Are There Requirements for Placing a Baby Up for Adoption in CO?
Having an unplanned pregnancy can cause a lot of shock and many questions. You may have decided to choose adoption but still have no idea how to get started or what the process entails. If you are a birth mother living in the state of Colorado, let us assure you that at Adoption Choices of Colorado, we will answer your questions and explain the adoption process step by step. You may be wondering, “are there any requirements for placing my baby up for adoption?” the answer is no, there isn’t. There are no specific requirements of any kind for someone to choose adoption. At any age, any time during pregnancy. Even after the baby is born, adoption is an option.
How Can I Start My Colorado Adoption Plan?
The first step is to plan your adoption. As the birth mother, you have full control of all the decisions that are being made, including who you choose as the adoptive family. Let’s begin with knowing the adoption types.
There are three adoption types you can choose from, depending on what you think is best for yourself and the child. It’s a hard decision to take all the time you need. Based on your preferences, we will provide adoptive family candidates that would be a good match for what you are looking for. Once you have found who you think will take care of your child best, they must agree upon the type of adoption you chose.
- Open Adoption is when you want to have a more personal connection with your child and with the adoptive family. You can set the boundaries and conditions of contact and communication. We can help arrange phone and video calls, in-person visits, letters, and more.
- Closed Adoption if you feel that not having contact with the adoptive family or your child is something that is best for your circumstances, then this adoption choice is for you. No forms of contact or communication will be established between the two parties. You don’t want to know any personal information about the adoptive family. You just want to give the child a loving home after they are born.
- Semi-Open Adoption If you would like some form of a relationship with your child and the adoptive family but don’t want to get too personal. You can place boundaries on what communication you are comfortable with. Just know that options of contact from open adoption are available to you. You decide what you want. If you would rather receive daily updates on your child’s upbringing without contact, letters, emails, and photos can be sent to you via our adoption agencies in Denver and throughout Colorado.
