I Don’t Think I Can Do Adoption…

pregnant woman sitting on the beachWhen they first start to consider making an adoption plan, many women think “I don’t think I could give my baby away.” The truth is adoption isn’t giving your baby away. It’s providing your child with a lifestyle that you might not be able to provide at this point in your life: a stable family, and a future. No matter how many months along you are, considering your pregnancy options is hard. But, you always have choices. Nowadays, women doing adoption can take part in every aspect of the adoption process. You’re able to tailor your own adoption plan and have choices every step of the way.

Some of these choices include choosing the adoptive parents for your baby from a wide variety of couples, and the ability to meet in person. Also, you can get on-going updates through emails, letters, photos, and visits.
