Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be scary. You have choices. Consider open adoption.
An unplanned pregnancy can be one of life’s most difficult experiences. Our experienced counselors provide in person counseling to help you sort out your feelings and make informed choices. We make sure you know your legal rights and help you make the decision that is best for you.
With Adoptions From The Heart, you can:
Select the family you want for your baby from our waiting families. Choose from photos, videos and written profiles. Meet the family and stay in touch if you want.
Join a support group. Meet other women who are considering adoption and/or have already placed their children for adoption. If you don’t want to or can’t meet in person we can connect you via phone or email with other women who have placed their children for adoption.
Choose the level of contact you want with the family after placement. You can choose either a totally open, semi-open (pictures & letters, possible visits), or a closed (no contact) adoption.
Create a hospital plan. You decide what is right for you at the hospital. Do you want the family there? Do you want your support people there? Do you want to hold your baby?
No Foster Care. Your child will be placed directly from the hospital with the family you choose so they can start bonding right away.
Write a letter to your child. This is a great way to let your child know why you decided on adoption. We will keep a copy of this letter and give a copy to the adoptive parents to keep for the child when he/she grows up.
Legally Binding Agreements are available in some states. Most contact agreements between you and the family are informal and not legally enforceable. Legally binding agreements give you a way to hold the adoptive family of your child accountable to the agreement they made to you when you agreed to place your child with them.
