Colorado Adoption Agency Support After Adoption Placement
By Kaitlyn Chrisemer
Many people don’t anticipate the difficulties that can come up after adoption placement. People are often so caught up in the adoption process and adoption plan that they don’t think of the aftermath. Since the adoption pregnancy is so intense, the post-birth portion of this journey may be neglected.
The adoption journey doesn’t end once the adoption is finalized. Your life will continue to be influenced by this decision, possibly for the rest of your life. However, this doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You can accept your decision and allow yourself to feel everything you need without shame or guilt. Remember that giving up a baby for adoption isn’t giving up. Adoption Choices of Colorado is here to help you with every part of your adoption journey, including after adoption finalization.
If you need adoption help now, please call or text us at 303-670-4673 (HOPE) or visit us at Adoption Choices of Colorado.
When to Reach Out for Adoption Help
Deciding when to reach out can be difficult. Maybe you’re sad and struggling but aren’t sure it’s worth bringing up. You might feel ashamed for thinking you need help. If you think you can get through this time alone, that’s great. However, don’t hesitate to reach out if you’re struggling and need help. Adoption Choices of Colorado provides judgment-free help at any point in your adoption journey. Even if it’s been a while since your adoption finalization, and you’re just beginning to feel the effects, we’ll help. Everyone’s adoption journey is different, and every individual is unique. So never feel bad about asking for help if you find yourself struggling after the adoption placement.
Therapy and Adoption Counseling
Our adoption agencies in Colorado offer counseling and therapy after placement and throughout the adoption process. If you think you would benefit from professional help, don’t hesitate to reach out. We can connect you with a counselor to discuss your feelings about your adoption.
Whether you had a closed adoption or open adoption, there are different challenges to both. Our counselors can offer specialized therapy, personalized and catered to your situation and needs. We never want you to feel like we only care about finalizing the adoption. At Adoption Choices of Colorado, we truly care about your well-being. We want what is best for you, whatever you decide that is.
Our adoption agencies can also direct you to group counseling sessions. If you are experiencing strong feelings of grief after your adoption finalization, a group therapy meeting may help. You’ll connect with other people who have gone through similar situations and are feeling like you. This can help you feel comforted and reassured that you aren’t alone in your feelings. In addition, it can provide you with the means to validate your feelings so you can begin to process them.
Finding Financial Support During Your Adoption Journey
Adoption Choices of Colorado knows that pregnancy can present financial problems. Unfortunately, for many birth parents, financial concerns play into their decision to place the baby for adoption. If you’re feeling financial pressure and require assistance, reach out to us. We may be able to help you and relieve some of your financial stress.
We can help eligible birth mothers with rent, utilities, and food expenses. If you need help with these essentials, let us know. It’s also possible that between our agency and the adoptive family, you could also get other court-approved expenses covered. These expenses could include medical and prenatal care.
Depending on your level of need, some government-run financial assistance programs may be able to help. Each of these programs has its own requirements for eligibility. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helps people in Colorado with food assistance. The Women, Infants & Children Program can also help with food assistance, nutrition education, and breastfeeding counseling. If you need financial support throughout your adoption pregnancy, reach out to us and/or one of these programs. We’re here for you.
