Living and Medical Expenses

When you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, the last thing you need to worry about is how you are going to pay for things like rent, groceries, medical bills, and more. The free support of a licensed adoption agency helps you take control of your situation with financial assistance during your pregnancy.

When exploring your options during an unplanned pregnancy – wondering how you are going to pay for your next meal or the appropriate care needed for a healthy pregnancy shouldn’t add to your concerns. The free help and support from our fully-licensed adoption agency aims to relieve these stressors, allowing you to focus on a brighter future for you and your baby.

Although you do not get paid to put your baby up for adoption, financial support is available to ensure you have the necessary resources to live a safe and supported lifestyle and complete a healthy pregnancy. It allows you to change your life for the better.

Receive Assistance with Living Expenses

As a pregnant woman choosing adoption, you are eligible for assistance with expenses like:

  • Rent
  • Utilities
  • Groceries
  • Clothing
  • Transportation
  • More

Financial assistance for living expenses will vary depending upon your current situation and the state you live in, as this support is court-mandated. During the adoption planning stage of the process, your American Adoptions specialist will help determine your needs and work to make sure you receive the maximum allotted amount allowed.

Assistance with everyday living expenses helps avoid unnecessary financial stressors and allows you to focus on finding and getting to know the perfect family for your child. To learn more about available assistance during your pregnancy, fill out this online form.

Assistance with Pregnancy and Medical Expenses

Pregnancy is expensive. The costs of scheduled doctor visits, delivery, and hospital stays can quickly add up. You shouldn't have to sacrifice your health and safety, nor that of your baby, because of these expenses.

Choosing adoption for your baby ensures you don’t have to.

All pregnancy and medical expenses are completely covered for birth mothers who choose adoption. This allows you to work with the best doctors throughout your pregnancy, choose the hospital where you want to deliver your baby, and focus on having a healthy pregnancy without the financial stress of medical bills. 

No matter your situation, adoption is always free, and financial assistance is always available. Also, all legal expenses related to completing your adoption are fully covered.

Get Financial Assistance

Every birth mother deserves to feel comfortable and confident in her decision to place her baby for adoption. Financial assistance during your adoption is a large step in the right direction.

Relieving the burden of everyday expenses and the costs associated with pregnancy and delivery helps you focus on your pregnancy and the next steps of the adoption process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is American Adoptions the right adoption agency choice for many birth mothers?

American Adoptions is one of the largest licensed adoption agencies in the United States. Each year, we work with thousands of women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and offer assistance to these women. Our large, caring staff is able to assist you seven days a week and provide you with one-on-one counseling about your pregnancy and available options.

You should choose an adoption agency where you feel completely comfortable with their services and staff. With American Adoptions, you will work with an Adoption Specialist who is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Adoption Specialist will be your advocate and will provide support and guidance as you create an adoption plan that is right for you.

How will the family tell my child about me and the adoption when my child is older?

Each family has their own style of introducing adoption to the child. When you are matched with an adoptive family, you can ask them this question. If you would like your Adoption Specialist to discuss it for you, just let her know. He or she can share your wishes or provide good ideas from other adoptive families.

You will also be able to share what you want your baby to know about you. You can complete a keepsake booklet to share hobbies, stories, photos of you and your family and a letter to your baby. The adoptive family can provide this to your child as he or she grows older. Be as creative as you like! Some birth mothers have even knitted a special blanket as a gift to their baby or given a similar symbol of their love.

The father of your baby can fill out the birth father's keepsake booklet or write a letter too. You may have other family members who would also like to share photos or a letter to the baby. This is your opportunity to pass on your and your family's love and to share your personality, history and reasons for choosing adoption. The adoptive family will treasure whatever information you provide and will share it with the baby at an appropriate age. In most adoptive homes, the word adoption is in the child's vocabulary early on, and adoption is celebrated in their lives.
