Benefits of Working with a Local Adoption Agency: Birth Parents
Adoption is all about making connections. While a birth family and an adoptive family may never meet, the connection they have ensures that the baby will be happy and healthy for years to come.
A local adoption agency is the key to facilitating those strong connections. The relationship starts the minute you connect with the agency and lasts well beyond the child’s birth. While there are many great adoption agencies around the world, here are few reasons why working with one closer to home might be the best choice for you.
A Personal Touch
Adoption can be overwhelming. Emotions run high as you decide what’s best for your baby. Having someone there to guide you through the process can make it feel less overwhelming.
Adoption Makes Family covers every aspect of the adoption process and provides you with a single point of contact each time you contact us. Your local counselor will be by your side every step of the way from the first phone call to the baby’s birth and transition to the adoptive family.
You can reach out to us any time you have questions or need support. Our staff is available 24/7 to help guide you through the adoption process. We care about all of our families and want to make sure each child’s birth receives the attention that such a monumental occasion deserves.
Peace of Mind
Families who work with local adoption agencies often live in the region where the agency is located. Birth parents can take comfort in knowing that a baby will be raised close to home. There’s also a peace of mind that comes from seeing a physical adoption location.
Adoption Makes Family spends time getting to know you and your family. We will make sure that your baby is placed with an adoptive family with similar values if you choose. You can take comfort in knowing exactly what type of family your baby will be entering.
Part of the evaluation happens through home studies on potential adoptive families. A licensed and trained social worker will interview adoptive families to determine whether they are a good fit for a baby. This process allows the social worker to educate the family on adoption and answer questions before moving forward.
If you decide to connect with your child after the adoption, the local agency can help make it happen. This is one of the continuing services that Adoption Makes Family provides to our families after the adoption is complete.
A Supportive Community
Birth parents have the opportunity to meet other birth parents who are working through the adoption process. Adoption Makes Family facilitates connections by hosting gatherings that allow families to meet and get to know each other. The ties that bind mothers together are strong, and you may find that you continue to leverage this support system after the adoption is complete.
The decision to pursue adoption is personal and only you’ll know what’s best for your needs. Even if you aren’t sure about whether an adoption will happen, starting with a local adoption agency like Adoption Makes a Family can help point you in the right direction.
