Adoption Services in Vermont
Considering Adoption in Vermont
Chances are, you have never gone through the adoption process before. We have. Lifetime Adoption has more than 30 years of experience facilitating adoptions in Vermont and throughout the rest of the country. We can guide you through the adoption in Vermont, helping you to understand all of the decisions you need to make, such as:
- The adoptive parents of your child
- How involved these parents are in your pregnancy
- Whether or not adoptive parents attend the delivery
- What kind of relationship you will have with the child after the adoption is complete
We will also advocate for you throughout the adoption. We will work with the adoptive parents you choose. We will attempt to help you if you are struggling financially during the adoption. We may even be able to offer a scholarship so that you can continue your education after the child is born.
The Cost of Adoption in Vermont
The good news to birth parents is that adoption proceedings are entirely paid for by the adoptive parents. You will not have to pay legal fees. Lifetime Adoption never charges you for our services. You may have pregnancy-related expenses, including medical expenses, housing, maternity wear and so on. Those expenses can sometimes be covered by the adoptive parents. Call us to discuss exactly what you need: 1-800-923-6784.
Open Adoption in Vermont
Parents adopting a child in Vermont can count on Lifetime Adoption to facilitate open adoptions. The scope of the open adoption is determined by the birth mother, but you also have a choice in the matter. If you prefer closed adoptions, simply state so on your application. We will only present your information to those birth mothers who want no further contact with the child. We do not recommend this. Children are happier and healthier when they are part of an open adoption. Likewise, more birth mothers will consider you as adoptive parents to their children if you are flexible.
Give us a call and we will discuss this and every other issue you may face during the adoption. Talking with us about adoption in Vermont in no way obligates you to contract with our agency. It simply gives you the right tools to make the best decisions for your future.
