Common Questions of Birth Moms
We are here to assist you with your needs during pregnancy. We also provide compassionate counseling, help you understand all your options and, if you choose, assist you in selecting a family for your baby. We are in your corner throughout the entire process!
Yes! You can choose the family for your baby by selecting from loving parents screened by Florida Baptist Children’s Homes. You will have the opportunity to learn about the families through profiles they have created to share with birth mothers.
This will depend on your preference, legal aspects of the adoption and the cooperation of the birth father. Many birth mothers want their baby placed with the family at the hospital, soon after the birth.
Yes. Your adoption specialist will work with you to make a personalized hospital plan that allows you to determine ahead of time the amount of contact you would like with your baby.
We offer you three distinct adoption options: open, semi-open and closed.
In most cases, you can choose an adoption that is semi-open which allows for ongoing updates, through letters and photos arranged through the agency. Some adoptions are open which include visits. At Florida Baptist Children’s Homes you will decide the level of openness in your adoption. The adoptive families we work with respect and understand your need to know that your child is well cared for and loved.
Yes. After you sign a release of parental rights, the child will legally become a permanent member of the adoptive family.
The birth father’s rights must also be considered when planning adoption. If he disagrees with adoption, we will work with the court to determine if his rights can be terminated. Some birth fathers are very involved and supportive and can be as much a part of the adoption as you would like him to be. If he is not an involved party, he can sign legal paperwork indicating that he is not asking for custody or he has a right to be notified of the hearing. We will work with you to determine his level of involvement and cooperation and the best way to handle the legal situation with the birth father.
You will need to provide us with any information that you have regarding the birth father . We will help you utilize the resources of the government and partner agencies that may be able to locate him.
We encourage you to pass on medical information and social history to your child. You may also send photos and letters to the family through the agency or as arranged. You may want to write a letter to your child sharing special information about yourself or provide a gift that will help your child understand in the future that your decision to place him or her for adoption was based on love and desiring the best for their future.
You do not need an attorney and there are no costs to you. We will handle all of the necessary legal details on your behalf.
Adoption is a loving decision based entirely on the best interest of the child. Adoptive parents are prepared in every way to provide for your child and it could actually be the most caring, selfless decision you ever make.
Yes! Birth parents are definitely involved in selecting the prospective adoptive parents. We have many families already approved for adoption, waiting to care for a child just like yours. You can speak with an adoption specialist to learn more about the process of selecting an adoptive family. We offer adoptions that allow for varying access to children once they are placed in a loving adoptive home.
Financial assistance may be available to help you with pregnancy-related expenses during your pregnancy and for up to six weeks after delivery. You can talk to an adoption specialist to learn more about this assistance.
