By Rachel Tonucci

Experiencing an unplanned pregnancy can bring up a range of emotions and concerns that may seem overwhelming and impossible to overcome. You may be thinking, “Is adoption for my baby the right choice?” Even if you are not sure what your final decision will be, you do not have to make it alone. Top adoption agencies like Adoption Choices of Colorado play a crucial role in helping birth mothers navigate the adoption process. We empower you by providing adoption options that best fit your needs in a compassionate, non-judgmental environment.

What’s Involved in the Colorado Adoption Process

If you are pregnant and considering adoption, you likely have many questions about the process. There are also new physical, emotional, and financial strains on you that adoption agencies can help ease. Here, we offer a clear and informative guide to empowering individuals and families considering adoption in Colorado. 

After researching top adoption agencies in Colorado, contact Adoption Choices of Colorado. There is no obligation or fee for contacting us. Caring adoption specialists will work with you to create an adoption plan that fits your needs. Rest assured, creating an adoption plan can be done at any time during or after your pregnancy. You will get help creating a budget for financial assistance. You are not charged for medical care or expert legal assistance, nor is there a charge for choosing adoption.

You will be given the opportunity to view family profiles and choose an adoptive family for your baby. Factors such as age, culture, religion, length of the marriage, and other children are considered. You will be able to choose between a closed, semi-open, or open adoption, depending on what is right for you. In semi-open or open adoptions, you may have a relationship with your child and the adoptive family. You will establish a hospital and birth plan that is customized to your needs. 

During the entire process, you’ll receive 24/7 ongoing counseling and emotional support from our trained, compassionate staff. After creating your adoption plan, you will undergo the pregnancy, birth, and relinquishment process. You can change your mind about adoption at any time up until signing the final relinquishment paperwork after birth. After the baby is born, you’ll receive post-placement assistance and support to help you process the transition. Monthly support groups for birth mothers with dinner and childcare are available.

Key Milestones and Steps in Considering Adoption

Have you thought, “I want to put my child up for adoption, but I don’t know what steps to take? First, contact Adoption Choices of Colorado to set up an initial meeting. Then complete the following steps: 

  • Assess health care and financial assistance needs. We can assist with rent and food during the pregnancy and up to four to six weeks after the birth. If you don’t have a safe place to stay during your pregnancy, we will assist you in finding one. Prenatal care and medical expenses during your pregnancy and delivery are covered.
  • Select a type of adoption. In a fully open adoption, you can maintain an ongoing relationship with your child and the adoptive family. You each have direct contact with one another. In a semi-open adoption, the agency acts as a facilitator between the birth mother and the adoptive family. In a closed adoption, there is no contact with the family or the child. Identities are kept private.
  • Choose an adoptive family. Based on your selected criteria and preferences, the agency will provide family profiles for your review. Everything from the professions of parents to the location of the home to personality is considered.
  • Develop a hospital and birth plan. You will need to document what you want to happen after the baby is born. You will need to consider if you want time alone with the baby after the birth. Decisions such as whether or not you want visitors, photos, and to name the baby will be made.
  • Accept support. Counseling is provided at no cost after the baby is born. We can empower you with information and a support system to ensure a successful future as birth parents.
