What is the adoption process?
First, call or text Open Arms Adoptions at 330-697-4751
A social worker will be assigned to work with you and will be there during the entire process.
Choose a family
You will be shown profiles of families that are waiting to adopt. You can meet the family and ask them questions. You can meet as many families as you like until you find the one that is right for you.
You are matched, now what?
Once you are matched with a family, you can grow your relationship with them. It’s up to you how much you interact and what that looks like.
All our services for you are FREE. You are not responsible for any of the adoption expenses. You are also entitled to receive up to $3,000 in living expenses to help with rent, utilities, and groceries. Just let us know what you need.
At the hospital
Let your social worker know when you go into labor. They will connect with the hospital social worker to ensure everything goes smoothly. You can choose who is with you and who sees your baby.
After the hospital
Your social worker will meet with you 72 hours after the birth for you to sign the final paperwork. You can also meet with an attorney for free to ask any legal questions. Your social worker will discuss any post-adoptive support you may need.
We are here for you during this difficult time.
