Am I in Control of My Texas Adoption Plan?
If you are currently experiencing an unexpected pregnancy and are considering adoption, you may be wondering how much control you have over the adoption process. Your adoption plan is specifically designed for you and will only include what you want it to include. Our staff at Adoption Choices of Texas is ready and waiting to assist you.
What is a Texas Adoption Plan?
According to our website, an adoption plan is “a full description of what you want for your child and yourself.” Adoption plans are tailored to each birth mother, and no two are alike. You choose who will adopt your baby, what kind of adoption you would like, your labor and delivery plan, and any post-placement support or counseling you need. You have full and complete control over your adoption plan.
The first step of your Texas Adoption Plan is to contact Adoption Choices of Texas via phone or email. Then, if you decide that you want to proceed with the adoption, we will begin your adoption process.
The next step of the adoption process is to choose the type of adoption you would like. There are three main types of adoption— open, semi-open, and closed— and the type of adoption you choose will dictate the level of openness in your adoption. Open adoptions consist of direct communication between your child’s adoptive parents. Both parties can exchange emails, phone numbers, and social media information. Communication is mediated by your adoption facilitator in a semi-open adoption. Your adoption specialist will disseminate all updates and photos. There is no communication between you and the adoptive parents in a closed adoption. Your medical history is the only information they and your child will receive about you.
After you decide on the type of adoption you would like, you choose your child’s adoptive family. Be thinking about the type of life you want your child to lead and what kind of parents you want them to have. Do you want your child to have siblings, pets, or live in a diverse neighborhood? Ask yourself questions like these to help you pick the right family for your child. Your Adoption Choices of Texas adoption specialist will provide you with a range of prospective family profiles, and it is entirely up to you to pick the best family for your child. We never rush you through any part of the adoption process, and we want you to make an informed decision about who will adopt your child.
Once you contact us, we will assign you your own adoption facilitator or counselor. Your adoption counselor will act as your guide throughout the adoption process. Your adoption facilitator will determine what kinds of financial, medical, and post-placement support you may need.
Adoption Choices of Texas provides financial assistance to all of its birth mothers who qualify. This assistance can cover expenses like rent, groceries, bills, and other maternity-related expenses. We can also provide transportation to and from your doctor’s appointments.
Adoption Choices of Texas also helps with your medical expenses and legal fees. We ensure that our birth mothers are taken care of during and after the adoption process. We do not abandon you once you give birth to your baby.
You are in complete control of your adoption process from start to finish. We never force you to make a decision or rush. Our job is to guide you, not make decisions for you. Every single choice, no matter how big or small, is entirely your decision. You are in charge of your adoption journey; we just help you navigate it.
