The most important aspect of any open or closed adoption is being sure that the expectations of the degree of openness or confidentiality of the birth and adoptive parents match. Some people want a very open arrangement, including post-adoption visitation, and others want a more or completely closed adoption. If you choose an open or semi-open adoption, your adoption plan will include the selection of an adoptive family, determining the level of openness, creating a hospital plan, and more. If you choose a closed adoption, Rainbow of Love will select the family for you and all the information about yourself and the adoptive family will stay confidential.
When you find yourself experiencing an unplanned pregnancy it is important to look realistically at your options. Making an honest appraisal of the choices in front of you will leave you empowered to make the best decision for your baby.

When is it too late to make an adoption plan?
It is never too late, if you decided to place the baby up for adoption the day of birth, after birth. An adoption plan always can be set up. This can be made in the earliest weeks of your pregnancy as well.
Should I “give up” my baby for adoption?
Rainbow of Love aims for “great parents, great life”. Many of our birth mothers are young or aren’t ready to support another life. Adoption is a blessing to a family that can’t have children of their own. As a birth mother, you are not thinking for yourself, you are deciding that giving your baby up for adoption is the best thing because you want the baby to have a better life than you can provide for them.
Is it really all that helpful to meet with a counselor during my pregnancy?
We offer counseling services during and after, at no cost. Most birth mothers will experience different emotions and it is helpful to seek help if needed. Rainbow of Love wants to help the birth mothers who need it during all the process of adoption.
How do I choose a family?
Perspective adoptive parent(s) have book profiles made for birth mothers to choose from. You will be able to go through their profiles and select the family that matches your expectations.
How are adoptive families screened?
Rainbow of Love is very selective when it comes to adoptive families. They need to be financially stable, healthy, cleared of all background checks (FBI, Fingerprint and DFPS) and have been certified for all training requirements.
What is an “open” adoption?
An open adoption is a form of adoption in which the biological mother and adoptive parent(s) have access to varying degrees of each other’s personal information and have an option of contact, it maintains a significant ongoing contact after a placement. Rainbow of Love has little involvement in this agreement.
What is a “semi-open” adoption?
A semi-open adoption is similar to an open adoption but the relationship does not include the sharing of identifying information and typically involves the agency as an intermediary for ongoing contact. After child placement, many semi-open adoptions include mailing photos and letters between adoptive families and birth families, with a program we have called child connect https://www.childconnect.com/. Semi-open adoption is Rainbow of Love’s most successful type of adoption.
What is an “closed” adoption?
Also called “confidential” adoption (and sometimes “secret” adoption) Rainbow of Love will select the adoptive family for the biological mother based on desire wishes requested. Records of both parties are kept sealed.
How do I know the family is who they say they are and will keep their word?
If you decided to have a semi-open adoption, you can select the family based on profile books Rainbow of Love provides to you through the process. Once you have selected a family, you, your case manager, and the perspective adoptive parent(s) will set up a conference call and a face-to-face meeting. There after you can agree on the hospital plan. During these meetings, both parties will be able to get to know each other, future plans, an agreement can be set it place, and child connect will be offered.
Student & Teen Mother
You can feel overwhelmed by your unplanned pregnancy or by the circumstances around this pregnancy. And you may think that abortion is THE solution for you.
Father Of The Baby
What if I’m pursuing adoption when the father is unknown, uninvolved, unsupportive or even absent? Does the birth father have to agree to adoption?
How will my child learn about me
First of all, at the very beginning of your adoption plan decision, you will decide the level of communication and connection you will have with the adoptive family
Drug & Alcohol Abuse
While pregnant using drugs or alcohol can create many health issues for both mother and baby. In spite of this, many expectant mothers continue to use drugs and alcohol.
