birth parentsAt Kathryn Wayne-Spindler & Associates, we understand that for birth parents it is a difficult decision to place your baby for adoption. Deciding to place a child for adoption requires serious thought. It is important to seek the advice of a trusted attorney like Kathryn Wayne-Spindler to ensure you are aware of all your rights and legal options.

Is Adoption the Right Decision for You?

Adoption can be a very loving and unselfish decision when made to further the best interest of your child. You may feel that now is not the time to become a parent. You may realize that there are couples who are looking forward to providing the loving, nurturing environment your child deserves. You may also be confused or conflicted. Kathryn Wayne-Spindler & Associates has helped countless birth parents navigate the emotional and legal process of deciding to place a baby for adoption, selecting adoptive parents and finalizing the financial and legal agreement that will make it a reality.

Will birth parents be able to choose the adoptive parents?

Yes. In fact, birth parents are encouraged to specify the characteristics they prefer in the adoptive parents. This can include age, religion, interests, hobbies and marital status.

Do birth parents have a connection to their children after adoption?

If an open adoption is agreed to, you may be able to see your baby, spend time with your baby and continue to have a relationship of some kind with your child as he or she grows up. You can also receive frequent updates on your child’s progress. On the other hand, you may prefer a closed or confidential adoption. We can help you decide what option will suit your situation.

Do birth parents have to pay legal fees or medical expenses?

No. The birth parents’ fees will be paid by the adoptive parents. Many adoptive parents even provide financial assistance for living expenses and medical expenses throughout the adoption process in order to ensure the pregnancy goes smoothly and results in a healthy child. Assistance can cover expenses such as: hospital care, counseling, medication, prenatal care, living expenses and transportation.
