How Does an Arizona Adoption Agency Help With My Adoption Plan?
Unplanned pregnancy can be a scary thing to deal with. Many women find themselves pregnant at a time in their life that is inconvenient, and they struggle to figure out what to do. If you are in this situation right now, adoption might be a choice you want to consider. Through the adoption process, you are able to provide for your child even though they give them to different parents. The act of giving up your child for adoption takes a lot of humility and love and is something that should be respected and celebrated. If you want to begin the adoption process but are unsure how to begin, Adoption Choices of Arizona is here to help. Choosing an adoption agency in Arizona like ours will supply you with the resources you need to complete your adoption plan and provide you with support along the way. Here are the ways that Adoption Choices of Arizona can assist you as you create your adoption plan.
What is an Adoption Plan?
Adoption Choices of Arizona requires all birth mothers to complete an adoption plan. This adoption plan will set up the framework of your adoption, and through this plan, you will make many important decisions that will affect your child’s future. Your first step in the adoption plan will be to figure out what type of adoption you would like to pursue. There are three main types of adoption:
- Open Adoption: In an open adoption, you will choose the parents that your child will be placed with. Additionally, you will be able to stay involved in your child’s life even after they are placed with their adoptive parents. In open adoptions, many birth mothers are able to maintain fairly extensive communication with their child as they grow up. This communication often includes in-person visits. If you desire to stay very involved in your child’s life after they are born, open adoption is the best choice for you.
- Semi-Open Adoption: In a semi-open adoption, you will still choose the adoptive parents for your child, but you won’t communicate with them as much as they grow up. It is normal for birth mothers to call, email, and send letters to their child as they grow up in a semi-open adoption, but there is less of a chance of you meeting up with your child in person.
- Closed Adoption: In a closed adoption, you won’t be able to choose the adoptive parents for your child, and you also won’t be able to communicate with them at all after they are born. This is ideal for birth mothers who want to move on after the adoption process is complete, but it isn’t easy to maintain due to technology and other modern developments.
After you choose the type of adoption, if you choose an open or semi-open adoption, you will choose the adoptive parents for your child. You will be given the profiles of a few different sets of agency-approved adoptive parents. From these profiles, you will decide which set of parents will be the best fit for your child. After you choose the adoptive parents, you will be able to meet with them in person to confirm your choice and start to get to know them.
Your final steps in the adoption plan will be to determine details surrounding the actual birth of your child. You will figure out what hospital you will give birth at and decide who will be with you during labor. Additionally, you may want to decide what type of birth you want to have.
