Hello! We are Dave and Mary! Thank you for choosing to hear our story and learn more about us as prospective parents. We are extremely grateful for your time as you explore all options for your child.

Our story begins 10 years ago as sophomores in college. We realized after meeting, we lived two blocks away from each other our entire lives! However, Dave went to private catholic school and Mary went to public school—but, we met at the right time in our lives. The commonalities continued from there and we hit it off! We loved going for walks, getting coffee, going to local sports games or theater productions, and grabbing brunch or dinner! We got engaged after four years and married in the Fall of 2017. The fun has never ended and we love exploring life together! It has been extremely rewarding to grow together and build skills necessary to become successful parents.

After we got married, bought our home, and adopted our dog, S’mores, we knew we were ready to start our adoption journey. We have always known adoption would be our plan and we would not have biological children. Being adoptive parents in an open adoption, of any level, has always been our dream, and we cannot wait to welcome a beautiful child into our hearts.

Financial Support

Expectant mothers who choose to make an adoption plan may qualify for some level of financial assistance during their pregnancy. However, each person's situation and specific needs are different. Your adoption social worker can help you determine what level of assistance you qualify for and deserve. Many expectant mothers qualify for financial assistance to cover basic pregnancy and living expenses, including but not limited to - transportation reimbursement, utility assistance for phone, water, and electricity/gas, maternity clothing and supplements, etc.

FAQ’s about placing a baby for Adoption

I'm considering giving my baby up for adoption. How much does that cost?

It won't cost you anything. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, all of your medical and legal fees will be covered and you may be eligible for financial assistance with other pregnancy-related expenses.

I'm experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and don't know who the birth father is. Can I still place my baby for adoption?

Yes. Even if you don’t know the identity of the birth father, you can still choose to make an adoption plan. However, every adoption situation is different. The adoption social worker you’re assigned to will get to know you and your story first, and then guide you through the process accordingly.

When is the right time to talk with an adoption professional?

You can make an adoption plan at any point in your pregnancy, even after the baby has been born. But, it's important to start the process as early in your pregnancy as possible. Connecting with those resources will allow you to gain access to important medical services, including prenatal care, to help ensure a healthy pregnancy.

When I create an adoption plan, will I get to choose who is in the room with me during delivery?

One aspect of your adoption plan is the "Hospital Plan" an outline of how you'd like your hospital stay and delivery to go. You can craft this on your own or with the help of your adoption social worker. But everything is up to you. You’ll be able to choose who comes to the hospital with you, who is in the room with you during delivery, and how much time you’d like to spend with the baby before signing the final papers.

How much contact will I have with the adoptive family after I place my baby with them?

As part of your adoption plan, you'll determine whether or not you’d like to have an open or closed adoption or something in between. Open adoptions may include phone calls, messaging (via social media, email, or text), and/or periodic visits each year. Closed adoptions may include no contact at all or annual updates provided to the birth parent(s) by the adoptive family. Each post-adoption relationship is different and can vary based on what an expectant mother chooses in her adoption plan.

Wish Wednesday!

07/06/2022

Our wish is to build a beautiful triad relationship with the birth parents of our child.  We hope that someday we will be able to meet and that we will stay in contact throughout the child’s life.  We wish for our child, amazing self confidence and a sense of identity as a result of whatever level of openness an expectant mom is comfortable with as the journey continues.   https://www.facebook.com/Dave-and-Mary-Adopt-106838418686036 https://www.instagram.com/daveandmaryadopt/
