Steve & Julie
We placed our parent profile on ParentProfiles.com on July 1st and by July 25th we had three email contacts from three different birthmothers! We had spent almost a whole year working through an adoption agency with no indication of a potential adoption situation and then WHAM - as soon as we placed our profile on ParentProfiles.com we received almost immediate feedback from birthmothers. I cannot express into words how thrilled we were with these contacts more ...
Creating an adoption birth plan is a great way to stay organized, motivated, and sane during the next few weeks and months. Choosing to place your child with an adoptive family was a difficult and painful decision to make, even after weeks of research and the consideration of all your options. Even if you feel lost or alone, you're not. And one great way to remember that is to create an adoption birth plan.
Hello, We're excited to start our journey as parents and hope to bring comfort to the expectant mom who will trust us with the most precious gift of life. We promise to love, care, protect and give a balance life to your child. Get to know us.
An adoption birth plan is your individualized plan or a listing of your needs for the upcoming months of pregnancy and placement. One of the many great things about creating an adoption birth plan is that it's unique to you. You can add whatever you want on the list. You don't have to worry about pleasing someone else with your list; it is solely for you. When creating your list, there are many different topics that you can cover. Here are just a few questions to ask yourself:
No matter which items you choose to add to your adoption birth plan, it should be respected by your family and friends, the adoptive family, and by birthing or hospital professionals. This is your birthing experience. You have the right to determine the specifics of the birth and the experience in general. However, keep in mind that if the doctor determines that your life or your child's life is at risk, you may need to consider altering your plan. Throughout this process, don't let anyone coerce or pressure you into making a decision you're not ready to make. This needs to be about your needs and your desires. And creating an adoption plan can lead you down your chosen path with confidence.
