How do I know adoption is the right choice?

It’s a question we hear often. There’s no magical answer; no blanket answer for every woman. Nor is there a right or wrong answer. Asking yourself some questions can help you to determine if (or why) placing a baby for adoption in the right choice for you though.

  • Am I able to raise this baby or ready to raise this baby?
  • Do I know my pregnancy options?
  • Have I missed the window to terminate my pregnancy?
  • Am I in financial troubles?
  • Do I want this baby to have the best life possible and am I prepared to give that to her?
  • Do I have a support system in place to help?

How to put a child up for adoption

1. Am I ready to be a parent?

This is always the first question a woman should ask herself if she’s experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and wondering, “Should I give my baby up for adoption?” Are you truly ready to be a parent? Will you be able to continue with your education or career if you have a child? Can you afford to raise a child right now? Do you want to be a mom right now?

2. Do I understand the adoption process?

It’s important to understand that you will be completely in charge of the adoption process with our adoption agency. You’ll get to choose adoptive parents for your child and maintain a relationship — both with them and your baby — as your child grows up. You can choose adoption at any point, either before or after your baby is born, and you will work with an adoption specialist to determine exactly what you’re comfortable with at every step.

3. Do I have a support system?

Many women wondering, “Is adoption right for me?” choose this path because they know they will ultimately be raising their child alone. It is absolutely possible to be a wonderful parent as a single mother, and there is no shame whatsoever in this. It’s also true, though, that some times you’re going to need help. Consider whether the father of your child will be a reliable source of support. If not, can you expect any of your close family members or friends to step up when you need help?

4. Have you considered all aspects of your adoption decision?

You are the only person who can determine the answer to “Is adoption right for me?”. Your family, friends, and even the baby’s father may want to weigh in on your decision, but ultimately, you are the only one who knows what’s right for you and your baby and what you need.

Open Adoption in Houston

We are a licensed, private adoption agency and we are committed to providing open adoptions, semi-open adoptions, and closed adoption for women facing an unplanned pregnancy in and around Houston as well as across Texas. In modern adoption, it is much more common for our birth parents and adoptive families to want an open adoption. But what does that mean?

Open adoption is a type of adoption in which contact information is shared between the birth parents and adoptive family. There will be some level of communication and openness between the two. Often, the birth mother will meet the adoptive family prior to giving birth and make decisions together about the birth plan and keeping in touch after the baby is born. Openness might include emails and photos, phone calls, and sometimes in person visits.

Open adoptions are unique and custom to birth parent wants and needs. They are often fluid and change over time. Some times open adoptions naturally become closed and some times closed adoptions become open. More often than not, the level of openness falls somewhere in the middle with a semi-open adoption. This is beneficial for both the birth parents, adoptive families, and the child.
