BIRTH MOTHER'S BILL OF RIGHTS


As a birth parent you have:

  • The RIGHT to participate in all phases of the adoption plan.
  • The RIGHT to have any and all questions answered in a timely manner.
  • The RIGHT to meet and spend time with the prospective adoptive families you choose, so that you can make an informed decision for you and your baby.
  • The RIGHT to select the family who will raise your child.
  • The RIGHT to request financial assistance (as allowable by state law) for adoption and pregnancy related expenses, including medical, living, housing, transportation, counseling, maternity clothes and other support services.
  • The RIGHT to be treated with the utmost respect and to have your rights protected and enforced at all times.

Adoption is not for everyone. Only a select few facing an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy choose adoption as the loving alternative. The decision to place the child with a family for the purpose of adoption is the most loving, ethical, responsible and difficult decision one can make. The decision to give life to an unborn child demonstrates a courageous and unselfish act of love. The Law Offices of M.D. WIDELOCK respects and values birth mothers and their decision and will work hard to ensure that the rights of a birth mother are upheld.
