Why Should You Create a Florida Adoption Plan?

Finding yourself with an unexpected pregnancy is something that typically no one thinks will happen to them until it does. At Adoption Choices of Florida, we recognize that the entire adoption process can be a bit overwhelming. An Adoption plan provides you with structure and allows you to honor yourself each step of the pregnancy. This is incredibly important throughout the adoption process.

What is an Adoption Plan?

You may be asking, what exactly is an adoption plan? An adoption plan is essentially a list of preferences you have for your child’s adoption. This can include specific preferences you may have for your child’s adoption. Some examples include the following

  • Adoption Type: open, closed, semi-open?
  • Adoptive Family Type: transracial, older/younger parents, single parent?
  • Support group: who is supporting you through the adoption process?
  • Birth Plan: do you plan on having others attend your birth

The goal of the adoption plan is to make sure that the Florida adoption process follows your specific guidelines. Adoption Choices of Florida are determined to work with you and help you determine what specific preferences you may have. Placing your newborn up for adoption with adoptive parents is a big decision, and you will be in charge of who will be their adoptive family. Preferences can’t be too small. What kind of values do you want your adoptive family to have? Would you prefer them to be older or younger? Single or married? Our adoption specialists at Adoption Choices of Florida will help you narrow down your exact preferences. 

Some birth mothers have many preferences, and others have none. No matter how many or how little preferences you may have, both of these decisions are valid. At Adoption Choices of Florida, we want to stress the fact that the adoption process is different for each birth mother and adoptive family. 

What are the benefits of creating an adoption plan in Florida?

  • Limits Stress of the adoption process: One of the most important benefits of creating an adoption plan is to limit as much stress as possible from the adoption process. At Adoption Choices of Florida, we have resources that can help you set up your adoption plan. Adoption specialists are available in order to guide you through all of the important details within an adoption plan. 
  • Flexibility– we work with you: Adoption plans can always be changed and are as flexible as you need them to be. However it’s important to note, that adoption plans created sooner rather than later will likely lead to a smoother adoption journey. An adoption plan will allow you to be as flexible about the adoption as you’d like. Not only does an adoption plan provide flexibility, but it also provides you with stability that will make the adoption process smoother.
