What happens after I decide to place a baby up for adoption?
After you decide to put your child up for adoption, the Oklahoma adoption process begins. You will be placed with one of our counselors who will be with you from the time you decide to place the baby up to 6 months after the baby is born. With your counselor, you will know your options as the birth mother. You will decide what kind of adoption you wish to pursue (open, semi-open, closed). With this private adoption agency, you will then start the matching process.
What is the matching process?
The matching process is when the birth mother chooses the prospective adoptive parents, who have been approved to adopt. There is a lengthy process necessary before approving the adoptive parents. This process proves prospective parents are willing and fit for parenting and adoption. The agency will not follow through with them if they have not met the necessary criteria to adopt your baby. With a process such as this, Adoption Choices of Oklahoma makes sure that your baby will end up in the safe and loving arms of parents that are fit to be their parents.
A home study is one of the most important steps in the adoption process. This is done to ensure that a child is placed in the best home possible. The home study is required by law for most adoptions in the United States. An entire home study can take up to 2-3 months. The reason for this is to be as thorough as possible.
Home study is also beneficial for the birth mother. This way, she can be reassured of the parents she is choosing for her baby.
Of course, the birth mother is in complete control throughout. Some questions may come up, but the vetting process is so thorough that your baby will end up in a loving home. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma ensures that the baby will end up in the best home possible. That being, with parents being chosen by the birth mother.
