What should I know about adoption?
Placing your child for adoption is a very difficult decision to make, and for many women facing an unexpected pregnancy, it seems impossible. However, adoption can truly bring something beautiful and special out of a difficult situation. This option could be right for you for any of the following reasons:
- You are too young to parent
- You’re heavily involved in school or work
- You do not want to be a parent but also do not want to have an abortion
- You cannot support a child emotionally or financially
how the process works
As the birth mother, you have complete control over the entire adoption process, from choosing the adoptive couple or family yourself to deciding how much time, if any, you want to invest in a relationship with your child.
different types of adoption
Yes, there are three different types of adoption: open, semi-open, and closed. Which type you select depends on how involved you want to be in your child’s life once he or she is born. Open adoptions are becoming increasingly popular since they allow for an ongoing relationship between the birth mother and child with terms negotiated and set by the birth mother.
Would adoption be good for my child?
Approximately 90 percent of all adopted children over the age of 5 feel positive about their experience and life, and well beyond half of all adopted children eat dinner with their families six nights a week.
