I Plan to Give My Baby Up for Adoption and the Adoption Agency Wants Me to Move to Another State. Do I Have to Move to Another State to Put My Baby Up for Adoption if the Adoptive Parents Do Not Live in My State?

I PLAN TO PUT MY BABY UP FOR ADOPTION BUT THE ADOPTION AGENCY WANTS ME TO MOVE TO ANOTHER STATE. TO GIVE MY BABY UP FOR ADOPTION DO I HAVE TO MOVE TO ANOTHER STATE IF THE ADOPTIVE PARENTS DO NOT LIVE IN MY STATE?

NO — ABSOLUTEY, NOT!!! You do not have to move to another state, should NOT do so, and should be very leery of a national adoption agency or local adoption agency that asks you to move for these reasons:

  1. Adoptions between states are common and easy to accomplish for competent and ethical adoption agencies and other adoption professionals that DO NOT require the birth mother to move out of her state of residence.
  2. If an adoption agency or adoption attorney wants you to move to another state, alarm bells should go off in your head. You should be very suspicious of their intentions and whether they can be trusted.
  3. If you move from your home to another state, you become completely dependent on the prospective adoptive parents and/or the adoption agency. What if you decide not to give up your baby for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan – will they still pay your expenses to return home? What if you have a C-section and need more time to recover — will they pay for your expenses during your extended recovery period?

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.
