It’s never too late.
It’s not uncommon for women to choose adoption from the hospital. This type of adoption is usually referred to as a last-minute adoption or after-delivery adoption. Giving your baby up for adoption at birth is an incredibly brave and selfless decision. Whatever your reasons may be, if you’re not ready to be a parent, adoption is a responsible and loving option. When you choose adoption, you’re providing a waiting family with a most precious and long-awaited gift. At the same time, you’re giving your baby the gift of a life filled with love and opportunities.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT LAST-MINUTE ADOPTIONS
If I’m in labor and haven’t made an adoption plan yet, can I still choose adoption?
Yes, you can absolutely choose adoption at the last minute. We often receive calls and messages from women who are in labor. If you’ve decided to put your baby up for adoption from the hospital, you can contact us anytime. Once we receive your call, we can have an adoptive family available for your baby within hours. The adoptive parents will take the baby home with them from the hospital, avoiding any need for foster care.
My baby has already been born — can I still make an adoption plan?

We will help you choose a loving adoptive family for your baby, then we’ll connect you with an adoption professional who will help coordinate everything between you and the family you choose.
Can I choose my baby’s adoptive family?
Yes. After you contact us, we will send you some adoptive family profiles to look through right away. We will only show you families who are open to the same things you are in your adoption plan. You can also choose the level of communication you’d like to have with them. It’s totally up to you how open or private you want your relationship to be.
How are adoptive families screened?
Before a family is eligible to adopt, they must complete a home study through their state. The home study is a thorough and invasive process that lasts about three to four months on average. It includes a full FBI background check and an in-depth evaluation of their finances, marital stability, lifestyle, personalities, physical and mental health, medical history, background, education, reasons for adopting, and much more. All families who successfully complete this difficult process are prepared to be parents in every way and will provide a safe, stable, and loving home for your baby. You can be confident that whichever family you choose will give your child the best possible life.
Is financial assistance available for me?
Yes. Almost all states allow for birth mothers to receive a certain amount of financial support after the adoption takes place. Most states also allow the adoptive family to provide assistance towards your medical bills. Furthermore, our services are totally free of charge for birth mothers!
