If you are in labor or if your baby is already born, adoption is still an option. It’s never too late.
It’s not uncommon for mothers to choose adoption from the hospital. This type of adoption is usually referred to as a last-minute adoption or after-delivery adoption.
Giving your baby up for adoption at birth is an incredibly brave and selfless decision. Whatever your reasons may be, if you’re not ready to be a parent, adoption is a responsible and loving option. When you choose adoption, you’re providing a waiting family with a most precious and long-awaited gift. At the same time, you’re giving your baby the gift of a life filled with love and opportunities.
Adoption can offer your baby:
- Safe, stable home life
- Financial security
- Emotionally ready parents
- Loving relatives and grandparents
- Medical, dental, and eye care
- Quality education
- Many opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life
You can choose adoption at any point after your baby is born, whether you’re in labor, at the hospital, or have already taken your baby home.
