What is a Texas Closed Adoption?
By Danny Solorzano
So you’re probably going through a tough time right now. You might have found out that you are about to give birth to a child, but you cannot take care of your child yourself. That’s okay. It’s alright to feel a bit scared during this time. There’s nothing wrong with that, but keep in mind that you have options. One of those options is, of course, adoption.
We, Adoption Choices of Texas, try to make adoptions easy for everyone, especially you, the birth mother, but you might be wondering what kind of options you have as a birth mother. We offer different kinds of adoptions. Open, semi-open, and of course, closed adoptions. And since you clicked on this article, you want to learn more about a closed adoption. And we can help with that! We will go into as much detail as we can in this article and provide you with some insight into what all comes with a closed adoption. Now, let’s get into it!
What Does a Closed Adoption Mean?
As mentioned before, we offer a variety of choices when it comes to adoption, and one of those is a closed adoption. Closed adoptions have been dwindling in popularity in recent years, but we continue to offer them as we know some birth mothers prefer it. But what does it mean? A closed adoption means you have little to no contact with your child’s adoptive parents. You do not even get to choose the parents as you would in other adoption options, as that responsibility would fall on the adoption agency team. Most of your time will be spent devoted to yourself and your child. When you’re with us, we will cover your medical bills that pertain to your pregnancy, and we will also help with any other expenses if you need them. We also provide counseling if you need that as well. Now that you have a better understanding of closed adoption, let’s get into some of the benefits!
A Closed, Texas Adoption is Right for You If….
If you’re a private person or someone who just values privacy when it comes to things happening to your body and your person, this is your choice. You may be a person who simply wants to put your child up for adoption because you want to give them a life that you might not be able to provide for them. And that’s amazing you would do that for another being. It shows how selfless you are to want to give your child a future. Your medical history will be the only aspect of your life that will be shared with your child’s adoptive parents. This is only because we want your child’s adoptive parents to watch out for any inherited diseases or disorders. Have no worry! Nothing will be shared, and we will take extra steps to ensure your privacy.
A Closed Adoption Has Some Downsides
If you ever want to get in touch with your child or their adoptive parents in the future, you’re going to have a harder time tracking them than you would if you had chosen an open adoption. You have little to no contact with the adoptive family, and you don’t get to choose the adoptive parents. Your child might be placed in the care of someone who might be completely different from you or someone who holds the same customs and beliefs you do. These are just some things you want to keep in mind if you choose a closed adoption.
Choosing Adoption is a Great Thing
By choosing adoption, you’re not only giving your child a chance to grow into a fully-fledged adult, but you are also providing their adoptive parents the opportunity of a lifetime. An opportunity they would never have received had it not been for your contribution. By choosing to place your child for adoption, you’re choosing a path of generosity and kindness. And you can rest easy knowing that you did the right thing. If you have any questions regarding this process, don’t hesitate to contact Adoption Choices of Texas.
