It's common for women learning the news of their unplanned pregnancy to feel out of control and unsure of what to do next.
For the ones who decide to explore adoption, they begin to realize how much control they have over the process, and how much control they begin realizing in their own lives.
If you decide to move forward with an adoption, you may ask yourself:
What kind of adoptive family do I want for my child? A big family? A small family? A family that lives in the city, or a family that lives in the country? A religious family or a non-religious family? A family of doctors? Teachers? A stay-at-home mom?
What kind of contact do I want with the adoptive family before the birth of my baby? Phone calls? Emails? Visits?
What kind of contact do I want with my child and the adoptive family after the adoption? Pictures and letters? Phone calls? Visits?
How do I envision my hospital stay? Is the adoptive family there? Are members of my family there? How much interaction do I want with my baby?
Your decisions to these questions form what we refer to as your “adoption plan," which is essentially a roadmap drawn by you that provides us directions toward your perfect adoption.
You will work closely with your Adoption Specialist to form an adoption plan to ensure all of your wishes are met throughout this emotional time.
