Creating an Adoption Plan in Texas
Making an adoption plan means making a plan for your baby’s life. As an expectant woman (aka birth mother), you have many options when it comes to an adoption plan. You can choose the type of adoption you want related to communication with the adoptive family and later, child. Types of adoption include: an open adoption, semi-open adoption, or fully closed adoption plan.
Another consideration regarding the type of adoption is the type of family you want to raise your child. You get to choose an adoptive family for your child. Do you want a single parent? You can choose an LGBT couple, an older or younger couple, or a traditional man and woman couple. You can also consider a military family to adopt your child, a transracial family, or another family dynamic. We will show you family profiles of waiting families in Texas and you can find the characteristics that match with your values.
Also in an adoption plan, you can create your ideal hospital and birth plan. You can read more about your hospital plan in “Things for a Birth Mother to Include in Texas Adoption Birth/Hospital Plan“.
An adoption plan in full is a description of what you want for your child and yourself.
As you consider making an adoption plan, you should keep in mind that you are certainly not “giving up” or “putting your baby up” in any way. You are making a positive and loving choice, with your child’s best interest at heart. At the end of the day, this is YOUR call, your decisions, and you are in charge.
