Adoption is a loving choice that can bring you on a hopeful journey that is full of opportunity, and when you work with a great agency, creating an adoption plan can be easy.
Read on to learn more about the challenges of making an adoption plan and how you will be supported when you work with American Adoptions, or get help now.
Challenge 1: Deciding on Adoption
Choosing adoption for your pregnancy can be a life-changing decision for you and can affect others too. And for some, this decision can feel overwhelming.
The good news is you never have to make the decision alone, and you can take all of the time you need to learn about the process and decide whether it is a good fit for you. Our professionals are trained as unplanned pregnancy and adoption counselors and can present you with all of your possible options and help answer any questions that may be stuck in your mind.
Ultimately, it may not be an easy decision, but having information and support can help you feel at peace no matter what choice you make.
Challenge 2: Finding the Perfect Family
When you think about adoption, finding the right family can feel like a huge task, but it doesn’t have to be stressful.
Our adoption professionals can connect you with families who have been pre-screened and fit what you are looking for, and the choice is 100% up to you. Once you have met a family who you think is a great match, you can also get to know them and ask them all of the questions you need to feel secure in your decision.
Challenge 3: Navigating Your Emotions
Adoption is not always an easy decision, and especially if you are already experiencing the hormone changes that come with pregnancy, navigating your emotions during this time can be an especially big challenge.
Our staff is here 24/7 to support you with all of the emotions that come with choosing adoption, and you can get free counseling on your adoption journey to help you face any difficulties. In other words, you never have to face these big emotions alone.
Challenge 4: Understanding the Legal Process
With a big decision like adoption, it is important to get the details right and be informed at all stages of the legal process.
When you work with American Adoptions, attorneys will assist with each necessary legal step, and you can get the legal help you need to complete your adoption successfully.
Challenge 5: Finances
Unplanned pregnancy can bring many expenses, and these can feel overwhelming if you are not sure how to handle them as you continue a pregnancy. When you choose adoption with American Adoptions, we may be able to help you with expenses.
Financial support depends on your situation and state, but in some cases, you can receive support for things like:
- Maternity clothing
- Pregnancy-related medical bills
- Pre-natal vitamins
- Travel expenses
- Legal expenses
- Living expenses
Challenge 6: Planning and Logistics
When you have an unplanned pregnancy, taking care of yourself and your pregnancy is the number one priority. Making extra plans and handling details of travel and communication when you choose adoption can sound like added stress, but in some cases, choosing adoption and having an adoption agency by your side can actually be easier.
Our adoption specialists handle the many details of the adoption process so that you can focus on taking care of yourself.
Challenge 7: Navigating the Birth Father Relationship
Whether your pregnancy is the result of an unknown partner or you know who got you pregnant, your relationship with this person may be strained by pregnancy, or you may wonder about the many unknowns of being tied to this person through pregnancy.
Our adoption professionals can help you navigate both the legal processes and the social processes of having a pregnancy that you didn’t expect and can help you with communication and finding the best path for you and your pregnancy that helps you avoid potential roadblocks and ease worries.
