Is It Too Late to Choose Adoption?

Unplanned pregnancies are full of intense emotions and difficult decisions. For many women it is difficult to come to terms with their pregnancy and even more difficult to make a decision about what to do next.

Often times these women don’t consider adoption as an option until after delivery. At this point they’re likely wondering “Is it too late to give my baby up for adoption?” The short answer to this question is: no, it’s never too late to consider adoption and it is possible to give a baby up for adoption after birth.

Parenting can be overwhelming, and it may take some time as a parent to realize that you won’t be able to provide everything your child needs. So, whether you’re eight weeks or eight months pregnant, whether your child is a newborn, toddler or older, if you feel that it is the best decision for your child, adoption is an option at any age.

The truth is the right time to start considering adoption is whenever you’re ready.

If you feel you’re ready, you can contact Bryan McLachlan at (727) 398-0086 to choose adoption any time.

Early in Your Pregnancy

If you are early on in your pregnancy, you may be wondering “When can I put my child up for adoption?” or “When should I start considering adoption?” You can contact an adoption professional as soon as you learn of your pregnancy, even if you’re not 100 percent committed to adoption.

Contacting Bryan, or any other adoption professional, early in your pregnancy gives you more time to learn about the adoption process, receive support or counseling, and find an adoptive family for your child. However, reaching out to an adoption professional in no way obligates you to choose adoption. You have the right to change your mind at any point in the adoption process.

Late in Your Pregnancy

Adoption is an incredibly difficult decision for an expectant mother to make. Often times a woman may not even consider adoption as an option until the final weeks or days of her pregnancy. If you are currently in this situation, you may be asking yourself, “Is it too late to give my baby up for adoption?”

No, it’s not too late. Bryan has the resources to help you complete the adoption process in a matter of days if necessary. Our unique relationship with American Adoptions, allows us to provide women in your position with access to 24/7 adoption support and counseling, a personal adoption specialist who will guide you through the adoption process, and hundreds of adoptive families from which to choose.

Additionally, if you are struggling to pay for your pregnancy related expenses, American Adoptions may be able to provide you with assistance.

After Delivery

If you recently gave birth and are considering adoption you’re likely wondering, “Can you put your baby up for adoption after you’ve had him or her?” or “How does after-delivery adoption work?”

No matter how old your child is – days, weeks, months or years old – adoption is still an option for you. Not only is it an option, but you will have all the same rights as any other woman who is completing the adoption process.

You will be in control of everything from choosing the perfect parents for your child to deciding how much contact you want with the adoptive parents and your child after the adoption is completed. And, most importantly, you will determine how quickly you want to move through each step of the process. You will never be pressured to move at a pace that you are uncomfortable with.

There is no deadline for doing what you think is best for you and your child. If you are struggling to parent your child and would like to learn more information about adoption, please contact Bryan today with no obligation. Bryan McLachlan is dedicated to helping you make the best decision for yourself and your child.
