Here are some answers to more common adoption questions that women considering adoption ask. If you have other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to talk with you.

Q: Do I Pay to Put My Baby Up for Adoption?

All Aggieland Adoption services are free of charge.

By the way, we use phrases like “place your baby” or “make an adoption plan” instead of “put up for adoption” or “give away.” A caring mother never “puts up” or “gives away.” Words are important to us because you and your baby are important to us.

  • Emotional and practical support through counseling
  • Physical support includes transportation to medical appointments, food, clothing, etc.
  • Thorough explanation of the adoption process and developing an adoption plan
  • The option to select your potential adoptive family
  • 24/7 support
  • Ensure the hospital meets your needs at the time of delivery
  • Regular ongoing support groups

Q: Why Should I Choose Aggieland Adoptions Over a Private Attorney?

A private attorney usually has very few, if any, prospective adoptive couples to present to you. You and the adoptive couple often find each other and enlist the attorney’s help. Attorneys do not provide counseling or ongoing emotional support. They do not make hospital arrangements or provide support after placement.

Q: Won’t Giving My Baby to Another Family Be Hard?

Adoption is a challenging and often painful decision, but sometimes, the hardest decisions we make in life are the best. Aggieland Adoptions provides thorough adoption counseling before, during, and after finalizing the adoption.

Q: Are Women Who Choose Adoption Irresponsible?

Adoption is a very responsible and loving decision to make.

When a woman places her child for adoption, she carefully selects the adoptive couple, the best adoption plan, and the future she hopes her child will have. There is nothing irresponsible about that.

Q: Will My Child Hate Me Because I Chose Adoption?

If you select an open or semi-open adoption plan, you will have the chance to explain to your child why you chose adoption for them. No parent has any guarantees about how their child will respond, but staying in contact with them shows they are loved by many.

Q: Don’t Adopted Children Have Emotional and Behavioral Problems?

That is an adoption myth. There is no research to suggest that all adopted children have emotional problems. Although some struggle with feelings of “not belonging,” others are close with their adoptive families.
