Make a plan for your adoption
Adoptive Parents: Once you make the decision to adopt, make a plan as to how you want to accomplish the plan. Set a realistic timeline, make goals, and take consistent steps toward these goals. Looking at all the paperwork and classes required to be an approved adoptive family might seem very daunting and time consuming. But having a plan and taking one step after another helps families work toward their goals. Use your social worker at the agency to help you with these steps. Social workers are there to help guide you and ultimately will be by your side when you are matched with a child.
Prospective Birth Parents: Making a plan is another important part of the adoption process. You are in control of your adoption plan. You make the decisions that will be put into place for your child. You can choose the family, meet that family, make a plan for how things will go at the hospital and then you can make a plan as to how your post adoption contact will go with the adoptive parents. Many prospective birth parents are unaware of all of the choices that are available to them throughout the planning process. Your input is valued and will be honored throughout the planning of this critical life changing decision. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information, at 1-888-466-6693
