Coral Springs Hospitals for Prenatal and Maternity Care and Delivery
If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and considering adoption in Coral Springs, you have a lot of decisions to make. These decisions are all part of your adoption plan — who you want to adopt your baby, what kind of contact you want with them post-placement, how much financial assistance you need, etc.
You’ll also need to create a hospital plan, detailing how you expect your childbirth experience to go. As part of this plan, you’ll select a local hospital to receive prenatal care and eventually deliver your child. Your adoption specialist will work with this medical provider to prepare you all for this important moment. Remember: All of your medical expenses leading up to and during this stay will be covered by the adoptive parents you choose.
Local hospitals in Coral Springs, Fla., include:
Coral Springs Courts for Adoption Finalization
If you’re an adoptive parent, your adoption journey won’t be officially over until you complete an adoption finalization.
This is a court hearing that typically takes place six months after adoption (and after you have completed any required post-placement assessments). A judge will review your adoption paperwork, ask you a few questions and, if they approve, will issue a final decree of adoption. This makes your child a legal member of your family! This is a celebratory moment, so don’t forget to bring a camera and your loved ones.
Finalization hearings for Coral Springs adoptions typically occur at the Broward County Courthouse.
