Is the adoption process different for single birth mothers in Texas?

Whether or not you’re in a relationship. The adoption process doesn’t change. If you’re going through the adoption process alone. We have adoption agents that will be there by your side. So you don’t feel you’re going through this alone. At our agency, we’ve worked with many birth mothers in many situations. Not having the birth father in your life won’t deter us from lending a helping hand.

What adoption services are provided for single birth mothers in Texas?

At Adoption Choices of Texas, we offer services to birth mothers from all walks of life. Whether you have a support system. We’re here to offer our services to the best of our abilities. At our agency, we offer:

  • Living expenses
  • Housing
  • Medical care
  • And Support 

For the living expenses, if eligible we may assist birth mothers with financial help. We know pregnancy comes with expenses not every birth mother can cover, which is why we lend our hand to those who need it. 

Not having a support system comes with a need for housing. The birth father may not be in the birth mother’s life. But that doesn’t mean they might not have others around them. Having a place to sleep during pregnancy is a major priority. Pregnancy can be draining to the birth mother. So having a place where they can rest is important to us. 

During the birth, the birth mother will need to do routine check-ups. To check up on the progress of the pregnancy. Health care is expensive, and not everyone can afford it. Birth mothers have access to medical care during the pregnancy. It is important to us. At our agency, birth mothers are our major priority, next to the birth child themselves. 

Last, the birth mother’s life still continues even though they’re pregnant. They needed unplanned pregnancy help, which is why they contacted an adoption agency to find that help. At Adoption Choices of Texas, we offer support when needed. We can’t help birth mothers if they don’t reach out, so if you’re in a situation where the birth father is unsupportive or unknown. You can reach us on our website to know more. 

Does the birth father need to consent to the adoption?

In Texas, if the birth father isn’t on the birth certificate because he is unknown or if his parental rights are terminated, the birth mother doesn’t need their permission. Since this is an unplanned pregnancy, it’s likely the birth father is unknown or unsupportive of the pregnancy, which is why the birth mother is putting child up for adoption .

As a result, when the baby is born. The birth father that’s unknown or unsupportive. Won’t be on the birth certificate. Since that is the case, the birth mother doesn’t need the birth father’s consent to proceed with an adoption. 

Is counseling available for single birth mothers?

At our agency, birth mothers are the main priority. Suppose they’re going through the adoption process alone. They’ll likely need all the help they can get. So, counseling is available for all birth mothers if needed. 

As a birth mother going through unplanned pregnancy alone, you’re likely going to be having feelings of stress. Feeling like your back is against the wall with all the stress of pregnancy. No matter the situation, our counselors will guide you through it. If you just need an ear to talk to. Our counselors will be that ear.

If you need unplanned pregnancy help concerning the adoption process. Since you might be doing it alone, you can call us, and you’ll be guided to our adoption agents. Or, if you need counseling, you’ll be guided in that direction as well. Never feel like you have to do this alone. We’re here to help you. Every step of the way.
