Oklahoma Adoption Agency Support for Pregnant Women Considering Adoption
Facing an unplanned pregnancy can bring with it a world of uncertainty. The life you had planned before you suddenly seems to become derailed and impossible. But you are not alone. You have options available to you that can allow you to still proceed in whatever way you’d like.
If you’ve begun researching your unplanned pregnancy options, you may be aware that adoption is one of the available choices you can make. That, through one of the adoption agencies in Oklahoma, you can place your baby in a loving, caring and supportive adoptive family. However, selecting exactly which adoption agency to use can be a challenge in and of itself. That’s why it’s important to research the adoption centers near you and learn what services each one provides. Each location may vary slightly, so you’ll want to think about what kind of help you’re looking for.
3 Types of Adoption Agency Support We Provide
At Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we welcome pregnant women and expectant mothers from all backgrounds and walks of life. We do not discriminate, regardless of race, gender, age, religion, political standing or sexual orientation. If you are wanting to put your baby up for adoption, we are here for you. Our highly trained adoption professionals are well-equipped to help you to the best of our abilities. Here are several types of adoption agency support that our adoption agency provides.
1. Financial Assistance Adoption Agency Support
We understand that one of the reasons you may choose adoption relates to finances. If you find yourself in this situation, our adoption agency offers financial assistance on an as-needed basis. So, be sure to talk with your adoption caseworker about how you can qualify. Some of the court-approved living expenses you could get financial support with include, but are not limited to:
- Phone Bill
- Medical care (i.e. doctor’s appointments and prenatal care)
If you need additional financial assistance, consult with your adoption caseworker. There are government and state-funded programs that may be able to help you as well.
2. Safe Housing and Transportation Adoption Agency Support
Having a safe, healthy and stable environment is important while you are pregnant. If you are living in a place where you don’t feel safe, or that doesn’t promote the health and wellbeing of you and your baby, our adoption agency can help. We can arrange for you to have temporary safe housing for the duration of your pregnancy, up to several weeks after you give birth.
Your safety and health — and that of your baby — is one of our top priorities. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible during your pregnancy and adoption journey. We can also assist you with getting to and from doctor’s appointments with our transportation services. So, if you are in need of safe housing or transportation, please don’t hesitate to ask.
3. Counseling and Post-Placement Adoption Agency Support
Experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption can be stressful and overwhelming. You may feel the full range of emotions while you are going through the adoption process, but that’s okay. It’s completely natural and to be expected. Adoption is a complex and emotional decision to make. However, that doesn’t mean that you have to go through your adoption journey alone.
At Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, all expectant mothers have the opportunity to make an appointment with one of our specialized adoption counselors. This provides you with a safe, confidential and nonjudgmental space to navigate your thoughts and feelings, and help you best determine what is best for you and your baby. Even if you haven’t fully made up your mind about adoption, you can still come and speak with us. Our counseling services also extend to immediate members of your family, and the child’s birth father, if they’d like someone to talk to as well.
