“I already have 3 children and I just recently learned I’m pregnant again. I’ve always been able to make things work financially, but my boyfriend left and I’ve hit a very hard time lately. My family is helping with my other children since I lost my job and have to move soon. I’m not in a place to have another child, so now I’m thinking about adoption.”
This was an email we got this week. It’s an example of just ONE of the reasons a woman may choose adoption. Sometimes, at the point when she’s pregnant, she may be in a situation that she never imagined or is working hard to change.
Many women find themselves in unexpected situations and the pregnancy is just a part of the challenges in her life at the time.
Know that it’s never too late to choose adoption for your baby, and there are no “wrong” reasons for doing adoption. There are loving adoptive parents who are ready and excited to adopt a baby, who would also welcome a chance to get to know you and to have an open adoption.
