If you want to make an adoption plan, we can give you financial help with necessities such as rent, groceries, and clothing. Being pregnant is stressful enough, and we can make sure you don’t have to worry about the finances of being safe and healthy.
Housing & Transportation
During and after your pregnancy, we can make sure that you have safe housing and reliable transportation. Getting to doctors’ visits and going shopping quickly and conveniently are important during your pregnancy, and we can help with the resources you need.
When you need medical care, you shouldn’t have to worry about how much it will cost or how you will get to your doctor appointments. We make your health our priority. Whether you are using Medicaid, private insurance, or if the adopting family is paying for care, getting regular prenatal and maternity care is the first step to having a safe pregnancy.

Talk to an Adoption Counselor
Our first priority is to help you understand your choices so that you can decide if adoption is right for you. For us to help you with the adoption plan that meets your needs, your adoption counselor will also get to know what your hopes and desires are in making the adoption plan.
Pick an Adoptive Family
We will only show you profiles of screened adoptive families who have the same preferences for an adoption plan that you do, and who have been thoroughly evaluated and screened before being approved as clients of our agency.
Complete your Adoption Plan
We will work to protect your interests throughout the adoption plan, but especially at the crucial period following birth at the hospital when the adoption paperwork is usually signed. Every Adoption Choices client is supported by her personal adoption counselor, but you also have access to independent legal counsel and the adoption process always goes at your pace.
Adoption Choices does not abandon any clients after the adoption. You will continue to receive financial support through your adoption plan, your adoption counselor will continue to work with you in our post-placement counseling program, and we will make sure that your open-adoption arrangements with the adopting family are set up and working according to your plan.
No one can tell you why you should or shouldn’t make an adoption plan. This decision is yours to make. The decision of making an adoption plan is obviously not an easy one, but sometimes it is the best choice you have. We are here to give you adoption information and counseling to provide you with resources that will help you make an informed decision.
There are many reasons women make adoption plans during their pregnancies. Some things you may want to consider while making your decision are:
The stability of your home and relationships
Your plans for the future
What you think is best for your child
Yes! Your adoption counselor will discuss with you what matters most to you in the family you choose and only present you with the profiles and information of the Texas adoptive families we have that fit your desires.
All of the families who are approved for adoption go through rigorous background and fingerprint testing and have to have criminal and child abuse clearances from both the state and federal government. All families have to demonstrate financial, mental and emotional stability and a readiness to parent. Additionally, each family has to go through a process called a “home study” in which they are visited by a social worker who completes an evaluation of the suitability of their home environment. Additionally, you are able to choose the family with which to make an adoption plan, and in some cases, meet them in person before the birth to ensure that you feel comfortable with your selection.
Today, adoption can allow you to create a relationship with your child’s adoptive parents that can give you as much, or as little, contact as you want.
Whether you want a more open adoption that includes regular communication and even visits, or a more closed adoption with more privacy and closure, Adoption Choices will help you make the adoption plan you want
