If you are thinking of making an adoption plan for your child, you may be wondering how you would start the process.  You don’t have to be an expert in adoptions, but it is important to consult with the right experts. Giving your baby up for adoption is a dignified process of giving your baby a great home and luckily there are hundreds of families to choose from in Florida that want to adopt.

Making the decision to give your child up for adoption

The first step if you are considering giving your baby up for adoption is to speak with one of our adoption professionals to get all your questions answered and learn how to make an adoption plan.  Our professionals will get to know you and what qualities you may be looking for in an adoptive family when the time comes to match with a family.   Our professionals will also spend time with you figuring out what your financial situation is like and what living and medical expenses may come up as a result of your pregnancy.

After you choose adoption for your newborn child

Once you have decided that “giving your newborn baby up for adoption” is the best option for you, we will then help you to pick a family to match with.  We have potential adoptive parents who have been screened and background checked.  You can review profiles and pictures to get a sense of who each family is.

Choosing an adoptive family

Some of our waiting adoptive families are on our website, and you are welcome to browse their profiles now. It is never too late to find a family, even if your baby is already born. If you want, you can set up a phone call, zoom call, or even an in-person meeting with the prospective adoptive family. This is the time to talk about what your expectations for the adoption and communication will be. You can review pictures, letters, have phone calls, texts, and even visits. For more information, you can read our post on the first meeting with adoptive parents.

When can you give your child up for adoption?

When you give birth at the hospital, you will be in charge of every aspect, and we will spend time going over your birth plan ahead of the birth. 

The answer to your question “When can I give a child or baby up” for adoption, the answer is at any time, before or after the child is born.
