I’m Pregnant Again: Can I Place My Second Baby with the Same Agency?
Having an unplanned pregnancy can be intimidating and if you’re reading this post, chances are you are feeling a similar way. Not one — but two unplanned pregnancies can be double stressful and just overwhelming. Though you might be scared to go through the adoption process again, Adoption Choices of Arizona is here to help!
There are birth mothers who get pregnant more than once, and choose to place their baby for adoption each time. More than you realize! And it’s perfectly okay! It is possible that if you become unexpectedly pregnant a second time and even a third or fourth time, you can place your baby with the same adoption agency in Arizona.
I’m Pregnant Again. Help!
Discovering that you’re pregnant again can bring a whole slew of different feelings. Confusion, grief, guilt, shame, and even betrayal. You already had an unwanted pregnancy, why do you have to go through it again? All these emotions and feelings are perfectly natural and you shouldn’t feel ashamed.
Some birth mothers who have a second unplanned pregnancy are often in the same position they were in with their first pregnancy. This can be scary, but you’ve pulled through it before and you can do it again! Now that you’ve already experienced placing your baby for adoption once, the second time might not be as scary. The first thing you should do is see your doctor to confirm the health of both yourself and your baby.
Placing A Second Baby for Adoption with Same Agency
Multiple unplanned pregnancies happen, and you are not the first birth mother to find yourself in this situation. Multiple placements is not as uncommon as you might think. Many birth mothers find themselves having a repeat unplanned pregnancy. These women question if they can place their baby with the same adoption agency they used with their first child. The answer — yes! Yes, you can!
Our adoption specialists will more than gladly work with you to place your second baby for adoption. It is our mission to assist you to our full extent, even if we’ve worked with you before. Adoption Choices of Arizona is a safe place for birth mothers to come for help without receiving any judgement or shame.
Creating Your Second Adoption Plan in Arizona
Your process of adoption will be very much the same as with your first baby’s adoption. Your adoption specialist will assist you in creating an adoption plan that matches your current situation, needs and wants. It’s important to discuss with your adoption specialist any changes that have happened since your first pregnancy, such as health issues, financial assistance, housing, counseling, and more.
You also have the option to change the type of adoption. For example, if you chose a closed adoption with your first child, you have the ability and option to have an open adoption with your second child. The idea of going through another pregnancy and adoption process may sound daunting and scary, but you’re strong! You’ve gone through the adoption process in Arizona once before, and we’ll help you get through it again.
Although we can’t make any promises, it’s possible that your first child’s adoptive family may be open to adopting your second child. It’s only natural that you want your children to be together, but sometimes it doesn’t work out that way. If your first child’s adoptive family can’t or won’t adopt your second child, there are still ways for the siblings to have contact and know of each other.
