What is an Oklahoma Adoption Plan, and How Do I Get Started?
An adoption plan focuses on the birth mother deciding the hospital she would like to give birth in and choosing the adoptive types and the adoptive families. The adoption plan is a long-term process that prioritizes the birth mother at the head of the decision-making. First, your adoption caseworker and counselor will be assigned to you, and they will help guide you through the decision-making process of your adoption plan. They will ensure that you are not alone, and they will be your helping hand. Adoption agencies in Oklahoma want birth mothers to know that we support them.
Choosing the Adoptive Type at Private Adoptions in OK
Your adoption caseworker and counselor will guide you through choosing the adoption type and family that best suits you. Private adoptions in OK want to make sure that birth mothers are aware of all their choices. The adoptive types that are available to birth mothers are open, closed, and semi-open adoption.
Open adoption means that the adoptive parents will have access to your personal documents, and you will also be able to organize meetings with the adoptive parents and your child according to the plans organized by you, the adoption caseworker, and the adoptive parents.
A semi-open adoption means there may be access to your personal documents, but this is not assured as it depends on your personal decision, which your circumstances will dictate. You will also be able to have access to your child.
On the other hand, a closed adoption means the adoptive parents will not have access to your personal documents, and you will not have any involvement with the adoptive parents or your child.
The adoption type you choose will be based on your own decision, and your adoption caseworker and counselor will help you make decisions.
Choosing the Adoptive Family at Adoption Agencies in Oklahoma
Alongside choosing the adoption type, it is also important to choose the adoptive family. There are many different types of adoptive families, including LGBTQ+, heterosexual, traditional families, transracial families, and single-parent households. Of course, the adoptive family that you choose will have much more to them than any of these identities, but it will be a starting point to considering which adoptive family you would like to choose, as each adoptive family brings something different to the table.
Your adoption caseworker will provide you with a group of adoptive families, and you will work through choosing the adoptive family based on your opinions and circumstances. It is a huge deal choosing an adoptive family, and private adoptions in OK want to be sure birth mothers are proud of their decisions, so we will always provide you with the benefits of each adoptive family to help you to choose.
Adoption Plans During Labor and Delivery in Oklahoma
Another part of the adoption plan in Oklahoma is labor and delivery. Your adoption caseworker and counselor will help you decide which hospital to give birth in and which doctor you choose to track your pregnancy journey. Giving your baby up for adoption means keeping track of how you want the adoption to go, in terms of whether you want the adoptive parents at the hospital while you give birth or whether you would prefer someone you trust there, like your adoption counselor.
It is also important that private adoptions in OK ensure you have a healthy diet through good food and prenatal meds leading up to the labor and delivery. In addition, you will have access to an accountability partner during the adoption process, and this person will be your adoption caseworker or counselor.
Adoption agencies in Oklahoma want to ensure birth mothers feel comfortable during their adoption journey. So we ensure that leading up to labor and delivery, and afterward, your home is a comfortable space and that we make our adoption agency somewhere you can go for help whenever you need it.
