Take A Closer Look At Adoption

You have three options for your unexpected pregnancy, including adoption. While adoption is difficult, many choose to make an adoption plan to provide their child with a stable and secure home life that may not have been possible otherwise.

At Birthright, we provide helpful information about the adoption process and North Carolina’s adoption requirements. In addition, we offer referrals to reputable adoption agencies you can trust.

What Is Adoption?

Adoption is the legal process of transferring the rights and responsibilities of being a parent from a birth couple to an adoptive couple.

No one should ever charge you for their adoption services as a birth parent.

A woman chooses to place her child for adoption for many reasons. Some women have no desire to parent. They feel they are the wrong age or already have other children in their home.

Whatever your reason, you are thinking about your child first. You want what is best for them.

Open Adoption

The most popular adoption plan is open adoption. When you have an open adoption, you choose the adoptive family to raise your child. If you work with an adoption agency, they will show you profiles of families waiting to adopt.

It is difficult to qualify for adoption, so you can be sure every couple is personally and financially stable. Once you have selected a family, you exchange identifying information. You can share names, addresses, and phone numbers.

Through open adoption, you can continue communicating with the adoptive family while building a relationship with your child.
