You are probably wondering how this all works. To complete the adoption process in Mississippi, these are the steps you will take.
Your adoption plan is customized to your specific wants and needs. You’ll start by browsing our database of waiting adoptive family profiles. You can choose what type of adoption you want, including how much contact you’d like to have with your baby and the adoptive family during and after the adoption.
If you’ve chosen to communicate with the adoptive family, 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 your baby a loving and stable home.
Next, you will meet with a social worker or attorney – at no cost to you. This 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 the adoptive family as much or as little as you wish.
When your baby is born, you can 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 agency in Mississippi will help you to put together a plan to move forward after the adoption and get the support you need.
A fulfilling part of the adoption process is choosing the right adoptive family for your baby. All Angel Adoption families have been pre-screened, are licensed to adopt a baby in the United States, and are ready to provide a safe, stable, and loving home.

Is there anything you don’t want? You have the right to pick any adoptive family based on any set of criteria. Take your time, and review as many profiles as you need to.

No. As a birthmother, all of our counseling and services are provided at no cost to you. You may also receive financial assistance for housing and pregnancy-related expenses.
No. Adoption is entirely your choice. Your parents cannot legally prevent you from putting your baby up for adoption. You decide what is the best option for you and your baby.
An adoption requires the consent of both parents as long as they meet certain requirements that give them the right to do so. The rights of the father depend on several factors.
If you are married or have lived with him at some point during the pregnancy, his consent will likely be required to place your baby for adoption. If you were never married and never lived together, most states will not need the birthfather’s consent. He may be notified of the pending adoption, and at that point may have the right to consent or object.
If you are unsure of how to proceed with the birthfather’s involvement in the adoption, you can contact us anytime to discuss your situation.
We all have important choices to make in life. If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, deciding if you want to put your baby up for adoption is one of those choices. It is normal to question your thoughts and feelings about such a difficult decision.
Before making your choice, it’s important to understand what adoption means. Adoption is a permanent, legally binding process that takes place when a woman — or set of parents — decides not to parent and chooses to allow another family to raise her baby. After the adoption has finalized you will no longer have any legal parental rights. Every woman’s situation is unique, and only you know what is best for you and your baby. Take your time with this decision. Carefully consider all of the reasons why you are exploring adoption.
Adoptive families are thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. This process includes assessments of the parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency will also run background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. A social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Angel Adoption requires each family that works with us to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family.
You have the option of choosing which type of adoption is best for you and your baby. Open adoption is the most common form of adoption in the United States. In an open or semi-open adoption, you can choose the adoptive family and decide on the amount and type of contact during and after the adoption. In a closed adoption, you and the adoptive parents remain anonymous for the entire process and have no ongoing communication after the adoption has finalized.
It’s never too late. We receive phone calls and messages from women who are in labor and women who have already had their baby. If you’ve decided to put your baby up for adoption, you can contact us anytime — we are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We can have an adoptive family available for your baby within hours. The adoptive parents may take the baby home with them from the hospital, avoiding any need for foster care.
