Can I Change my Mind if I Give my Baby up for Adoption in Kansas?
One of the top questions we receive from pregnant women and birth mothers is “Can I change my mind if I give my baby up for adoption?” Through the adoption process a woman 100% has the right to change her mind. Once she signs the consent to adoption, which relinquishes parental rights, she can no longer change her mind. Adoption Choices of Kansas prides ourselves on providing birth mothers across the state with the resources and information you need to have a successful adoption. We are prepared to provide the unplanned pregnancy help that you deserve! If you need adoption help now, please call us at 877-903-4488, text us at 316-209-2071, or visit us at Adoption Choices of Kansas.
Why would a Birth Mother Change Her Mind about Adoption?
There are many reasons why a birth mother might reconsider going forward with a private adoption in Kansas. Some women find themselves growing too attached to their unborn baby in the womb or in the period of time between the birth of their child and the finalization of the adoption process. For others, the circumstances that led them to adoption in the first place might be changing for the better. Maybe she has found herself in a better financial situation or a safer environment. Perhaps the birth father or family support system is now onboard with helping raise the baby. No matter the reason, a woman who considers and pursues adoption is not locked in until it is finalized.
If you feel that you want to reconsider your options, feel free to discuss it with us here at Adoption Choices of Kansas through one of our adoption professionals.
Disrupted Adoption in Kansas
When a woman terminates an adoption after being matched with an adoptive family, it is often referred to as a ‘disrupted adoption’. Disrupted adoptions can be painful for the adoptive family and the birth mother. Adoptive parents and birth mothers place a great deal of trust in each other when deciding on adoption. The adoptive family will feel a great sense of loss while the birth mother will likely feel a great sense of guilt. We have to consider what is best for that child; wounds heal.
Working with a Licensed Adoption Agency in Kansas
When disruptions do occur, it is most often the result of a lack of counseling and conversation with pregnant women. Working with a licensed adoption agency in Kansas can help prevent adoption disruptions. Our counselors work with birth mothers and help them navigate the realities of parenting. We aren’t here to convince her what to do or sway her decision one way or another. We do however provide information and resources to make the best decision for herself and her situation.
During pregnancy, there are a range of emotions a woman may be experiencing, all of which make it difficult to make the right decision. Becoming a parent, no matter how much someone wants to, may or may not be the right choice. The best thing to do is to be prepared with as much information as possible, seek support for the decision, and understand that this is a tough decision to make. Even on the right path, there will be moments of doubt.
We offer our counseling services and support 24/7, and each birth mother is assigned a licensed adoption specialist who is on her case from beginning to end. Our social workers truly understand the concerns, the needs, and the hopes of each woman we work with. This support leads to better treatment of birth mothers, more successful adoptions, and fewer adoption disruptions.
