Kansas Adoption While in the Military
Adoption in Kansas is a wonderful, rewarding experience, and if you are in the military, it is an option for you. There are a number of reasons as to why you can be considering adoption. You might not be ready to be a parent, you do not want to be a parent, or you do not want to raise your child while you are in the military and have them move around with you. You could want them to have a stable home life and not worry about if you are all moving or not. There is no need to panic because Adoption Choices of Kansas is here for you.
Adoption Choices of Kansas, What we Have to Offer
Now since you are in the military and your schedule is different from most, you might think that going through the Kansas adoption process will be very difficult. That is not the case. We will cater to your schedule when you work with us here at Adoption Choices of Kansas. For our meetings, we can meet with you at any time that works best for you, and we can meet however you would like. We can conduct our meetings over the phone, internet video conference, in person at our offices, your home, or a location of your choice.
Creating your Kansas adoption plan is a rewarding experience, and we do our best to make sure that you understand that you are the one in charge. You will be assigned an adoption specialist who will provide the information you need to create your adoption plan. They are also there to answer any questions you may have. Your caseworker will not make any decisions on your adoption plan for you. Only you can create your adoption plan. You get to create your plan to how you see fit and do what is best for both you and your child.
What Decisions You get to Make During the Adoption Process
All aspects of your adoption plan will be decided on by you and what you think is best. Some key decisions include what type of adoption you want and what adoptive family your child goes to once the adoption is finalized. Placement takes place, and what kind and how much communication do you have with the adoptive family and your child.
For choosing what types of adoption you want to have, you get to pick from a closed adoption, semi-open adoption, and open adoption. Now just because you pick one of these options does not mean that you are stuck with that type of adoption. For example, say you decide to go with a semi-open adoption initially, but down the road, you decide you want a different type of adoption. Depending on what you think is best, you can change from a semi-open adoption to a closed adoption or open adoption.
A very important step in creating your adoption plan is picking the adoptive family. Your caseworker will provide you with profiles and information on the adoptive families we have on our waiting list. If you look through the profiles provided and do not find a family that you think is best for your child, you can ask your caseworker to see more profiles of adoptive families.
One of the last decisions you get to make is how much and what kind of communication you have with the adoptive family. This also relates to what kind of Wichita adoption you have. For instance, if you have an open adoption, you and the adoptive family can agree to have monthly check-ins and specific times where you can see your child and the adoptive family.
How we can Support You and Aid You in Your Kansas Adoption
Here at Adoption Choices of Kansas, we know that being in the military and having to care for your child can be challenging, especially financially.

We also know how difficult this can be on you mentally, which is why we provide a free counseling service. This counseling service is a place where you can meet with one of our counselors one on one and work through the feelings you are dealing with, get any questions you may have answered, or it can be a place where you can just speak your mind and clear your head.
