After the legally required five day waiting period, you will be asked to sign a voluntary act of surrender transferring custody of the child to adoptive family. Before signing the surrender you are required to participate in two counseling sessions with a licensed professional.We will let you know where you need to be and when; we’ll facilitate the required counseling – and any additional counseling if it will help. We will also provide transportation if that will help you. We want you to feel supported, not pressured; welcomed, not exploited. In exchange, we want you to always be honest with us and to cooperate when action is necessary.
