How Late Can A Child Be Placed for Adoption?


How late can you place a child for adoption?

Some expectant mothers are hesitant to contact an adoption professional late in their pregnancy. They may fear that they have waited too long, that there won’t be enough time to find the perfect adoptive family, or that it is too late to choose adoption once their baby has been born.

But the truth is it is never too late to do what you think is best for yourself and your baby. Adoption is always an option, whether you are considering adoption after pregnancy or in the final days before your baby’s birth.

Here, learn more about placing a baby for adoption after birth or late in your pregnancy with Peter Wiernicki.
