Steps To Giving Up A Baby For Adoption

by Louise Holt

It is a hard decision to give your baby up for adoption. However, sometimes it is necessary because of your current situation in life. Understanding the entire process and how it works can help you have some peace of mind about making the decision. If you are seriously considering giving your baby up for adoption, here are some things that you should know in order to get started.

Choose an Agency 

The first step in the entire process is to choose an adoption agency for your baby. Once you get in contact with an agency, you will be assigned an adoption facilitator to your case. This facilitator will work with you to personalize your adoption plan so that you are comfortable with the adoption process. You can tell your adoption facilitator about the type of family you wish for your baby, you can also discuss how to prepare for your delivery.

Family Selection

The next step in the process is the selection of the right family for your baby. Adoptive families are usually thoroughly checked to ensure that they can provide a safe and secure environment for your child. Their homes are usually examined and a background check is given. This is to ensure that they will love and care for your child correctly. You can decide whether you want a closed or open adoption. With a closed adoption, you will have no further contact with your child once you have left the hospital.

Bear in mind though that open adoptions are becoming more popular where the birth mother is able to stay in contact with the birth family and get pictures, phone calls, or even visits with the child.

Giving Birth

Your adoption facilitator will help you come up with a birth plan for your baby. You will be able to decide if you want to see the adoptive family at the hospital and how much time you would like to spend with your child once you have given birth. 

Some mothers like to feed their baby after giving birth, clothe them, or change their diapers. Others prefer not to. It is up to you to decide what your hospital plan will look like.

Your Recovery

Once you have given your baby up for adoption, you may experience mixed emotions for a long period of time. You may even experience some form of grief. You will need to heal emotionally and physically. Your adoption facilitator will assist you with finding support groups and counseling to help you transition back to your normal routine.
