Creating an Adoption Plan in Texas
By Jesse Popp
We know that being presented with an unexpected pregnancy can be scary, as you are faced with important decisions. Adoption is a safe and respectable choice for your baby’s future. Suppose you make the decision to place your baby for adoption in Austin, adoption in San Antonio, or adoption in any other city in Texas. In that case, we have resources for you to help you formulate a plan. An adoption plan is a guide to your adoption. Creating an adoption plan is a way to help the progress go smoothly – no matter where you are.

How an Adoption Plan Can Benefit You
Without an adoption plan, you would have to figure out arrangements for your baby, the set-up of your birth, and other important factors at the last minute. This would leave you unprepared.
Creating an adoption plan helps organize your adoption process. You will answer important questions and set expectations for the adoption. It can also help you outline the resources you will need for this process. In choosing adoption and creating a plan, you are making a responsible choice and ensuring a bright future for your baby.
Steps to Create an Adoption Plan:
The adoption process in Texas is straightforward and simple to take away any stress from this situation. It can be completed in four steps.
Step 1: You should begin by contacting Adoption Choices of Texas.
From here, we will provide numerous online resources to support you. We will also set you up with a trustworthy and caring team from one of our local adoption agencies. No matter if you live in a large city like Dallas or a small one like Eagle Pass, we will connect you to with adoption agency near you.
Step 2: Answer questions about your adoption going forward.
The next step of the process is answering specific questions. By answering these questions, you can outline what desires you have for yourself and your baby going into this adoption. These will be questions about:
- What kind of adoption would you like, be it a closed, semi-open, or open adoption?
- If you have any adoption preferences, for example, wanting your child to be with a single parent or to live with siblings.
- What support will you receive throughout your pregnancy?
These questions and more will help assure that you are assisted during your pregnancy and are comfortable with the family chosen for your baby. We are here to make sure your needs are met.
Step 3: Create a birth plan.
One of the most stressful parts of the entire process can be the birth itself. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we understand this and want you to be as comfortable and as prepared as possible. This is why creating a birth plan is an important step.
A birth plan outlines specifics about the birth itself. It can include who your support team will be at the hospital and who is invited to your birth (and if it includes the adoptive parents). It dictates how much time you would like to spend with your baby afterward if you do want to spend time with them, and what type of birth you are planning.
You deserve to have your desires fulfilled when it comes to your birth, as you are the birth mother and the priority. Outlining the details of your birth will help ensure this.
Step 4: Creating a plan for post-placement.
The final step is considering what kind of relationship you would like with your baby and their adoptive parent(s) after you place your baby in a family. This depends on the type of adoption you choose to have.
With open adoption, you may want to visit the child and stay in contact with the family. With a closed adoption, you may want to simply recover from the birth and have no future contact with the baby or the chosen family.
Whatever you would like, you can outline this beforehand.
