Adoption Information

Are you considering adoption for the outcome of your unplanned pregnancy? There are many unjustified stigmas surrounding adoption. The first thing to note is that adoption is not “giving up” your child to someone. It is giving your child the opportunity to grow and thrive in a healthy, loving environment.

Making an adoption plan means making a plan that works best for you and your child.  It can be a difficult road to take, but it is a selfless option for an unplanned pregnancy.

Types of Adoption

These days, adoption has become very beneficial for the birth mother.  You are able to make a lot of choices about how much you want to see your child and what kind of family your child will be raised in. In many cases, your medical expenses can be covered by the adopting family.  You have a lot to choose from in making such a decision.

Additionally, there are several types of adoption paths you can take, depending on your unique situation.The first is an open adoption, which allows you to share information about yourself with potential adoptive families and receive information about them as well. You can use this information to make a final decision on the home you’d like your child to go to. This option also allows you to have regular contact with your child after the adoption process is complete. You can still stay in your child’s life if you choose.

The other type of adoption is a closed adoption. While this option is less common, it is still valid for many women’s situations. In a closed adoption, your information will stay private and you will not receive any information about the adoptive family as well. This is to protect your privacy and the adoptive family’s privacy. After the adoption is complete, you will not have contact with your child or the family.

You can also choose whether you’d like to go through an adoption agency or work directly with a lawyer. All of these options can be discussed during an appointment with Azar House. There are many facets to the adoption process, so it’s important that you educate yourself before making a final decision.
