Your caseworker will present you with various profiles of adoptive parents. Take time beforehand to decide what values and lifestyles are important to you and share these with your caseworker. With some expectant mothers, there is an instant connection with who they choose as adoptive parents. For others, it is making sure they fit certain criteria. You are building a relationship with and entrusting your child to these parents, so ask lots of questions and take time to get to know them.
Ultimately, when choosing adoption and making an adoption plan, you are in complete control. Until your decision is final, you have the right to change that decision. That might mean choosing to parent or choosing a different family. You are in the driver’s seat and our hope is that you find support in your brave choice to explore all options.
