Is Adoption Still an Option in Arizona?

Is Adoption Still An Option?


If you have a newborn and thinking about adoption, we can help.

It is not uncommon for women to choose adoption from the hospital or after they have returned home with their newborn baby. Are you wondering is adoption still an option, the answer is yes. This type of adoption is usually referred to as a last-minute adoption, after-delivery adoption, or hospital adoption. It can also be known as a drop-in adoption.

If you are feeling that parenting your newborn is not the right option for you or you feel in your heart that another family is right for your child you still have adoption options. If the Department of Child Protective Services is involved in your life, private adoption is also still an option for you. There is only a small window of time that you have to make an adoption plan and the baby can be released from the hospital directly to the adoptive family.

We will come to your hospital room or wherever you want to meet and walk you through the Arizona adoption process of making a life long plan for your baby.

Last Minute Adoption

If you are in labor, on your way to the hospital, already at the hospital, or if your baby has already born, adoption is an option with our adoption agency. Contact us when you are in labor, at the hospital, given birth, or even once you have returned home with the baby. At Adoption Choices of Arizona, we have the experience to help you!

After Delivery Adoption

Adoption is an option for you at any point after your baby is born — whether you’re still at the hospital or you’ve already taken your baby home — you can contact us anytime, day or night. Our compassionate, experienced and dedicated adoption specialist are available 24/7 to help you.

Hospital Adoption

Even though it is a last-minute adoption, you will still have full control of your adoption plan. Our Arizona adoption agencies are well equipped to handle last-minute adoptions from the hospital and will work quickly to coordinate everything necessary for your adoption plan. All of our waiting families are prepared for a last-minute adoption and are willing to travel anywhere in the country at a moment’s notice.

Giving your baby up for adoption from the hospital may seem overwhelming, but with the help of our adoption professionals, we can make the process as smooth as possible.

It’s Never too Late to Choose Adoption

Choosing to place your baby up for adoption at birth is an incredibly brave and selfless decision. Whatever your reasons may be, if you’re not ready to be a parent, adoption is a responsible, healthy, and loving choice. When you choose adoption, you’re choosing a life filled with love and opportunity for the child and providing a waiting adoptive family with the most amazing and long-awaited gift.

Whether you are on your way to the hospital, still in the hospital, or have left the hospital with the baby, if you do not want to parent the child, you owe it to yourself and this newborn to explore adoption. Talking to, or meeting with our adoption agency does not obligate you to proceed with an adoption. We will treat you with kindness and respect, never judge you, nor pressure you to proceed with adoption.

We can help you develop an adoption plan where you can pick a family, have an open or closed adoption, and have the assurance that your baby’s needs are being met and will have a solid future.

Giving your baby up for adoption is not giving up. Placing children up for adoption can be a loving and joyful journey.

If you’re looking for a compassionate adoption agency in Arizona that understands how unique your journey is, advocates for you, and offers pregnancy help in this confusing time, contact us now 24/7.

You can remain anonymous; no questions asked. Or you can participate and help develop the adoption plan for your baby. We have professionals ready to help with newborn adoption or infant adoption.

Learn About Adoption

No one knew I was pregnant. My plan was to have the baby and use Safe Haven at the hospital. When the hospital social worker told me CPS was Safe Haven or I could pick my own family through an adoption agency – I did not want my baby in a foster home so I called Adoption Choices. They were in my room in less than an hour, helped me with the paperwork and my discharge. I did this in the best interest of my baby. Sometimes I’m sad… but I know my baby is happy and in a wonderful home.
