How a Last-Minute Adoption Works

It’s not too late for last-minute adoption: Choose a loving family to raise your baby

Whether you have already brought your baby home, just delivered and are in the hospital, or are ready to deliver, a last-minute adoption is still an option for you. You can still make the loving choice to allow one of our loving waiting families to raise your baby and provide him or her with the life you cannot right now. Modern adoption empowers you to make this decision and pursue the future you envision for yourself and your baby. Here’s how it works at our Texas adoption agency.

  1. Call Legacy Adoption Services at 888-429-6004. Our counselors are available 24/7 to meet with you to discuss your options, answer your questions and provide support throughout the process.
  2. Decide whether you want to commit to a last-minute adoption plan. Identify the things that are important to you and your baby.
  3. Meet the adoptive family you have chosen, and take photos with the baby and the family if you want to remember this moment.
  4. Sign placement papers.
  5. Send your baby home to his or her loving, forever family, and NOT to foster care if CPS was otherwise going to take possession of your child.

The Legacy team will continue to manage the paperwork and legal requirements associated with the last-minute adoption, at no cost to you. Our counselors will be available to help you handle the emotions that follow childbirth and big decisions.

Answers to your “what if” questions about modern adoption

Choosing a last-minute adoption can be confusing and overwhelming, but our counselors are here to help you answer your “what if” questions.

  • What if your family doesn’t understand your decision? Our counselors can help you talk with family members or help you decide how to talk with them yourself.
  • What if you have no family support or support at all from the father of your baby? You won’t be alone. The Legacy family is here to help and support you every step of the way.
  • What if your baby has special needs? At Legacy, we believe there is a loving space for every baby. We will have a forever family who will provide the love and care you want for your baby.
  • What if you can’t imagine your life without your baby? Of course, it’s difficult to see the future, but we will support you during your recovery and provide counseling and other services to help you move forward and see the possibilities that exist for your life.
