Reach Out to An Adoption Agency
You can reach out to an adoption agency whether or not you’ve officially decided to place your baby for adoption. Adoption agencies are a great resource and can answer all of your questions.
Our Adoption Specialists love connecting with birth mothers! When you call Texas Adoption Center, an adoption specialist can give you more information about all of your options. She’ll support you in whatever you decide! We only want the best for you and trust you to make the best decisions for you and your baby.
What Comes Next? Creating An Adoption Plan
When you decide to place your baby for adoption with Texas Adoption Center, your adoption specialist will help you create a customized adoption plan. You’ll be able to choose an open adoption, semi-open adoption, or closed adoption for your baby.
Open adoptions allow you to choose your child’s family and decide what kind of relationship you want to have with them. You can even start getting to know them and building a relationship with them before delivery if you’d like. With an open adoption, you have the option to keep up with the family. If you want to, you can visit them later down the road too!
Semi-open adoptions allow you to pick your child’s adoptive family. You have the option to meet them and get to know them below delivery and spend time with them and your baby at the hospital. If you’d like, you can receive pictures and letter updates from the family throughout your child’s life. However, there will be no personal visits or contact.
Closed adoptions are less common these days. You can decide how closed you want the adoption to be! Typically, though, we would choose a family for you baby and you wouldn’t meet or get to know them before your baby is born. After delivery, you generally won’t have any visits or receive any picture or letter updates.
We’re here to help you craft the perfect plan for YOU because every adoption plan is unique!
