What does a “Sample Adoption Parenting Plan” Look Like?

In many ways, preparing an Adoption Parenting Plan is akin to you deciding what life you think will be best for your child and then finding the particular family that matches up to your ideals.

What kind of couple do you envision? Have they been married a long time or are they young and newly married? Do they have other children or will this be their first? Do they go to church? Do they go to a specific church? Do they love sports? Do they have pets? Are they college-educated? Do they travel frequently? Will they homeschool? Are they vegan? Do they live in a small town or a big city? How will they discipline?

Then you get to decide which adoption agency would likely have the suitable families for you to peruse for interviews. Do you want to meet the family? Do you want an open, semi-open or closed adoption? Do you want the adoptive family in the room with you when you deliver?

As the birth mother — you get to choose. Even better, you can imagine all the possibilities and then decide a different course altogether. If you want an experienced guide to help you navigate this course, please consider contacting Living Hope Centers today.
