Is it Hard to Put a Newborn Baby Up for Adoption?

American Adoptions Will Make This Process as Easy on You as Possible

If you are considering adoption for your baby, you have likely read detailed accounts of the adoption process. But you may be wondering, what is it really like to go through this process as a prospective birth mother? Is it hard to put a baby up for adoption?

The truth is it can be very emotionally difficult, not only to make an adoption decision and complete the adoption process, but also to adjust to life after placement. In fact, for many women facing an unplanned pregnancy, this can be one of the most challenging decisions and experiences of a lifetime.

While American Adoptions cannot completely erase the pain and difficulty of placement, we do offer a wealth of services and resources to help make this process easier. Here, learn more about the support you can expect from American Adoptions when making an adoption plan for your baby.  

How easy is the process of putting a baby up for adoption?

Adoption can be an emotionally and legally complicated process, but you will have your own adoption specialist to guide you through each step of the way. This licensed professional will help you explore all of your options, provide the emotional counseling and support you need, and do everything he or she can to make the adoption process as smooth as possible for you.

With American Adoptions, you can expect the following resources and support throughout the adoption process:

  • Financial assistance: You are making an incredibly important decision, and financial concerns should not be adding to your stress. All of American Adoptions’ services are offered at no cost to you, and you may also get help paying certain living expenses during your pregnancy.
  • 24/7 support: Your adoption specialist will be available to you any time, day or night, to provide the emotional support and counseling you need — when you need it.
  • Adoption planning: Through careful adoption planning, you can choose the adoption situation that is right for you and your baby. With this adoption plan in place, you can rest assured knowing that the details of the adoption will be handled and of your wishes will be followed.
  • Ongoing support: American Adoptions’ services do not end with placement. Your adoption specialist will continue to be available to offer the ongoing counseling and support you may need after the adoption.
  • Post-placement correspondence: All of our adoptive families are committed to sending you pictures and letters for the next 18 years, so you can always know your child and remain an important part of his or her life. While making an adoption decision is rarely easy, sometimes knowing that you can keep in touch with your child can make it easier to process your feelings of grief and loss.

Your adoption specialist is committed to helping you feel as comfortable as possible during the adoption process. These are just some of the services American Adoptions provides to make your adoption experience easier.
