Adoption Services in Iowa
For most women, pregnancy is an exciting, happy event. For others, it is a troubling surprise. You may not be ready to have a child. You may already have too many mouths to feed. The money or support for a baby may simply not exist. Should you find yourself in a situation that is not ideal for a child, the best choice may be adoption in Iowa.
Make Someone’s Dreams Come True
There are currently about three million couples in the United States who are unable to have children. Infertility is a devastating, heartbreaking ordeal. A couple that so desperately wants to have a baby but cannot, for any variety of reasons, often feels incomplete and alone. Those who have not suffered through infertility can seldom understand the complex emotions and the mental toll it takes. Most couples who seek adoption in Iowa are those who cannot have their own children.
Your pregnancy can be a great gift to a couple that has tried and failed to have their own biological children. Most couples turn quickly to adoption when fertility treatments fail, only to find that they may have to wait years before a child comes available. Your choice of allowing a waiting couple to adopt your baby is a grand, selfless act that has no comparison.
Putting Yourself First
While the choice of infant adoption in Iowa is a dream come true for waiting couples, it is also the right decision for you and your baby. You deserve to live the life you planned for yourself. It is not selfish to put yourself first; it is the right thing to do.
Choosing adoption does not mean you must sever all contact with your child. As the birth parent, you can decide what kind of relationship you want to have with the baby. Most adoptive parents are more than willing to allow visits several times each year. If you would like to be updated on a regular basis, you can arrange that as well. You can even sign the child’s first birth certificate.
Most importantly, it is you who chooses the adoptive parents. You can decide the most important factors for raising your baby, and then choose the adoptive parents based on those factors. It is your prerogative to allow yourself the right to decide what is best for your child.
