Adoption is a legal process that permanently transfers the rights and responsibilities of parenting a child from the birth parents to the adoptive parents.

The Benefits of Adoption
Releasing your baby for adoption can provide many benefits to both you and your child. Some of these benefits include:
A Safe and Stable Home
By releasing your baby for adoption, you ensure your child will grow up in a safe and stable environment with loving parents who are fully committed to their well-being. This can provide your child with a strong foundation for a happy and healthy life and a bright future for you
Our licensed adoption agency provides financial assistance to birth mothers in need. This assistance can help cover medical expenses, living expenses, and other costs associated with the pregnancy and adoption process. Check with the agency for the legal parameters in your state.
Choice and Control
As the birth mother, you have the ability to choose the adoptive family for your child and decide about your child’s future. You can also choose the level of contact you wish to have with your child and the adoptive family after your child is placed in the adoptive home.
The Adoption Process
At our licensed adoption agency, we believe in making the adoption process as smooth and stress-free as possible for birth mothers. The adoption process typically involves the following steps:
Step 1: Contacting Our Agency
The first step in the adoption process is to contact our licensed adoption agency. Our team will provide you with information about the adoption process, answer your questions, and help you determine whether adoption is the right choice for you.
Step 2: Creating an Adoption Plan
Once you have decided to move forward with adoption, we will work with you to create an adoption plan that meets your needs and preferences. It’s YOUR plan! This plan will include choosing an adoptive family, deciding on the level of contact you wish to have with your child, and determining the financial assistance you will receive.
Step 3: Choosing an Adoptive Family
We work with a wide range of adoptive families who have been thoroughly vetted to ensure that they can provide a safe and loving home for your child. You will review profiles of adoptive families and choose the family that you feel is the best fit for your child.
Step 4: Placing Your Child for Adoption
Once you have chosen an adoptive family, you will work with our team to make arrangements for the placement of your child. Most placements are done after delivery at the hospital, but circumstances vary. Your caseworker will work carefully with you to develop a plan you are comfortable with.
Step 5: The Legal Process of Adoption
After the placement, parental rights will need to be terminated. There are a couple of ways to do this legal piece. An Out of Court release can be done, or termination in a court. This typically takes place several weeks after delivery or placement.
Step 6: Post-Placement Support
Our licensed adoption agency provides post-placement support to birth mothers. This support may include counseling services, help with navigating the legal process, and assistance with adjusting to life after the adoption. We will be there for you!
