Adoption Minnesota finds it important to create birthmom focused adoption plans.
What is a birthmom focused adoption? It is a plan where the birthmom decides how the adoption will go. Birthmoms have a lot of choices when it comes to adoption and it is important to focus on how they want the process to go. Our agency works with birthmoms to focus on how they want the adoption to happen. Birthmoms can choose the adoptive family, decide how they want the hospital time to go and plan what they want for openness or contact after the placement.
Birthmom focused adoptions are very important. When an adoption focuses on the birthmom’s needs and wants, it allows her to feel better about the adoption. It helps the birthmom grieve and heal knowing that she created a plan to fit what works best for her baby and herself.
We also feel that is best after the placement to continue to focus on the birthmom. Adoption Minnesota continues to support and work with our birthmoms for as long as they need us after they place their newborn for adoption. We meet up with them to counsel them in person at a location of their choice, help them find support groups and talk to other birthmoms if they are interested in doing so.
