All About Kansas Adoptive Parents
By Mona Jradé
Adoption is becoming more and more common in today’s world. It’s typically the best choice for pregnant women who experience unplanned or unexpected pregnancies and have no idea what to do or can’t provide for the child themselves. The goal of putting your baby up for adoption is to provide your baby with a safe and loving environment. Adoption is a difficult process, and at Adoption Choices of Kansas want to ensure that we do right by all parties concerned. So if you are considering adoption and considering putting your baby up for adoption, then you must be informed about everyone involved in the process, including adoptive parents. So who are the Adoptive parents?
Who are the KS adoptive parents?
Adoptive parents are the people who are interested in adopting in Kansas. They are the people who will receive your baby after you adopt out your baby. Adoptive parents may have a lot of reasons to choose adoption, but one thing is for sure, they will provide your baby with a loving and supportive environment.
How Adoption Works for Adoptive Parents?
Adoptions are a unique process that is unique to the people going through the process. In most cases, you, the birth mother, have full control over what happens. You make the adoption plan, and you choose what happens after you put your baby up for adoption. In other words, you can choose the type of adoption (closed, open, and semi-open), the adoptive parents, and everything in between. Adoptive parents start to be in the picture when you start the process of looking at potential family profiles for your baby. In your capacity as the birth mother, you are bound to have a certain idea about the kind of family you are looking for, so our adoption agencies in Kansas will go the extra mile to find you the perfect adoptive parents that match your needs the best.
What Happens Next in the Adoption Process?
Considering the type of adoption you choose, an adoption counselor will schedule a meeting between all parties involved. Rest reassured that our adoption agencies abide by the Kansas adoption requirements. During the adoption process, you can stay in touch with the adoptive parents, especially when the due date approaches. Our counselor will provide you with the support you need throughout the process and will act as your advocate at the hospital. After the baby is born, the chosen adoptive parents will take them home. After that, your counselor will arrange for the court date in which, as a birth mother, you give your consent. Keep in mind that having a relationship with the adoptive parents is totally up to you, and you don’t need to feel guilty about it.
FAQ About Adoption and the Adoptive Parents
1. How will the type of adoption affect your relationship with the adoptive parents?
Choosing the type of adoption will determine the nature of the relationship between you and the adoptive parents. There are three types of adoption: Open, semi-open, and closed. Each type entitles a different relationship with the adoptive parents. For example, if you choose an open adoption, you will remain in contact with the adoptive parents after the baby is born and the adoption has been finalized. You can choose the way you keep in touch with your parents. For instance, you can choose to receive written updates on how your birth baby is doing. It all depends on you and the adoptive parents and how you choose to handle it.
However, if you choose a closed adoption, you will have zero contact with the adoptive parents, except for medical history. In this case, adoption agencies are in control of the adoption, which means you will not receive any updates about your birth child from the adoptive parents, and they won’t have any type of relationship with you.
Finally, in case you choose a semi-open adoption, you can still choose the adoptive parents. During the adoption process, contact between you and your adoptive parents is rare, but it all depends on what you agree on and what you and the adoptive parents are comfortable with. In addition, after the adoption is finalized, there’s not a lot of contact between you and the adoptive parents.
2. How do I Know I Chose the Right Family For My Baby?
