Facing an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy is often quite difficult. You may find yourself wondering, “Am I ready to parent?” or “Do I even want to be a parent, right now?” That’s okay. That’s common. And if you feel that way right now, it’s important that you take some time to review and understand all of your pregnancy options – including parenting, abortion, and adoption. If you need help considering and understanding these options, you can always reach out to the Law Office of Madonna Finney. You don’t have to do this alone, and if you choose to place your baby for adoption in Florida, birth mother assistance will be available to you.
The Adoption Process
If you do choose to make an adoption plan, then you would work with us (or another adoption attorney or adoption agency in Florida) to create an adoption plan. This is an overview of everything you want for your baby’s future – including things like the type of adoptive family, how you’d like the hospital stay to go, and the amount of contact you’d like to have post-adoption. After you’ve completed your adoption plan, you’d then begin to review information about prospective adoptive families and be eligible to receive assistance with “reasonable living expenses,” in accordance with Florida State Law.
Florida Birth Mother Assistance May Include…
- Reasonable Living expenses such as rent, utilities, food, toiletries, etc.
- Mobile phone and service
- Maternity clothing
- Medical care and Counseling + Medications
Adoption is always an option, but it’s not the right decision for everyone. However, if you can’t imagine having an abortion, or if you want to give your child life, but you know you aren’t ready to parent, maybe you should consider the loving option of adoption.
It does not cost you any money to place your child for adoption. Instead, you would be supported all along the way and be eligible to receive needed assistance. This helps relieve the stress of pregnancy and provides a certain peace of mind that everything is being taken care of for both you and your baby.
Placing your baby for adoption also ensures they are placed in a loving, financially secure home. The adoptive family is pre-screened, home-study approved and chosen by you, if you’d like. Your relationship with them, and how much you want to be involved in the child’s life, is also up to you. This is your story, and you’re the one writing it.
For many, adoption is not the end. It is the beginning of a new chapter in life, one the mother is able to grow and pursue her dreams (college, career, relationships, etc…) while staying in contact and watching her child thrive through open adoption.
If you find yourself wondering if adoption is right for you, any adoption attorney or adoption agency in Florida can help you better understand the process. But if you want to work with a team of experienced adoption professionals, then contact the Adoption Law Offices of Madonna Finney today. We truly care about the women who come to us. We are here for them 24/7, 365 days a year. We’ve counseled hundreds of women in the same situation as you, and can help you understand which path is right for you.
