Frequently Asked Questions From Birth Mothers
Yes you can. A Act of Love offers the utmost confidentially and allows you to obtain information without any obligations. Using a staff like Act of Love that has personal experience with adoptions both professionally and personally will help provide you with the necessary emotional, mental and physical support to make the right decision about your pregnancy.
An open adoption allows you, as a birthparent, to have a relationship or direct contact with the adoptive parents and your child. This type of adoption varies greatly, as it can be minimal communication, or include open contact between families.
A closed adoption was the type of adoption common decades ago. A closed adoption does not share or disclose any identifying information about you to the adoptive parents and you will not have any identifying information about the adoptive family.
A semi-open adoption is a combination of an open and closed adoption. You will typically not have direct contact with the adoptive family or your child, but you can use the adoption agency as an intermediary to pass periodic information, medical history, pictures, etc., along. This type of adoption does not require identifying information to be exchanged, it just allows the option if you or the adoptive family prefers.
If you do not have medical insurance or Medicaid, the adoptive family adopting your baby should cover your pregnancy related medical expenses. The prospective adoptive parents should be responsible to cover the expenses related to your pregnancy and delivery.
At A Act of Love we have many adoptive family profiles we can show you. For some birthparents, selecting an adoptive family is as simple as following their feelings. Whatever birthparents envision for their children is probably the type of adoptive parents they should pursue. If a birthparent prefers urban dwelling, a family living in the big city may make the ideal adoptive parents. If, however, birthparents prefer rural settings with pets, it may be best to consider searching for adoptive parents that fit these profiles.
