We understand that adoption may not be your first choice, but life gets in the way. Also, you love your child and only want them to have the best life.

We know adoption in Florida is a hard, emotional process, and we want you to feel supported. There are many different kinds of adoption as well.

The Highs and Lows of Florida Adoption

Having a baby is highly emotional, and the adoption process makes it even more emotional. With an unplanned pregnancy, some emotions you may feel are stress, confusion, fear, and sometimes even anger. This is all expected, but we want you to still be able to feel happy, relieved, excited, and supported. Some of the resources to overcome the emotions you are feeling is journaling, attending a support group, or counseling. Journaling is a great way for anyone to express how they feel. You can write about anything that is on your mind. Our staff can assist you in finding any of these resources or be there to answer any questions. Adoption in Miami does not have to be a stress-filled process.

We will guide you through making an adoption plan where you will make all the decisions. One of the decisions you will make is how open the adoption is. An open adoption means you stay in contact with the adoptive family and child. A closed adoption is the opposite, and it is the birth mother’s choice. Our organization is completely inclusive, meaning we will not leave you in the dark. We are also unbiased towards same-sex couples, religion, nationality, and more.
