Planning an adoption from the hospital

By Anthony Avram

An unplanned pregnancy can introduce a fold of new problems into your newly beginning adult life. If you’re scouring the Internet everywhere, looking for where to go, you’ve come to the right place. By developing an adoption plan for you with the help of an experienced adoption counselor, we’ll take the work out of your hands. You’ll be able to work on whatever you’d like in your free time while we safely remove the stress from your mind and ensure your child grows up in the perfect family for them. 

If you are coming here at the last minute, then that’s okay too. By that, we mean that you would like to put up your child for adoption in the hospital. Time management is a crucial skill, but one that should not give you stress during this already tense process of adoption. Putting up your child for adoption in the hospital is a simple process and one that birth mothers frequently undergo in recent years. This does not make you an ill-prepared mother, and we will give you the same amount of support we would give anyone else. If you are planning to put up your child for adoption in the hospital, please find your adoption service provider near you at Adoption Choices of Florida

How does a hospital adoption work? 

A hospital adoption is just like a regular adoption, except that you will not have as much time to decide the future steps for your baby as someone with multiple months of knowledge may have. Nevertheless, we will offer financial assistance and expert legal aid during these trying times. Just like a regular adoption, it is important to make an adoption plan, where you go over the steps you will take with an adoption counselor. Our adoption counselor will be experienced in the hospital adoption process and receptive to your stresses and desires.  

You will want to consider whether you want an open, closed, or semi-open adoption, i.e., the levels of contact you would like with the adoptive parents in the process. Your adoption counselor will also provide you with a list of prospective families so you can decide what family you would like to promise your child. You also may want to consider other factors, such as whether you would like the adoptive parents with you in the delivery room. In that case, you can give them away right then and there. From the beginning to the end of the process, you will have 24-48 hours in the hospital before your child is given away. 

We want to stress that although it may seem like you do not have enough time in this process, it is always enough to come to us. Our adoption counselors have experience with time pressure and will be able to address your concerns in no time at all. 

Who should I contact to get the adoption process started? 

Even if you are doing a last-minute adoption, please contact Adoption Choices of Florida at (883) 352-3678 or text us at 904-559-1251 to get the adoption process started. We are a licensed adoption agency that offers all the support you could want for you and your baby. If you choose to contact us moments before you go to the hospital, we will still be able to provide you with an adoption counselor if you still have more questions about the hospital adoption process. You can also contact the prospective adoptive families we have provided you and see if they may want to join you during this difficult process at the hospital.
