Even if you have not 100% decided to place your baby for adoption, contacting an adoption agency in Maine or adoption organization, like Angel Adoption, is a great way to weigh your options. Our staff of adoption professionals will help you make an adoption plan and discover your needs during your pregnancy. Your adoption coordinator will answer any questions you may have, and provide you with all the information you need to move forward.
You are probably wondering how this works. Here is an overview of the steps you take to complete the adoption process.
We will help you create an adoption plan based on your specific wants and needs. You’ll start by browsing families from our database of profiles of families hoping to adopt. You can choose what type of adoption you want, including how much contact you’d like to have with your baby and the adopting parents during and after the adoption.
If you’ve chosen to communicate with the family adopting your baby, we can arrange for you to talk on the phone, email, or text with them. Whatever you’re most comfortable with! All of the adopting families we work with have been licensed to adopt a baby in the United States and are fully prepared to provide a loving and stable home.
Next, you will meet with a social worker or attorney – at no cost to you. This meeting will allow you to tell them about your needs and wants during the adoption, and help you to learn more about the legal aspects of adoption.
Throughout your pregnancy, we will provide you with all the support and assistance you need. You can communicate with your adopting family as much or as little as you wish.
After the birth, you’ll be able to spend as much time as you would like to in the hospital with your baby, the adoptive family, and/or a counselor. The baby may go directly home from the hospital with the adoptive family. Shortly after you will sign the legal documents consenting to the adoption.
After the adoption process is completed, the amount of contact you’ll have with the baby and adoptive family depends on the type of adoption you choose. The post-adoption experience is different for every birthmother. Your adoption professional can work with you to put together a plan that will help you move forward after the adoption and get the support you need.
One of the most fulfilling parts of the adoption process is choosing the right adoptive family for your baby. Angel Adoption’s waiting adoptive families have been pre-screened and are all licensed to adopt a baby in the United States.
Before you start looking through adoptive parent profiles, think about what matters most to you. What are your must haves? What are deal breakers? Is there anything you don’t want? You have the right to pick any set of adopting parents based on any set of criteria. Take your time, and review as many profiles as you need to. To help find a family that is the right fit, ask them questions like:
