What are My Unplanned Pregnancy Options in CO
The first step in getting started is to contact Adoption Choices of Colorado and understand the step-by-step adoption process. The first priority that must be taken care of is what kind of adoption is right for you. There are three adoption options for someone who has an unplanned pregnancy.
Open adoption is when you have knowledge of your adoptive parents’ personal life, including their basic information such as their name, medical, and their address. As a result, there is more consistent communication between you, your child, and the adoptive parents. You can schedule visits, video calls, phone calls, write letters, and send pictures through our agency. The adoptive parents can also initiate these communications as well.
Closed adoption is when the adoptive parents’ only information about you is your name. Keep in mind that they can request to see your medical history if it has to do with the child, such as allergies or family medical history. You won’t know anything about the adoptive family’s personal life, such as their address or occupations. There is no communication between you or the adoptive parents. Depending on your situation, you may have some privacy or think it’s best not to get involved. Then this adoption option is right for you.
Semi-open adoption is when you can set boundaries with communication with the adoptive parents. Some of the personal information you choose to share will be given to the adoptive family and vice versa. Through our agency, you can set up communication with your child and adoptive family through video and phone calls, letters, and emails. It’s not as frequent as open adoption. You get to choose your own pace of communication.

Counseling can be a great way to focus on your mental health, adjusting, and accepting the adoption journey. It can be challenging tackling the mixed emotions that go on in your head while trying to plan out your adoption plan. To get some hold on what you are feeling and working towards moving forward, having counseling can help. We provide free group and one-on-one sessions. These counseling sessions can go on as long as you want. Before your child is adopted, even after the adoption process is complete, we are here when you need to vent or discuss deep concerns you may have.
Group Counseling is a great way to meet other birth mothers just like you, who have gone through similar experiences. You may have issues and other emotions you need to work through during this process. Having an unplanned pregnancy can be difficult for many. To have several ears and voices understand the exact situation you are in makes it easier to process and go through what can be done to move forward.
Medical appointments are one of the priorities during an adoption process. You want to make sure the baby is healthy and that you’re taking care of your body. However, you may need financial support for transportation. Adoption Choices of Colorado provides you with support for this service. The adoptive family can also help by paying for your transportation such as bus fare, cab, or car service. We want you to receive the proper treatment and care for your overall health. Having constant medical checkups is the way to go.
Finding a Doctor is another service we provide. You may not be able to afford out-of-pocket care. You may not have insurance or a doctor to go to. We give you a list of potential options and choose the doctor you are comfortable with. They will be your primary doctor during this pregnancy. We can help pay for the consistent checkups so your baby is healthy and your body is healthy.
Financial Support can be used for rent, housing, maternity clothes, groceries, and anything for the baby’s needs after. If you are having any trouble supporting yourself during this adoption process, we will not hesitate to lend a hand and provide support. You are not alone. Adoption Choices of Colorado will be there for you every step of the way.
Grants and Loans can be used if you are looking for job placement during or after the pregnancy. Depending on your circumstance, you may need these loans or grants for financial support and to get back on your own feet.
Having all these options in Adoption Choices of Colorado should help set your mind at ease and to begin planning your adoption in Denver. If you were lost or confused about how to handle your unplanned pregnancy, we hope these steps can assist in making the right decision for yourself.
