Give the gift of love
Are you surprised by your positive pregnancy test? We know an unplanned pregnancy can be overwhelming. We are here to help! Making an adoption plan is an opportunity to give your baby a positive future.
Adoption is not for everyone, but it could be the best option for you and your child’s future if you are willing to explore the possibility. Though it’s not an easy decision, adoption is one of bravery, selflessness, and hope.
It’s nice to know when everything seems out of control, you have complete control over making an adoption plan. As the birth mother, you can decide what type of adoption plan you want, who the adoptive family will be, and when the adoption will occur. There are three adoption plans to choose from. No one plan is better than another. You choose the plan that’s best for you.
Closed adoption plan
A closed adoption allows you to remain completely anonymous. Your adoption coordinator will choose the family for you and the original birth certificate is sealed to protect your name and location. Some women choose this plan because they feel it will help them move on with their lives
Open and semi-open plan
Open and semi-open adoption plans are the opposite of a closed adoption plan. These plans involve exchanging personal information with the adoptive family you choose. In a completely open plan, you share full names, addresses, emails, and even phone numbers. The two parties would have direct contact with each other. Together, you would arrange meetings and communicate regularly.
In a semi-open plan, you choose the adoptive family, but share first names only. All other contact is handled through your adoption coordinator.
