In the last 25 years much has changed and evolved when it comes to adoption. When a woman finds herself in an unplanned pregnancy she has the option to place her baby. This comes at NO cost to the birth mother. All fees are taken care of by the adopting couple, including attorney fees.
“Open Adoption” is a term with different meanings when it comes to the amount of information and interaction between the birth mother and adoptive parents. You have a lot of control in open adoption. You hand pick and entrust your baby into the loving arms of your perfect couple. You decide what degree of openness feels right for you, and together you determine what your relationship will look like moving forward. You decide whom you want present at the birth, and how you want the transition to look in the hospital from birth mother to adoptive couple.
While Open Adoption is not shared parenting, you have the opportunity to have an ongoing relationship with your child and the adopting parents if you wish. Each situation is unique with some birth moms becoming ‘extended family’ while others prefer to simply get pictures and updates. We work with you to help develop the right balance in your personal situation. You will always have full knowledge and consent in all the decisions you are making so that your are at peace with them. Most importantly, your child will grow up forever knowing who you are, how much you love them, and the selfless gift you gave.
