By Jillian Pappas

If you find yourself with an unplanned pregnancy, you likely have a million different questions racing through your mind. Is placing a child for adoption the right choice for me? How do I even begin? What kind of adoption type is right for me? At Adoption Choices of Texas, we want you to know that we are determined to help you with the adoption process.

Adoption Choices of Texas, we understand that the adoption process can be stressful. In this article, we will provide a guideline on the adoption process in Texas. In addition, we will go through every step of the adoption process and provide you with resources and information.

Step 1– Contact Adoption Choices of Texas

The first step in the adoption process is to contact our agency. We will provide you with an excellent adoption specialist to help you make important decisions by contacting our agency. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we also have other resources to help you create an adoption plan or answer any questions. To contact Adoption Choices of Texas, you can contact us to get started on your adoption journey. We have offices all over the state, including Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, El Paso, Austin, and McAllen.

Step 2– Create an adoption plan

After you connect with one of our adoption specialists, we will help you create an adoption plan. An adoption plan is a guideline for your entire adoption process. In this plan, you will provide all of your preferences for adoption in Houston and throughout Texas. This includes:

  • Adoption type– open adoption, semi-open adoption, closed adoption
  • Adoptive family preferences– race, religion, and other preferences like pets, etc. 
  • Hospital or birth plan– who do you want to support you at the hospital?
  • Budget for Financial Assistance
  • Your support team– who is your support team made up of? How can they be supportive of you during this process?

In this step, you will be making many important decisions. Adoption Choices of Texas wants you to know that your choices are valid. Not everyone’s adoption plans are alike. What works for one birth mother may not work for another. Any choice that the birth mother makes is important to us. 

Step 3– Have Baby

Once you are ready to have your baby, you will follow the birth plan you created with your adoption specialist. Since this time can be highly stressful for the birth mother, it’s essential to have a detailed adoption plan that outlines your preferences and needs about the birth plan. Some of these details may include:

  • Whether or not you would like to spend time with the baby after giving birth.
  • Who is going to be allowed to visit you at the hospital?
  • Are the adoptive parents invited to visit the hospital?

At Adoption Choices of Texas, we want you to know that we understand that the birthing process can be high stress. It’s okay to be nervous! However, we also want to stress that it’s vital that things are done the way you would like them. Birth is highly intimate and can be a harrowing experience. It is entirely your decision to decide who is invited to the hospital and who is there to support you. Therefore, creating a support team with your adoption specialist is essential. 

Some birth mothers invite the adoptive parents to their child’s birth. This can be a positive experience for all to share. However, you are under no obligation to do things a certain way. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we want to remind you that this is your adoption journey, and whatever you decide is valid.

Step 4– Post-Placement

At last, the final step is one of the most critical steps to the adoption process. At this step, Adoption Choices of Texas has resources to help the birth mother post-placement. These resources include:

  • Financial Help
  • Medical Care
  • Temporary Housing help
  • Supportive counseling
