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.
Closed adoption plan
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.
Are you ready to parent?
Making the choice to parent is as difficult as choosing adoption or abortion. Children don’t come with an instruction manual. Each child is unique. There isn’t a parent on the face of the earth that will tell you parenting is easy. No matter how much money, help, or brains you have, parenting is a challenge. It’s also incredibly rewarding.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Will my parents or partner support me if I choose to parent my child?
- Can I count on my partner to help me?
- What if my partner or parent(s) don’t want me to keep the baby, but I do?
- Can I finish school or continue my career and parent?
- How will I afford a child?
- Where will we live?
We can answer most of these questions and give you the information and resources you need to be a great parent.
