Expectant mothers or birth mothers make an incredibly brave and loving decision when choosing adoption.
Adoption means making a customized plan to provide a forever family for a child.
Parent my baby: the term “parent” describes an active relationship. When a woman is making a decision between adoption and parenting, there is considerable thought given toward what her future would look like.
You do not just “keep” a child, like an item put on a shelf. Parenting is an 18+ year choice full of action, responsibility, and daily care. It is important that an expectant mother understands this is a heavy choice, especially if she is not in a place at the time to accept the responsibility to be a parent.
While a pregnancy may not always have been planned, a child is always wanted. He or she is wanted by the Lord that created them and the adoptive family that brought them into their home. The child is also very loved by his or her birthmother that made a loving plan for the child.
Some considering adoption chooses an open adoption -they want their child to always know that he had been adopted, receive photos, updates, or even a visit. Private domestic adoption is the only type of adoption that promises prospective adoptive couples a newborn baby.
Every adoption plan begins with a parents concern about providing for their child’s future. Whether you are pregnant or have a child that has already been born, you will be offered information, practical and emotional support, and a nonjudgmental environment to talk about your thoughts, feelings, and ideas about adoption.
