1. I can’t decide who will adopt my child
Adoption agencies make this decision easier for you and outline your options based on what you feel comfortable with. This decision begins with deciding which adoption option would fit your needs. There are three main options: open adoption, closed adoption, and semi-adoption. Each allows for different selections of an adopting family.
- Open adoptions allow you to select and meet the adopting family. Then, you can create a contract with them to determine what works best for you.
- Semi-open adoptions do not allow you to meet the family, but you will be able to view the household research provided to you by adopting agents.
- Closed adoptions have the adoption agency choose the best family for you so that you do not have to worry about selections for your baby.
2. I won’t be able to see my child after the adoption
This is dependent on which adoption option you choose. In a closed adoption, you will not be able to see your child again. Other than that, the other two adoption options open the door to seeing your child. In an open adoption, you can make an adoption plan with the adopting family so that you could meet with your child in the future and be part of their life if you both can agree upon this. In a semi-closed adoption, you will not be able to meet the adopting family, but you will still be able to see your child grow up through pictures that the family can supply you.
3. The adoption specialist can’t help me
This is not true. Adopting agents are experienced in adoption law and building adoption plans. They can help determine the best fit for your child based on your preferences. An adoption specialist has knowledge in communicating between families and determining families that can properly care for a child. They have conducted household research on each of the families that have applied for adoption and will be able to share their thoughts if you need their help. These people have helped many mothers through an unplanned pregnancy, and they will be able to help you through these difficult decisions.
4. What if adoption isn’t right for me?
This may be the case, but a family is out there that can support, care for, and love your child. Adoption is not for one singular person since it is here to help in cases of unwanted or unplanned pregnancies. When these are the cases, you need to look at what you can provide for a child. Can you feed your child, spend time with your child, and be there in times of need? Adoption is open to everyone because there are families out there that can support your child and want to help. Adoption agents ensure that adopting families have an income that can support a child and have the time to raise your child into a great person.
