Develop a detailed roadmap that reflects your goals, objectives, time frames and budget so that our direction is clear and our pathway is direct towards your baby destination.
Connect you with the necessary firms that meet your requirements to get your adoption process underway as quickly and efficiently as possible. This is a mission critical point in choosing the right law firm and/agency for you and understanding all that they offer within their presented fee schedules. Baby Buzz will review all documents with you and for you to be sure that the fine print is read and understood. Baby Buzz will also be educating you on “Adoption Friendly States” when it comes to birth parents’ termination rights.
Assist with applications, home study paperwork that will be required, adoption profile books and other items that will come up as you undergo the initial process.
Finalize all contracts and needed paperwork and personal documents. We make sure that all the T’s are crossed and the I’s dotted. Not submitting complete and accurate paperwork will prolong the process. It is important to also really understand agency or firm contracts so that you are completely aware of what’s included, what’s NOT included and all the terms of that contract.
Working together through the selection process.
Waiting / Anticipation
Our goal is getting to phase 2 quickly and efficiently. Once all necessary paperwork, documentation and adoption profile books are complete and have been submitted your job is temporarily complete. This is exciting however because this also when the “waiting” begins. Baby Buzz is here to continue to support and guide you through this exciting but at times stressful portion of the process. Our team will provide support, counseling and coaching if necessary, to get through this in the most positive and hopeful manner possible.
Once you have been selected it’s time to meet a potential birth mother. Baby Buzz will counsel you on ways to connect with her, safe questions to ask, and appropriate conversations during this phase of your process. Not all birth mothers are fit and its alright to say “no” during this phase. Baby Buzz will be with you to listen to your concerns and assist in offering suggestions.
Your baby’s journey to thier new home.
It’s time to meet your baby! We can assist you with travel tips, from the types of hotels to consider, to last minute shopping needs for the baby and yourselves as well as prepare you to bring your baby home.
We will support you through the post placement process. Baby Buzz will respond to concerns or answer any questions regarding home-study agency visits and legal support. Every state has an “adoption waiting” period and Baby Buzz will guide and support through this phase as well as assist in new parenting questions as you begin your parenting journey.
This will be a time when you are really excited to journey to the courthouse to finalize the adoption of your child. Not all courts require parents to be there in person, but many parents take this opportunity to invite family members and friends and make it a photo opportunity for your child’s adoption scrapbook. We highly recommend this.
Post Legal Adoption
It’s time to get busy and order all necessary documents. Baby Buzz can assist you in obtaining birth certificates, social security cards and passports if necessary.
Your family’s journey and hint to how to navigate.
Raising an Adopted Child
Baby Buzz offers counseling and support to assist parents as they enter into parenthood of an adopted child. There are many phases for this process and we often find that support begins to be needed at age three or four and even into the teenage and adult years.
