What is the adoption process during the holidays? Talking it out with adoption agencies in Kansas
The Kansas adoption process during the holidays is the same as any other day. Times might be switched and delayed, but since our service is 24 hours a day and seven days a week, it won’t affect your adoption process. If you are not aware of the thorough adoption process that we follow along with you, then that is fine.
Step 1: After you find out you are pregnant, make sure you analyze if you want to raise your child. You have different options other than raising the child, which is to terminate the child or put the baby up for adoption. We understand it may be tough if you decide to adopt, but we understand why you are doing such. After taking such steps to put your baby up for adoption, contact us, Adoption Choices of Kansas.
Step 2: We will plan a meeting between ourselves and you. You can come to us, or we can come to you! Whatever works best for you, but we need reassurance that you are pregnant before we progress into the adoption. It is just a precaution we take for reasons pertaining to the agency.
Step 3: Find a doctor that will assist you during your pregnancy to be taken care of medically along with your baby. From there, you will create an adoption plan that includes preferences according to your baby’s adoptive parents. To add on, you will choose the type of adoption you want: closed, semi-closed, or opened. There are more decisions, including your needs, such as financial assistance.
Step 4: Now, the important part comes, which is choosing the adoptive parents of your unborn child. Based on the preferences you provided us with, we will give you parent profiles that detail and match your preferred preferences. From there, you and your counselor will interview families, and depending on the types of adoption you picked, the interviews will be face or face, or you will never meet the adoptive parents. Never worry if you are not fond of the provided families, we can definitely give you more!
Step 5: Now is the important part which is the birth of your baby! You are in charge of the hospital plan, which details who you want in the room while giving birth. To add on, you make decisions in regards to holding the child after the birth of your child. There is more, of course, that needs to be discussed, but you will get into the specifics when the time comes. Your counselor will be there at the hospital regardless because they need to advocate for you.
Step 6: Once the child is born, the child will then be placed into the care of their adoptive parents. Soon after, you will give up your parental rights as the mother who will finalize the adoption process.
Step 7: Depending on the form of adoption you picked, there will be continuous communication between yourself and the adoptive family. The communication will be in different forms: text, letters, pictures, calls, or more. Again, it depends on your agreement with your baby’s adoptive family. If you do have financial assistance from our agency, that will end six weeks after the birth of your baby. But, if you continue to need financial help, we can provide you with resources that will help you with such.
Step 8: Adoption is an emotional rollercoaster that affects many birth mothers after their baby is no longer in their care. If you need therapy or are suffering mentally, we offer such free of charge without worry.
The holidays will never affect our time with you!
Will my baby’s adoptive parents want to spend time with me during the holidays?
That is precisely up to you and the adoptive parents of your baby. They may if you have an open adoption because, in some cases, birth mothers become part of the family. But, don’t depend on them calling to ask you to spend time with them. Adoption is a delicate process with the baby and the adoptive parents. You all are getting to know each other, but there are boundaries in place to protect both parties.
If you would like to ask them, that is fine, but if they say do not get discouraged, it is just them considering all the factors in place. They appreciate you but would like to make sure certain tasks need to be followed. If they say no, just to be clear as to your adoption, we are here during the holidays. To add on, there are multiple support groups online or in-person during the holidays for birth mothers that put their children up for adoption.
