If I am under 18 years old, do I need my parents’ permission to place my baby for adoption?

No. In the State of Ohio, you are considered to be an adult when it concerns making a plan for your child. However, we do strongly encourage you to talk with your parents about your plan and with your concerns. Open Arms Adoptions also requires that you speak with an attorney about your decision and this will be provided at no cost to you. We also encourage you to seek counseling throughout this process.
