Pregnant and Considering Adoption in New York
Your feelings can be overwhelming when that pregnancy test comes back positive, and you were not expecting it. With all those emotions, it can be hard to know what to do next. After you share the news with family, friends, and the baby’s father, you may be given a lot of advice which can make the situation even more confusing.
Don’t panic. Take time to contact Lifetime Adoption to find out what your options are. You can call, text, or fill out our online form, and a non-judgmental coordinator will be there for you. She will offer to put you in touch with a professional or peer counselor, and they can help you work through the decisions you need to make.
Open Adoption in New York
- Would you like to decide on the parents or have a coordinator choose for you?
- Would you like to receive updates after the adoption is final?
- What kind of contact would you like?
- How do you see your hospital stay going when you go into labor?
- Would you like the adoptive parents to be an active part of your pregnancy?

If parenting is not the right choice for you now, placing your baby for adoption with a loving family is a brave choice. Open adoption now means that you are not saying goodbye to your child forever. You can receive updates, share a social media page, get pictures, and even visits. Many of our birth mothers have great relationships with the families who adopted their babies. We recently heard from one of our birth mothers who got married, and her daughter was there, along with the adoptive father she chose for her daughter, and he even walked her down the aisle.
What is the Adoption Process in New York?
Next, your coordinator will send you some profiles, and you can look through adoptive family profiles online and choose a family for your child. You can choose a family from New York or from another state. You can decide how much contact you would like with the family you choose while you are pregnant. If you are placing a toddler or older child for adoption, a professional counselor will be involved in creating a plan to make the transition healthy for everyone involved in the adoption.
Your adoption coordinator is happy to help make a hospital plan if you are pregnant. Your plan will include: who will be in the delivery room with you, who will hold the baby first, who will cut the cord, and other details. At no cost to you, you will have your own attorney who will ensure sure you understand your rights and will make sure all laws are followed. An adoption agency in New York will help the adoptive family as well and make sure they are aware of your wishes.
