Benefits of Choosing Adoption for Your Baby

Adoption is one of the most loving and selfless gifts you can give both your baby and their adoptive family. Your decision to place your baby for adoption will be a long-awaited miracle for a family hoping to adopt.

There are many reasons expectant mothers choose adoption in Michigan. Overall, birth mothers choose adoption because they care about their baby. They also care about what their future will bring. And, sometimes they already have children that they are caring and providing for. There are endless factors to consider when you are responsible for another life. The needs of a mother become secondary to feeding, clothing, educating and loving a child. Michigan adoption can provide your baby:

  • Love

  • Financial security

  • Medical, dental, and eye care

  • Safe, stable home life

  • Quality education

  • Opportunities for a happy, fulfilling life

  • Emotionally ready parents

  • Loving grandparents and relatives

How to Choose an Adoptive Family

One of the most fulfilling parts of the adoption process is choosing a family to adopt your baby. We only work with families who are licensed to adopt a baby in the United States. Our adopting families have been pre-screened and are ready to provide a safe, stable, and loving home for your baby. No matter what you are looking for, we believe there is a family out there that is a perfect fit for you and your baby.

What should I ask the adoptive family?

You probably have a lot of questions you’re wanting to ask. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Why did you choose adoption to build your family?

  • What is your daily life like?

  • What are your beliefs on how a child should be raised and disciplined?

  • Please share your moral and spiritual beliefs.

  • Will the child have extended family nearby?

  • Do you work outside the home and will the child be in daycare?

  • How much time will you take off work after the baby is born?

  • What kind of experiences do you hope to share with a child?

Common Questions About Adoption

The first step is contacting an adoption organization or agency in Michigan. You will view profiles of families hoping to adopt and choose one for your baby. Then with help from your caseworker, you’ll put together an adoption plan. Your adoption plan is based on your wants and needs. For example, whether the adoption will be open or closed, who will be with you during delivery, and what you’ll do after the adoption. As a birth mother, counseling and casework services are provided at no cost to you. You may also be eligible to receive adoption financial assistance for housing and pregnancy-related expenses.

Every adopting parent working with Adoption Associates has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. The home study process includes assessments of the parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child. Furthermore, Adoption Associates requires each family to be educated on adoption and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family.

Open adoption is the most common type of adoption in the United States. In an open or semi-open adoption, you can choose the adoptive family and decide on the amount and type of contact you prefer during and after the adoption. In a closed adoption, you and the adoptive parents remain anonymous for the entire process.

It’s never too late to make an adoption plan. If you’ve decided to put your baby up for adoption, you can contact Adoption Associates anytime — we are here for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An approved adoptive family will be available for your baby within hours. In most cases, the adoptive parents will take the baby home with them from the hospital, avoiding any need for temporary care.

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption, we can help. From the first time you contact us, to the birth of your baby and beyond, we’ll be there. Adoption Associates provides birth mothers with friendly, non-judgemental guidance and compassionate support through the entire adoption process.
