What adoption looks like today:

Whatever you and your child’s adoptive family want it to look like. At Bethany, if you choose to place your child for adoption, we walk with you to develop an adoption plan that meets your needs and the needs of your child.

Here are things you get to consider in your adoption plan:
  • You get to choose the family your child will thrive in. This means you can choose everything from the location of the family to the family’s religious practices or whether they have pets. See adoption plan ideas and sample plans below for more!
  • How often and how you would like to remain in contact with your child. This can range from having frequent contact with your child’s adoptive family to a few visits each year.

Adoption Plan Ideas

Want your child to grow up in the country? Or the city? You can choose a family that lives in the location of your choice. Maybe you had a childhood dog and want your child to have the same—we can help you find a family with a furry friend to be a companion for your child.  Or perhaps you dream of your child traveling the country or the world. You can choose an adoptive family that spends free time traveling.

Birthmom Stories

Openness in Adoption

In most adoptions today, you make an agreement with your child’s adoptive family to determine the level of contact you want with your child. This can range from seeing your child each month to seeing him or her on birthdays and holidays. Every birthmom’s plan for openness in adoption is different, so we can talk your options through with you and help you establish a great relationship with your child’s adoptive family.
