It’s Never Too Late to Choose Adoption for Your Baby
By Elle Kerrigan
Unplanned pregnancy presents many unanswered questions. “Where do I even begin with the adoption process? What regulations do I need to keep in mind? Am I making the right decision? And how late is too late to choose adoption?” These questions can be answered with the help of Adoption Choices of Colorado. For starters, there is always time to choose adoption. We have helped many women complete last-minute adoptions since 2002. Our agency is non-profit and licensed by Colorado, and our team of specialists cares deeply about your and your baby’s future. Adoptions later in pregnancy or even from the hospital are totally possible and common. You do not have to seek adoption in Colorado alone.
Benefits of Choosing Private Adoption in Colorado
- You are giving adoptive parents their biggest dream – Our adoptive families want nothing more than to add a child to their family. Just like you, they have chosen adoption due to varying circumstances. You are providing a lifetime of happiness by choosing to place your baby for adoption.
- You are investing in your future – No matter the reason, you do not have to raise your baby if you do not want to. Adoption is a great option for those in this situation. You are directly investing in your future by making the best choice for you. You don’t have to feel shame about considering your own future when making a big decision like this.
- You are giving your child a happy childhood – Colorado adoption laws require a process of home check-ins before the adoption is finalized. Officials make sure that the child is well-adjusted and happy in their new home before it becomes permanent. Your child deserves a family that is excited about raising them.
- The process is filled with support – Placing your baby for adoption may feel lonely at times, but we want you to know that you have endless support through our agency. Not only do we assist you throughout the entire process, but there is also counseling available to you. You can attend this during or after your adoption is complete to unpack any emotions that can arise. Many birth mothers find it helpful to speak to others who have also faced unplanned pregnancies or adoptions. Support groups are a great option for this. There is also financial assistance available for living expenses and medical bills. You will never be alone during the adoption process.
A last-minute adoption works very similarly to those that begin earlier in pregnancy. Adoption in Colorado is a straightforward process. The first thing you will need to do is contact us. You can e-mail, call, or text us anytime – even from the hospital. A specialist will then be connected with you to create an adoption plan. The adoption plan is a tool to help you organize each step of the process. You can decide what type of adoption is best for you, pick the adoptive family, and discuss post-placement support. You can have an open, semi-open, or closed adoption.
This will determine the amount of contact you have with your baby and their adoptive family in the future. There is no wrong answer to this question. It all depends on what you feel is best for you. Your specialist will be sure to inform you about any necessary paperwork. If you want to meet your adoptive family, they can meet you at the hospital. This is up to you.
Our waiting families are able to be at the hospital within hours. This is a really exciting time for them, and they know all about last-minute adoptions. Your specialist will stay in contact with you after you have left the hospital for as long as you need. Adoption Choices of Colorado will ensure that you have the proper after-care and that the adoption process is completed in full.
