Creating A Colorado Adoption Plan for An Unplanned Pregnancy
If you face an unplanned pregnancy and struggle with the options, you can utilize them during such a stressful moment. You should know you have three options. The first is to raise the child as your own. Just know before deciding this, you will face certain hardships if you don’t have the physical, financial, or emotionally prepared for a child. You have other options as well, with one being terminating the pregnancy. That means you will not give birth to the child, ending your pregnancy and carrying the child. Though you are ending the pregnancy, you can face mental issues because you may feel guilt or more over a decision. The final option is adoption, where we, Adoption Choices of Colorado, come in. Adoption is a lengthy and legal process when you relinquish your rights as the birth mother. From there, your child shall be placed into another family, and they will be raised as their child. It is a process thousands of mothers take advantage of yearly to provide a better life for their baby.
At Adoption Choices of Colorado, we are a private adoption agency with locations in Colorado, including Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs. By serving local women in said state, we help build families and give a better life to the birth mother and her unborn baby. We understand that adoption has a negative stigma surrounding it, but our goal is to end such. Never hesitate to put your baby up for adoption because of the judgment. Just know you are doing the right thing.
What is an adoption plan?
An adoption plan is thoroughly written and thought out by you alone with some input and help from your counselor, but the decisions are particularly yours. Specifically, it is a profile of your wants and needs that you find necessary to be best for you and your baby during the adoption process. Not to mention it includes the plans for you after the baby is born and is placed into the care of their adoptive parents. The adoption plan may be written before you even come to an adoption agency and will include the adoption agency you want to go to. Not to mention it will have more than that and the Colorado adoption process. It will include details about the traits you want your baby’s adoptive family to possess. More would be the form of adoption you want to choose. To add on, counseling, finance, and more. Your hospital plan is a vital point you need due to the sensitivity and the settings you will be in. Lastly, in the outline of your adoption plan, you can go into detail about if you want post-placement support, which can mentally help you if necessary.
An adoption plan is important for every birth mother, but know you shouldn’t be stressed or discouraged while creating such.
What are the different forms of adoption?
There are three different types of adoption: closed, semi-open, and open. They all possess some similarities but differences as well. As the birth mother, you are in full control of the type of adoption you want to utilize, but make sure you are set and stone about such. Choosing the type of adoption will be taken into account the whole time during your Colorado adoption process. Once over, when the baby is born, it still is taken into account.
Closed Adoption: As a more private form of adoption, Closed Adoption is when there is no contact between yourself or the adoptive parents of your baby. You are allowed to pick your baby’s adoptive parents, but there will be a limited amount of information provided on them. To add on, your adoption counselor will be the mediator between all the parties and shall share dialogue between you all. Once the baby is in the custody of their adoptive parent’s contact shall be extinguished, but the parents of your child may send photos but through your counselor. Though it is a guarantee at all this particular act will happen
Semi-Open Adoption: A type of adoption that is a mixture between both other adoptions. You are allowed to choose your baby’s adoptive family, but with little to no information. Your counselor will facilitate conferences, but you will not meet in person at all. Your identities will be shared with each party but with practically no details. Once the adoption is complete, you will have no contact, but your baby’s adoptive parents will share updates on your child. That will more than likely be in the form of photos.
Open Adoption: The most open form of adoption where communication transpired between yourself and your baby’s adoptive parents in person. Information about all of you is shared, including last names, addresses, and more. There shall be no limitation on the information you all possess. Once the adoption is complete, you will still have contact with each other in different forms of communication. In some cases, the birth mother becomes part of the family.
Always choose the type of adoption that best fits your wants and needs! That’s what we care about the most.
