If you are considering making an adoption plan, learn about all your options to figure out what is best for you. Placing a child for adoption is a huge sacrifice and takes courage and so much love. Sorting through the options of adoption, abortion, or parenting can be overwhelming, but you are not alone.
Here are some things you need to know if you are considering making an adoption plan.
- Placing a Baby for Adoption is Different for Everyone.
There are lots of different adoption stories but your story will be unique to you and your baby. This is YOUR placement, YOUR journey, and YOUR decision. You will have the chance to create your own story that is only yours.
- Adoption is Your Choice.
Don’t let anyone pressure you into anything that you don’t feel comfortable with. If you don’t agree with your adoptive family or social worker, communicate your feelings and make sure it’s something you want. If you don’t feel comfortable communicating with your adoptive family, your social worker will be the mediator and will take care of your concerns.
- You Have Individual Rights.
Adoption is a legal matter. We believe in adoptions that are strong, safe, and transparent for all parties involved. You may be wondering if you can make an adoption plan without the father’s consent, have questions if you are a minor, or need information about state adoption laws in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
We can help connect you with an adoption agency or adoption attorney who are experts in the laws of the states that they are working with. They should help you understand your rights, the rights of the other parent, time-frames of when things can be done, and the finality of your decision.
Make an appointment today to speak to someone about adoption and all your pregnancy options. We will never pressure you or tell you what you should do but instead, give you the resources you need to decide what’s best for you.
Remember, do not let others make your decisions for you. This is YOUR baby and YOUR choice.
