Making A Plan For Your Child

Finding The Perfect Family

Many birth parents wonder about the resources available to them, how the family selection process works and whom to trust to ensure that their hopes for the child are fulfilled.

At Herrin & Leach, we have worked with thousands of birth parents in making a plan for their child and ensure that all of their needs were met and the adoption they envisioned becomes a reality.

What Resources Are Available To Birth Parents?

First of all, whether you work with an agency or not, as a birth parent many resources are available to you including adoption counseling and financial support for:

  • Housing
  • Utilities
  • Phone service
  • Travel
  • Clothing
  • Lost wages due to the pregnancy
  • Medical appointments, services, products, labor and aftercare

If at any time during the adoption process you are unclear as to what is available, we are always available to answer your questions and ensure these needs are met.

Selecting The Perfect Family

As a birth parent, you are entitled to decide which family is the "best fit" for the child. This may include deciding on the religious or spiritual upbringing, the family structure as well as the economic, educational and travel resources that a family is able to provide for. You can even pick the type of job the adoptive parents have, where they live, or if you desire the child to be with a stay-at-home mom.

Working with the experienced adoption-only attorneys at Herrin & Leach your wishes and hopes for the child adoption will be listened to and carried out. We will work diligently to ensure that the "best fit family" is located and selected. We make sure that the family you choose to raise your child also shares your desire for either an "open" or "closed" adoption.
