Who will help me create an adoption plan in Arizona?

By Blessing E. Ikhimokpa

Looking for someone to help you create an adoption plan? Look no further. You’ll need an adoption agency of choice first when creating an adoption plan. At our agency, Adoption Choices of Arizona, we specialize in pregnant mom and birth family adoption services. Since you’re looking for someone to help create an adoption plan in Arizona. Our counselors are the ones who will help you. 

What does it mean to have an adoption plan?

When birth mothers have unplanned pregnancies and plan to place their child up for adoption, they need an adoption plan, a step-by-step guide to the adoption process. It goes over what needs to be done before you can consider adoption. As this is a first for most birth mothers, our agency has counselors. That will be there every step of the way.  

What does an adoption plan look like in Arizona?

As this is an unplanned pregnancy. You’re not completely prepared. This means you’ll need an adoption plan. When creating an adoption plan, you’ll need to:

  1. Look for an adoption agency in your area
  2. Find out about the different adoption options
  3. Pick the adoptive family of choice
  4. Plan out the birth/hospital plan

What needs to be done before I can start an adoption plan?

When creating your adoption plan, you’ll need to plan out every step of the way before you think of putting a child up for adoption. You’ll first need to look for an adoption agency in your area. Search for adoption agencies in Arizona. So, you can find some in your area. Depending on where in Arizona you’re located. Will determine which adoption agency you go to. 

What are the different adoption options to choose from? 

After we have informed you about what an adoption plan is and what you’ll need before starting. You’ll need to pick a pregnant adoption option. There are three to choose from. Depending on what type of life you have planned out regarding the birth child. Will determine which adoption option you choose from. 

Suppose you’re thinking of still being in your child’s life. Then we suggest choosing open adoption. Both you and the adoptive parents will help raise the birth child. In this option, there will be communication on both sides. If having full communication with the adoptive parent (s) isn’t something you’d want. Try the semi-open adoption. This is like an open adoption. But instead of having full communication with the adoptive parent (s). We will do all communication through the adoption agency of choice. After looking through the first two adoption types, you’re not interested in either. Then, there’s the closed adoption. There will be no communication from either side; you won’t be involved in the adoption process if you decide. Instead, the adoption agency of choice will do everything. 

Can I choose the adoptive family regardless of the type of adoption I choose?

As a result, of the three different Pregnant adoption options, you’ll be able to choose which adoptive family the birth child will go to. It might come as a surprise to some. But although closed adoption means no communication from either side. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to choose the adoptive family once you Place the baby for adoption. This will still be done through the adoption agency, as with everything else. 

What does a birth plan look like?

After going over which type of adoption you’d like. It is now time to plan the birth/hospital plan. This plan goes over what to expect once you get to the hospital. At the hospital before you’re about to give birth. You’ll need to inform the nurse about your plans. They’ll ask you about the people you’d like in the room. You can have either the adoption agency’s counselor if you’d like. Or the adoptive family of choice. If you’d like just the counselor, the adoptive parent (s) have the option of seeing the baby after the birth.
