Finding an Adoption Agency Near Me In Oklahoma
If you have an unplanned pregnancy and choose to put your child up for adoption, you should choose the best adoption agency around. I recommend using Adoption Choices of Oklahoma. We at Adoption Choices of Oklahoma offer a wide variety of services, including counseling, family matching, financial assistance, housing and transportation, medical care, and post-placement support. We are a great option for women seeking to place their child up for adoption anywhere in Oklahoma.
Choosing an Adoptive Family
Upon choosing an Oklahoma adoption agency near you, think about the kind of family you wish your child to be raised by. A married couple could raise your child, a single parent, a same-sex couple, a heterosexual couple, a couple with children or no children, an older couple, or a younger couple. The choice is yours. It depends on who you would like to raise your child. You may wish for your child to be raised by a family with certain views. You can interview any prospective adoptive families to see if their views and values align with your own or not. This could help to inform your choice as well.
Home Studies for Prospective Adoptive Families
All prospective adoptive parents go through the home study process by a social worker on your Adoption Choices of Oklahoma team. Home studies include interviews of all who may be around the child, viewings of the home, and criminal and financial background checks. This process is a way for us to check out each prospective family to ensure the child is raised in a safe home where they will be cared for and loved.
Type of Adoption Agreement
Would you like future contact with your child? This can also help you to choose a family. Many families know what type of adoption agreement or future contact they wish to have with their child’s birth mothers. If you would like to have future visitation, phone calls, or letters from your child, you should choose an open or semi-open adoption agreement and look for a family who also wants a similar agreement. Otherwise, opt for a closed adoption agreement if you both would like to have no future contact or visitation. Your counselor can help you to weed through the prospective families and decide who is best for you, as well as what type of adoption agreement is best for you and your child.
Counseling for Birth Mothers
As a birth mother with Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, our counseling services are open for you to use. If you need or wish to have psychiatric care off-site, we can help you find and afford suitable mental health aid. If you wish to take part in a support group, we can help you find one that will best suit your needs. We only wish for you to be happy and healthy throughout and following your adoption experience.
Financial Assistance for Birth Mothers
If you are considering placing your child up for adoption, know that many of your expenses will be covered by your child’s adoptive family. This includes any financial assistance related to your rent, utilities, schooling, etc. Suppose you are a student in the middle of school. In that case, any financial assistance can be used to help with your bills and living expenses throughout your pregnancy and recovery post-delivery.
Housing and Transportation Assistance for Birth Mothers
Worried about housing assistance and transportation to doctor’s appointments? As a member of the Adoption Choices of Oklahoma family, we can help you find adequate housing and transportation during your pregnancy, as well as your recovery, post-delivery, as part of our post-placement services. We want to help make sure your pregnancy is as stress-free as possible, and you both are cared for.
Medical Care for Birth Mothers
We also help to cover your medical care, along with the help of your adoptive family. This means that regardless of whether or not you have insurance, any pregnancy-related bills will be covered and taken care of. You are in the best of hands with the Adoption Choices of Oklahoma family.
