Things to Consider when Creating Your Adoption Plan as a Birth Mother

That’s why all of us here at Adoption Choices of Arizona work tirelessly to provide you and all birth mothers with the resources you need to be successful, and the information you need to make good decisions about your future, as well as your child’s.
One of the most important services we provide to birth mothers is the creation of a personalized adoption plan. At our adoption agency, we recognize that every situation is different, and circumstances are constantly changing. Having a personalized adoption plan that is crafted to fit your situation, your circumstances, and your needs is the most important service we can provide. When you decide to begin laying out your adoption journey with us, it can be difficult to understand everything that is involved in the process, so here are just a few of the things to consider when creating your adoption plan.
The Timing of Your Adoption
One simple thing you should consider in your adoption plan is when you’ll start. The earlier you start the adoption process, the more time you’ll have to work out the specifics with your adoption caseworker at Adoption Choices of Arizona. Starting early in your pregnancy will give you ample time to create your plan while allowing us more time to get you situated and taken care of.
This is especially important if you find yourself in a dangerous situation like homelessness. The sooner you come to us, the sooner we can help you find the resources you need to continue with a safe and secure pregnancy. This is the one of the simplest things to consider when creating your adoption plan, so don’t skip out on it. Contact Adoption Choices of Arizona today to get started.
Deciding the Type of Adoption You Want
One of the most common questions we handle from birth mothers is whether open, semi-open or closed adoption is right for them. Open adoption has been steadily gaining in popularity in the adoption world, but some birth mothers might find semi-open and closed adoptions to be more favorable, depending on the circumstances. As a birth mother, something you should think about when working with our adoption agency to create an adoption plan is how involved you want to be with your child in the future.
If you are deciding between the types of adoption, there are a few key factors that differentiate each type from one another. In short:
- An open adoption means you will choose your child’s adoptive family and maintain a relationship with them.
- A semi-open adoption means you will choose your child’s adoptive family, but have minimal contact with the family, ending once your child is placed with them.
- A closed adoption means you will have a total lack of communication with the adoptive family.
When considering whether you want an open adoption, a semi-open adoption, or a closed adoption, think about what you want for your child’s future, as well as the bond you hope to share with them. The decision is always yours to make, and Adoption Choices of Arizona wants to do whatever we can to help you make it.
Choosing an Adoptive Family
Another one of your very important things to consider when creating your adoption plan is who will raise your child. Think about what is important to you as a birth mother, such as your principles and values. When Adoption Choices of Arizona provides you with adoptive parent profiles, you will have a chance to look through lots of information all about an adoptive family, including what they want for your child in the future.
This choice is entirely up to you, and finding the best adoptive family isn’t always easy, but we are dedicated to helping you find the right home for your child, no matter how many adoptive families you want to see.
