QUESTIONS ABOUT ADOPTION? WE CAN HELP.

Adoption Questions Answered

The more informed you are about adoption the more confident you will be in moving forward. Remember, it is your decision to place your baby for adoption or not. We are here to support you no matter what you decide.

Can I choose a family to adopt my baby?

Yes, absolutely! You make all of the decisions. Every couple seeking newborn adoption in Colorado through Colorado Christian Services has been through a thorough screening process.

How much contact can I have with my child afterward if I choose adoption?

While in the hospital you can have as much or as little contact as you desire.  When planning for your child’s adoption, you can choose an open adoption which allows you to have ongoing visits with your child, or you can choose a less open adoption that keeps you informed about your child’s life through pictures and letters.  Or you can choose a closed adoption with no direct contact after your child is placed.  It’s up to you.

What is an open adoption?

Open adoption looks different in every situation. Open Adoption is the option of having an ongoing relationship with your child and the family you have chosen.

Do I need an attorney?

No, it is not necessary for you to have an attorney, but you are welcome to get one if you wish.

How much will this cost?

There is no cost to you. We provide you with all of the counseling, parenting services, and adoption services free of charge.

What if I decide to parent?

Colorado Christian Services will come alongside you in a decision to place the child for adoption, as well as a decision to parent.  We can help you with a parenting plan, budget, and get you started with items you may need for your child, such as diapers, wipes, clothing, and car seat.

Does the birth father have rights?

Yes. Both you and the birth father have rights. If he disagrees with the adoption or you no longer have a relationship with him, then Colorado Christian Services will work with you to find a way of notifying him of your plan of adoption.

Do you offer assistance with medical and living expenses?

Yes.  In Colorado, we can help with pregnancy-related expenses.
