Tips for Spotting the Right Place

How to Choose an Adoption Friendly Hospital

Deciding to place a baby for adoption is an incredibly difficult decision. Once you’ve made the choice to provide your child with a life full of joy and happiness through adoption, your Friends in Adoption team will work with you to create an adoption plan. This adoption plan will cover the process components of adoption and what you are comfortable with. It includes traits you’d like in an adoptive family, contact plans for your open or semi-open adoption, and your hospital stay.

Your hospital stay is vital to plan, as it eliminates the uncertainty and confusion in the excitement of giving birth. Most importantly, you need to know you are in an adoption friendly environment. In an adoption friendly hospital, you know the staff has experience with the process, will support you through every moment, and will honor your adoption plan. However, hospitals may not clearly announce their experience with adoption.
