Choosing Adoption After the Baby is Born
If you did not make the decision to place your baby for adoption until after the birth, don’t panic; you still have the option. However, it is important that you contact an adoption center as soon as possible in order to get the process started. If other agencies such as CPH (Child Protective Services) get involved it can make things more difficult, so the sooner you get in touch with us, the easier the process will be.
Even if you have not yet made the decision to place your baby for adoption, you can still give us a call and get the answers to any questions that you have. There is no obligation, and we are available 24/7 to assist you in any way possible.
A Few Things to Consider
You can still choose adoption after the baby is born. This is true even if you have taken the baby home and nursed it for a few months. However, before you do so, it is important that you take the time to consider the decision to place your baby for adoption. It is a life changing decision, and you must make sure that it is one you want to make. You should also speak with your friends and family, as having support during this time can make a world of difference.
Now that you know adoption is still available, even after the baby is born, it is important that you know what that really means:
- It means gives adoptive parents the most important gift one can give
Nothing is more meaningful than giving an adoptive couple or individual the option to become a family. For whatever reason they have chosen to adopt, it would not be possible without you. By picking the best family, you are not only choosing a happy home for your child, but for the adoptive parents as well.
- It means your child will grow up in a loving environment
Because of the hands-on aspect of the adoption process, you can make certain that your child grows up in the best home possible. This means that you will know that your child is thriving, because you will have been able make it so.
- You can still be a part of your child’s life
If you choose to have an open or semi-open adoption, you can continue to have contact with your child even after the adoption. This contact can take place in many ways, such as physical interaction, remote interaction (video/skype calls, etc.) or even vicariously through updates from the adoptive parents.
No matter what decision you make, simply taking the time to learn about your options will help tremendously. We are available 24/7 to support you every step of the way. Take as much time for yourself as you need and, if you choose adoption, give us a call.
