Placing baby for adoption
Are you considering placing your baby for adoption? We know this is a difficult time for you, and we understand that this decision must be carefully considered. In order for you to feel comfortable with adoption, you need to understand how the process works and what the results of adoption will be for both you and your baby.

An unplanned pregnancy can be a terrifying experience. Having someone who will listen to you and can understand the emotions you are going through can be very helpful. Our counselors at Forever Bound Adoption can help you through this difficult experience. They understand and will listen. They can also explain the adoption process to you so that you understand that option, but there is never any obligation.
As you think about the precious life that is growing inside of you, know that adoption is all about love. It is a way to offer your child a life experience and opportunities that you may not be able to provide at this time. You will be able to choose parents for your child that are prepared, and anxious to care for, and to share their love with your baby. Many birth mothers are not in a good place financially, physically, or emotionally to care for a child. Recognizing that is nothing to be ashamed of. Understanding that adoption may provide better opportunities for your child and a better chance at life is a very brave thing. While it can be a heartbreaking decision for you to make, it can be the best decision you will ever make for both you and your baby.

Why should I choose adoption over pregnancy termination?
While either one of these options can be a very difficult decision, there are some things that are important to keep in mind. Pregnancy termination may seem like the quicker, easier way, but it comes with painful consequences. Feelings of guilt and regret, knowing that you ended the life of your baby, and feelings of selfishness, can be overwhelming.
With adoption, though you will experience the long months of pregnancy, your emotions will be completely different. You will experience peace of mind knowing that you not only gifted your baby with life, but that you loved the child enough to give him/her more than what you could provide. You will always be loved by the adoptive family whose life you changed, and you will always be loved by the child that you loved enough to offer something more.
How much does it cost to give up my baby for adoption?
Nothing. For a birth mother placing her baby for adoption, there is no cost to you at all. The adoptive couple that you choose to place your baby with will cover all expenses. Forever Bound Adoption will manage your expenses for you and see that everything is taken care of.
What does open adoption mean?
Open adoption means that you are able to stay part of your child’s life, if you choose, as they grow to adulthood, and you get to choose how open you would like the adoption to be. Whether through pictures, texts, letters, or occasional visits, you, in cooperation with the adoptive parents, can decide how you want to participate in the child’s life.
How do I find a family for my baby, and can I pick which one I want?
A licensed adoption agency like Forever Bound Adoption can offer you many choices of potential adoptive parents, and you can choose which ones you would like to meet before you decide on the one you like the best. Our couples have been well screened and trained so that they are prepared to love and care for your baby. You will be able to tell us about your preferences, and we will show you couples that meet those preferences. After you are “matched” with a couple you will be able to visit with them as often as you like to better get to know them.
Will the adoptive parents be at the hospital?
Having the adoptive parents at the hospital during the birth is entirely up to you, it’s whatever you feel more comfortable with.
Can I see and hold my baby at the hospital?
If you would like to see and hold your baby at the hospital you absolutely can, it’s your decision. Some birth mothers cherish that small window of time with their baby, while others choose not to.
Does the father of the baby need to know about my plans for adoption?
The laws concerning birth father’s rights are different in each state. They will be disused with you and addressed. Some birth fathers choose to be involved and others choose not to.
