Choosing an adoption professional to assist you with your adoption plan is one of the most important decisions for both you and your child. It’s important that your desired adoption agency works in your best interests, builds an adoption plan around your needs, has open communication, and is licensed.
When you choose to work with Adoption Choices of Colorado, you can be sure that our agency and adoption specialists meet each of these requirements!

Step 2. Schedule an initial meeting

Meet with an adoption specialist to go over your unique circumstance and specific needs. You will complete paperwork and begin developing your adoption plan.

Step 3. Pre-natal care, financial assistance, select type of adoption, and begin reviewing family profiles.

We want to make sure you are well supported, comfortable, and confident with your decision to choose adoption. Our agency will provide court approved living expenses for birth mothers who need the help. We will help you find assistance in paying the medical expenses that are a result of your pregnancy and delivery. We can help you find or apply for housing, and help with paying your rent during your pregnancy and up to four to six weeks after your delivery.

Step 4. Choosing an Adoptive Family

At our agency, your adoption professional will help you find an adoptive family that best matches your needs and requirements. You will always be able to choose the family for your child, no matter where you are at in your pregnancy or adoption plan.
While it can be a difficult process, you have many options to help select the right adoptive family for you and your baby’s needs. This may include, but not be limited to the following:
• Religious preferences
• Parents’ ages
• Length of marriage
• If existing children are in the home
• Personality traits of adopted parents or their current children
• Professions
• If one parent will be a stay-at-home parent
• Location of the family’s home
• Extended family

We will bring you family profiles to review!

• Living in a multi-cultural community

Step 5. Pregnancy, Birth, and Hospital Plan

A hospital plan can be a list or a document detailing what you do or do not want during your hospital stay. Creating one before you go into labor helps you mentally prepare for the process. It also allows your adoption professionals and adoptive parents to understand exactly what you want your stay and delivery to look like. Here are some questions to consider when creating it.
• Who do you want to be present during the birth?
• Do you know your state’s wait time for consent for adoption?
• Will you want alone time with your baby post-birth?
• Do you want to take pictures with your baby? With the adoptive family?
• Do you want visitors during your hospital stay?
• Are you going to want to name your baby?
• Are you prepared for emotions post-adoption?
These are hard questions, and it’s important that you don’t get bogged down thinking there is a right or wrong answer to any of them. Adoption will be difficult no matter what you do, so do what you feel is best for you and your child.

Step 6. Post-Placement Support

Through each step of your adoption journey, Adoption Choices of Colorado is here to help. You don’t have to face an unplanned pregnancy alone.Although placing a baby for adoption may be a difficult choice, we will be there to provide support, including counseling if you would like. We understand how important it is for you to stay healthy and well taken care of, and we are here to support you through your adoption plan. We want to help you customize a plan that you are 100% comfortable with. Counseling and legal representation are provided to you at no cost. We also have many resources to help you during and after the placement of your child.

We provide counseling to you as the birth mother, the birth father if he is interested as well as your family and other children. We want you to have a great support system and we believe that helping others around you understand adoption and what the future brings sets you up for success.

We won’t judge you, we won’t pressure you, we will be waiting to discuss your options!
