Understanding & Preparing for Adoption

The Understanding Adoption program will guide you through these and other important steps:

  • Explore and understand your choices and recognize myths that may affect your view of adoption.
  • Sort through reasons for placing your baby for adoption.
  • Recognize how hormones and stresses can affect your perspective.
  • Discover a realistic understanding of what adoption looks like and what you need to feel confident in your decision.
  • Realize fully that adoption is a selfless choice while also acknowledging loss.
  • Review what you’ve learned about yourself and your circumstances as you consider adoption.
  • Consider various adoption plans and identify which makes you comfortable.
  • Prepare for screening and meeting with potential adoptive families.
  • Organize a plan for the hospital, including the person(s) you want to have with you.
  • Acknowledge the importance of expressing love for your baby and understand the emotions you and the adoptive family experience.
  • Recognize healing comes with acknowledging the reality of adoption and moving forward does not mean forgetting your child or your love for him/her.

You will never be alone.
