Now, let’s talk about placing your baby for adoption at six months pregnant.
Can I put a child up for adoption at 6 Months Pregnant?
Yes! Or, at least, you can get started on the process. Beginning the adoption process early on can help you destress because it lets you see the end of the road. You will work on your adoption plan and choose what you want life for you and your birth child to look like after your baby is born.
What Resources Are Available to Me Throughout the Adoption Process?
At the start of your adoption process, we will assign an adoption professional to help you with your adoption plan. You will also have access to many of our other services, including legal and financial assistance. Our Adoption Choices of Colorado staff wants to ensure your adoption process goes smoothly. They want to help you in any way they can.
What Is the Colorado Adoption Intake Process at 6 Months Pregnant?
The adoption intake process occurs when you schedule a phone in-person meeting with us. At this meeting, we’ll ask you to fill out some paperwork, including medical history documents, and make some choices regarding your adoption plan, including your preferred level of openness and type of adoptive family. We will also ask you o sign some forms which will allow us to obtain the proper medical records.
Choosing a Type of Adoption at Your Adoption Agency in Denver
When filling out your adoption plan, you must decide what level of openness you prefer in your adoption, open, semi-open, or closed. Each type refers to the amount of communication you want to have with your birth child and their adoptive family after the adoption finalizes. An open adoption allows for direct contact between you and the adoptive family. With open adoption, you will work together to determine boundaries and times when you can see your birth child. In a semi-open adoption, all communication with the adoptive family occurs through your Colorado adoption agency. In a closed adoption, you have no contact with your birth child or their adoptive family. You will have total anonymity.
Matching With an Adoptive Family Through Your Colorado Adoption Agency
While filling out your adoption plan, you decide what kind of family you would like to adopt your child. Some birth mothers prefer a family with a certain cultural background, lifestyle, or religion. Others consider parenting styles or whether the family in question already has kids. If you choose an open adoption, you can look through the adoptive family profiles on our website and select the one you think would be a good fit.
Finalizing Your Adoption Papers in Colorado
After you give birth to your child, you will have to wait two days before you can sign the final adoption papers. But, afterward, the adoption is complete, and your birth child can go home with their adoptive family.
What Will My Life Look Like After the Adoption Process?
After the adoption process, some birth mothers experience some grief. However, Adoption Choices of Colorado provides services even after your adoption finalizes. We offer counseling and support groups for all birth parents, so you can find solace and growth in talking to people who have experienced the same things you have.
Remember: adoption is generous. You are not “giving your baby up” for adoption at birth. You are placing them for adoption. There is no “giving up” involved. Creating an adoption plan takes a lot of thought. You want to make the best choices for your birth child.
