Parenting a child can be a wonderful experience. At the same time it can be challenging financially, physically and emotionally. Planning for an adoption is one of the options of every birth mother and birth father. These following resources are for those of you who are seeking help and ideas for raising your child. The resources include support groups for birth mothers, information to help birth fathers to be the best fathers they can be, information on child development from ages 0-21, child/infant health information and advice on baby care, and breast feeding tips. We have also included resources on the Texas WIC program.
If you are considering placing your child for adoption, the resources below will help you in making the right choices for you and your child. They include:
Many people are not aware that there are many types of adoption and that the choices you make can affect you and your child. For instance, there is agency adoption or private adoption, and open adoption or closed adoption. These choices can have a big impact on the lives of you and your child and we recommend you read the following resources and understand them fully.
An agency adoption is the safest type of adoption for a birth mother and her child. An "agency adoption" is arranged through an adoption agency that is licensed and monitored. Private adoption, on the other hand, can be much more risky than an agency adoption, and is arranged through a private individual, often a lawyer, physician, non-licensed facilitator, or referral service.
A closed adoption is an adoption in which you, the birth mother, and the family interested in adoption do not know each other's last names or other specific identifying information. An open adoption is an adoption where the birth mother, birth father, and the family interested in adoption exchange identifying information and are then able, if they so choose, to be in direct contact with one another.
Using an adoption facilitator is one type of private adoption that needs special warning. Adoption facilitators have become such an important area of concern that even the U.S. government has stepped in and has warned both birth mothers and adopting families to work with an adoption agency and avoid adoption facilitators.
Selecting the right agency is an important early step. Agencies come in a variety of forms. They can be for-profit or non-profit, public or private and domestic or international. But the most important fact to remember is that agencies are licensed to give you options and protections that are not available when you deal directly with an adoption facilitator, doctor, or attorney.
Placing children with a relative of the birth mother or birth father is a special type of adoption that some pregnant women consider.
Support groups are available for pregnant teens as well as adult birth mothers and birth fathers who are thinking about adoption or have already completed a placement. Click here to see support groups in Texas and support groups across the USA.
Emotional issues, problems, and concerns frequently increase during and after a pregnancy. This site looks carefully at depression and at other emotional issues that a birth mother and birth father face regarding adoption.
A birth mother's legal rights, just like a birth father's legal rights, are protected in every U.S. state including rights regarding the ending of the birth mother's and the birth father's parental rights. Your adoption agency, in conjunction with their attorney, should help you with your rights and with the adoption law and adoption procedures.
Infant safe haven laws have been added to many state statutes to help reduce infant abandonment and infanticide.
