What does the adoption process in Colorado look like?

Colorado is similar to other states. There’s a process birth parent(s) go through when placing their birth child up for a Denver Adoption. It’s called the adoption process. In this process, there are steps that the adoption agent will walk you through. The steps in the adoption process are:

  • 1st: Pick and review which type of adoption you’d like to go with
  • 2nd: Pick and review the different adoptive parent (s) available
  • 3rd: Creating a hospital birth plan for your delivery 
  • 4th: Deciding whether or not you’d like to receive post-placement counseling 

What are the different types of adoptions to choose from?

When it comes to placing a child up for adoption, there are three different types to choose from. First, there is Open adoption which depends on the relationship you’d like to have with the birth child and the adoptive parent (s). You can choose this one. In this adoption, their contact information will be shared. So that the adoptive parent (s) can contact you and vice versa. You’ll be able to:

  • Receive pictures of the birth child from the adoptive parent (s)
  • Contact the birth child through email, messenger, or phone call
  • If the adoptive parent (s) allowed it, there could even be visits to the adoptive parent (s) House

Next, there is semi-open adoption. Hence, the name not everything is open, like an open adoption. However, unlike in open adoption, e-contact information will be shared in this adoption. The birth parent (s) and the adoptive parent (s). Any communication between the two will be forwarded through the Adoption Choices of Colorado. This adoption choice is for birth parents (s) who don’t want to have a relationship with the adoptive parent (s).

Finally, with closed adoption. This is chosen when the birth parent (s) leave the adoption process to the adoption agency. They have decided that placing the child up for adoption is all they’d like to do. So, anything ranging from picking and reviewing the adoptive parent (s) to seeing the birth child after birth. It is out the window for them. 

What are some hardships birth mothers may experience when choosing adoption?

Like everything in life, there will be some hardships at times. When it comes to adoption, people have never had to deal with it. Will start making the birth mother believe they were giving their baby up for adoption. Instead of placing your baby for adoption. People have based everything they know about adoption on misconceptions. Will start to:

  • Make the birth mother feel like a horrible birth mother
  • Tell the birth mother they shouldn’t have gone through the adoption process
  • That if they had been more careful, this wouldn’t have happened

Another main hardship birth mothers may experience unwanted emotions. For some birth mothers, the unwanted emotions don’t come until they’ve decided they want to start a family. Later on in the future. For others, the unwanted emotions are instant. The minute the birth child has been adopted. They sometimes feel:

  • Regret
  • Guilt 
  • Sadness 
  • Shame

This is because of the birth mothers who have decided to start a family again. They’ll start to think of the birth child and how they’d feel. For the ones who are instantly hit with unwanted emotions. They will start to:

  • Think about how the birth child feels
  • Wonder if the birth child thinks bad about the birth mother
  • Wonder, if given a chance, will the birth child want to see the birth mother again

What are the benefits of choosing private adoption in Colorado?

  • It’s faster than public adoption since the birth parent (s) get to control their experience
  • Gives the birth parent (s) a chance to choose the adoptive parent (s)
  • The birth parent (s) can choose the type of adoption they’d like
