Post Adoption Services for Birth Moms
The effects of adoption on birth mothers can vary depending on the person. No matter how you are feeling post-adoption, you have access to our range of services.
Emotional Support & Counseling
We offer ongoing emotional support and in-house counseling related to your adoption plan—for the rest of your life. Your Adoption Specialist knows you need a great deal of emotional support during this time in your life—and she’s there for you. She will counsel you regarding separation issues, loss and grief issues, and other topics as appropriate. She’ll meet with you face to face for support, depending on your wishes.
Financial support is another post-adoption service that you can access through Texas Adoption Center. We are able to financially assist you while you’re still receiving medical care related to your delivery—typically 4-6 weeks after birth, while you rest and recover.
MEDICAL CARE, HEALTH INSURANCE, AND MEDICAL BILLS
Medical care is another one of the post adoption services in Texas available for birth mothers at Texas Adoption Center. You deserve excellent medical care. All your pregnancy, labor, and delivery and postpartum medical costs will be paid. This way, you can focus on recuperating after delivery. From visits to your OBGYN to checkups and more, your adoption specialist is here for you.

An Ongoing Communication Agreement is designed to outline the mutual agreements of the birth parents and the adoptive family about their communication after placement. It is expected that birth families and adoptive families will follow the Agreement. The contents of the Agreement will be discussed with the birth parents and the adoptive family prior to placement, including frequency of photos, updates, visits, etc. It will be initiated by both the birth parent(s) and the adoptive parent(s). The child’s best interest will be of the utmost importance when considering the agreement.
Depending on the birthparent(s) wishes, the adoptive parents can maintain a private online photo album account, where they will post photos of the child in an ongoing fashion, so that the birthparent(s) can view photos, videos, and updates, as they wish. Of course, direct texting, calling, or emailing is always an option in open adoptions, as well.
