Making an adoption plan is an opportunity to give your baby a positive future. You may think that you would never choose adoption for your child, but many women find that adoption is a solution that is good for themselves and for their baby.

How Do I Know If Adoption Is Right For Me?

The decision to place your baby for adoption is not easy. However, many women make this choice and are happy knowing they gave their baby a bright future.

As the birth mother, you have the right to make important decisions regarding the adoption process. You can choose whether it will be an open or closed adoption, decide if you prefer a private arrangement or would like to work with an agency. When it comes to making an adoption plan, you are in the driver’s seat. If you are contemplating adoption, you may be ready to consider it if you…

  • Don’t want an abortion but aren’t ready to be a parent
  • Want to provide your child with a 2-parent family
  • Want to provide your child emotional and financial stability
  • Want a life for your child that you know you cannot provide

Adoption Facts

Adoption is not about ‘giving up’ your child; it’s about giving your child a future by placing them in a family that you have personally chosen. You’re not abandoning your baby; rather, you will forever be the loving first parent actively involved in planning for your child’s future.

Through an “open adoption” process, you can meet and maintain contact with the adoptive parents you’ve selected. This openness can be beneficial for your child, ensuring they grow up with knowledge of their history and avoiding unanswered questions about their family of origin.

In an open adoption, children understand that their first parents loved them so deeply that they facilitated a way for them to have the life they truly wanted. Adoption involves a legal transfer of parental rights from one parent to another, establishing a permanent arrangement.

It’s essential to clarify that adoption is distinct from foster care or “going into the system.” Adoptive parents undergo a thorough home study to ensure the well-being of your child in their permanent home.

You have the time to decide what you believe is best for your baby. Recognize that the unique person growing inside you is one-of-a-kind, carrying a special and entirely unique essence.
