How to Place Baby for Adoption

How to Place a Baby for Adoption in Arizona

Pregnant? Considering adoption? You are not alone! Many women face unplanned or unwanted pregnancies and we have the best adoption agencies in AZ to help with baby adoption. The first thing to understand is that adoption is not giving up. Creating an adoption plan means you are taking control of your situation which is the exact opposite of giving up.

Why do we say “give up baby”?

Give up baby” is negative adoption language which stems from ancient adoption practices in which young women were forced to hand over their newborns. Combined with “put up baby” which was coined during the orphan train movement in the mid 1800’s in which orphans were put up on a platform for families to choose – these continue to be common phrases. Our website uses these terms to help people find adoption services and pregnancy options.

Once someone has found our adoption materials, we take the time to explain the benefits of choosing adoption and the reality of the adoption process. Below is a tour through the basic steps of the modern adoption process in Arizona for a pregnant woman considering to place a baby for adoption.

Before we begin, please know that at any time you may speak directly with an adoption counselor 24/7, confidentially, and with no obligation by calling or texting 480-900-5520 or via our contact form.

Adoption Process for My Baby

Placing a baby for adoption is a selfless decision that should be acknowledged and applauded. By choosing to place your baby for adoption, you are prioritizing their well-being and providing them with opportunities that you may be unable to offer at this time. Recognizing that you alone cannot provide everything your child deserves takes immense strength and love.

Instead of perceiving it as “giving up,” it is vital to understand that you are actively giving your child the chance for a beautiful life. The love and dedication you have for your baby is shown through your decision to find them a forever home where they will be cherished and supported.

When you choose adoption, you are granting the gift of family and love to both your child and the adoptive parents. These families have an unwavering desire to raise a child and will be eternally grateful for the opportunity you have given them. They will devote their lives to providing a nurturing environment, offering unconditional love, and ensuring your child’s happiness and success.

The gratitude and appreciation these adoptive families have for your choice are immeasurable. Every milestone, every smile, and every moment of joy will forever remind them of the selfless act you made. Your decision exhibits strength, courage, and an immense amount of love, proving that you want nothing but the best for your baby.

Choosing to place your baby for adoption is an act of pure love and devotion. It is a testament to your love as a parent that you are taking the difficult path of placing their needs above your own. By doing so, you are giving them the chance to thrive in an environment filled with love, support, and endless opportunities.

Remember, baby adoption is not about giving up; it is about offering a gift of a life filled with love, happiness, and the chance to flourish within a family who will be forever grateful for your incredible choice.
