Choosing a Denver Adoption as a Teenage Birth Mother

By Kaitlyn Chrisemer

Learning that you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy can be scary. If you’re a teenager, it can be that much more terrifying. When you’re still basically a kid yourself, the thought of raising a child can seem impossible. Maybe you don’t even want to be a mom, let alone a teen mom. But, on the other hand, maybe you want to be a mother someday, but not yet. 

The adoption process can be daunting for anyone considering adoption. If you’re on the young side, it can feel even scarier. You might be stressed about making all these big decisions. Maybe you aren’t even sure where to start. Adoption Choices of Colorado wants you to know that even at a young age, we can assist you. If you just need information or need help placing your baby for adoption, we can help. 

Colorado Adoption Process

Reaching out to our Colorado adoption agency is a good place to start your Denver Adoption process. We can connect you with an adoption specialist who will answer any questions you might have. We’ll advocate for your best interests and listen to your needs so we can make the best adoption plan for you. 

You’ll discuss your situation and needs in your initial meeting with an adoption specialist. This can include prenatal care, help to find living arrangements, and financial assistance. Every adoption is unique since every situation is unique. You’ll also complete some paperwork and start working on your adoption plan

Next, you’ll need to consider what adoption you’d be comfortable with. If you want to have contact with the child or adoptive family after adoption finalization, consider an open adoption. On the other hand, closed adoption might be better for you if you don’t want to be involved in the child’s life. 

Therefore, you’ll be able to choose the adoptive family you want your child to be placed with. If you opt for open adoption, you can meet with the adoptive family to help you decide. We want you to be comfortable with your decisions through this process. The prospective families we show you will meet any special criteria you might have. Your adoption specialist will help you choose the best fit for your child based on your requirements. 

Additionally, Adoption Choices of Colorado will also help you create a hospital plan, so you know what to expect. Any needs or special accommodations you request will be met with the help of your adoption specialist. Making a hospital plan will help you mentally prepare and ensure everyone is on the same page. 

As a Teenage Birth Mother, Can Still Make Adoption Decisions?

Some teens facing an unexpected pregnancy worry they won’t be taken seriously. You might be concerned your needs will be overlooked, or your preferences will be overridden. However, at Adoption Choices of Colorado, we will ensure you’re still in charge. Being young doesn’t mean you can’t be involved in every part of your adoption process

Giving a baby up for adoption is a very difficult and personal decision. Although you are young, your needs will be met, and you will not be pushed to the side. As the birth mother, your voice is the most important in making these decisions. You have the right to be confident in your choices about your adoption. Don’t let anyone stop you from making these decisions. These decisions are about you and the child, so your opinions hold the most weight.
