Steps for Placing a Baby For Adoption
Choosing adoption is never an easy choice. However, you should always keep in mind that you are not “giving up your baby” for adoption. Instead, you are choosing adoption for them because you want them to have the best opportunities in life. If you decide to go down this path, here are the first three steps of the adoption process.
Finding the Right Adoption Professional
The first step in beginning your adoption journey will be to find the right adoption professional in Florida to guide you through the process. The right adoption professional will be with you from the beginning, helping 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 with post-adoption counseling and a birth mother support group.
Formulating Your Adoption Plan
Once you find the right adoption professional, their staff will help you develop the adoption plan that works for you. This plan may include things like: what type of hospital stay you’d like to have, 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 resources you might need during and after your pregnancy, such as quality, compassionate medical care, counseling, transportation, and assistance with housing, maternity clothing or living expenses.
Selecting Your Adoptive Family
After formulating your adoption plan, you’ll be able to choose an adoptive family in which to place your child. You will have as much input as you would like into the selection of the adoptive family. 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 adoptive families for you to review. Your welcome to communicate or meet them if you’d like.
