Choosing Adoption

You may be thinking about options including parenting and adoption. Neither of these options is easy and only you can decide what is right for you. One of the first steps you will want to take when considering adoption is to learn about the laws and the adoption process in Ohio.  Adoption laws vary from state to state and can be drastically different as you cross state lines. 

Deciding to make an adoption plan for your baby is not easy and is a courageous, unselfish and loving decision. Women who choose to make an adoption plan believe that is the best decision for themselves and their baby. Once you have made the decision to consider making an adoption plan for your baby, it is likely that you will continue to have periods of mixed emotions and uncertainty. You may worry about what people will think of you. You may worry about what your child will think of you if you choose adoption. Every birth mother who considers adoption has these same concerns. We understand and we’re here to help.

You will continue to have many questions that will need to be answered throughout the adoption process.
