27 Mar My Friend Wants to Know about the Adoption Process in Colorado. Who Can Help Her?
My best friend is pregnant and wants to give her baby up for adoption. She wants to know how to start the adoption process in Colorado.
We understand that your friend is likely feeling overwhelmed and emotional as she considers how to begin the adoption process. She is not alone, and we are here to help. Colorado Christian Services (CCS) is a licensed adoption agency in Colorado that can provide the guidance and support she needs to make the best decision without feeling pressured or judged.
Our team has been helping birth mothers find loving homes for their babies for over 60 years. Your friend can contact us 24/7 to get more information.
How does the Adoption Process Work in Colorado?
To start, she needs to decide if adoption is the right choice for her. A pregnant mother should research and gather information about all of her choices before she chooses adoption for her child. The more information she knows, the more confident she will feel about making the best choice for her and her child. In order to create an adoption plan in Colorado, she needs to work with a licensed adoption agency and Colorado Christian Services would be honored to help.
Talk to a Caseworker
Our adoption team will talk with her and help her find the best option for her and her child. We’ll help her feel as supported and comfortable as we can. At any time along the way, she can talk with our adoption counselor at no cost to her. We are happy to answer any questions she may have about the process.
Select the Right Adoption Plan
When it comes to the level of contact a birth mother wants to have with the adoptive family and the child moving forward, there are three types of adoption plans to create a custom plan.
- Open adoption
- Semi-open adoption
- Closed adoption.
Her caseworker will empower her to create a personalized adoption plan that best suits her child’s needs and values her wishes regarding future contact.
Choose the Best Adoptive Family
Choosing the right adoptive parents for her child is very important and empowering. We have thoroughly screened, and home-study-approved adoptive parents for birth mothers to review. She can consider each profile and select the adoptive family she feels would be the best match for her child.
Plan Your Delivery
Her caseworker will work with her to help make a detailed birth plan about what she wants for her delivery and hospital stay. We ensure that the birth mother’s voice is heard, and her needs are met during childbirth.
Post Placement Support
A birth mother will still need support after she has placed her baby for adoption. Our caseworker will continue to counsel and support her for as long as she needs. We will also offer her a monthly support group she can join with other women who have walked a similar path.
