Have questions about adoption options?(Birthmothers only please)

Are you pregnant?
Yes
No
Unplanned Pregnancy?

“I never thought I would have to make a decision like this.” We hear this statement from almost all Birthparents. It is a tough time with many questions such as:

  • How do I get started?
  • How will I pay my bills?
  • What will people think of me?
  • Can anyone interfere with my decision?
  • When is my decision final?
  • Do I go to court?
  • Do I pay for anything?
  • Will I get to pick the family?
  • Will I know how the baby is doing through the years?

This website is designed to answer these questions and many more. Also, with the help of a caring, on-call maternity counselor with decades of experience, you will be guided with care through the process to make it as uncomplicated as possible. Charlotte Duncan is available for your call at 713-529-4341 or 1-800-392-5969. This is a Texas non-profit adoption agency for Texas families.

 

How Do I place My Baby For Adoption?

Call or email to receive the initial contact forms; it is never too early or too late to begin the process. Birth parents have contacted us as early as first learning that they are pregnant and as late as, after the baby is born; and Adoptexas has been able to help them find a wonderful adoptive family for their baby.

Talk with Charlotte, the Maternity Intake Counselor to begin the process of working out the type of adoption plan and finding the family they want for their child.

Phone and In-person counseling begins immediately for the preparation for the emotions and decisions that will be part of the birth parent’s placement experience. This counseling that starts at the very first contact continues as long as the birth parents require or request it.

Select the adoptive parents you want for your child. Unlike many organizations and websites; Adoptexas does not put family profiles on the web. Each birth parent situation is so unique that we feel these decisions need to be made on a very personal and individualized basis after the Maternity Counselor has had the opportunity to get to know the birth parents personally and find out what their specific requests and requirements are.

Our adoptive families will have been screened through three different criminal history data banks (Texas Department of Public Safety, Child Abuse History Registry, FBI fingerprinting) and will have had complete and thorough Home Studies following the rules set out by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. The child and adoptive family are monitored for a minimum of six months following the placement of the child in the home with monthly pediatrician’s visits and face-to-face visits with an agency representative.

Pertaining to the adoption process:

Birth parents DO NOT have to:

  • go to court
  • get an attorney
  • pay for anything
  • sign a legal document until 48 hours after the birth of the baby

Birth parents DO:

  • Receive all legal documents for their review prior signing
  • Receive unlimited counseling
  • Receive help with their approved living expenses”
  • Have the right and opportunity to pick and meet the adoptive parents for their baby
  • Have the right to decide what contact they want with the adoptive family and child
  • Have the right to decide the amount/type of contact they want with the adoptive family and child after placement.

DOES THE BIRTH FATHER HAVE RIGHTS

Yes, the birth father does have rights. How these rights will affect a birth mother’s decision to place their child for adoption will be discussed on an individual basis.”

Birth Parent letters

Dear Son,

When I gave birth to you and they asked me if I wanted to hold you, at first I was scared, because I knew I had to give you to Preston and Janet. I was scared of getting attached so I said no. Later, your dad suggested we get you from the nursery. So we brought you back to the room and slept close to you all night. All we did was kiss you and cry and look at you and cry. It was so bittersweet. We were so young and I knew I couldn't give you the life I wanted you to have at the time. When I went to the adoption center, I saw Preston and Janet's picture right away and said, "That's them! That's who I want to raise my son." They just seemed to be my style in a way and I just got a good feeling when I saw the picture.

your birth mother
