Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.
It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.
Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.
You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.
One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.
As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.
This weekend was well spent with family, especially little miss baby Madison! How cute is she?! Family gatherings are so important to us, and they give us a chance to play with the little ones as we cannot wait to be parents! Madison was full of giggles yesterday, and was a happy girl after I fed her a bottle. Truly such a joy!
Rooney and Ziggy love the beach! This was our second time bringing the boys, and they were so happy! They love to run along the water and enjoy the open space. It's so special making memories like these!
We had a blast making homemade pizzas with Jennas cousins! They each got to make their own pizza with their favorite toppings. They had so much fun rolling the dough and seeing the final product! We love spending time in the kitchen and making meals for our family.
Dave and I recently spent time in Norfolk, Virginia! This is one of our favorite places to visit, as my closest friend has recently moved there with her new husband and adorable dog, Graham! They live minutes from the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, which is great for beach time with friends, family and our pets! We are so grateful to be able to travel to places to see our loved ones and keep close relationships with the people who mean most to us. We had a great weekend and look forward to our next visit, since we just found out my best friend is expecting a baby! Dave and I hope to have a child of our own, who will most definitely have a beach buddy to play with!
Today we took advantage of the sunshine and warm weather as we head into spring! It was a great opportunity to let the dogs get their exercise and work on their training. After lots of running around and fetching their favorite toys, they were exhausted! Dave made sure they got their favorite treats for being such good boys.
