The first step to do is to begin gathering information. You will pick details and information up throughout your entire pregnancy and you will continue to make the decision over and over if you are still going to put your baby up for adoption or if you are going to keep and raise your baby. Never be afraid of finding out information about putting your baby up for adoption. There is never any obligation, promise or decision made by just for asking about all your options and the details surrounding them. After getting your initial information, you will want to begin seeking out an adoption professional that you can trust through your pregnancy. There are licensed adoption agencies and attorneys who specialize in adoption. It is critical that you speak with three different agencies/ attorneys so you can made an educated choice about who you are going to let guide and assist you through the remainder of your pregnancy. It is a great idea to speak with them in person if possible, but it is not vital. You can also see if they offer any internet face to face chat sessions with Skype or Oovoo.
Do some research on your own on the internet and make a list of questions to ask. Add your own questions and concerns that you have. Go over this list with all three choices you are considering to help you through the process of putting your baby up for adoption. It is very important that no one pressures you into doing anything you don’t want to do. No one should try to get you to come to their office or rush into anything with any signing of papers. If you feel uncomfortable at all, get out, and move onto the next adoption professional that can help you with your choice.
After you have received all the information, checked out the agencies, and settled on someone to help you put your baby up for adoption, you will then complete some paperwork. Prospective adoptive families and parents will want to know as much information as they can about their baby they want to adopt. The father’s health history needs to be included, and you need to state matter of fact why you are putting your baby up for adoption, so there is no confusion or problems down the road for you or the adoptive parents.
