How to Place Your Baby for Adoption in Wyoming
- Find an Adoption Agency You Trust
The first step for any adoption plan is finding the right adoption agency. You should look for a full-service, fully licensed, private adoption agency that will meet your needs and respect your wishes. When searching for a Wyoming adoption agency, browse websites to get a feel for their organization. Read testimonials from birth parents who have worked with the agency. With Adoptions With Love, you can call, text, or fill out this contact form online to answer any questions you may have about adoption.

- Choose Your Child’s Adoptive Family (If You Wish)
One of the many choices that comes with adoption is the right to choose your child’s adoptive family. You are in charge of your pregnancy. Your adoption plan should cater to your needs. The first step in the journey – after finding the best adoption agency in Wyoming – is to find adoptive parents. You can browse through the many adoptive family profiles at Adoptions With Love and ask any additional questions about the family before making your decision. You may also choose to speak with them on the phone, on a virtual call, or in person, if you wish.
- Determine the Right Adoption Plan for You
The next step in the adoption journey is to create your adoption plan. Your adoption specialist can help you custom design a plan that meets your needs. You can choose between the three basic types of adoption plans:
- Open adoption
- Semi-open adoption
- Closed adoption
Most adoptions today are open, but you can choose whichever type of plan makes you feel most comfortable. There is no right or wrong way to make an adoption plan.
Open adoption in Wyoming offers many benefits to birth parents. These types of plans can look different for everyone, but the common thread is that they all entail ongoing communication between birth and adoptive parents after the adoption is complete. If you would like to stay connected with your child’s adoptive family through texts, phone calls, or in-person visits, that may be arranged. Your adoption agency can help you create the adoption plan, and it can be changed over the years to accommodate a growing child and evolving relationships.
If you feel that you would be more comfortable with a semi-open or closed adoption, that is okay, too. Adoptions With Love keeps photos and letters on file, should a birth parent change their mind years later and decide to open the adoption.
- Continue Counseling Services After Birth
After the birth, you will sign your consent to adoption. Once the adoption is complete, you can start to recover – physically and emotionally. As you emotionally heal from this experience, you can – and should – continue your counseling services offered by your adoption agency. At Adoptions With Love, the adoption completion does not mean the end of our relationship. It is, in fact, ongoing. The right Wyoming adoption agency should offer to pay for counseling services up to a year after giving birth.
