5 Frequently Asked Questions About Adoption

1. Is There A Right Reason To Choose Adoption?

People choose adoption for many reasons. Whether it’s because they’re financially unable to support a child, not emotionally ready for parenthood, or other reasons, adoption is ultimately a decision based on what’s best for the child.

2. Can I Choose Who Adopts My Child?

Yes! This is called an “open adoption.” In this case, the agency will allow you to choose from a pool of loving families who all want to adopt. It’s up to you to decide how much personal contact you wish to have with them as you make your decision.

3. Does It Cost Money To Choose Adoption?

adoptionIt does not cost you anything to give your child up for adoption. Usually, the adoptive parents will pay for all expenses, including some pregnancy-related costs. Our caring staff would be happy to answer any questions you have about your individual situation.

4. What Are The Father’s Rights?

Every case is different. The father has the right to receive notice of the adoption but cannot veto it unless he’s married to you or has taken other steps to claim paternity. Typically, he will have more of a say if both of you are in a committed relationship.

5. When Should I Make My Adoption Plans?

Some people choose adoption while they’re still pregnant, while others end up deciding during labor or after having given birth. The sooner you decide, the easier the process will be.

If you have any other questions about adoption, we at Heartbeats would be glad to answer them.
