Some of the most stressful aspects of an unplanned pregnancy include:

- Impact on the future.
- Stigma and societal judgment.
- Balancing responsibilities and finances.

Our compassionate adoption professionals are committed to ensuring that your voice is heard, your concerns are addressed, and your choices are respected throughout the entire process. Ultimately, we are here to empower you to make the best decision for both you and your child.
What is an Adoption Plan?
An adoption plan is a detailed outline that birth parents create when they choose adoption. Therefore, it is an essential step in the adoption process as it allows birth parents to have a say in details about their adoption process as well as how the child will be raised and cared for by the adoptive parents.
The adoption plan typically covers various aspects, including the level of openness desired, the birth parents’ preferences regarding the adoptive family, any specific needs, wants, and counseling through pregnancy, delivery, and the birth plan, and post-placement support. Overall, it serves as a guide for adoptive parents to honor the birth parents’ choices and provide the best possible environment for the child.
The level of openness in the adoption is a crucial aspect addressed in the adoption plan. Our adoption agency specializes in open adoption, a modern and inclusive approach that emphasizes the importance of healthy relationships and connections. Most important, with an open adoption, you have the opportunity to be an active participant in your child’s life, maintaining contact and building an ongoing relationship with the adoptive family if desired.
Through open communication, trust, and mutual respect, open adoption allows for the sharing of information, photos, and even visits between birth parents, adoptive parents, and the child. This option ensures that your child grows up with a deep sense of understanding and connection to their roots, providing a solid foundation for their identity and self-esteem.
