Financial Support

Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.

Friday Night Fun 🎱

01/22/2022

Last night, we found a private club where we could play pool for a few hours! Turns out, Az is really good at pool ! Steph isn’t bad either though. It was a fun time and we appreciated having the space to ourselves as COVID rates remain high in the city (and temperatures remain low!).

Getting ready

01/23/2022

In order to become the best (adoptive) parents we can be to any child who may join our family in the future, we’ve been taking a trauma-informed parenting class together every weekend. We’re grateful to the professionals who have been sharing their expertise and the parents in the group for sharing their experiences. We look forward to putting these principles into action as a parenting duo in the future. Here we are, being silly during one of the class breaks.

More snow ❄️

01/20/2022

It's snowing again! We went for a walk and Porsche was not a fan of the cold wet ground. So Steph had to carry her - and almost missed the family photo! Luckily Az was ready with a smile 😀 📸

Porsche & Llama 🥰

01/19/2022

Our dog Porsche's favorite toy right now is her llama, which looks a lot like her. Enough that we mix them up at least once a week haha. Here they are snuggling. Porsche is such a sweetheart and we can't wait until a child gets to share in her love (and snuggles!).

Staying active 🏃🏽‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️

01/16/2022

Az used to run track in high school ! Steph swam in high school and college so she's newer to running. Now, we run in our local park a few days a week. Together, we've been working on increasing our distances and decreasing our times.   Here is Az in December, crossing the final line of a 10k race. We love staying active together - and bonus, it keeps us ready to run after a little one!

Winter traditions ❄️☃️

01/13/2022

We live across the street from a large park. So one of our favorite things to do in winter is: snowshoe! Whenever it snows, we make a thermos of hot cocoa and try to get out there first thing. The park looks so beautiful covered in snow and we're able to see some wildlife sneaking around too. Here is Steph, from our snowshoe adventures last week. You might be able to glimpse our dog Porsche in her backpack carrier too! We had so much fun and can't wait to share this tradition with a child.

Tourists in our own city

01/13/2022

The New Year has gotten off to quite a start! We often try to travel around the holidays, though that's become more difficult with the pandemic. So, instead, we planned a staycation in New York City. We loved being tourists in our own city, exploring new coffee shops and bookstores. We're looking forward to continuing to discover new places as our family grows!  We made a video of our fun weekend and posted it on our instagram. Come say hi! https://www.instagram.com/reel/CYe9OlfBEbN/?utm_medium=copy_link
