Putting a baby up for adoption in Springfield
Pregnancy can be scary for any woman! An unplanned pregnancy can be even more terrifying. At any age, a young woman or an older woman this is a huge physical and emotional situation. If you think that adoption may be the best choice for you and your child, you may be wondering what your options are regarding the adoption.
As the birth mother, you get to make most of the major decisions about how the adoption will go. 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 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, 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.
The Type of Adoption
There are three main types of adoption that you get to choose from. Consider, you can have the adoption type as a condition to going through 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.
