Placing a baby for adoption is not giving up. You are going to find “giving baby up for adoption” across the internet and even on our website. We use this popular terminology to help women like you find our adoption agency and adoption information. We do encourage you to replace negative adoption language such as “giving up” with positive language like “placing baby for adoption” and “creating an adoption plan”.
Putting a Baby up for Adoption
An unplanned pregnancy can be really scary for a woman. Whether you are younger, older, no matter what stage of life you’re in, pregnancy is a huge physical and emotional situation. On top of it, if you think you don’t want to have nor keep a baby, adoption may be the best choice for you and the baby. We can help discuss your pregnancy and adoption options in MO!
When you work with our Missouri adoption agency, as the birth mother, you get to make most of the decisions about how your adoption will go, and you can lay those decisions out on paper in an adoption plan that Adoption Choices of Missouri can help you create. Here are a few of the pregnancy and adoption options you’ll be able to consider if you decide to place your child for adoption.
Choosing the Adoptive Family
What many people don’t realize is that adoption is never a double-blind process; in fact, in most cases the birth mother has all the control in choosing her child’s adoptive family. You will be able to tell your adoption specialist what is most important to you when it comes to who will raise your child. For example, if you desire someone with deep local roots, a similar ethnic background to yourself, or a family that shares your lifestyle or religious beliefs, these are all things you can look for in an adoptive family.
Once you have found a family you like based on their profile, you’ll have the chance to meet with them, often by speaking on the phone first and then meeting them in person. The choice of whether to move forward with them as your child’s adoptive family is all yours.

Choosing the Type of Adoption
There are three main types of adoption that you will have to choose from. While you can choose the adoption type with the adoption with a specific family, it is important that both you and the adoptive family agree to the terms on the type of adoption. You can choose an open adoption, semi-open, or closed adoption.
In modern adoption, a majority of adoptive families and birth parents prefer some level of openness. In fact, studies show that all parties, especially the adoptee experience many benefits from an open or semi-open adoption.

Additional MO Adoption Options
While those are some of the big decisions you’ll be facing when choosing to place a newborn up for adoption, there are other options you’ll have to consider as well – such as how you’d like to communicate with the adoptive family during the pregnancy and how you’d like to handle your birth plan and how you wish to handle delivery.
Thankfully, Adoption Choices of Missouri can help explain your options to you without any pressure so that you can figure out what works best for you. Having your options lined out in an adoption plan can help you feel more confident and secure in the choices you’ve made.
