Birth Mother Matters in Adoption Episode 52 – Red Flags in Adoption Explained

When a young birth mother makes a lovingly brave decision to place her baby up for adoption, the eager adoptive parents working with the Arizona Adoption Centers make contact and await with excited anticipation.

They and she recognize that this choice offers to give her child the best life circumstances, the best life direction, and the best parenting tools available that will reward herself, the prospective adoptive parents, and the child.

Adoption gives the child a future and hope. Adoption gives the birth mother a sense of peace and an established plan for her own future. But what if there is a snag during the process and how are those potential problems recognized as red flags so that disappointment and discouragement are minimized or avoided? 

Kelly Rourke-Scarry and Ron Reigns discuss what “red flags” look like and how to navigate away from what could be danger warnings when the journey becomes bogged down with obstacles. 

Most of what might be considered “red flags” or warnings that the adoption process may be disrupted in some way or rail-roaded are often not red flags at all – most are basic concerns that have appeared that might look like the birth mother has changed her mind.

Scarry and Reigns talked about the issues that are causes for concern. Some could be red flag issues like the birth mother always asking about money – the fear that her financial stability is being threatened, or not wanting to go to the OB-GYN regularly for prenatal care because of the fear of being judged for being an unwed mother and/or her decision to place her baby for adoption.

The birth mother may seem distant or unwilling to pursue a relationship with the adoptive parents. Scarry and Reigns spoke of how the adoptive parents’ fears and their interpretation of the birth mother’s actions are reasons for worry.

Between the interaction of the caseworkers and counselors involved, most of the red flag issues can be alleviated. 

Arizona Adoption Centers address those anxieties and others to assure a smooth transition between birth mother and the prospective adoptive parents every step of the way.
