Adoption Placement Support: How Can I Ensure That My Child Will Be Placed in a Safe and Loving Home?

By Noah Abrams

If you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption, you have to navigate a whirlwind of emotions. Feelings of grief, sadness, and anxiety can be mentally draining on birth mothers. Once you choose to place your child, you have to make more decisions regarding the both of you. A specific reservation you may have is knowing if your child will truly be in a safe and loving home. If you partner with us, we will do everything in our power to ensure this is the case for your child. Planning to place your child through adoption in Florida and looking for reputable adoption agencies? You are in the right place!

At Adoption Choices of Florida, we specialize in helping birth mothers throughout the adoption process. One way we do this is by ensuring you choose the ideal adoptive family for your child in your eyes. In addition to this, our adoption agency has its own protocols and standards that prospective adoptive families must meet. We will discuss those protocols and assure you of finding a safe and loving home for your child. 

Protocols Put in Place for Potential Adoptive Families

As mentioned, birth mothers may worry about their child’s safety and living experience if adoption is considered. It’s completely understandable to have this fear and be anxious about it. If you are, please understand that we have a thorough screening process. This is put in place to ensure the potential adoptive families we work with are fit to adopt. Some of the protective measures put in place to work with the best potential adoptive families include:

  • Home Studies. One of the ways we screen potential adoptive families is through a home study. The home study ensures that the household and financial state is good for the child. We use this as a way to assess how suitable their household is for your child. The home study consists of background checks, interviews, home inspections, and documentation reviews. 
  • Adoption U Adoptive Parent Training: When potential adoptive families partner with us, they will have access to our Adoptive Parent Training course. It consists of training videos from adoption professionals, detailing each step of the adoption journey and interactive activities. Prospective adoptive families will learn how to navigate the adoption process while learning at their own pace. Additionally, you will find great resources to refer to if needed, and ultimately become Adoption U certified.

We want birth mothers and adoptive families to be comfortable with everything surrounding the adoption. These protocols help to educate and work with the best adoptive families. It also gives birth mothers reassurance that their child will live safely with a loving family. 

Qualities of an Ideal Adoptive Family

We cannot stress how much birth mothers, even if it’s teen pregnancy, are in control of their adoption journey.  From creating a birth and adoption plan, to choosing the adoptive family for your child, you hold the authority.. It is also important to know which qualities should be present and which ones you are looking for specifically. Some of the qualities you should look for in an adoptive family include: 

  • Stability and a loving environment. This may be the most important quality, as birth mothers who consider adoption feel like they can’t provide this for their child. Because of this, having a strong family dynamic and relationship is key. A birth mother should feel the love adoptive families have for each other. This will show her that her child will be loved the same, which helps to ease the birth mother’s mind/. 
  • Values and morals: The birth mother and adoptive families’ values and morals should align. When they do, it allows for transparency and open communication. Rightfully so, birth mothers would want an adoptive family that has the same thoughts on important matters. Because of this, it is important for birth mothers to be able to choose adoptive families with similar perspectives. Topics such as education, religion, parental standards, and more can be barometers for the birth mother’s choices.

No matter what, you have full authority over who becomes the adoptive parent(s). You should reflect on what really matters and is important to you. This will help you narrow down options and be able to decide the best fit for you.
