Hi! We are Pete and Michelle. We are so grateful for the time you are taking to get to know us better. We deeply admire your strength and courage as you consider adoption for your child.

After finding it challenging to meet “the right one,” we each gave online dating a try and were each other’s first match. After exchanging phone numbers, we began chatting almost every day. The conversations were so easy, often lasting hours into the night. On our first date, we met for dinner at a local sushi restaurant. When Michelle got out of the car, Pete thought she was so pretty that she wouldn’t like him! When Michelle saw Pete, he was holding a bouquet of flowers and she thought he was a perfect gentleman. From then on, we were inseparable and fit in with each other’s friends and families seamlessly. A little over a year later, we were engaged and then we married in the summer of 2012.

Within a year of being married, we knew we wanted to start our family. After six years of trying and many unsuccessful infertility treatments, our doctors didn’t know why things weren’t working. We took a long, thoughtful look at our life together and what we truly wanted – a family. We feel very strongly that love is what makes a family and that adoption is our path. We cannot wait to welcome a child into our home.

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.
