How to Give a Baby Up for Adoption

  • You will first need to contact your local adoption agency, Adoption Choices of Kansas.
  • After contacting us, you will have scheduled your first meeting to discuss your options with an adoption counselor or advisor. You may make an appointment to come into our office, schedule a time for an adoption counselor or advisor to come to you, or even set up a phone call or video call for your first meeting.
  • During this meeting, you will create your adoption plan. This includes choosing what type of adoption you would like to move forward with, choosing an adoptive family, and discussing what resources you may need throughout your pregnancy and after the birth.
    • There are three main types of adoption in Kansas.
      • Open adoption: where you will have direct contact and personal information is shared between you and the adoptive parents.
      • Semi-open adoption: where there is some contact, a mediator who will go back and forth between both parties.
      • Closed adoption: where there is absolutely no contact or personal information shared. The only thing shared is your medical history.
  • After creating your adoption plan, you will then wait for the child’s birth and finalize the adoption.
