Why should I Consider Adoption in the First Place?

One of the most frequently asked questions when making an adoption plan in Arizona is why a birth mother would choose to have an adoption for her and her child to begin with. This is a very personal question. You may have lots of reasons why you decide to work with Adoption Choices of Arizona to find an adoptive family for your child. For some birth mothers, an unplanned pregnancy can come at a bad point in life, interrupting plans for education or career aspirations. Other birth mothers might find themselves in a harmful environment with homelessness or economic hardship that wouldn’t be conducive to raising a child. 

No matter your reason, adoption provides an avenue for you to ensure your baby is taken care of, alleviating emotional stress and providing your child with a bright future.

What goes into an Adoption Plan?

Obviously, one of the most important and frequently asked questions when making an adoption plan in Arizona is what an adoption plan entails. At Adoption Choices of Arizona, one of the most important ideals we hold is the creation of a personalized adoption plan that suits every birth mother’s unique needs — including yours. When creating an adoption plan, you will cover some of your basic “wants” for the adoption process, such as the type of adoption you want and the expectations you may have for an adoptive family. Your adoption plan is a list of things you want out of your adoption experience.

What Type of Adoption should I have in My Adoption Plan?

There are typically three types of adoption available to you: open, semi-open, or closed. An open adoption process is one where you will choose the adoptive family and have access and communication to them and your child after the adoption process is finalized, while a closed adoption is the opposite and all communication between you and the adoptive family is nonexistent. Semi-open adoption is in the middle of the two, offering a limited amount of communication during the adoption process and after the adoption is finalized. It is important to decide which type of adoption you think is best for you when creating an adoption plan that addresses your needs and concerns.

Will I get to Choose an Adoptive Family in My Adoption Plan?

Yes! Adoption Choices of Arizona will work with you if you decide that you would like to choose an adoptive family for your child. You can include things you are looking for in an adoptive family within your adoption plan, and we will do our best to find adoptive parent profiles for you to view that showcase families who align with your adoption plan. While picking an adoptive family from the get-go isn’t technically a part of the adoption plan, you will take several steps towards finding one by laying out what you’d like in your adoption plan at the beginning of your adoption process.

Will My Hospital Stay be Part of My Adoption Plan?

Of course! You can provide us with what you’d like to happen once you arrive at the hospital. There is a lot of overlap with an adoption plan and a birth plan when it comes to this subject, and you can certainly cover a range of medical desires in your adoption plan. This can include things like who you want to be present before, during, and after childbirth, as well as how much time you want to spend with your child after delivery.
