It is Never Too Late
Whether you just found out that you are pregnant or you have already given birth, it is never too late to place your baby for adoption in Ohio. At Adoptions With Love, we maintain close relationships with specialists across Ohio and we can send a professional straight to your door – even in your hospital room.
According to Ohio’s adoption laws, birth mothers may not sign any legal documents agreeing to the adoption until at least 72 hours after the child’s birth. This gives you time to meet your child and consider your decision before signing the legal papers.
The term “giving baby up for adoption” is still something that is used in everyday conversation, although it is an outdated and incorrect one. Placing your baby for adoption is anything but “giving up.” Making an open adoption plan is a thoughtful, loving, and brave decision. It does not mean saying goodbye forever, as it keeps the window open for a relationship down the road. You deserve to have the support you need during this challenging time, and we are here for you, whatever you need.
Open adoption is a positive choice for many expectant/birth mothers and their children. You can find out if adoption is right for you by reading more about the pros and cons here. Or you can reach out to Adoptions With Love for support and answers about open adoption in Ohio.
