How to Create a Last Minute Adoption Plan When You’re at the Hospital having Your Baby 

You thought becoming a parent was what you wanted. That you were able to raise a child and provide him or her with the best life. Yet, now you’re in the hospital and reality has set in. What’s worse, you have no time to plan or prepare anymore. You are in labor. What can you do?

If you find yourself in a situation similar to this, know that you are not alone. Adoption is still an option for you — even in the midst of giving birth. While this might seem too good to be true, it’s a very real option. All you need to do is tell your nurse that you want to choose adoption for your child, and she will get in contact with a local adoption agency, like Adoption Choices of Arizona. From there, an adoption caseworker will arrive at the hospital and help you create a last minute adoption plan for you and your baby. Your adoption process will be the same as if you had planned to choose all along, although you may find that things are a bit more expedited. But, you will still be able to have control over what happens, pick the adoptive family you want to raise your child and select the type of adoption you want — semi-open, open, or closed adoption. 

  • Forming a Good Adoption Plan

The moment you decide that adoption is the best option for you and your baby, our adoption agency will help you in any way we can. We are able to handle tight situations, so if you want to create a last minute adoption plan, we can do that for you.  We will assess your situation and assign you an adoption caseworker who will be able to manage your case well and within the schedule. 

Your adoption caseworker will work with you regarding your birth plans and your ideas about what type of adoptive family you want for your child. There is no discrimination during the adoption process, so all options are open for you. Even if the timeline seems too tight, we will help you create an adoption plan that fits your needs and ensures that your child is placed with a loving and caring adoptive family. If needed, you can also receive financial assistance through our adoption agency, which can help you cover medical costs and court-approved living expenses

  • Choosing an Adoptive Family 

There will be options for transracial adoption. You can choose an LGBTQ+ family, single-parent households and many more families. Adoption Choices of Arizona wants your child to go to a good adoptive family, and we want to make sure that you feel secure in your choices. When choosing an adoptive family, we also want to make sure that you do not feel as though we are rushing you into anything. A tight schedule does not mean that there is no time to choose. You have all the time you need to decide who you feel would be the best fit for your child.

Many prospective adoptive parents want to build families, so there are many options available. A family who caters to your needs will surely be out there, and your adoption caseworker will guide you through the adoption process, so that you feel informed in your choice, and you can know that your child will grow up in a loving environment. 

  • Last Minute Adoption Planning

It might seem strange to see the words ‘last minute’ next to ‘planning,’ but Adoption Choices of Arizona has trained professionals who will be able to help you create a last minute adoption plan without bothering you with paperwork, which is handled by your adoption caseworker. 

Also, aside from your adoption caseworker, you will have an adoption team who will be managing your case to ensure that the best solution will be found. Even though your adoption plan is last minute, it is still in your hands. You do not need to feel rushed or pressured. We will work with you, and everything will work out just as it’s supposed to..

The Last Minute Adoption Support Process

As the adoption will be last minute, you will be able to rely on the support of others as you are likely to be stressed out during this time. Our counselors will be there to support you through the adoption process, and allow you to navigate your emotions, thoughts and feelings about your decision. We will take care of you and your child, and make sure that there is a calm environment around you.
