly understand the needs that child may have both as an infant and in the future. They can provide him or her with a wonderful home and the love and nurturing that the baby needs to grow and thrive. Learn more about the effects of drug use during pregnancy at Mother To Baby.
