Resources for Birth Mothers wanting to Place Their Baby for Adoption in Texas
If you are considering placing your baby for adoption in Texas, you may be wondering what resources are available to you. Even if you have not yet made the decision, getting in touch with the right adoption agencies ahead of time, and learning a bit more about the adoption process, will make everything much easier if you decide to adopt later on.
Keep in mind that while some resources are available nationwide, some are also state specific. That’s why Adoption Choices of Texas has compiled a list of adoption agencies and services exclusively available for birth mothers in the state of Texas. If you are more concerned about general information, such as financial assistance, please refer to the information available here: Financial Assistance for Birth Mothers in Texas.
Resources for Expectant Women and Birth Mothers in Texas:
While there are many different types of resources available, some of the most fundamental are those provided by adoption agencies. Because of their integral role in the adoption process, our experienced socialworkers on staff, and the information they have about the process as a whole, can be extremely useful even if you simply want to learn about your options. While we would certainly like you to give our agency a call in order to give you as many resources as possible we are also listing other agencies that work out of Texas.
Available 24/7, our adoption center in Texas can help you get started with the adoption process, provide you with resources – financial support and counseling, or answer any questions. Don’t hesitate to give us a call even if you simply wish to discuss your options. Our resources are available throughout your pregnancy and even after the birth.
Another extremely important resource available to you comes in the form of support groups. These groups, all based in Texas, meet either in person or remotely in order to provide a safe space to share your stories and to connect with other birth mothers. They have no obligations, and are simply there to help birth mothers during any stage of the adoption process.
- Adoption Knowledge Affiliates – This support group meets on the first Tuesday of every month, and provides a safe platform for birth mothers to share their experiences and make connections.
- Concerned United Birthparents – Concerned United Birthparents is a message board that allows birth mothers to communicate and ask questions at any time. This makes them a great option for birth mothers unable to meet in person or adhere to a specific schedule.
- SAFE – The Stop Abuse for Everyone Alliance (SAFE) provides counseling, legal services, housing, and other services to anyone in need, but has specific resources available for birth mothers involved in the adoption process.
- Genesis – Genesis is a women’s shelter and support group that provides housing and support to women in unsafe situations.
- Central Texas Food Bank – The Central Texas Food Bank is an agency that works with local businesses and social service/government agencies to provide free food to the community.
Keep in mind that even if none of these agencies seem just right, there are more resources available for birth mothers. We can work with you to find any specific resources that you might need, so please reach out to us with any questions that you have. Know that you are not alone during this time, and that there is never a bad time to seek help.
