Adoption is an option often overlooked because it is a hard choice to make. Choosing to place your child for adoption is an extremely loving and courageous option. Couples who are considering placing their child for adoption are able to have an active role in planning for the adoption if desired. Additionally, expectant parents may change their mind and decide to parent up to 48 hours after the birth of their child.
There are closed, semi-closed, and fully disclosed adoptions which have varying degrees of communication and contact with the child. In open adoptions, birth parents maintain a relationship with their child after placement with the adoptive parents/family.
Casa La Esperanza can help you connect with an adoption agency to learn more about your rights and the whole process if this is an option you are considering.
