You are probably experiencing a range of emotions concerning your unintended pregnancy.
Adoption is a choice that we can help you explore. The loving choice of adoption gives you and your baby a future that benefits both of you. We have many loving families just waiting for the opportunity to give your child a loving home and the stability that your baby needs.
Here are the answers to some of the basic questions you may have.
Does adoption cost me anything?
No. Adoption services are provided by Small World at no charge to you. We will complete all the necessary legal aspects to complete the adoption. You will not need an attorney.
Will there be any financial assistance?
Depending on the state in which you reside, financial assistance may be available to you. Only a few states do not allow financial assistance. Typically, Small World is able to assist you with living expenses during your third trimester and one month following the birth of your baby.
Can I choose the family to adopt my baby?
Yes. If you wish to choose the family to adopt your baby, you may do so by looking through our profiles of families that have been approved and are waiting.
Will I have contact with my baby in the future?
There are several different options for you concerning contact with the adoptive family. These range from no contact to letters and pictures to ongoing physical contact. We will work with you to find the most appropriate solution for you, the adoptive parents, and your baby.
What about the father of my baby?
The father of your baby has rights just as you do. We would like to involve him in the adoption process if possible. If he is unknown or does not wish to pursue a plan of adoption, Small World will work with you to determine if his rights can be terminated by the courts.
