Once you have decided to move forward with adoption in South Carolina we will help you get started by creating your adoption plan.
Your customized adoption plan outlines your personal wants and needs for the entire adoption process. This includes searching for an adoptive family, choosing what type of adoption you want, and moving forward after the adoption in a healthy way.
As part of your adoption plan, you will be able to choose the type of adoption that is best for you. There are three types: open adoption, semi-open adoption, and closed adoption.
The type of adoption is based on the level of communication you’d like to 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 100% 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 families hoping to adopt have all been pre-screened and are ready to provide a safe, stable, and loving home for your baby.
Sorting through adoptive parent profiles can be tough, and overwhelming. Before you start looking take some time to think about what matters the 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 adoptive parents based on any set of criteria. Take your time, and review as many profiles as you need to. 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.
