Many people have a misleading idea of adoption.
They have heard harsh stories about how newborn babies are ripped from their mother’s arms and placed with strangers. Some think, “How could you go through your life never knowing what happened to your child?”
Adoption is very different today from even twenty years ago. You have the right to select your baby’s parents, meet them and even keep in touch over the years. These changes have made the adoption option much easier to consider.
There are many reasons to consider adoption. Maybe you know in your heart that you can’t take care of your baby. There’s not enough time, money, or help. Maybe you already have children and one more baby would be too much stress on you! Perhaps you are just afraid and want to know more about this choice.
The good news about your situation is that there are many loving couples. They are waiting for a person like you – a person that wants to give a baby life, and share that baby with them. They want to love you and your baby and provide a strong and stable environment where you child can flourish.
You are doing the right thing by researching all of your options. Adoption is a choice that you need to think about carefully, but if you can’t parent, no matter what the reason, adoption may be the right choice for you! Our center would be glad to provide you with a referral to several adoption agencies in our area.
