What Sets Adoption Choices of Texas Apart From Other Agencies
By Ashli-Amari Bent
When facing an unplanned pregnancy and choosing to pursue an adoption, you have many options with the agency you choose. These adoption agencies want to help you and your baby through this difficult time. It’s a cause we’re united in. There is the ultimate choice, however, and we believe we’re the agency that can help you the most.
Adoption Choices of Texas has many great resources dedicated to helping you throughout the adoption process. Our mission is to guide you throughout this journey and create a good future for you and your baby. In addition, our local adoption agencies have years of experience and are ready to help you no matter your circumstances. Together, we can ensure your adoption is successful while following your wants and needs.
The Adoption Process in Texas
What defines our adoption process in Texas is that you set the framework for the entire process. When you’ve decided on adoption and have connected with our local adoption agencies near you, the first step is planning. We help you create an adoption plan, where you’ll decide on topics like the adoptive family and the birth process. Our adoption specialists dedicate themselves to providing you with the information and support you need for these decisions. They’re here to help you with touch choices, never to sway you away from what you want. Once it’s done, we’ll have the information we need to guide you through the rest of the process.
As stated, one of the biggest parts of the adoption plan is how you choose the adoptive family. This involves another choice, the type of adoption you choose. The three types include open, semi-open, and closed. Open and semi-open adoption will mean you will have contact with the family and your child after they are born. This can allow you to build a relationship with your child in the future and be a part of your life. Semi-open adoption allows contact with more boundaries, which you and the family decide on. Closed adoption, however, has no contact with the family and your child before and after birth. We believe an open adoption has the most benefits for you and your child, but the choices are always yours. There is no one right-or-wrong way, simply what you think is best.
Your adoption plan tells us about your vision for the family that will adopt your child. Then our job is to find wanting families that match your desired traits and bring them to you. We highly recommend meeting with the families directly if you’ve chosen an open or semi-open adoption. While you’ll receive our profiles of them, the decider could be how to connect with the families firsthand. They could seem good on paper but feel different when speaking to them. When putting your child up for adoption, you want to be able to know someone you trust is raising them.
Then there is your birth plan. You can decide who you do or don’t want in the room with you during the birth. You can decide on other things, such as any medication and your desired birth method. This will also determine your time with your baby before they’re adopted and if you’ll name them. Keep in mind that no prenatal care adoption is still an option if that is what you want.
Financial Resources For Birth Mothers
Even if you’re not going to be raising your baby, we know that pregnancy is costly. As such, we’re prepared to help with this as best. Much of the support we can give in this area depends on your circumstances. If you have the support of your family or partner, your financial strain is most likely much less an issue. But if you are alone, we know that different living expenses can pile up. Our adoption specialists can meet with you and help you budget out what you need during your pregnancy. If you need more direct support, however, we can directly pay certain bills so you can focus on yourself. The mental strain of your finances can negatively affect you and your child’s health, so we want to avoid that.
Adoption Counseling Services and Support
During your adoption in Houston or beyond, you’ll feel a wide range of emotions. Some mothers feel immense grief and regret as they place their baby for adoption, while others wonder why they don’t. Any of these feelings are entirely valid, and we want to help you find your peace. Our specialists are here not only to help you with your plan but to hear you out. No matter how you’re feeling, talking to someone can be an important step in achieving acceptance. Counselors have years of experience with women in similar circumstances to you. They know how to help. During difficult moments, don’t hesitate to connect with your counselor. That way, someone’s in your corner.
This support continues after your pregnancy too. The effects of adoption can last long after we finish your adoption, and we still want to support you. You can still connect with counselors and find the support you need for what new feelings may come. Adoption Choices of Texas is with you for the long haul. We’ll always be with you if you need it.
