The Adoption Process For Pregnant Women

What is the adoption process for pregnant women?

Adoption is the act or process of placing a child to be adopted.

Adoption is a good option if you do not have the means (financially, emotionally, physically, etc.) to parent a child. 6.7 million women, who range from ages 15-44, have an impaired ability to get pregnant or carry a baby to term, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

These women and other families with the passion to adopt, have the means and the love to welcome a child into their home.

Each state has different adoption laws but the process is usually the same. Consider contacting an adoption coordinator who can help answer your questions.

 

Adopt Connect’s Process:

  1. First, we ask for some background information from you. Ex: Your due date, proof of pregnancy, some medical history, what type of adoption you would like, and family preferences.

This also includes information about the birth father. Here are some helpful resources if you are unsure how to let the birth father know or do know know who the birth father is:

  1. After, we collect profiles matching your preferences and send them to you. You can take as much time as you need when looking through these family profiles. We ask you to pick your top 3 families you feel like you have a connection with.
  2. We set up a conference call with you and each family you have picked if you are willing. This gives you a chance to really make a connection, get a feel to see if it is a right fit, and if you are comfortable with the family. This is the perfect opportunity to ask questions like what kind of parents are you going to be? How will you handle certain situations as a family? What are your parenting beliefs?
  3. Once you are 100 % sure and comfortable with the family you choose, you are considered matched!
  4. From this point we connect you with the right services you need and financial assistance with be available if you need it.

This is OUR process and might vary depending on the adoption professional you decide to work with.

There are many pros and cons to adoption. It is up to you to decide if the pros outweigh the cons and if you are capable of being okay with your decision. To help you, make a list of your own pros and cons.
