Once you have decided to move forward with adoption agencies in Vermont, you will get started by creating your adoption plan. Your 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 how to move forward and get the post-adoption support you need.
A fulfilling part of the adoption process is choosing the right 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 been pre-screened and are ready to provide a safe, stable, and loving home.
Sorting through adoptive parent profiles can be tough, and overwhelming. Before you start looking 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 adoptive parents based on any set of criteria. Take your time, and review as many profiles as you need to to find the right family that is the perfect fit for you and your baby.
The first step towards putting your baby up for adoption is contacting an adoption agency in Vermont, or an adoption organization, like Angel Adoption. If you choose to work with us, we will be your guide and support system throughout the entire adoption process. You will view profiles of families hoping to adopt and choose one for your baby. We’ll help you put together an adoption plan based on your wants and needs, such as whether it will be open or closed, and what you’ll do after the adoption.
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.
Every adoptive parent working with Angel Adoption has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. The home study process includes assessments of the parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Angel Adoption requires each family 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. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents.
You have the option of choosing which type of adoption is right for you. 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. Communication typically includes the exchange of emails, letters, pictures, phone calls, and in-person visits. A semi-open adoption is like an open adoption, but without in-person visits. In a closed adoption, you and the adoptive parents remain anonymous for the entire process and there is no contact after placement.
Choosing what type of adoption you’d like doesn’t have to be a decision you make alone. Your adoption coordinator will discuss the options with you in detail and can help you decide what will work best for you.
