Adoption As An Option

Some women choose adoption and automatically know this is the right option for them. Others take time to feel it out to understand if it’s right for them. There is no rush to decide on your pregnancy. Here at Stillwater Life Services, we want to ensure you have information on all your options so you can make a choice you’re comfortable and confident in.

Adoption can be a bitter-sweet journey. While it can be a happy experience to provide a hopeful and eager couple the opportunity to complete their family, it can also be sad to forego raising your child.

One thing women should know about adoption, though, is you are in complete control, and you get to decide what’s best for you and your child.

What Kind Of Adoption Plans Are There?

The good news about adoption is this: there are lots of plans to choose from that can fit your life!

There are three main adoption plan types:

  • Open-Adoption: You are welcome to participate in open communication and still be a significant part of your child’s life. You can participate in small and large milestones, watch your child grow and learn, and allow them to know you well.
  • Semi-Open Adoption: You still have the opportunity to know your child, watch them grow, and have a relationship with them. However, this option gives women the space they need to communicate when they’re ready. All communication will go through an adoption professional who will help you regulate conversation and information.
  • Closed Adoption: This is the option for some women who want to stay anonymous. All identifying records and personal information will be legally sealed to help protect your identity when you wish to remain unknown.
