Choosing Adoption After Your Baby is Born
If you are still unsure about whether choosing adoption after your baby is bornis still right for you, consider asking for assistance from our professionals at Adoption Choices of Kansas and Missouri. We will walk you through the process, answer any questions you have, and address all of your concerns. Here are a few reasons why you might choose adoption:
Reason #1: Hope for a Better Future
An unplanned pregnancy can come as quite a shock and seem to flip your life upside down. There is a lot to think about in a short time. Do you want to parent your baby? Are you ready to raise him or her? Is it the right time to have a family? Perhaps you’ve always wanted a baby and thought you could handle parenthood. But then, after your baby is born, you change your mind. Don’t worry. There is still hope and options available. If you want to place your baby for adoption after he or she is born, that is ok. We will walk you through the process and support you every step of the way.
At Adoption Choices of Kansas and Missouri, the process is simple for the birth mother to follow. First, you will contact our agency to set up an appointment. Then, an adoption caseworker will get into contact with you and help you create an adoption plan. Once this has been established, your adoption caseworker will email you adoptive parent profile books so that you can select who you feel best fits the life you want for your child.
It is never too late to choose adoption and to give your baby the life you are unable to provide for them. As for the birth mother, you have full control over the adoption process. You can choose your child’s adoptive parents and grant him or her the chance at a better future.
Reason #2: You Can Continue To Live Your Life
Maybe you are just about to graduate high school or college. Perhaps you were just promoted in your career. Or, maybe you are already raising other children. In all of these scenarios, adding in a child who came as a surprise can feel overwhelming. You don’t know how an extra mouth to feed will work. Having a family or another child isn’t in the cards for you right now. No matter what your situation, adoption is always an option. There are three levels of openness that you can choose from — open, semi-open and closed — that can allow you to continue with your life and give you the option to be involved or not in your child’s life after the adoption is finalized. Be sure to consult your adoption caseworker to get all the necessary details on this.
You will be able to ensure your child will live within a stable environment after choosing the right plan for you. You want a loving, caring environment for your child, and want them to live a happy life. So in order for that to happen, you will choose the plan that will be most suitable for you, and will be the most ideal for your baby.
Reason #3: More Family to Love Your Child
You may wonder if your child will ever feel unwanted or unloved after you place him or her for adoption. This is a natural and common fear among many birth mothers. After all, you want the best for your child. You want them to be raised in a happy, healthy and loving environment. In order to make this happen, choosing adoption after the baby is born will be the best decision you can make for your child.
Adoption does just that.
It gives your baby more family to love, care and nurture them. It also provides you with a strong, healthy relationship with the adoptive parents, depending on the type of adoption you chose. Throughout your adoption journey, it’s important that you get to know your child’s adoptive parent(s) as much as possible. This will help bring you comfort as the finalization day comes closer, and will assure you that you’ve chosen the right family for your baby.
