Making A Plan For Your Child

If you are pregnant and considering adoption, you probably have questions. What resources are available? How does the family selection process work? Where can you turn for help ensuring the best possible future for your child?

At Herrin & Leach, we have helped thousands of expectant parents who faced similarly difficult decisions. We can help develop a plan for your child and ensure that your needs are met during the process. In the end, we strive to ensure the adoption you envisioned becomes a reality.

What Resources Are Available To Birth Parents?

First of all, whether you work with an agency or not, as an expectant mother many resources are available to you including adoption counseling and financial support for:

  • Housing
  • Utilities
  • Phone service
  • Travel
  • Clothing
  • Lost wages due to the pregnancy
  • Medical appointments, services, products, labor and after care

If at any time during the adoption process you are unclear as to what is available, we are always available to answer your questions and ensure these needs are met.

Selecting The Perfect Family

As a birth parent, you are entitled to decide which family is the "best fit" for the child. This may include deciding on the religious or spiritual upbringing, the family structure as well as the economic, educational and travel resources that a family is able to provide for. You can even pick the type of job the adoptive parents have, where they live or if you desire the child to be with a stay-at-home mom.

Working with the experienced adoption-only attorneys at Herrin & Leach, your wishes and hopes for the child adoption will be listened to and carried out. We will work diligently to ensure that your wishes are honored. We make sure that the family you choose to raise your child also shares your desire for either an "open" or "closed" adoption.
