How to Make an Adoption Plan in Virginia

Our expert team is by your side as you navigate this adoption journey. Making an adoption plan that you are comfortable with is our top priority. We will discuss all of your options with you, answer any questions, and help you choose what is best for you and your baby.

If you choose to work with our adoption agency in Virginia, we will help you:

Choose the right family for your baby. With an open adoption agency, you have the power to decide who will raise your baby. Many expectant/birth mothers take comfort in knowing they can hand-select an already screened and prepared adoptive family for their child. If you would like to make this important decision, we will provide you with photo albums of our families who are ready for adoption. YOU can choose a family that you feel will provide the best home for your child. Talk about empowerment. You can meet the family in person, too, if you would like.

Decide on an open or closed adoption. Adoptions With Love gives expectant/birth parents the choice to choose an open, semi-open, or closed adoption plan in Virginia. Most birth parents today opt for an open adoption. This just means that there is some form of ongoing communication between birth parents and adoptive families. The form and frequency of communication is agreed upon before the adoption is finalized. Your social worker can sit with you to determine which type of plan will work best for you, and they will also work it out with the prospective adoptive parents to reach an agreement. You are not bound to the type of adoption you choose. If you decide to have a closed adoption, you can open it at a later date. Adoptions With Love keeps regularly updated photos and letters from the adoptive family on file. This flexibility gives many of our expectant/birth parents a feeling of security that is especially welcome during this emotional time.

Adoptions Laws in Virginia

We understand that the adoption process can be confusing and sometimes daunting. What happens in one state does not necessarily happen in another. If you feel overwhelmed, Adoptions With Love can help. Our adoption counselors, attorneys, and agency partners are expertly trained on the adoption laws in Virginia. If you choose to work with us, you can relax knowing that our experienced team is available to provide in-person support and legal assistance every step of the way.

Here are a few basic guidelines to know regarding adoption laws in Virginia. Of course, this information should not be taken as legal advice. Adoption laws can change at any time, so be sure to contact Adoptions With Love before making any final decisions.

According to current Virginia adoption laws, adoption consent must be given by the child’s birth mother and any man who:

  • Is the acknowledged father
  • Is the presumed father
  • Has registered with the Virginia Birth Father Registry

A birth father may terminate his parental rights before the birth of the child.

As in every state, you, the mother, must wait until the baby’s birth before finalizing an adoption decision. In Virginia, you may sign official consent to adoption three days after birth. This gives you time to think about your decision, and ensure it is still the best choice for you and your baby.

Not only do our compassionate professionals deliver emotional guidance and support, but they are also trained with the knowledge and expertise of Virginia adoption laws. You and your baby are  important to us and our professionals will work with you to fulfill all of Virginia’s adoption requirements, such as signing legal documents after your baby’s birth. .  Our team will do all that is necessary to make sure that your adoption is safe, legal, and comfortable every step of the way.
