Questions About the Adoption Process
Whether you are thinking about adopting a child in North Dakota or have already decided adoption is right for you, you probably have many questions and concerns. Our caring, highly skilled professionals are available to talk to you about North Dakota adoptions.
Some of the most commonly asked questions include:
- What are the costs involved and who pays?
- When can I start looking for adoptive families?
- Will I have contact with the baby after he or she is adopted?
- What are the legal matters I should consider?
- Who are the adoptive parents?
No matter how many questions you have, we will talk with you. You are under no obligation when you call. This means that we will talk with you for as long as you need and you are not required to pursue adoption with us or any other agency.
Concerns About Adoptive Families
Most birth mothers who contact Lifetime Adoption have never gone through the North Dakota adoption process before. You might be concerned or even scared about what to expect from the adoptive families. Let us put those fears to rest. All of the adoptive families who are contracted through Lifetime Adoption have been thoroughly screened. These hopeful parents offer stable, secure, loving homes for children. They are simply waiting to be chosen.
As the birth mother, you get to choose the adoptive parent(s) for your child. We encourage you to first thing about what is most important to you. Are you hoping for an open adoption that allows you to visit the child several times per year? If so, you may need to look only at adoptive parents who live in North Dakota. If visits are less vital, you can consider adoptive parents throughout the Midwestern United States or beyond.
Other factors you might consider with adoptive families include:
- Religious upbringing. Do you want the baby to be raised with a certain religion?
- Family size. Would you prefer the child to be part of a large family or an only child?
- Racial background. Do you find it important to have a racially diverse family?
If you are not sure of your desires, that is okay too. Look through our database of adoptive parents waiting to add to their families. This will give you a good idea of what to expect out of the adoption.
