Why Should I Choose a Local Adoption Agency?
As a birth mother facing an unexpected pregnancy, you probably have many unanswered questions. One question we are asked by many birth mothers is “Why should I choose to work with a local adoption agency?” If you are considering giving your baby up for adoption, there are several adoption service options available to you. You can access services through a national adoption agency, an adoption attorney, or through a local Utah and Idaho adoption agency like Forever Bound Adoption.
At Forever Bound Adoption, a full-service adoption agency, we believe the services you need as a birth mother are very important. We want to make sure you have all of the resources and information you need to make the difficult decisions you face. We also want to ensure that you have options for ongoing success after the adoption process is over.
When you work with an adoption agency in a state other than the one where you live, the agency will often fly you to the state where your adoptive placement will take place. They will probably pay for temporary housing and other living expenses while you are waiting to give birth to your baby. However, once adoptive placement has occurred, you will generally return to your home state, far away from the baby and the adoptive family you have chosen for them.
When you choose to work with Forever Bound Adoption, you have the opportunity to select from a group of carefully screened adoptive families located in Utah and Idaho. This means that your baby and their adoptive family will live much closer to you after placement has occurred. If you choose to have an open adoption, living close to one another will make it much easier for you to have an ongoing relationship, and greatly increase your chances of being involved in important events throughout your baby’s life. Your concerns, like “Can I meet with the adoptive couple?” and “Can I still see my baby?” become much easier to resolve when you live near the family you have chosen for your baby.
Another benefit of working with a local adoption agency is that your caseworker will be much more familiar with the resources and services available in the area where you live. Your caseworker will meet with you regularly, in a location convenient for you, to discuss your needs during your pregnancy as well as your plans and goals after adoptive placement. They will explain every part of the process for giving your baby up for adoption in Utah. Our kind and compassionate case workers also help you access ongoing counseling support, local housing assistance, food assistance, educational assistance, and birth parent education and support groups. All of our birth parent services are offered to you free of charge, even if you ultimately decide not to place your baby for adoption. Forever Bound Adoption’s goal is to make sure that you feel peaceful in the decisions you are making, and hopeful for a bright future for both you and your baby.
