What is a Texas Adoption Plan? [The Blueprint for Your Adoption Journey]

Now, let’s take a look at why an adoption plan is important.
Adoption Plan for My Baby in Texas [Why it Matters]
Your Texas adoption plan matters because it not only dictates what you want out of your adoption experience, but it also gives you the chance to be in control of the important decisions for you and your baby.
Among the many benefits of choosing adoption is avoiding placing the future of your baby’s life in the hands of others without any input.
We think you deserve the chance to have a say in your child’s future. Here are some of the many choices you’re in control of when making a birth parent adoption plan in Texas.
Finding the Perfect Adoptive Family
The biggest decision you get to make is choosing the future parents for your child. That’s why when making an adoption plan, we ask you to detail every personality trait, criteria and identifiable feature you feel is important in a potential match.
These are some examples of things to consider for an adoptive family:
- Do you prefer a certain age range?
- Do you want your child to have siblings?
- Is there a specific location you want for your baby?
- Do you want a prospective adoptive family to have a specific religious background?
- And more.
“I spent the next several weeks combing through what must have been dozens of wonderful families. Then, I found them — the couple that I immediately felt connected to,” Carmen said. “Once we found each other, it was as if we were attending a normal family get-together. We laughed and talked and enjoyed each other’s company. I grew to know and care for them — not only as the couple that would become the parents of my unborn son but as friends and family.”

Creating an Adoption Hospital Plan
Your hospital stay is an important time in your Texas adoption journey. In your adoption plan, you will include the precise expectations and needs for your labor and delivery experience.
These are just some of the questions to consider:
- Which members of your support team do you want at the hospital with you?
- Do you want to spend time alone with your baby?
- How much interaction do you wish to have with the adoptive parents?
- Do you want to take pictures with your baby? With the adoptive family?
- And more
Your adoption specialist will help you iron out every detail for your hospital stay when creating your Texas birth parent adoption plan.
Pre-Placement and Post-Placement Contact through Open Adoption
Part of making an adoption plan in Texas is determining the level of openness in your adoption.
Before the 1980s, adoption was generally viewed as something to keep private or anonymous. Now, most adoption professionals—our agency included—strongly recommend an “open” or “semi-open” adoption.
This means at least some level of identifiable information is shared between you and the adoptive family you choose. This also means you would have some amount of contact with an adoptive family. And, because you are in charge of your adoption plan, you get to choose the amount of contact you prefer.
Only you can decide which form of contact is right for you. As you continue to build your relationship, you can always decide to have more contact with the adoptive family, or if you need more space in your adoption, you can restrict the level of communication you have with the family.
Remember, you call the shots for your Texas adoption plan, which means both during the adoption process and post-placement, you get to decide on the level of communication you prefer to have with the adoptive family.
Randi chose open adoption for her birth parent adoption plan and cherishes the connection she gets to have with her baby.
“Every picture, it brightens my day. There are two things I check every day, the blog and my Facebook,” Randi said. “When I see a random picture that she puts on there, it just makes me feel like she’s not forgetting about me, and keeping up with what she said she was going to do.”
“I love still being able to have that connection with Juniper,” she added. “I get all jittery thinking about it because it’s going to blow my mind when she’s five and she starts talking, and I can talk to her and have a conversation with her.”
You can get more information on open adoption for your Texas adoption plan by calling one of our adoption specialists at 1-800-ADOPTION.

Take it from Scott Mars, founder of American Adoptions, and an adoptee himself.
“My mom and dad were a couple who weren’t able to become a mom and dad without adoption. Of all people in this world, my mom and dad deserve to be parents. And without adoption, they would not have been able to share their love, share their life, and give someone the life that I had.
“Because of adoption, my life was filled with love and opportunity.” You can watch Scott’s video to see his entire adoption story.
