We are able to give you financial assistance for expenses that are birth related expenses.
We encourage you to pick an adoptive family that you feel is a good match for you and your child.
There are several future contact options to choose from. You can have the adoptive family share photos and updates with you 1 to 4 times a year, keep in contact via phone, in person or over the internet, or you can set up in person meetings. It is up to you and the adoptive family.
There is no expense to the birth family. The adoptive family helps pay all the fees.
You are not legally required to tell your parents that you are pregnant or that you are planning an adoption. They have no legal right to the child. Often secrets cause lots of problems in families and can be very burdensome to a prospective birth parent. We will help you work with your family during this difficult period.
Kansas and Missouri law requires that the prospective birth father be notified. In those situations where we are unable to locate the prospective birth father, other legal avenues are available to complete the adoption.
Let the staff at J & J Adoptions help you make an informed decision on an adoption plan.
