How The Sharing Of Information Works In The Adoption Process

Relationships & Family Blog

If you are currently pregnant, and you are thinking about placing your baby for adoption, it is important to understand how information is shared during the adoption process between yourself, the adoption agency, and the potential adoptive family.

#1 Your Information

When you go through the adoption process and work with an adoption agency, you are going to need to share your pregnancy information with the adoption agency. The adoption agency is going to need to know when you are due. They are going to want to know about the medical care the baby is receiving. In many cases, the adoption agency can assist you with getting the medical care you need to have a healthy pregnancy.

Next, you are going to need to share information about the father of the child with the adoption agency. They are going to need to know if you know who the father is. If you don't know who the father is, that is okay as well. There are different laws in every state regarding adoption and the father of the child, and the adoption agency will help you with the legal side of things regarding the child's father.

The adoption agency will also collect some information to share with prospective adoptive parents. They are going to want to be able to share your first name, medical history and the state that you reside in with potential adoptive parents. Any additional information about yourself that you share with the adoptive family is up to you.

#2 Adoptive Family Information

You are going to receive information about the adoptive family as well. Generally, you will get print and video profiles of potential adoptive families. These profiles will provide you with detailed information about the adoptive families. You will learn about their lifestyle as well as their personal interests and pursuits. You will also learn details about their relationship with each other and with their extended family. You will learn about what their home looks like and what they do for work.

You should get enough information to help you develop a clear picture of how the potential adoptive family lives their day-to-day life and what they value. This information is provided to you so you can figure out if your values match up with the potential adoptive family for how you want your child raised.

The adoption agency will help you with the emotional, medical and legal side of the adoption process. They will require you to at least share basic information with prospective adoptive parents, although you have a large degree of control over how much information about yourself that you share with prospective adoptive family. You will get a wealth of information about potential adoptive families to help you find the one that will be the right fit for your child.
