Questions and answers about placing twins for adoption

Considering adoption is often a complicated decision. When you’re pregnant with two babies, you may feel twice as much pressure and have twice the questions. Our compassionate and knowledgeable counselors can help you over the phone or in person. In the meantime, here are some answers to common questions about twin adoptions.

Is the adoption process for twins the same as the process for one baby?

The adoption process for twin adoption is the same as the process for single babies. You contact our Texas adoption agency to discuss your options and learn how modern adoption works. At our agency, we offer open and closed adoptions that allow you to choose how involved you will be with your child. You choose a family for your baby, and the Legacy staff helps you before, during and after your delivery.

Will the agency separate my twins and give them to two different families?

When you are considering placing twins for adoption, one of your first concerns is probably whether your babies will stay together. No worries! Our agency does not separate twins. We have adoptive families who are eager to provide twins with a loving home where they can grow up and thrive together.

What happens if I want to keep one baby and place one baby for adoption?

Twins have a strong bond, so we strive to keep them together. However, we realize there may be some exceptional circumstances where you decide to parent one child and place the other for adoption. Our adoption counselors can help if this is the case for you.

Are there adoptive parents who want to adopt twins? What if I find out that I’m having twins after I’ve chosen a family who only wanted one baby?

At our modern adoption agency, we have families who very much want to adopt twins. Since our expectant parents and our adoptive families usually finalize the matching process in the third trimester, it would be extremely rare for a “surprise” twin birth. If this did happen, rest assured that there are plenty of families who absolutely want twins, and our staff will work with you to place the babies with one of these families.
