Texas Adoption Support Through the New Year
By Jessica Hall
Are you a birth mother ready to take the next step in the adoption process? We know it probably hasn’t been an easy decision to make. There are many things to consider before taking that step. Like why adoption might be the best option for you and the baby. Or how it will feel when your head sometimes tells you, “I’m giving up my baby.” A sea of different emotions will come up. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we have the knowledge and resources to help you navigate that sea. Below are the steps to creating an adoption plan and where we can help birth mothers like you find happiness.
1. Find an Adoption Center Near Me
If you’re planning an adoption in Texas, you’ll need to find an adoption agency near you. We conveniently have agencies located all around Texas. Are you closer to our services for adoption in Houston, TX? Maybe you’re closer to our adoption agencies in Dallas or looking for adoption in Austin. Wherever you are in Texas, we can help you find the right place to start your adoption journey.
2. Start the Adoption Process in Texas and Create an Adoption Plan
After choosing adoption in Dallas, an Austin adoption, or one of our other nearby centers, the adoption process begins. This is when it’s crucial to have the right team of adoption professionals. We will help you thoroughly examine what type of adoption will fit your lifestyle based on your needs and wants.
There are three kinds of adoption. There’s open adoption, which is the most common type of adoption nowadays. This is when the birth mother keeps a consistent relationship with the adoptive family and the child. There’s also semi-open adoption when the birth mother keeps in contact but is less involved. And there’s closed adoption when no contact is had between the birth mother and adoptive family. This was much more common in the past. However, closed adoptions have become less frequent in the current era.
No two adoptions are the same. You are a unique individual that deserves a customized plan based on your desires. We’ll then take this curated adoption plan and find the right adoptive family for you.
3. Get Resource Support From the Adoption Center
We have the resources to provide teen pregnancy options. As a part of your adoption plan, we’ll evaluate what you need and where we can help. Many birth mothers can’t afford the supplies and care needed to ensure a healthy pregnancy. If eligible, Adoption Choices of Texas provides financial support for essentials and medical care. Essentials that qualify are healthy groceries, reliable transportation, stable housing, and consistent phone service. We are concerned for your well-being. We want you to be happy and for you and the baby to be safe and healthy.
4. Choose an Adoptive Family Through the Texas Adoption Center
The type of adoption you choose will affect how active and involved you are in selecting the adoptive family. Some birth mothers are ready to incorporate the adoptive family into everything. They’ll invite them to doctor’s appointments and plan events to get to know each other. Others prefer to have no involvement. And while we advocate for open or semi-open adoptions, closed adoption is still an option. We will choose a loving family that matches your adoption plan.
5. Sign the Adoption Texas Paperwork
The adoption process isn’t finalized until you’ve signed the paperwork. In Texas, you may sign the paperwork within 48 hours after giving birth. In some cases, the baby will immediately go home with the adoptive family. With others, the birth mother hasn’t decided on an adoption plan or family. We encourage all birth mothers to make these decisions early. It can be added stress to have the baby and make an adoption plan you feel confident in.
6. Receive Post-Placement Adoption Support
After giving birth, it can feel like you’re putting your child up for adoption. It can be emotional. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, we have adoption counseling at all of our centers. Birth mothers who started an adoption during the holidays have benefited from counseling in the New Year. It can feel like a fresh start – a new beginning. And can make you realize all of the potentials your future holds.

There are many adoption agencies in Texas, so choosing the right one may feel overwhelming. Adoption Choices of Texas has many adoption centers in major cities around Texas. So whether you choose adoption in Dallas or adoption in Austin, you’re sure to find phenomenal guidance.
