Adoption Can Offer the Best of Both Worlds
Adoption allows you to complete the biological process of a pregnancy and not have to choose to parent. You get to make a choice over who becomes the parent(s) for your child. Adoption can be open, closed or in between. An unplanned pregnancy is an overwhelming event in your life, especially if it comes at a time you are not expecting it.
The feels are real and emotions are full range.
You might feel scared, unsure or overwhelmed. It’s okay.
These are all very real and normal emotions. It is important that you acknowledge, recognize, and work through them, but try not to let these feelings overwhelm you.
You Get To Make The Decisions
If you choose adoption, you get to make the decisions. What will your plan look like? There are many resources you can explore as you decide what is right.
You Have Time To Make A Final Decision
Give yourself time to make the very best decision for you. Here is the truth: You are important. You’re health is important. You are carrying someone special, someone unique, and there will never be another person just like your baby.
Adoption Allows You to Make the Choices
The adoption process allows you the opportunity, if you choose, to get to know potential adoptive parents, meet them, exchange the contact information you are comfortable providing and needing. The adoption process also provides an option for your identity to remain confidential if that is your choice. You get to chose.
These are 3 Types of Adoption To Consider:
Open Adoption: An open adoption is an opportunity for you to be actively engaged in your child’s life. This adoption choice allows you to have ongoing direct contact with the family and your child during and after the placement. You can choose to receive phone calls, pictures, letters, emails and even schedule visits with your child and his or her new family.
Semi-Open Adoption: This adoption choice allows you to select the parents for your child, without your identifying and personal information provided. You can chose to be anonymous. While first names are often shared, each party in this type of adoption enjoys privacy. You will be able to receive letters and pictures from your child’s family but your identity remains anonymous as they will be sent to you through the agency with which you choose to work.
Confidential Closed Adoption: This adoption choice is for birth-parents who would like to remain completely anonymous. The adoption agency you choose will support you throughout your pregnancy and work with you to keep your identity confidential while helping you with the information you need to select parents for your child. Your identity will be protected before, during and after the adoption is complete.
