What is Open Adoption?

Open Adoption is the most popular adoption option. It allows you to have an ongoing relationship with your child and your chosen family through letters, photos, videos, and, in some cases, visits throughout your baby’s childhood.

How does the adoption process work?

The first step in the adoption process is deciding whether or not adoption is right for you. Call or text us at (317) 964-3365 so we can explain your options in detail. Select the best family for your baby and make a birth plan. Choose the level of ongoing contact with the parent and your child. We will continue to help you before and after the adoption placement.

Can I get help with rent, food, clothing, and other living assistance?

Yes. When a pregnant/birth mother makes an adoption plan, it is always free of charge. Depending on the state laws, you may be eligible to receive financial assistance with pregnancy-related and other living expenses.

Can I choose the family to adopt my baby?

Absolutely. At Courageous Hearts Adoptions, you are in control. You can review and choose the family you believe will provide the best life for your child. All our families are thoroughly screened and home study approved to ensure they are emotionally and financially stable for adopting a child.

Does the baby's father need to be involved in making an adoption plan?

If you are married to the birth father, he will need to be involved to some degree. If you are not married, it will depend on your state laws. Call/text us at (317) 964-3365 for additional information.

I am pregnant but have no prenatal care and have a history of substance abuse. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes, you can always make an adoption plan for your baby. At Courageous Hearts, we never judge you and treat you with respect and dignity. No matter what your situation is or the stress you are under, we are here for you to help you navigate your options.
