Guide to Adoption After Birth
Have you just given birth, and are considering adoption for your baby? It is not too late.
Choosing to place your child for adoption is a selfless, loving act. It takes incredible strength and courage to make a plan for your baby’s life, especially when you did not plan for this pregnancy. Right now, you may be feeling overwhelmed, frightened, and unsure of what to do. You may be at the hospital, recovering from birth, and re-considering all your options. You may have spent some time with your newborn since birth, and realized
you are not ready to become a parent or raise another child. This is very common among women who have faced an unplanned pregnancy, and it is okay to feel this way. You are not alone. There are resources available to you.
Despite what many think, there is no deadline for adoption. Nothing must be finalized – or even decided – by the time baby is born. In fact, every state today requires that birth mothers wait until after the baby is born to make a final decision. This gives women more time with their decision and gives many expectant/birth mothers peace of mind.
