Birth Mother Services
For women considering adoption and deciding to make an adoption plan for their baby, we at The Law Offices of Berkowitz & White, PLLC, will collect all the necessary information from you, including your medical and social history, and assist you with living expenses.
These expenses may include housing rent, basic telephone services, utilities, food, maternity clothing, toiletries, medical insurance, transportation cost etc.
Find Out the Right Adoptive Family
Finding out the right adoptive family is a crucial part of the adoption. So, we are here to help a birth mother with additional information and insights so that they can find out the right adoptive family for her child. You’ll be able to pick from a long list of pre-screened and home-study-approved loving family profiles. A birth mother can meet with the adoptive family if she wishes to see them.
Create an Adoption Plan
The adoptive family and the birth mother generally create an adoption plan as part of their adoption roadmap. This adoption plan includes the type of adoption based on the post-adoption relationship they want. There are three types of adoption plans available- open adoption, semi-open adoption, and closed adoption.
Plan for Placement
The mother must execute a consent for adoption on the day she is discharged from the hospital. After that, the baby will stay with the adoptive family members.
