Is Giving Your Baby Up for Adoption Right for You?

From all of us at Adoption Alliance, we understand that you’re currently making one of the toughest decisions of your life, and may find yourself vacillating between keeping your baby, abortion, and adoption. We hope to enlighten you to the miracle and wonders of adoption, as it’s an amazing opportunity to provide your baby with a beautiful life. Our desire is to instill you with calm and the knowledge that you’re not giving up on your baby, but rather providing a bright future. While our hope is for adoption to be your choice, first you must determine for yourself if adoption is the right path. Have you really asked yourself, “Do I want to give my baby up?” After necessary consideration, it’s vital to follow these steps for putting a baby up for adoption, especially when seeking out an adoptive family in Texas or any other state. Additionally, during your evaluation process it’s imperative you think about the role the baby’s father will play in the process. If you decide to move forward without the father’s consent we can still work with you, regardless of the relationship you have or don’t have with the baby’s father. However, we do encourage expectant fathers to join in the process. If they choose to not be involved then we ensure the necessary steps are taken for a legal adoption.

Where can I give my baby for adoption?

When placing a child for adoption you are signing over your parental rights to the adoptive family. However, you have full control of the entire process as you are selecting the family to take over the care for your baby. You can even choose the location where the adoptive family comes from because we can facilitate adoptions in Texas and most other states.

Learn about the adoption process

You may be feeling the burden of not only your decision, but also the financial strain accompanying your unplanned pregnancy. We hope to save you from intimidating questions like, “should I be concerned about where to live, how do I pay my bills, and how do I provide the best medical care for myself and my child?” By working with Adoption Alliance, we will ease these hardships because we deeply care for the welfare of you and your baby. As you’re preparing for adoption, we will guide you through every single step of the process. We’ll assist with any money woes and medical bills, as your health and safety are of the utmost importance. You and your adoption professional will sit down and work through key decisions like deciding if adoption is right for you, create a tailored plan to your specific needs, find a perfect adoptive family, foster the type of relationship you wish to have with the adoptive family, prepare you for your hospital stay, and assist in deciding the level of contact you want with your baby after birth. We’ll also guide you through any legal issues regarding laws in Texas or another state as it pertains to your individual situation.

Thoughts to consider for Adoption

Over 150 years ago adoption officially became legal in the United States, and has continually evolved to better serve the best interests of both birth mothers and adoptive families. Today, through the magic of adoption over 135,000 children are adopted in America every year from foster care, private domestic agencies, family members, and foreign countries. The following are a few key statistics about adoption that should encourage you:
  • 1 out of every 25 US families with children have an adopted child
  • 5 million Americans have considered adoption
  • The US adopts more children than any other country
  • 40% of adopted children are of a different race, culture, or ethnicity than one or both of their adoptive parents
While we believe adoption to be a great option and wanted to highlight a few key thoughts to help you in the decision process.
  • Giving a child a better shot in life (functional family, siblings etc…)
Since you personally can select the functional family your baby will be joining, you’re enabling them to have all the nurturing love, support, and care to guide them into adulthood. They may even get to experience the fun of having siblings! The friendship and bond built between siblings is irreplaceable.
  • For the Family that Adopts
Families seek adoption for many reasons: some see it as their civic or religious duty to grow their family with an adoptive baby, others are unable to conceive their own biological baby, and others want to give a baby an opportunity at a wonderful life. All reasons being completely valid and part of the beauty that is adoption; the desire to give a baby a healthy and wonderful life.
  • Adoption is a great alternative with an unplanned pregnancy
In some cases, a birth mother is a single teen parent struggling to provide for herself while working and attending school. For others, the parents are physically or emotionally unable to raise their baby. These parents sacrifice their parental rights in-order-to give a new and better life for their baby. To the relief of these parents, adoptive parents will bear the cost of medical care for the new birth and pay all expenses regarding the legal process.   We hope to remind you that you’re not alone and there is no shame associated with wanting the very best for your baby, even if that means you’re not raising them. Loving families are ready and waiting to give your baby the best future possible.   Learn more and speak with our agency staff members who are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have at 1-800-626-4324.   The Adoption Alliance is an adoption agency licensed to place children and infants for permanent adoption.
