Birthfather Support & Services

Birth fathers that are seeking support for an adoption plan or involvement with an adoption plan have access to adoption information and services. Many birth fathers are active participants in adoption planning. They understand that adoption is in the best interest of their baby and want to provide a social and medical history that will allow the child to have access to this information as needed or as they so choose. Being a part of the adoption plan can help birth fathers to feel confident and supported as they move through the process. Involvement with the planning for your child’s future can allow for a child to have information about their birth father and to know of the love that was given to plan for their future.

It is still possible, in many instances, for birth fathers to be involved with the adoption plan whether the birth father is still in a relationship with the birth mother or not. Talking with an adoption counselor or adoption agency can help provide information and support to answer questions about the adoption and make decisions that are best for your child. Your involvement in the adoption plan can help to bring comfort to the birth mother and her decision to make an adoption plan. Most importantly, know that you have many choices in planning for your child.

Planning for the Hospital

Making a plan for the hospital helps to ease the anxiety and creates a positive experience for the birth of your baby. With the birth mother’s permission, you can be a part of planning for the hospital. Some of the decisions you will make involve deciding who you would like to be at the hospital. You may choose to have the support of your family and friends, adoptive family and the agency staff or you may choose to just have the private time alone at the hospital. With the support of your counselor, you and the birth mother can compose a plan that works best for you.
