Considering Adoption? Learn how the adoption process work below. Simply take these steps to put your adoption plan in action.
STEP 1: Initial Contact
Contact A Rainbow’s End to review all your options and have any questions you may have answered.
STEP 2: Adoption Information Packet
Review the information in our packet we send you and complete and send back the adoption information forms to our office.
STEP 3: Create Your Adoption Plan and Find the Perfect Family
Decide on the type of contact you want with your adoptive family before, during, and after the birth of your baby. You can also speak with past birth parents to help you through the process and what to expect.
Select an adoptive family from the profiles you see on our website or from other profiles we have sent you.
STEP 4: Continue to Work on Your Adoption Plan
Continue to talk with your adoption coordinator regarding the adoption process and any questions you may have. During this time, we can set you up with a counselor if you so choose to help you through your emotions. You will also need to meet with a social worker during this time. She will counsel you on the adoption process and for you to express any needs you may have.
We will also start to discuss your hospital plan and what to expect at the hospital.
STEP 5: Placement of Baby
You will sign a parental relinquishment after the baby is born. Your social worker and attorney will further explain the process and your rights so you are fully aware of your rights and needs.
STEP 6: Post Placement Services
We will continue to help you through after the placement of the baby. You will start to receive updates depending on the type of contact you chose.
