What is an Adoption Plan?

The term adoption plan can sound intense. It is basically a birth mother’s game plan for their pregnancy. You are already stressed out enough and already have a lot on your plate considering pregnant adoption help, so let us help you get ahead of the adoption process. An adoption plan is meant to plan out every step along the way of the adoption process and to ensure that you do not have to do everything all at once right before your child is born. After you reach out to us and we set you up with an adoption counselor, they will help go over all your options and begin creating an adoption plan for you. 

You are in charge of every piece of your adoption plan . Every little decision is made by you. Things that should be included in your adoption plan are your preferences for an adoptive family, your hospital plan, and the post-placement agreement. Be sure to think about who you want your child to be placed with and how you want them to grow up. Also, think about your own future and if you want to be involved in their life or not. As for your hospital plan, that is an entirely separate template where you want to think about the atmosphere you want and to prepare for yourself on your type of delivery. However, what you included is up to you at the end of the day. Every birth mother is different, and each adoption plan should be unique. Create an adoption plan that best fits your wants and needs. 

Adoption Plan Basics with Licensed Adoption Agency

When it comes to creating your adoption plan, you will want to be thinking about the qualities you want in your adoptive family. You will also have to think about the amount of contact you want between you and your child. With your adoptive family, you need to be thinking about religion, location, race, and relationship status. 

  • Do you want your child to be a part of a religious or non-religious household?
  • How close do you want to be to the adoptive family? 
  • Do you want the adoptive family to be of the same race as your baby?
  • Do you prefer the adoptive family to be single or married? 

After you finally sit down and find a few prospective adoptive families, you will be able to meet with them if that is what you would like. This is the interview stage of the adoption process, and it is crucial. Prepare a list of your own questions to understand better who the adoptive family is and how they align with your values and your future.
