What About Adoption?

Adoption is one of the options for women facing an unplanned pregnancy. If you are considering this option, you might have many questions about the process. At Solutions Health & Pregnancy Center, we can give you information on the different types of adoption, answer your questions, and put you in touch with an adoption agency. Are you leaning towards this option?

Many women consider this option for the following reasons:

  • “I don’t want an abortion, but I don’t think I’m ready to be a parent.”
  • “I think my unborn child should have a two-parent family.”
  • “I don’t think I will be able to give them the financial and emotional support they need.”
  • “I’m pursuing my personal goals and this could interfere with my success.”

Open Adoption

This option allows you to choose your child’s family and communicate directly with them about your child throughout the course of his or her life. This happens through an arrangement agreed upon by you and the adoptive family. Communication may happen through periodic visits, phone calls, letters, pictures, and emails. It can happen often, or only once or twice a year. Before agreeing to this arrangement, you and the adoptive parents will reach a decision on a plan that works well for both parties involved. Your child will grow up knowing who you are.

Partially Open Adoption

You can choose the type of family your child grows up in.  You may also choose to learn how your child is doing through pictures or letters that the adoption agency shares with you. You usually will not know your child’s full name or location.

Confidential Adoption

This form of adoption is rare in the United States but used to be more popular before the 1980s. In a confidential agreement, personal information of both the birth parents and adoptive parents is kept private, and the arrangement is sealed through court documents to protect the identities of all parties involved.

No matter your reason for considering this option, it’s important to discuss the process and details. Our staff is ready to listen and help you! Sign up for a confidential appointment to learn more about your options.
