Placing a Child for Adoption Without a U.S. Citizenship
Any woman from any background, socioeconomic standing, race, and lifestyle can find themselves unexpectedly pregnant. It is a common circumstance that all women can face in their lifetime. This includes women who are living in the United States, are undocumented and do not have a U.S. citizenship.
Undocumented birth mothers have just as much right to be able to place their child for adoption as a birth mother with a U.S. citizenship. If you are an undocumented birth mother and you are considering placing your child for adoption, you probably have one big question ringing in your mind:
Am I able to place my child for adoption without a U.S. citizenship?
Does My Citizenship Status Matter?
The short answer to this question is no. Your citizenship status does not matter. Undocumented women can find themselves unexpectedly pregnant and deserve to have the opportunity to place their child for adoption without fear.
Adoption Choices of Texas wants pregnant women who are undocumented to know that we will accept you and work with your no matter what your citizenship status is. There will be no public record of the adoption plan, and this includes if you are a citizen or not. It will not disqualify you with being able to create an adoption plan with Adoption Choices of Texas. We accept all birth mothers from all walks of life and want you to feel safe coming to us.
Will I be Reported or Deported?
One of the biggest fears that you may have as an undocumented birth mother is if you pursue adoption, will you be reported by your adoption agency?
At Adoption Choices of Texas, this will never happen. Regardless if a birth mother is undocumented or not, your information is always one hundred percent confidential. Placing your child for adoption is done in a carefully planned and secure process that is designed to look out for not only you, but your child as well. Your information will be as anonymous as you wish it to be.
There are no public records of adoptions, so you will not have to be afraid that authorities will get a hold of your information and citizenship status. We are dedicated to keeping you as safe as possible and will help you in any way that we can to ensure your adoption process is smooth and safe.
Can I Ever Talk to My Child Again?
One thing that may be holding you back from placing your child for adoption as an undocumented birth mother is whether or not you will be able to talk to see your child again after the adoption is finalized. This is a common fear for birth mothers to have, regardless of citizenship status.
Your citizenship status does not matter if you wish to see or communicate with your child again after an adoption is finalized.
If having some kind of relationship with your child is something you want, your adoption team will help make that happen for you. You will be able to have contact with your child through an open or semi-open adoption, depending on the level of contact you wish to have. Once the adoptive parents are chosen, you will be able to communicate with them your needs and wishes. You can work together to find a happy medium so that each party is happy and content with the outcome.
