One of your options when facing an unplanned pregnancy is adoption.

The thought of making a plan for adoption can be very overwhelming. It’s important to know that a great deal has changed in how adoptions are performed. The most significant changes have given the birth mother a great deal of control over the process.

Here are a few facts related to adoption:

  • You can choose the family.
  • You can choose the agency or organization you work with.
  • You can choose whether it’s an open or closed adoption and how much ongoing contact you have with the child.
  • You can choose how things go at the hospital and throughout your pregnancy.
  • You can choose the timing of your child’s placement.
  • In most instances it is of no cost to the birthparent.
