1. Can I Receive Financial Assistance Throughout My Pregnancy?

Depending on state laws, you can receive financial help when you place your baby for adoption. Remember to always work with a licensed adoption agency to ensure that you receive financial assistance in a legal and ethical way. As one of the nation’s largest national domestic adoption agencies with over 30 years of experience, American Adoptions has helped many birth mothers get the most out of their financial assistance.

We ensure you receive the necessary financial help you’re entitled to and that all payments made by the adoptive family for your expenses are legal. Adoption can lead to a better life for not only you but your child as well. One of the benefits of choosing this path, in addition to free services and financial support, is that you’re providing your child with a life full of love and opportunity.

2. What Kind of Financial Assistance Can I Receive?

The adoption pay you’ll receive is to help cover any necessary pregnancy and living-related expenses to ensure you have everything you need throughout your pregnancy. These living expenses include:

  • Rent and utilities
  • Food
  • Transportation
  • Maternity Clothing
  • Phone Service
  • And more

American Adoptions collaborates with adoptive families to help cover living expenses during your pregnancy and adoption plan. Your adoption specialist will work with courts and adoptive families to ensure you’re fully supported throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

3. How Can Financial Assistance Help Me in My Adoption Journey?

Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be stressful, and it takes a lot of courage and love to make an adoption plan for your baby. Most birth mothers choose adoption because they want to give their baby a life they know they can’t provide. The financial assistance you receive will help you have a safe and healthy pregnancy by making sure you have everything you need throughout your pregnancy.

When you work with American Adoptions, we can help you receive the financial support you need while providing free services and 24/7 support. We make sure that you receive the maximum amount of assistance based on state laws.

4. Are There Adoption Agencies That Pay Birth Mothers?

There are no adoption agencies that pay you to place your child for adoption. Giving a person money, gifts or favors in exchange for a child is illegal and unethical, which is why women who attempt to find adoptive parents on their own can face serious legal charges.

This is why it’s essential to work with a licensed adoption agency, like American Adoptions, so that you can legally and ethically receive the financial assistance you’re entitled to. Remember that regardless of your situation, adoption will always be free and financial assistance will always be available.

5. How Much Support Can I Receive?

The financial assistance you receive throughout your pregnancy can vary by your living situation, stage of pregnancy, and the state or county you live in. For example, if a woman is still in high school and living with her parents, she won’t need as much support for living expenses as a woman who is in her 20s or 30s living on her own. We also understand that your living situation and needs may change throughout your pregnancy.

Once your adoption specialist understands your financial needs, they will work as quickly as possible to get you financial assistance.

Because living expenses are regulated through courts and state laws, American Adoptions can provide you with just as much financial assistance as any other adoption agency but with the 24/7 support of a full-service staff.
