What is Private Adoption?
Private adoption is when a birth parent voluntarily places a child for adoption. Often a woman or couple is facing an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy and instead of choosing to parent the child or terminate the pregnancy, they work with an adoption agency, create an adoption plan, and choose an adoptive family. Whereas with public adoption, the state takes custody of the child and the birth parents have no choice in where the child is placed in the foster system.

By creating a step-by-step adoption plan, you will eliminate the extra stress an unplanned pregnancy can bring. In as little as five steps, Adoption Choices of Kansas and Missouri is here to show you how to create your adoption plan.

Step #1: Contact a Professional for Help
First, you should be encouraged to contact one of our outstanding birth mother specialists at Adoption Choices of Kansas and Missouri . We will work with you one-on-one to create an adoption plan that will best fit your desire to give your child a chance to live a better life.
We know you will be going through an emotional process. We have an experienced and caring support staff on hand to be there for you whenever you need them — day or night. We will give you counseling and support to help you choose your adoption plan. Be assured, you can contact us at any time before, during and after your adoption process to help you through every phase.
Step #2: Coming to an Understanding of what is Best for Your Child
Going through this process can be difficult at times. Your adoption caseworker and legal representatives at Adoption Choices of Kansas and Missouri will both help you navigate through your adoption process. We will work hard to help you map out an adoption plan, all the while making sure to keep your child’s best interest at heart.
Remember, you want to provide the best life for your baby. We will supply you with various prospective family profiles to choose from, all of whom will be suitable matches to raise your child. Our legal team is also here to help make your adoption process a smooth one.
Step #3: Choosing the Adoption Type You want
When you and your child’s new adoptive family meet one another for the first time, you will be able to choose whether you want to pursue an open, semi-open or closed adoption with them, and your child.
- Choosing to pursue an open adoption allows you to have full communication with both your child and their adoptive parents. An open adoption will allow you to continue your special relationship with your child. You will be able to see, speak and connect with them across numerous virtual platforms.
- If you choose to move forward with a semi-open adoption, you can have indirect communication with them through our secure, confidential and online resource called ChildConnect. This will allow you and your child, and your child’s adoptive family to grow closer with one another during this emotional time.
- If you want to pursue a closed adoption with your baby, then you will not have any communication whatsoever with your child or their adoptive family.
Once you have chosen the adoption type you want to pursue, whether it be an open or semi-open adoption, you and your child’s adoptive parents will determine how much communication will be allowed between you all, how you can contact them and how you will still be able to be a part of your child’s life.
By working this all out, you and your child’s adoptive parents will be able to create the best life and adoption plan that will provide the best outcome for everyone involved. This will also allow trust to be established between all parties in the process too. You will know that you made the best decision for your child because he or she will grow up with a loving, caring adoptive family who will love and support them for the rest of their life.
Step #4: Selecting the Best Birth Plan
When you are about to give birth to your baby, you are going through an incredibly emotional time in your life. You will not have to go through this alone. You will be able to choose whether you want your child’s adoptive family to be present or separate, the baby’s birth father, or your adoption counselor.
Any one can be beside you to witness the baby’s birth or be in a separate part of the hospital until he or she is born. After your child’s birth, you will need to decide what the next best option will be for all parties involved.
Step #5: Seeking Post Placement Counseling
We realize the adoption process is an emotional one. Our team is here for you! Your caseworker will continue to provide you with love, care and emotional support. Your birth mother counselor will continue to provide unlimited, free counseling sessions for you to attend to feel better as well.
Remember, we will be here for you always! You and your baby are our top priorities, and we will provide you with any other essential resources you will need throughout your process.
