The Adoption Journey
Adoption today is vastly different from the way it was when your parents or grandparents were young. Adoption is a selfless and nurturing way to make sure that your child is given the love and care that you want her/him to receive. You will always be a mom, no matter what.
Is Adoption Right For Me?
As the birth mother, you get full control over how much you want to see your child. If you choose an open adoption plan, you may select and get to know an adoptive couple before placement. You can be assured of the love and protection they will offer your baby. Your child will grow up knowing that you are a part of his or her life because you can have as much contact with your child as you decide to write into your adoption plan. There is an extensive review process that adoptive families are required to go through as well.
There are also semi-open or confidential adoption plans. No two plans are alike because the people involved – birthparents, children, and adoptive parents – have varying needs and desires.
Some benefits of choosing adoption include:
- You can pursue earlier goals and plans.
- You can live independently.
- You will not have to parent before you are ready.
- You will have the freedom to choose if you want to have a long-term relationship with the baby’s father.
- You can feel good about your choice.
- You will have plenty of time to plan your future and your baby’s future.
You can have continued contact with your child (in open adoption) and know how he or she is growing and developing.
