Benefits of Choosing A California Adoption Agency

  • Protection of your ongoing future relationship with your child and the adoptive family you chose through a Post Adoption Contact Agreement that is filed with the California court as part of the adoption.
  • Pregnancy related living expenses that lasts up through 6 weeks post placement and includes a one-time expense for post maternity clothing.
  • Adoption Connection families are heavily trained on the benefits of having an open adoption that includes visits each year so expectant parents can build a strong, healthy and positive relationship with the adoptive parents as the child grows older.
  • Adoption Connection protects your rights during and after the adoption. We truly believe that openness and ongoing future contact is in a child’s best interest. It’s not just talk!

When you choose a California adoptive family at Adoption Connection, you’re choosing a family who cares and recognizes that open adoption is the best way possible to raise an adopted child.  Our adoptive families understand that adoptive children who are raised being told of how much love and care was in your decision to place them for adoption, grow up with stronger self-identity and understanding that the adoption was because they were truly loved.

Even though I have all the love in the world for my daughter, and so does her father, we knew we made the right choice.

Adoption Connection is here to help you make the plan that you feel is best for you and your baby. Our counselors are available to talk through your feelings about adoption, answer all your questions, help you find a loving family, and connect you to resources in your area before and after the adoption. We can also create an adoption budget for you for pregnancy-related financial assistance, if you need it

State laws can vary on whether a father must consent to adoption. Generally, if you are married to the father, he will need to consent. If you are not married to the father and no longer in contact with him, we can take care of contacting him so you don’t have to. In most cases, the baby’s father doesn’t have to consent but he does need to receive notice of the adoption, and after he is noticed, he would have to take steps to establish paternity and demonstrate a commitment to parenting within a set time frame in order to challenge the plan of adoption. We understand that the circumstances about the baby’s father might be complicated. It might even scare you to think about how to tell him about your plan of adoption. We are here to help you figure that out and will take the steps necessary at your pace, when you’re ready. Contact us to tell us more about your situation, and we’ll know what to do for you.

Absolutely! Many women find choosing a family for their baby an Important part of making an adoption plan. Once you reach out to us and share a little about you and what you’re looking for in a family, we’ll send you letters written by our adoptive families who are ready to adopt. It’s up to you how much interaction you want with an adoptive family. You decide if you want to speak with them on the phone, just text message or even meet them in person. By creating a connection with the adoptive parents, you can make a plan that you feel good about

And if you don’t want to choose the family…

You certainly do not have to choose a family if that’s your preference. In making an adoption plan, you are the one to decide what you want. If you decide that you want to have a “closed” adoption, we will honor your decision and not pressure you to have an “open” adoption. From our experience, many women find that the steps in choosing the adoptive parents and getting to know them, can help them to feel better about their plan and more confident about the future for their baby. But we understand that open adoption is not for everyone and every situation is unique. We’re here to listen to you and support you during this process

What if I’m due really soon or I’ve already given birth? Is it too late for adoption?
You can still make an adoption plan! We have loving adoptive families who are ready to move fast. We can help you find an adoptive family quickly and put everything in place quickly for your adoption plan.

Adoption Connection will never pressure you to choose adoption. You don’t have to worry about not knowing what you want to do when you call us. Our counselors are committed to helping you figure out what’s right for you and giving you the support and information you need so you can feel good that you’re making the best decision you possibly can for your baby. Choosing adoption is never a decision that any woman chooses lightly, and we understand how important it is for you to have someone to confidentially speak with an experienced and compassionate counselor as you consider all your options. We believe it’s your decision, at your pace.
