Make an Adoption Plan
There are three adoption plans available for birth mothers.
· Open adoption
· Semi-open adoption
· Closed adoption
Your adoption counselor will guide you to understand more about the plans. This will help you to decide the best for your baby. This is a highly personal decision that only a mother can make for her child.
Choose the Right Adoptive Family
Our team can help you to select the best adoptive family for your baby. All our families are pre-screened and home-study-approved.
Get to Know the Adoptive Family
You can communicate with the adoptive parents by text, calls, and emails. Based on the type of adoption plan you have selected; you can even meet with the adoptive parents and form a bond with them before the adoption gets finalized.
Create a Hospital Plan
You and your adoption caseworker will create a hospital stay and delivery plan. As a mother, you can decide who will be with you in the room, who will hold the child first, when the baby will meet with adoptive parents, and when the child will go to the new home.
Post Adoption Counseling and Support
Grief is a natural emotion for you to process after placement. We offer supportive services and counseling to help you process the emotion post-placement. Also, if you have chosen open or semi-open adoption, you can see pictures and receive updates to see how your child is growing.

Positive Adoption Language Disclaimer –
We understand that using words such as “give up” or “put up” to describe adoption can be hurtful and inappropriate. However, we must include these words in our blog posts to appear in expectant moms’ Google search results. While we promote positive adoption language, many expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. Therefore, our blog posts may use the language they understand, such as “how do I give up my baby for adoption” or “how do I put up my baby for adoption,” in order to explain how to create an adoption plan for their baby.
