Is adoption the right choice for you ?
Forever After Adoptions will never attempt to convince you that adoption is the right choice for you. This is your baby and your choice. We are hear to listen to you. We are here to support you. We will never advise you on whether this is the right decision. Adoption is a choice that needs to be made by you…perhaps with the advice and support of the father of your baby, your parents, close friends and/or religious advisor.
It is our belief that most women make the decision to give their child up for adoption because they want what is best for their child. They feel ill equipped to provide emotionally, physically and/or financially for their child, and so they provide their child with a family that will. It is a big decision…perhaps the biggest that you will ever make in your life. It affects many people. You and your family, your child’s father and his family, the adopting parents and their family…and of course the child. Adoption is permanent. If your life changes down the road and you feel that you are in a better position to be able to parent, the adoption cannot be reversed. Careful consideration needs to be given.
We know that you might have come to our site expecting to find information that might help convince you to give your baby up for adoption, but we know that there are many thoughts and opinions and a lot of written material available to pregnant women that outlines the pros and cons of adoption.. You will find myriads of videos, books, blogs, and informational sites that you may find helpful. We recommend that you educate yourself so that you can make an informed choice.
Contacting Forever After Adoptions does not obligate you to choose adoption; it just gives us a chance to get to know you so that we can help you move forward with the option that makes the most sense for youWe are a private service so all of your information and the phone call itself are completely confidential.
What is open adoption?
Forever After Adoptions is committed to creating your adoption plan the way that YOU want it planned. Today, women have more control over their adoption plans than ever before by choosing nearly every aspect of the adoption. Adoption is the legal act of permanently placing a child with someone other than the child’s biological parents. Open adoption includes the birth parents and adoptive parents meeting one another, sharing full identifying information, and having direct access to ongoing contact over the years. There are many benefits to open adoption. The birth parents feel at peace knowing they have created the adoption. Ongoing contact through the years enables birth parents to confirm that they made the best decision for their child. The adoptive parents feel chosen and entitled to parent their child. In addition, because they know the birth parents, they do not fear an unknown figure. The child benefits most of all because they know where they came from and where they belong. They also have access to information about their birth parents including cultural and medical history.. There are no rules as to the amount of contact .Some families opt for annual pictures and letters, or perhaps no ongoing contact while some of our families have chosen to have regular “visits” with the birth parents and their extended families. These visits may be arranged annually or more. he important thing is knowing that the type of adoption plan that is best for you and your child is YOUR choice.
