6 things bmoms love about open adoption.jpgOne of Lifetime’s goals is to educate women who are considering adoption. We feel it’s necessary that you’re aware of all the choices and rights with modern open adoption.

And, we let you know that you’re totally not alone as you think about making an adoption plan; many women have been where you are right now. So today, Lifetime is sharing what 6 women have said about adoption, and why they love open adoption. We’ve removed everyone’s names, for privacy reasons.

1. “Open adoption means I can pick the loving family, and feel safe with my decision.”

2. “I like the fact that I’ll always know how my child is doing and where they are.

3. “I know that I did the right thing in doing an open adoption. I know things are good with my child and that he’s happy!”

4. “Because I have an open adoption, I’ll know how my baby is being raised and treated by a caring family. They can also give my daughter what I’m unable to provide: stability.”

5. “I chose to adopt out my baby so he can have a better start in life!”

6. “I’m so glad to be able to have the closure that open adoption brings. I’m able to know that my child will be ok.”

If you would like to speak with a woman who’s made an adoption plan, please text or call Lifetime Adoption at 1-800-923-6784.

Our peer counselors can relate to where you’re at! They’re here to help you navigate your adoption decision-making process.
