When Can You Choose Adoption?

When faced with an unplanned pregnancy, some women know right away that adoption is the best choice for their child. They may be eager to start the process, reaching out to an adoption professional as soon as they learn of their pregnancy.

However, for many other women, adoption is not a decision that can be made quickly. In fact, some prospective birth mothers don’t choose adoption until late in their pregnancies or even after their child has been born.

We know that it takes a lot of thought to make an adoption decision. That’s why there is no wrong time to choose adoption for your baby. Whether you want to start the adoption process early in your pregnancy, at the hospital or even after you’ve taken your child home, it can still be an option for you.

Learn more about when you can choose adoption for your baby, and how that timing will affect your adoption process, in the articles below.
