Pregnant and Addicted to Drugs in Texas: Can I Choose Adoption? 

Yes. You can always choose adoption even if you’re battling drug addiction while pregnant. 

One of the most important responsibilities a parent has is providing a safe and healthy environment for a child. We know being pregnant and addicted to drugs is a complicated circumstance, so we also know parenting may not be the right option for you

In this case, we are here to help you create an adoption plan, find the perfect adoptive family and guide you through every step of the adoption process to create a better future for everyone involved. 

We’ve worked with hundreds of pregnant women addicted to drugs in Texas, and in doing so, we see these incredible benefits which we hope to help you experience: 

  • You get to give your child the best chance at life with a loving family. 
  • You’re giving a special gift to an adoptive family dreaming of growing their family through adoption. 
  • By choosing adoption and getting the support and adoptive services we offer, you get a chance to get clean, healthy and get a fresh start in life. 

Wouldn’t you like to see your child go to a loving and stable family that you get to choose? 

You can do that when you work with us because you are in charge of your adoption. That means determining what personality traits and criteria you feel are most important for your child. You can view our available adoptive families online even before you begin creating your adoption plan. 

We also offer assistance for pregnant addicts, which includes financial aid for pregnancy-related living expenses and free medical care. Birth mothers addicted to drugs while pregnant often tell us how much they value our ability to provide free medical care.

What Happens When You Have a Baby in Jail?: Is Adoption Possible for Me? 

Yes! Contact our agency at 1-800-ADOPTION to get more information on adoption, create an adoption plan and find a family for your baby

Adoption while a birth parent is in prison can be the best decision as raising a child as a birth mother in jail isn’t an option. In some cases, a birth mother may seek a temporary guardianship with a friend or family member. However, the birth mother loses the ability to control what happens with her baby. 

How do you know the temporary guardian will parent your child safely? 

By choosing adoption, you control the entire adoption process, even from jail. That means you get to choose a family that matches any specific criteria you feel is vital for your baby. You’ll also have the chance to get to know them, ask questions and feel confident knowing they plan on parenting your child in a manner you feel comfortable. 

So, how do you choose adoption in jail? 

You might be surprised to find that the adoption process is essentially the same as for any woman. Just because your choosing adoption in jail doesn’t mean you aren’t entitled to the support, adoption services and many benefits of adoption from our agency. 

Depending on which facility you’re choosing adoption in jail from, you may need to first contact your caseworker. Then, he or she can help you get in touch with us to get more information on your adoption. 

Your adoption process will consist of: 

  1. Choosing adoption 
  1. Contacting one of our adoption specialists to create an adoption plan 
  1. Search through the adoptive family profiles that match the criteria you listed in your adoption plan 
  1. Complete your adoption paperwork to make your adoption in jail legal 

What about adoption while the father is in jail?  

As a birth mother, you can still choose adoption while the father is in jail. Our agency will provide you with a trusted and experienced adoption attorney that will help explain adoption laws and birth father rights in Texas. 

Heather found herself in this very situation, but we were there to help her get started on the adoption process and create a better future for her baby. 

“I was alone, scared and very worried about what the future held for my unborn baby, my children and me. My husband and I had made some bad decisions that affected our whole family,” Heather said. “He was incarcerated at the time of the adoption and I knew Luke was going to be better off with a different family. I contacted American Adoptions and they were kind, caring and showed me a great deal of understanding.” 

Now that you know adoption is always possible for pregnancy in prison, call us at 1-800-ADOPTION to get more information or get your adoption in jail started today. No matter your circumstances, we work with hundreds of adoptive families eager for the chance to give your baby a loving home. 

Can You Give a Child Up for Adoption Even if You are an Immigrant? 


Adoption is always an option for putting a child up for adoption without U.S. Citizenship in Texas.  

In situations like this, we get asked, “Will I get in trouble for putting a child up for adoption without U.S. citizenship?” 

No. You will never need to worry about getting in trouble for choosing adoption as a non-citizen. When you work with our agency, your information is kept private and protected and never given to government authorities. 

We are committed to helping every woman thinking about adoption. Because so many of our thousands of birth mothers over 30 years in adoption come from difficult circumstances, we can help you. 

Even though you may not have U.S. citizenship, if your baby is born in the U.S., you have every right to choose adoption if you feel it’s the best decision. 

Because your adoption experience and finding the right family for your baby is important, we offer many benefits during the adoption process

  • Financial assistance for pregnancy-related living expenses 
  • Free medical care – Because you can’t apply for federal Medicaid as a non-citizen, that doesn’t mean you have to worry about your medical care when pregnant. Adoption can be a great option with our agency because we cover all of your medical costs. All of your medical paperwork remains sealed and confidential. 
  • And more 

Call us at 1-800-ADOPTION to get more information on how you can begin the adoption process today. The perfect family is waiting, and because of our national size and scope, you never have to worry about finding people that want to adopt undocumented kids.  

Through open adoption, you can still maintain a connection to the family you choose despite your citizenship status. 

Can You Give a Newborn Up for Adoption if You Have an Existing CPS Case? 

Adoption is always for your family, even if you are currently involved with Child Protective Services (CPS) with one of your other children. 

If a CPS case is open or CPS has custody of one of your children, you can still place your unborn or newborn baby for adoption

It’s important to remember that we are an adoption agency specializing in private domestic adoption. If you have a child in foster care due to a CPS case, you should work with your caseworker to determine what options you have. 

When it comes to placing your child for adoption when CPS is involved with your family, contact our agency at 1-800-ADOPTION and get your adoption plan started.  

When CPS is involved with your family, or you already have a child in CPS custody, adoption might be the best option for you. 

You’re in control of your adoption, including creating a specialized adoption plan and finding the perfect family for your baby when you work with our agency. Choosing adoption and avoiding CPS involvement where you lose the ability to make decisions for your baby is one of the many benefits of working with us. 

If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption, call us today to create an adoption plan. Birth mothers involved in CPS cases with children in foster care may not realize that CPS will automatically place a newborn in foster care after delivery. 

By speaking to one of our trusted and experienced adoption specialists, you can get the adoption process started and remain in control of what happens to your baby. 

When CPS has already become involved, many women ask, “Can I adopt my child out if she has been taken by social workers?” 

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Once CPS and has custody of your child, they are in control and responsible for where your child is placed. 

So, when you’re wondering, “How to adopt my child when he’s in CPS?” Unfortunately, at that point, adoption is not an option. 

You can read more about adoption when CPS is involved here and get connected to one of our adoption specialists by calling 1-800-ADOPTION. We want to help you find a fantastic home for your baby when parenting isn’t currently an option, and you’re involved with CPS. 

We have adoption opportunities for you with profiles for hundreds of adoptive families eager for the chance to give your baby the perfect home.
