Choosing a Local Adoption at 8 or 9 months Pregnant

By Anthony Avram

If you are 8 to 9 months into an unplanned pregnancy, you may be wondering what the best course of action is to secure your child’s forever family. Taking care of a child is a lot of work, and it requires preparation months in advance. You need to order a crib, order clothes, take time off work, etc. Because of this, it is important to begin creating a plan early. You may choose to parent your child, or you may choose to place them with loving adoptive parents. 

At Adoption Choices of Florida, we will help you develop an adoption plan with the help of an experienced adoption specialist. We are a full-service, licensed adoption agency that operates all around Florida and will help you figure out how to start the adoption process. 

What does the adoption intake process look like at 8-9 months? 

By no means do you have to choose a robust adoption plan for your child straight away. Despite stressing the importance of planning in the opening paragraph, it is also of the utmost importance that these plans are not formed under duress or stress. Waiting until the final months of your pregnancy to begin working with a licensed adoption agency like Adoption Choices of Florida is common and frequently has benefits. We will give you the same support that we would give anybody else. It is even possible to begin the adoption intake process in the hospital after your baby has been born. 

Overall, the adoption intake process at 8-9 months does not look very different from an adoption process that begins much earlier. You will still meet with an adoption counselor who will help you form an adoption plan. This adoption plan will include details about the level of communication you would like to maintain with your child after they are put up for adoption. It will also include details about the prospective parents you would like to see your child with. Keep in mind that this plan is not inflexible and can be changed up to 24-48 hours after the child’s birth. At Adoption Choices of Florida, flexibility is important, and anyone at any stage in the pregnancy process can come to us for aid. 

What adoption resources are available to me? 

As a pregnant mother, Adoption Choices of Florida offers innumerable benefits to you for choosing to go through with this courageous process. First of all, we offer adoption services everywhere in Florida, including Tampa, Gainesville, Miami, Jacksonville, etc. Your location will not be a problem for us to get in contact with you. 

As a licensed adoption agency, Adoption Choices of Florida is able to offer financial aid throughout your pregnancy. We will be able to ensure that your grocery and hospital bills get paid so that you can focus on being healthy for your child. In addition, we are able to provide excellent prenatal care to ensure your stability and comfort before you deliver the child. If you are having housing difficulties, no worries! 

We can also help with securing you a comfortable living space for you to reside in both before and after your pregnancy. Keep in mind that our dedication to caring does not stop after your child is with their new family. We continue to maintain a long-lasting dedication to your personal health and care and can provide you with benefits after the pregnancy as well. We are also able to provide counseling services to ease your stress and anxiety. Our adoption professionals have seen your experiences many times before, and no judgment will be necessary. We will simply aid you with minimal cost to you. 

When is the earliest I can work with an adoption agency? 

If you are earlier along in your pregnancy, reading this article may make you a bit excited and eager to work with us. You may already be looking at our website, trying to figure out when is the earliest time you can contact an adoption agency. You can get started as early as you’d like. This won’t constitute much; it will just be the beginning of the adoption process. However, the earlier you start, the better you may feel. You will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and better plan the life that you want for your baby.

Nevertheless, keep in mind that starting the adoption process at 8-9 months is plenty of time. If you’re sure about adoption, go for it! But if you want more time to think and discuss, then that’s okay too. Take as much time as you need to.
