Considering My Colorado Adoption Choices

By Wendy Swisher

An unplanned pregnancy comes with a lot of unknowns. After the initial shock wears off, you will decide what your next steps are. With an unexpected pregnancy you have three options: parent, terminate, adoption.

If you need adoption help now, please call or text us at 303-670-4673 (HOPE) or visit us at Adoption Choices of Colorado.

Pregnancy Options in Denver

The first is to parent your child. What this means is you would be responsible for their upbringing. Teaching the right from wrong and molding them into adults who will have a productive life. Maybe you do not feel you are ready to be a parent or there may be several other reasons why raising your child is not a choice. 

Your second option would be terminating the pregnancy. With the Roe vs Wade decision being overturned in the Supreme Court the laws are different from state to state now. In Colorado you can legally terminate your pregnancy by a licensed physician within the first twenty-four weeks of pregnancy. Not everybody is comfortable with this option because of their religious or personal beliefs. That is why the third option of adoption in Colorado may be the best choice for you. 

Adoption allows you to provide a couple the chance to be parents and love your child as their own. If a Colorado adoption is right for you and you are looking for a Local adoption agency, then call us today at Adoption Choices of Colorado

Adoption Choices of Colorado Services

We can help you with any questions you may have regarding adoption. We know you are making a tough decision, but we are here to help. To start the adoption process, pick up the phone and call us today. One of our birth parent counselors can help you through the adoption process. The birth parent counselor will first get to know you and your situation, so they can help you form an adoption plan that suits the needs of you and your child. 

One of the first decisions you will make after that is what type of adoption you would like; open, semi-open, or closed. The one you choose depends on the level of contacts you want to have with your child and the birth parents. For you to make this decision you need to know what each adoption type is and if it suits you. 

Types of Adoption in Colorado

With an open adoption it allows you to stay in contact with the adoptive parents. You can receive updates and pictures as your baby grows. Also visits and phone calls can be arranged if the adoptive family is ok with them. 

With a semi-open adoption you can still receive updates but everything is done through the agency. 

In closed adoptions, there is no contact between the birth and adoptive parents. A closed adoption is for people who want closure on their end because it may be too hard to see their child with someone else. Those feelings are completely valid and understandable. Basically the type of adoption depends on the level of contact you want. In the final adoption plan everything will be decided down to post-placement contact. This way there is no confusion. 

Choosing an Adoptive Family in Colorado and More Adoption Choices

After you have decided the type of adoption and services you need, you will then pick a family to adopt you baby. Your adoption birth counselor will provide you with files of potential adoptive families. Sift through them and find the family you connect with. A birth plan for the hospital will be created and your birth parent counselor will be there to advocate for you. They will see the plan executed the way you want it and help with any issues that arise during your stay in the hospital. 

Our agency also provides financial assistance for things like bills, groceries, and medical expenses. Everyone goes through hard times and needs a little extra help to keep a roof over their heads and food in their stomach. We may be able to help ease this burden. We also provide help in finding a good prenatal doctor. Someone who will oversee the health of you and your baby. Another service offered is counseling to help you deal with all the emotions you are experiencing during your journey. We know giving up a child for adoption is a hard decision and you will experience a wide range of emotions. It is good to have someone to help you navigate your feelings and give you useful tools to help work through them.
