As a Florida adoption attorney handling adoptions for over 22 years, our law firm gets lots of questions from women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. However, one of the more common questions that we get is, “If I did drugs during my pregnancy, can I still give my baby up for adoption in Florida?” We’ll explain the implications of drug use further, but you should know the answer is: Yes. If you have done drugs during your pregnancy, a Florida adoption plan is still an option for you and your child.
While it’s always best for a baby to be born without drug exposure, we know and understand that it’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.
