We all have important choices to make in life. If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, deciding if you want to put your baby up for adoption is one of those choices. We know that facing this pregnancy is difficult, but you do have options.
Adoption is a loving decision. It takes a great deal of love and sacrifice to even consider it. We want to help you explore parenting and adoption and let you determine what is right for both you and your child at this time in your life.
What is adoption?
Before making your choice, it’s important to understand exactly what adoption means. Adoption is a permanent, legally binding process that takes place when a woman — or set of parents — decides not to parent and chooses to allow another family to raise her baby. After the adoption is finalized, the birthparents are no longer the legal parents of the baby and no longer have any legal parental rights.
Why choose adoption?
There are many reasons birthmothers choose adoption. Overall, birthmothers decide to put their baby up for adoption because they care about themselves and, more importantly, they care about their baby. No reason is too big nor too little to put a baby up for adoption. Here are some common reasons we’ve heard from birthmothers at Angel Adoption.
- She is not ready to be a parent.
- She feels she is too young or immature to raise a baby.
- She is not in a financial position to care for a baby.
- She fears a baby might interfere with finishing school or furthering her career.
- She does not want to be a single parent, or she wants her baby to grow up in a two-parent family.
- She believes adoption is the best chance for her baby to grow up well cared for both emotionally and financially.
What can adoption offer your baby?
We believe adoption is one of the most loving and selfless gifts you can give both your baby and their adoptive family. Your decision to put your baby up for adoption will be a long-awaited miracle for one of our adoptive families. If you’re not ready to be a parent, you can still plan your baby’s future by choosing a stable, loving family for your baby. Here are just a few things adoption can provide for your baby.
