What is an adoption plan?

An Arizona adoption plan is based on what you want best for yourself and your child. Make it unique so it can provide security for you when the adoption plan is in place. Everyone’s adoption plan is different. Your adoption plan will look different than somebody else’s. It’s best to plan as far in advance as possible.

How to start my adoption process?

First, contact Adoption Choices of Arizona, and we will help you with an adoption plan for you! We have many resources to choose from and help you with the process. Adoption Choices of Arizona has financial assistance and everything you need for your Arizona adoption process. We want to make you feel as comfortable as possible before deciding the best adoption plan for your child and his/her future. You have control of every step throughout the process. We will make sure everything is how you want it.

  1. Decide if adoption is right for you.

An unplanned pregnancy can be scary in the beginning. There are questions you might have about the possibility of adoption. Write out some ideas you have in mind for your adoption plan. This will help you get more of an idea for your plan. Be open to all possibilities because the plan you choose for your child will determine the type of contact you want with them throughout the adoption process and your child’s future. There are a few adoption plans you can choose from. These types of adoption are open adoption, semi-open adoption, or closed adoption. Adoption Choices of Arizona encourages communication between the adoptive family and child.

  • Open Adoption: This type of adoption lets you have open communication with the adoptive family and child. Make sure to check with the adoption family also about the types of communication you are all comfortable with.
  • Semi-Open Adoption: It still consists of communication and is similar to open adoption. Semi-open adoption is more private. Things can be shared in the main instead of in-person communication. Open adoption can be considered if all parties are comfortable with the decision.
  • Closed Adoption: This closed adoption consists of little to no communication for you and the baby. Consider all of these options thoroughly before deciding what is best for your child.
  1. Choose the right family for your child’s adoption.

Decide what you want in the family. Do all your research first before choosing the right adoptive family. After the birth of your child, you will be moving onto the next step in your adoption plan. Make sure that the child you’re putting up for adoption is going to a family you’re comfortable with. As you enter the hospital to prepare for your birth, try to have a set hospital plan for your adoption. Choose a family that makes you feel is a good home to raise a new child.  Adoption Choices of Arizona will help support and find the right adoptive family for your baby.

  1. Contact the adoptive family.

The journey with your child doesn’t have to stop after your child is put with the adoptive family of your choosing. Set up a time you’re comfortable to have regular contact with your child. Choose the type of communication you wish to have with your child and adoptive family.

  • Email
  • Texting
  • Facetime
  • Social Media
  • Annual Visits
  • Letters
  • Shared pictures

All of these appropriate options can be discussed with the adoptive family. The family can talk with you as well about other options that are not mentioned above.

  1. Have a support system.

The adoption plan you decided for your child will be a plan you think is best for you and your child. After birth, the child will go to the adoptive family of your choosing. You may want to think about joining a support group that best fits you. This support group will help you discover that you are not alone! Other mothers who have had unplanned pregnancies have been where you are. It helps to connect with others who have been in your shoes. Getting to know other women’s stories will make you feel more at ease and help you figure out what you want for your own future.
