We care very much about our Expectant Mothers and the brave choice they are making. The adoption journey can be full of hills and valleys, but you don’t have to do it alone.
We are here to help answer your questions, and help guide you along the way.
“I want to be a mom one day, I am just not ready today!”
Pregnant and looking for adoption Information? We know that conceiving a baby can be a joyous occasion, but in some cases, it can cause anxiety for those that are not ready to be a parent. We provide options and guidance for birth parents who are not ready or not wanting to be a parent, yet. Birth Parents are truly the most selfless parents. Raising a child is the greatest and the most challenging responsibility, and in some cases adoption may be the best option for those that are not prepared to take on that role. We consider it a privilege to counsel and work with our Birth Parents.
“Can I choose to do a Modern Adoption? For instance can I choose and meet the Parents? Can I receive pictures and updates for up to 18 years if I choose? What if I want a more closed adoption?”
Many of our Expectant Mothers choose to do a Modern Adoption – which means each adoption is customized to meet the needs and wishes of the Expectant Mother. You can choose and meet the family that you feel drawn to and can envision your child with. A meeting is set up with that family, and if everyone is agreeable to the match then that would be the family who will adopt your child. We also try to visit with the adoptive family several times before the birth if time allows so you all become comfortable with each other. The hospital stay will follow the adoption plan you designed earlier with your adoption counselor. After the placement of the child, we will receive pictures and updates for 18 years so that you can be assured that your child is thriving and doing well. Receiving pictures and updates can help assure you that you made the right decision for you and your child. Our Birthparents have told us that receiving annual pictures and updates helps mend their hearts.
“Is Financial Assistance available if I need it?”
Financial assistance is available for pregnancy-related expenses. Generally, once a birth parent reaches seven months along she is eligible for assistance. Usually, those expenses can, but not always, include rent, groceries, a bus pass if its available in her area, her utility bill and phone bill. DFPS is strict when it comes to financial aid, so it is only utilized if a birthparent is unable to cover it on her own.
Adoption can be bittersweet, but we are here to help you any way we can.
If you are considering adoption for your child, and desire to know more about the adoption process, please give us a call. We will be happy to explain how the adoption process works and talk about your options. We are not here to talk you into placing your child, but are here to help you see all your options so you can decide what is best for you and your child. In addition, we hold a Birthmother Support Group regularly to help our Birthmothers process their feelings and find the support they need through the friendships with other Birthparents.
We know God is faithful and He will guide you in making the right decision. He thought of adopting us long before we were conceived!
“For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, “Abba! Father” Romans 8:15
“For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with HIs pleasure and will…” Ephesians 1:5
We try to encourage our clients. with the knowledge that God is faithful and loves His children. That their unexpected pregnancy can be an opportunity to see God work in their life. Give us a call and we will be happy to explain this process in more detail or can send you more information about how we perform our adoptions. If you would like to meet with a counselor, please give us a call and we can make an appointment to meet you!
IS ADOPTION MY BEST OPTION?
To help you decide if adoption is your best option, we created an Expectant Mother Questionnaire
Texas christian Adoptions had the privilege to be a part of a documentary called MsLed. Here is the link to the preview if you would like to view it. You can watch the full documentary on YouTube or Ruku.
The Creator of the film explains “What does “Choice” actually mean? What are we doing to uphold women facing an unplanned pregnancy? Diverse and unexpected real-life accounts address the betrayal and abandonment women sometimes face and offer them what they need to make empowered decisions.”
You can text 24 hours a day
We can explain the adoption process, and how we can help support you.
Hear from a Birth Mother who chose Texas Christian Adoptions
“My Counselor here was amazing with me throughout my entire pregnancy & adoption process. As a birth mother, I needed the loving support of a friend. She gave that to me in spades, plus so much more! Andrea helped me to find the perfect parents for my baby boy. She prayed for & with me to find peace & joy in my decision. Seven years later (wow, it’s been over 7 years), she is an incredible woman & still someone I consider a true friend. I have tried to send other women in need to her, & I, myself, would go to Andrea again in a heartbeat should I find myself in a situation that adoption was needed &/or desired! ❤
Thank you for helping me to find my son a family, for helping me give William the life he so deserves!”
