It Is Never Too Late
Whether you are three months pregnant, in the hospital, or your child is two years old, adoption is still on the table. A birth mother exploring her adoption options later than most will experience a different adoption plan. Things like prenatal care, meetings with adoptive families, and your hospital plan will all look different. But the end goal will be the same. Our mission is to find that ideal adoptive family for you and your child. An adoptive family who shares the same beliefs as you, similar ideas for parenting, or whatever is important to you. As a birth mother, you are in total control!
The first step for a birth mother in the hospital is to contact an adoption specialist. Tell them about your situation and anything else they may need to know. Your adoption specialist only wants what is best for you; they are more on your team than the adoptive family. After you get squared away with your adoption specialist, it is time to start meeting adoptive families. Depending on if the baby has been born, you can even introduce your baby in meetings with prospective families. Don’t think about “what ifs” and do what you feel is right. If you want the adoption specialist to be present at all meetings, request that. If you desire more meetings with prospective families, be our guest. There are multiple adoption agencies near you. Find the closest agency and get started today!
Am I Still Eligible for Financial Assistance?
Of course. Adoption is free of charge for birth mothers. However, financial assistance extends far beyond prenatal care and the delivery of your baby. If you are in the hospital and are reconsidering adoption, we can still provide financial assistance. Adoption Choices of Kansas can help you with rent/utilities, food, transportation, and more! Your adoption specialist will find out how much financial assistance you require. That means that he/she will evaluate your spending and will put a plan in place that fits your budget. We understand how emotionally demanding adoption can be and don’t want to add unnecessary stress to your life. The only thing you must worry about is finding the perfect adoptive family! Putting a child up for adoption is easier than you think, and you will make an adoptive family’s dream come true!
What Happens at the Hospital?
If you are still figuring out if adoption is right for you, you will get to spend some time with your baby. If you have already chosen adoption, the baby will leave with the adoptive parents. You can contact an adoption specialist at the hospital if you have yet to decide! Your adoption specialist will do everything possible to set up an adoption plan that fits your schedule. It can be especially heart-wrenching to make that call while cradling your baby, but you know it is for the best. Adoption Choices of Kansas understands that you are choosing adoption purely out of love for your child. Some adoptive families are prepared to travel anywhere in the country for the opportunity to have a child of their own. You can choose to take your time as well. Remember, we want you to feel comfortable. Learn how to put a child up for adoption in rare circumstances!
