can i change my mind about adoption

Can Birth Mom Change Mind?

You are a birth mother who’s agreed to place your baby for adoption.

When Can I Change My Mind?

You may change your mind at any time prior to signing consent papers. See Consent to adoption.

After papers are signed, in private adoptions, you have 30 calendar days after signing the consent to change your mind.

However, if you signed a Waiver of Right to Revoke Consent Independent  or Waiver of Right to Revoke Relinquishment in front of a judge, your consent is immediately irrevocable, and you cannot change your mind.

If you signed a Waiver of the Right to Revoke Consent in front of an Adoption Service Provider , you can change your mind until the Waiver becomes final at the close of the next business day after signing.

Can I still choose adoption after my baby is born?

YES!  Even if your baby has already been born, it is not too late to choose adoption.

You can still make an adoption plan. Your baby will not go to foster care, as long as you have an adoption plan in place. With an adoption plan, you can choose to place your baby in the home of adoptive parents.
