A Guide to Adoption Agencies in Kentucky
Adoption Information and Services in Kentucky
What you need to know about placing your baby for adoption in Kentucky:
- What are my unplanned pregnancy options in Kentucky?
Expectant mothers in Kentucky typically have the option to choose adoption or parenthood. After six weeks of pregnancy, abortion is banned in Kentucky (unless there is a life-threatening medical need). However, abortion may be available to you. You may choose to travel to another state where abortion is legal or use the abortion pill if you wish to terminate your pregnancy. There are networks to support those who seek to travel to another state for an abortion. If abortion is not an option for you, adoption can offer a positive outcome for you and your baby.
- How much does adoption cost in Kentucky?
Adoption is completely free for expectant/birth mothers in Kentucky. In fact, you may receive financial assistance during this time.
- What are the adoption requirements in Kentucky?
Adoption laws vary by state, so it is important to consult with an attorney regarding adoption requirements in Kentucky. Adoptions With Love offers the services of experienced adoption attorneys, free of charge for birth/expectant mothers.
- How can I place my baby for adoption in Kentucky?

A birth mother can sign consent forms for adoption any time after 72 hours from giving birth. You can consider adoption during pregnancy, while in the hospital, and even after you have brought the baby home. It is never too late to make an adoption plan.
- Who can I talk to for support in Kentucky?
Facing an unplanned pregnancy can feel overwhelming, stressful, and lonely. However, you are not alone. There are support groups for those facing the same situation. There are forums and chat groups online wherein you can speak with those who have also faced unplanned pregnancy. You can always turn to an adoption agency professional, with zero commitment or obligation to choose adoption.
