Okay I'm kinda clueless as to all of this..... Not looking to adopt but wanted to ask a few questions as we have considered putting our baby up for adoption.....

1. Do the birth parents ever get anything as far as reimbursements? For medical or anything...?
2. Do you HAVE to go through an adoption agency?
3. Can you pick who the baby goes to if its through an adoption agency?
4. Is it ever possible to see the baby right after its born or do the adoptive parents taken it right as its out?

I figured this would be the best place to ask.....

Come on over to the Birth Mom's Board, there are a few ladies there who can help you out. I'll go ahead and answer from my experience


1. Do the birth parents ever get anything as far as reimbursements? For medical or anything...?
I'm not sure how every state works, but in my case, my Adoption Agency handlded any medical bills that my insurance didn't cover, and they covered all the baby's bills. They also offered financial support for food and maternity clothing etc if needed.

2. Do you HAVE to go through an adoption agency?
No you don't, but if you chose not to use an agency, I would highly suggest you seek counseling from someone trained to work with Birth Mothers.

3. Can you pick who the baby goes to if its through an adoption agency?
Yes you can! I picked my daugthers parents

4. Is it ever possible to see the baby right after its born or do the adoptive parents taken it right as its out?
Yup! I spent 2 days in the hospital with my daugther, when we were both discharged I then handed her over. Thats all part of your adoption plan, you get to choose!

Katie did a great job answering your questions! Going through an agency you will be able to make a plan you are comfortable with and most likely will end up with an open adoption of some kind. Good luck with everything!
