Some mothers become pregnant unexpectedly, at a time when they are unprepared and feel unable to cope with a child, and all the responsibilities of being a parent. Issues that a person may come across include financial worries or lack of funds, emotional problems, or physical disabilities.

When faced with pregnancy some people have an abortion; others may not feel that it is right to terminate a pregnancy, and some have left it too late as they did not know they were pregnant. One option is to put your child up for adoption – this is an innovative idea if you feel that you truly cannot care for the child on your own as you do not have enough support. “The following shows the process, step by step, for putting your child up for adoption.” (“Putting Your Child Up for Adoption – 3 Simple Steps”)

Firstly, you should make an appointment to see your General Practitioner before the birth and let them know that you wish to put your child up for adoption. “If you feel more comfortable talking to a stranger rather than your doctor, you can always make arrangements to a professional at your local health center.” (“Adoption Made Easy by Max Diamond – Issuu”)

There are many bogus adoption agencies claiming to be professional, so it is important to go to your local health services who have a list of licensed agencies.

The child’s medical records can get lost in the process of adoption, so it is an innovative idea to have the parents’ medical records. This is immensely helpful if a child becomes ill, especially if they need hospital care, to determine what could be wrong with the child, or if there is anything to look out for in the future. It could prove beneficial if you could also obtain the medical records of the child’s grandparents. (“Putting Your Child Up for Adoption – 3 Simple Steps”)

Thirdly, now that you have decided to place your child up for adoption, you need to decide on whether to have an open or closed adoption. (“Adoption Made Easy by Max Diamond – Issuu”)

“An open adoption allows the parent to continue to have interrelations with their child even though they have been adopted, so that they can keep close ties.” (“Putting Your Child Up for Adoption – 3 Simple Steps”)

“Some parents opt for a closed adoption if they want to cease all contact with their child, in the best interest of the child, so that they consider their adoptive parents as theirs.” (“Putting Your Child Up for Adoption – 3 Simple Steps”)

“It is more common for parents to choose an open adoption so they can continue to interact with their child and never sever that bond they feel for their child.” (“Putting Your Child Up for Adoption – 3 Simple Steps”) If this is what you prefer and it works well for both parents, then an open adoption is the right choice for you.
