Unplanned Pregnancy Support

Creating Your Unplanned Pregnancy Plan

As a birth mother, the decision to choose adoption is not an easy one to make on your own. Although placing a baby for adoption may be a difficult choice, we will be there to provide support, including counseling if you would like. We understand how important it is for you to stay healthy and well taken care of, and we are here to support you through your adoption plan. We want to help you customize a plan that you are 100% comfortable with. Counseling and legal representation is provided to you at no cost. We also have many resources to help you during and after the placement of your child.

We provide counseling to you as the birth mother, the birth father if he is interested as well as your family and other children. We want you to have a great support system and we believe that helping others around you understand adoption and what the future brings sets you up for success.

Our agency will provide court approved living expenses for birth mothers who need the help. We can help with expenses such as rent, utilities, food, sundries, and your phone bill. We understand how difficult it is to get back on your feet and return to work after delivering a baby and we want to help you as much as possible. Depending on your State of residence, the amount of court approved expenses may vary.

We will help you find assistance in paying the medical expenses that are a result of your pregnancy and delivery. The portion of your medical expenses that is not covered by private insurance or state funding will be provided by the adoptive family. Your worker is available to help with finding and scheduling prenatal appointments as well as setting up a hospital tour if you are interested. Also available to you is a Lamaze/Birthing Education Coach through our agency. She is available to you and can do private classes to help you feel comfortable and ready for delivery.

We can help you find or apply for housing, and help with paying your rent during your pregnancy and up to four to six weeks after your delivery. We want you to feel safe and secure in your living situation and help provide shelter to you and your family.

 

Your worker will help you with transportation to your doctor appointments, to pick up your prescription and to take you to any legal representation appointments. They are also available to help with transportation to apply for Medicaid, food stamps, employment or furthering your education. If further assistance is needed, i.e., trips to the grocery store or a ride to work, your worker is happy to help arrange that for you or provide a bus pass if you choose.

COMMON QUESTIONS

Why choose adoption?

When facing an unplanned pregnancy, adoption is a positive alternative and one that we encourage you to consider along with your other options. There is no set structure for an adoption, instead we work to ensure that your adoption plan fits your wants and needs as a birth mother and is in the best interest both you and the baby.

Who will help me to understand my decision to place my child for adoption?

The decision to choose adoption is not an easy one to make on your own. Although it may be a difficult and painful choice, we will be there to provide support, including counseling if you would like.

Can I choose the adoptive family of my child?

Yes, you have the option of approving the parents who will be adopting your baby. Each family makes a picture profile, which is a mini-scrap book that tells you about their lives. The profiles we will present to you are filled with photos of the family, their vacations, their home and lots more. It will also include a “Dear Birth Mother” letter that addresses other frequently asked questions such as their likes and dislikes, hobbies, etc…

How do I know the adoptive family will provide a safe environment in which to raise my child?

All of our prospective adoptive parents go through extensive background checks. Case workers meet them in their homes to interview them. The couples are required to provide a State Bureau of Investigation report and a child abuse clearance report as well as birth certificates, a copy of their marriage license, physician’s reports that include HIV test results, etc… Adoptive families are carefully screened.

Can the agency help me with living expenses if I am unable to work?

The agency will provide court approved living expenses to birth mothers who need the help. We understand how difficult it is to get back on your feet and return to work after delivering a baby.

Fortunately for me I was no stranger to adoption. I was adopted and my mother, my sister and my aunt have all placed a baby for adoption. It didn’t make my decision any easier, I was just more familiar with the process. I knew a lot more clearly than some, that placing your baby for adoption doesn’t mean giving up on your baby, it just means you want a better life for your baby. . . . Read more

Thinking of my options due to an unplanned pregnancy, I came to the adoption journey scared, feeling alone, and no where to turn. After talking to and meeting with Christy, my fears and uncertainty seems to disappear. She reassured me that the adoption plan could be anything I wanted, that this was my baby and I could choose what I wanted. I never felt judged or that anyone would be upset with me if I decided to parent my child. After several months of working with Christy, my daughter was born and I got to meet the family that I had picked. . . . Read more
