Building an Adoption Plan for Your Unplanned Pregnancy in Colorado
When you first call Adoption Choices of Colorado, we can immediately get to work organizing a meeting between you and one of our friendly adoption caseworkers. During this meeting, we can teach you about the specificities of the Colorado adoption process and about what services we can provide to you. Remember, meeting with an adoption caseworker doesn’t mean you have to choose adoption! If you meet with a caseworker and decide that adoption isn’t for you, that’s fine too. The first meeting is all about helping you make an informed decision.
Matching You with Financial Resources
Many mothers don’t choose to bring their pregnancy to term because of financial concerns. Especially with teen pregnancy or an unplanned pregnancy in Colorado, mothers worry they won’t be able to pay for a pregnancy. That’s why Adoption Choices of Colorado works to make sure you receive every bit of financial help you deserve. If you’re homeless or can’t work during your program, we will make sure you have reliable housing for the entirety of your pregnancy and some weeks after. Our caseworkers are also experts on local government programs that may be able to help you as well. If healthcare or transportation are concerns, we will make sure those are taken care of. We believe no mother should have to spend time worrying about their next meal when they should be taking care of themselves and their child.
You Choose the Type of Adoption
Domestic adoptions can be done in three different styles depending on your needs. These are an open adoption, a semi-open adoption, and a closed adoption. In an open adoption, you and the adoptive family will share identifiable information with each other. You can interview the adoptive family and may even set up times to see your child occasionally after the adoption. To put it simply, there aren’t any barriers put in place between you and the adoptive family.
In a semi-open adoption, you and the family can still talk before the adoption, but identifiable information may be limited. Still, they can send you pictures and videos of your child through a third party as the child grows up. This option can also be adjusted depending on what you would prefer. These adoption styles all act as a sort of agreement between the birth mother and the adoptive family.
In a closed adoption, almost no information is shared between the birth parents and adoptive parents at all. We don’t usually recommend these, but they remain an option for adoption in Colorado Springs.
Choosing the Adoptive Family
If you would like, you can pick from the variety of adoptive families for your child. Every set of parents has a biography of their lives and some information about their beliefs and hobbies. These all help you get an idea of the environment your child will be going into post-adoption. In an open or semi-open adoption, we can help you set up an interview with adoptive parents to learn a little bit more about them. Getting to talk to the adoptive family is perhaps one of the best ways for you to feel more secure in your choice to put your child up for adoption.

Meet the author: Joshua Boulet is an aspiring journalist and writer with a particular fondness for research and social sciences. He loves music, writing, reading, video games and most art, and anything creative he can get his hands on. Boulet believes that there’s too much good stuff out there and not enough time to see it all. He grew up on video games: the classic Sonic the Hedgehog games, Mario Kart, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and Legend of Zelda. The music of rhythm games led him to an interest in that, and the investigative journalism of Jason Schreier inspired him to discover the importance of journalism as an industry. That interest in developers’ lives led him to an interest in social justice and how the world could maybe be made into a better place. “All this to say, there is certainly a line I can draw between me obsessively playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and me interviewing my sociology professor about how to read academic articles. Those surprising throughlines fascinate me all the same. At my best, I’m a person who gets to be constantly fascinated by the lives and work of other people.”
