You should consult with an adoption attorney. You need to have the contract that you signed reviewed. If possible, you will likely want to consider working with another agency or adoption attorney, as from what you have written, this one does not seem to be handling your adoption properly. An adoption attorney or adoption agency working with a mother should be in regular contact, explain what support you are eligible for, help you to find a counselor if desired, etc. Also, you should never be charged any money for placing your baby for adoption. Legal and agency expenses are covered by the adoptive parents.
