Why Should I Choose Adoption?
Right now, you may be worried that you are “giving up” by placing your baby for adoption. However, this is not the case. Choosing adoption means you are making sure your baby is raised in a safe and loving home. You are taking control of your own life. Still, wondering if placing your baby for adoption is right for you? It is important to stay informed and find the right adoption agencies in Arizona. Remember that even as a teenager, you have the right to be involved in every aspect of the adoption.
How Do I Put My Baby Up For Adoption?
The first step is contacting our adoption agency and meeting with one of our adoption specialists. An adoption specialist will help you create an adoption plan that best suits your needs. Our staff is experienced in creating a safe and comfortable environment during this emotional time. You will be able to choose which type of adoption you want: open, closed, or semi-closed. An open adoption is best when you want to remain in contact with the adoptive family after the adoption is finalized. A closed adoption might be best if you do not wish to have contact with the adoptive family.
Next, our adoption specialists will provide you with family profiles to select from. As the birth mother, you are making the choice of which family is best to raise your baby. Our adoption agencies in Arizona are not religiously affiliated and serve adoptive families of all backgrounds. We will support you with personalized care throughout the adoption process. Our staff is experts who can help answer any question you may have during this difficult time.
The Right to Choose Adoption as a Teenager
You may be wondering if being a teenager makes a difference in the adoption process. Fortunately, all birth mothers have the same rights regardless of age. In Arizona, you do not need an adult’s permission to place your baby for adoption. As the birth mother, you are the only person making the decisions about your baby’s future.
