What is Adoption?
Adoption is the permanent placement of your child with an adoptive family. Adoption is not giving up a baby. Discovering you are pregnant is scary enough. If you know you are unable to parent the child, for any reason, adoption might be a great opportunity. If you are experiencing an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy, keep reading or contact Adoption Choices of Florida now.
Three Types of Adoption: open, semi-open, or closed
- Open adoption is when both families have open communication. The adoptive family can meet the birth mother and choose how often visits are made. This way, you have the chance to see your child grow and still be a part of their life.
- Semi-open adoption is when information is shared through a third-party agency, in this case, Adoption Choices of Florida. The birth mother can see the child through pictures or video calls can be set up. This is easier to plan than in-person visits if they live in another state.
- Closed adoption is the last type. This is where no information is shared between families. We would choose the adoptive family for you. This option is for more private people or if you do not wish to have a relationship with the family nor child.

Your family could be abusive, or you might not have enough space. You could not have a current place to stay at. Whatever the case, we can provide safe, clean housing during your pregnancy.
- The most common concern with pregnancy is medical bills. The most important would be prenatal visits. This is to check up on the health of you and the baby.
