Does adoption cost me, the birth mother, anything?

No. Adoption services, counseling, legal services, and medical services are provided or arranged by Small World at no charge to you. We will complete all the necessary legal aspects to complete the adoption. You will not need to pay an attorney or anyone else.

  • Living expenses – We may be able to help birth mothers with necessary living expenses if the unplanned pregnancy disrupts usual income such as from employment or support from parents. Living expenses may include rent, groceries, and maternity clothes.
  • Medical Expenses – Most women are eligible for Medicaid or are covered by private medical insurance. We can assist in the application process or in determining eligibility. If a birth mother isn’t covered by Medicaid or private medical insurance, we may be able to help with medical expenses.
  • Attorney and Agency Fees – There’s nothing to worry about. We’ll handle every detail of your release and that of the birth father. There’s no need to work with a separate attorney and there are no costs to birth parents.

Will there be any financial assistance for me?

Depending on the state in which you reside, financial assistance may be legally available to you. Only a few states do not allow financial assistance. Typically, Small World is able to assist you with reasonable living expenses during your third trimester and one month following the birth of your baby. That is a total of 4 months worth of financial assistance. These funds come from the prospective adoptive couple and are a genuine desire to help you as the biological mother of the child they hope to adopt.
