How to Involve Your Family in Your Adoption Plan During Your Unplanned Pregnancy
It may be surprising to hear that most pregnancies today are unintended. If you are a birthmother with an unplanned pregnancy, we will help you through the adoption process. Here at Adoption Choices of Arizona, we want what’s best for you and your child. We provide you with information about potential adoptive families and help you decide the appropriate Arizona adoption plan for you.
My Friends and Family are Being Unsupportive
There are some families that may be very traditional and old-fashioned, who don’t completely support giving a child up for adoption. This is due to the fact that previously adoption was seen as something shameful, and people would assume that the child is given up was not worthy of being taken care of. Now that times have been involved and the welfare of the child is prioritized, things have changed. Adoption should not be something shameful but rather something that should be encouraged.
Your mental health and stability is one of our most important concerns. Here at Adoption Choices of Arizona, we have counselors that you can talk to. If you are worried about finances, we are also here to help with that. We are a non-profit organization meaning that we will be helping you free of charge and can also provide you with the financial support you need throughout the way. Additionally, we provide other adoption services like transportation to and from your counseling or health care appointments.
How to Give Up a Baby for Adoption
Once you decide that you want to give your baby up for adoption, we can begin with the process. We will help you choose the appropriate adoption plan for you and make sure you are comfortable with the adoptive family you choose. You can find information about our adoptive families on our website.
It is important to do your research before choosing an adoption plan. This helps make sure everything goes according to plan, and you won’t regret your decision. We provide an adoption checklist for you at the beginning of the Arizona adoption process to guide you through what should be done to ensure a successful adoption process.
How to Involve My Family in the Adoption Process?
Suppose you want to keep your family involved in the adoption process. We can provide them with disclosure of the process, and they can assist you with your choices along the way. The birth father may also play an important role in this process, and we can involve him as well. Remember, our main priority is the birth mother, so you have full control over who you would like to be involved in the process and the amount of information you would like to provide them.
There are some birth mothers who also decide to give their baby up for adoption to one of their family members. This is the case if the birth mothers want someone they are sure they can trust and will be able to take care of their child. This is also a great option if you want to have an open adoption. This will make sure that you will be able to contact your child when you wish to.

Am I Making the Right Choice?
