What are My Pregnancy Options in Florida?

You are a woman who found herself unexpectedly pregnant. You may be scared, worried, shocked, or even angry about this predicament. It may not have been in the cards to get pregnant right now, or you may not want to have been a parent in the first place. At Adoption Choices of Florida, we respect your decision and would like to help wherever we can. If you are a Florida resident with an unplanned pregnancy, your options are available to you in all our baby adoption agencies in Florida. No matter what age you have this child, your financial or living situation, we can provide options for your pregnancy. 

Florida Adoptions to Choose From 

Contact our Adoption Choices of Florida to get started to begin your adoption journey. You will be set up with a social worker/ case manager to help you get started. They will help explain the adoption process and how all the decisions are made through you. You can choose three basic types of adoption to cater to your needs. 

  • Open Adoption: This adoption plan is when you will be able to contact your child and the adoptive family frequently. Whether it’s updated on the child’s upbringing or any important events and achievements, you will know more personal information about the adoptive family than the basic information provided to you for their profile. They will also know more information about you such as your personal address, medical and more. Through the adoption agency, you can plan in-person visits, video or phone calls, and send pictures and letters to each other. 
  • Closed Adoption: You do not have to share any personal information about yourself other than your medical information, name, and basic information. Everything else is anonymous. There will be no contact of any kind between the adoptive parents or yourself. If you choose to stay anonymous and start a clean slate, it’s your choice. 
  • Semi-Open Adoption: This adoption option is to keep some anonymity about certain personal information but still catch up on your child’s upbringing without having to insert yourself into their new life. 

Private Adoption Services in Florida

  • Adoption Plan: Adoption Choices of Florida can set you up with an adoption social worker to help you understand how to create an adoption plan. Based on whether you want to have an open, closed, or semi-open adoption, they will provide a list of potential adoptive parent candidates that will be in preference to your values and requirements. 
  • Birth Plan: Your birth plan is when you plan out who you want in the hospital room with you, whether you want to hold your child or not, anyone can or cannot be invited into the hospital room during the birth. The person who will speak on your behalf and make sure it goes smoothly is our very own Adoption Choices of Florida adoption social worker.
  • Financial Assistance: If you are not able to take care of your child financially, we can provide some assistance in that area. If you need food, transportation, or housing for the following months, we can accommodate and help you get set up. We have several options such as loans, grants, and the adoptive parents’ contributions. Your overall health is important to us and for your child. 
  • Medical Assistance: If you do not have a doctor or do not have enough money or insurance to cover the daily doctor appointments, we provide medical assistance and options for a doctor. We follow your decision on who you want to choose and provide transportation to and from your appointments. Your condition and the child’s condition will help with a speedy recovery process for yourself physically. 
  • Counseling: Having someone to talk to is important for your mental health. Knowing you are not ready to have a baby is an important feeling to sort through. You may be feeling grief, guilt, anger, shock, and many other emotions. Having group counseling or one-on-one counseling is important for your overall physical and emotional needs. Counseling is free and will be provided before, during, and after the pregnancy. 

If you are not ready to have a baby, we have many private adoption agencies in Florida for you to choose from. We are here to help you find a perfect family for your child. Your decision may be difficult, but it’s the right choice for yourself and your child. Your important adoption decision has given someone a child they can love and care for on your behalf. Get started and contact Adoption Choices of Florida.
