A Quick Adoption with Adoption Choices of Texas
After making the courageous decision to pursue placing your child for adoption, you may think that having a long adoption process is not right for you. If you think that going through an adoption with little to no support and services from an adoption agency is what you’re looking for, then a quick adoption with Adoption Choices of Texas may be the right decision for you.
We at Adoption Choices of Texas will work with any birth mother that comes to us, regardless of how slow or fast, they want an adoption to be carried out. You will have complete control over the adoption process and that includes your right to accept or reject supportive services. There is no right or wrong way to go through an adoption process, and we will help you achieve your needs one step at a time!
1. How to Start a Quick Adoption?
Once you have decided that placing your child is the best option for not only yourself, but your baby as well, one of the first questions that will pop into your mind is: what now?
Put simply, you would contact an adoption agency. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we would direct you to one of our adoption professionals. If you decided to move forward with us, you would be assigned an adoption caseworker who would provide you with an application and then help you create your adoption plan.
2. What Does a Quick Adoption Look Like?
While creating your adoption plan, you will then be able to discuss what a quick adoption could look like for you. Know that our agency is a safe, empowering and nonjudgmental adoption agency. We will help you however we can, and your adoption caseworker will work directly with you to create a quick adoption plan that is tailored to your specific needs and wishes.
Your adoption caseworker will go over a few things that are basic components of an adoption plan to make them a quick adoption. You will be asked about your thoughts on what type of adoption you would like to pursue (open, semi-open, or closed), if you wish to help choose the adoptive parents, and if you wish to partake in any supportive services Adoption Choices of Texas has to offer. These services could include: financial support, medical care, housing, transportation, and counseling.
No matter what you decide, we will be there to support you and accommodate you every step of the way. There is no right or wrong choice when talking about supportive services. Many birth mothers are in a financially secure place and they don’t need our financial, medical, housing, or transportation services. It all depends on you and your specific circumstances.
3. Do You Have to Go through Counseling?
A common question that birth mothers ask when discussing a quick adoption is: do I have to go through counseling?
The short answer is no! Supportive counseling offered by Adoption Choices of Texas is not mandatory. It is a great resource that is at your disposal, should you choose to pursue it. Not all birth mothers feel they need counseling during or after the adoption process. Every birth mother’s mental and emotional well-being will be different based on their specific life circumstances. A birth mother who has a great support system around her may not need to have extra counseling services. But, the reality is that far too many birth mothers do not have support from their friends, family, or extended family. So, the supportive counseling service is there for birth mothers who need support.
This service is completely optional and not required by our agency to work through us to place your child for adoption. Your adoption caseworker may encourage that you do utilize the supportive counseling resource. But if counseling is not something you are comfortable with, your adoption caseworker may then encourage you to reach out to your friends and family for support instead.
4. Can I have a Quick Adoption after Going into Labor?
There is a common scenario that birth mothers may find themselves in. While at a hospital giving labor or already delivered their child, a birth mother will realize that parenting is not the right choice for them, and they wish to place their child for adoption as soon as possible. But, what do you do next? Will an adoption agency take your call even though you have already delivered your child?
Adoption Choices of Texas will always take your call!
The above scenario is a common call that Adoption Choices of Texas receives from birth mothers. We are a newborn and infant adoption agency and there is no time limit on when you can place that important phone call to us. At any stage during or a few months after delivering, if you wish to begin the process of placing your child for adoption, we will accommodate you in any way that we can.
