Choosing to place a child for adoption in Oklahoma should not be a financial burden.

Adoption is a loving and selfless gift that you can give to not only your baby, but an adoptive family as well. Your decision to place your baby for adoption in Oklahoma will be a long-awaited miracle for a hopeful waiting family.
There are many reasons expectant mothers choose adoption. You may be unable to financially support a baby. You may not feel emotionally ready to care for a baby. You might not have support from your family. You might have an unstable relationship with the birthfather. No adoption is the same and no reason for choosing adoption is better than another.
Overall, birthmothers decide to place their baby for adoption because they care about themselves and, more importantly, they care about their baby. If you decide that you are not ready to be a parent, you can make a plan for your baby’s future by choosing an adopting family. Adoption in Oklahoma can provide your child with:
Contacting an Oklahoma adoption agency or adoption organization, like Angel Adoption, is a great way to explore your options and learn about adoption. Our staff of adoption professionals will answer any questions you may have, and provide you with all the information you need to move forward if you choose and make your personalized adoption plan.
You are probably wondering how this works. Here are the steps you take to complete the adoption process.
We will help you create an adoption plan that is tailored to your specific wants and needs. You’ll browse families from our database of adoptive parent profiles. You can choose what type of adoption you want, and 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. All of the 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 wants and needs 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 adoptive family as much or as little as you wish. As your due date gets near, we will help you create a birth plan for when you go into labor.
After your baby is born, you’ll be able to spend as much time as you would like to in the hospital with your baby, the adopting family, and/or a counselor. The baby will 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 Oklahoma adoption agency will help you put together a plan to move forward after the adoption and get the ongoing support you need.
As the expectant mother, you will choose what type of adoption will work best for you and your baby. There are three different types: open adoption, semi-open adoption, and closed adoption.
The type of adoption is based on the level of communication you have with the family and your baby before and after birth. Every type of adoption offers you the option of choosing the adoptive family, communicating with them before the birth, meeting them before the birth, and meeting your baby. Everything is completely up to you, and you can decide what you are most comfortable with. Consider all the differences between each type of adoption before making a decision.
Open adoption is the most common form of adoption in the United States. In an open adoption, identifying information is shared, including names, phone numbers, and email addresses. There are varying degrees of openness after the adoption process is finalized. This includes the exchange of emails, letters, pictures, phone calls, and in-person visits.
Semi-open adoption is like an open adoption, but it involves only the exchange of photos, emails, and phone calls. The children don't normally have any direct communication with their birthparents.
In a closed adoption, no identifying information is shared between birthparents and adoptive families. It is 100% anonymous and there is no contact after placement.
A fulfilling part of the adoption process is choosing the adoptive family for your baby. Angel Adoption only works with families who are licensed to adopt a baby in the United States. Our adopting families have all been pre-screened and are ready to provide a safe, stable, and loving home. No matter what you are looking for, we believe there is a family out there that is a perfect fit for you and your baby.
