Can I Put My Baby Up For Adoption In Oklahoma After Their Birth?

Birth mothers often feel as though they can not put their baby up for adoption after they have arrived. That is not true at all! You can still choose to put your baby up for adoption in Oklahoma after they have already arrived. Here at Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, our staff has experience with all types of adoption, including after-birth adoptions. It is important to know that there is no right or wrong time to choose adoption. Giving baby up for adoption is a choice that you can make at any time whether you decide to early on in your pregnancy, in the hospital before you give birth, and after you have given birth to your baby.

You Have Options After The Birth Of Your Baby

It is important for you and other birth mothers to know the options you have after you have given birth to your baby. An adoption is always an option for you. We are also a baby safe haven if you wish to leave your baby with us. In order to leave your baby with us, he or she has to be seventy-two hours old or less and unharmed. When it comes to the adoption process, you will go through the same steps as if you decide on adoption early on in your pregnancy.

The Adoption Process In Oklahoma For After Birth Adoptions

At Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we will assign one of our adoption caseworkers to you. They will provide you with all the information you need to get your adoption started. Next, you will be able to look at adoptive families and parents. You can always request other families and parents as well. The families and parents we have been waiting for have all gone through extensive background checks as well. Once you decide on what adoptive family or parent you want to work with, you can decide what kind of Oklahoma adoption plan you want to have. You can choose from open, semi-open, and closed adoption plans. Here at Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we want you to have your ideal adoption plan, so if at any time you want to change what type of plan you have, you can. The final step is setting up the type of communication you want to have with your baby and the adoptive family. After you decide what type of communication you want, your adoption plan will be complete, and your baby will go to the adoptive family or parent.

How Can A Newborn Adoption Process Be Different?

The Oklahoma adoption process can be different in terms of how fast you move through the steps of the adoption process. Depending on your situation, you can get through the adoption process at a quick pace, or you can take your time as if you decided on adoption and started the process at the beginning of your pregnancy. No matter what your situation is, and if you need to move fast, our staff at Adoption Choices of Oklahoma are here for you. We will help guide you and provide you with the support you need throughout your adoption journey. There are different reasons as to why birth mothers move through the adoption process quickly when doing an after-birth adoption. It can be because of financial reasons. Some are not ready to be a parent, unsupportive family members, or the father could not be involved or around anymore. Whatever your reason is, we are here to help.
