Get the information you need to make your decision in Kansas or Missouri.
Wherever you are in your decision-making process, Megan Rose can talk with you about your options. You might be considering abortion, adoption, or parenting. You might be thinking about whether you need someone to care for your child temporarily so you can keep your parental rights and parent when you're back on your feet. Whether you're pregnant or already parenting, we are here to help.
Talking with an attorney, an adoption agency, or even a family you might want to adopt your baby does not lock you into choosing adoption. This is one of the most important decisions of your life. You deserve to have all the information available to you before you make your choice.
Until you sign the final consent paperwork after the baby is born, your decision rests entirely in your hands. It's never too late to consider adoption, whether late in your pregnancy or even after the baby is born. Megan is not here to "talk you into" one option or another. She is here to answer your questions and make sure you know all your options.
This pregnancy may be occupying a lot of your thoughts and time, but you may have other concerns, such as making rent or having a safe place to live, or getting food, counseling or medical care. Contact Megan to discuss what supports are available to you while you go through this process.
Maybe you've looked up some adoption agencies, but you're not sure how to choose, or you researched information online, but you're not sure what's relevant to your situation. You do not need to already be working with an adoption agency to contact her. She can connect you with reputable, caring adoption agencies or social workers who can help you with that part of the process.
An adoption ends your parental rights, but it can be the start of a new relationship. Many birth parents and adopting parents stay in touch. How much contact you have depends on the type of adoption you hope to have. You may want an open, semi-open or semi-closed, or closed adoption.
Open adoption means the birthparent and adopting family get to know each other and stay in contact with one another. This relationship grows and changes over time, but you'll be able to keep in touch over the years. An open adoption can benefit you, the adopting family, and the child.
Semi-open or semi-closed adoptions might mean you exchange pictures or updates periodically. Maybe these updates go through the adoption agency or attorney instead of directly between you and the adopting family.
A closed adoption means you and the adopting family may know very little about one another and may have no way to contact each other.
Kansas and Missouri differ on the court's involvement with this part of your plan. Contact Megan today so we can discuss the details of the adoption plan you're hoping to make. Megan is glad to talk to you about all of your options.
Megan's role is to get you the information you need so you can make your best decision. She is independent from the adoption agency or the adopting family when she represents you. Megan can advise you on your alternatives to adoption so that whatever you decide, you can be confident that you know your options.
