If you are pregnant and you have already come to the conclusion that parenting and raising a child is not the right choice for you at this point, then you are probably left thinking about whether terminating the pregnancy or adoption is the right choice.
Although you may seek advice from family, friends, and the father of the child, only you can decide which option is right for you. No one should pressure you into one choice over the other. Here at Juliana Gaita, P.A. we are here to support you during this time. There is no judgment from our office and we will talk through all the options with you.
If you decide that adoption is the right choice for you, our counselors and legal team are on standby to discuss exactly what adoption is. The first step is gathering the information. Everything about adoption is confidential.
We will meet with you to go over all the stages of adoption and talk through why you are considering adoption.
If you choose to continue to go forward with making an adoption plan, our counselors will sit with you to go over your budget and expenses that may come up with the pregnancy. Together, we will determine what living expenses you may need assistance with. We will also help you to obtain medical insurance and set up your medical appointments for you. You choose the doctor’s office you feel most comfortable with.
After you first few appointments, you may want to start thinking about what you are looking for in a family to adopt your child. You will also want to think about what type of contact you want with that family and your child after the adoption. Once we talk though those options it is time to start the matching process. All of our waiting families are home-study ready, which means they have gone through all the backgrounds screens and checks necessary to adopt a child. We have families waiting from all around the Country. The waiting families have created profile books for you to look through to get to know them. After looking through their profiles you may be ready to match and choose or you may have questions and want to set up a phone call, Zoom call or in person meeting.
Once you match with a family, you can continue to get to know them throughout the pregnancy. You may want to send notes and pictures back and forth.
We are here to support you and your decision.
As you are getting closer to the birth of your baby, we will help you create a birth plan. How do you envision giving birth? Will you want to be in the same room as the baby? Do you want the Adoptive Parents there? Is there financial assistance? These are all things you get to decide.
Once you are discharged from the hospital it will be time to sign all of the legal paperwork. You are encouraged to have your attorney go over all of the documents with you. We will pay for any attorney of your choosing. We want you to feel happy, secure, and informed throughout the entire process.
If you are thinking “I don’t want to be pregnant but I don’t want to terminate” and you want a judgment-free place to discuss your options call or text us anytime at 561-869-3703. *
