Pregnant, Homeless, and Colorado Adoption
Unplanned pregnancycan be a very scary and worrisome time for a lot of birth mothers. Everyone has something else going on in their life and sometimes may feel that pregnancy is the last thing they can handle. It is a lot of work and a long process to go through. There are endless doctor visits sleepless nights, and it is an emotional rollercoaster. It is hard to imagine juggling all of that while being homeless. You are not in an ideal situation nor a safe environment. We understand that all you want is for your child to be safe and healthy. At Adoption Choices of Colorado, we are more than happy to help set you up in an environment acceptable enough to carry out the terms of your pregnancy. All we want is for you to deliver a happy and healthy baby while keeping yourself physically and mentally healthy at the same time.
Adoption Choices of Colorado understands that being homeless means that you might not have all the resources you need to carry out your pregnancy. That is where we come in and help. We can offer a wide variety of services such as financial assistance, housing, and transportation. Reach out to us so we can get you set up with an adoption specialist that will cater to your needs and explain all of your options to you.
Financial Assistance During Your Pregnancy
If you are homeless, it is unreasonable to expect that you have health insurance, but that is okay! There are many birth mothers out there that are unable to afford it, so we point them in the right direction. You can actually get assistance through Medicaid, which will cover most of your prenatal care and the delivery of your baby. Now you might be thinking, what about all the other medical expenses and doctor’s visits? Adoption Choices of Colorado has you covered. Once you create an adoption plan with us and find an adoptive family, they will pay for all of the outstanding expenses. Keep in mind that putting your child up for adoption is not and should not cost you anything.
Medicaid is not the only financial assistance option that you have available to you. Colorado also has a plan that is known as Colorado 211. It helps you pay your monthly bills or other expenses. You will be provided with a personal financial counselor that will help point you in the right direction. They will complete an assessment of your income, expenses, debts, and taxes to create a short-term plan.
Birth Mother Housing Assistance
With our adoption agencies in Denver and throughout Colorado, you will be provided with utmost care. Being homeless means that you need proper housing to provide you and your baby with a healthy and safe environment. We want to ensure that you both are well taken care of during your pregnancy. Our housing can also act as a temporary situation until you are able to fully get on your feet again. Expenses that we cover include, but are not limited to, rent, utilities, and phone. If you have any questions regarding your eligibility for housing assistance, please contact us to speak to an adoption specialist and share your situation. There is always someone there to help.
Moving Forward with You Colorado Adoption Process
You are never alone, and there are resources available to you. It can be hard to find them on your own, which is why we encourage you to reach out so we can assist you. We want you to be able to make well-informed decisions throughout your pregnancy. Our biggest concern is the health and safety of you and your baby. Therefore, our mission is to ensure that you have all the necessary resources and a safe living environment for you and your baby to grow during this time. We are here to help you during birth as well as after. Even after the post-placement of your child, we will continue to support you and help you get back on your feet.
