Meet Our Peer Support Network of Women Who Have Made a Loving Adoption Choice!
If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, you’re probably also facing a complicated mix of emotions like confusion, uncertainty, sadness, and worry. You may be wondering where to turn for help or worrying if you’re making the right choice. Know that there’s help available for you, and it’s designed specifically to meet your needs.
Peer counseling from a birth mother can give you the support you need as you sort through your feelings and make a decision that’s right for you and your baby. Most women thinking about adoption experience moments of doubt and grief. Your peer counselor can help you understand these feelings because she’s been where you’re at right now. All of Lifetime’s peer counselors are birth mothers themselves, having made an adoption plan for their child. It can really help to talk with someone who has also gone through an adoption!
Peer counseling is available free of charge and comes with no obligation to continue with adoption. You can receive counseling both during your decision-making process and after your baby goes home with his or her adoptive parents.
You can speak with your peer counselor regularly or only check in with her occasionally when you need support. It’s up to you to decide what type of adoption experience you want to have, and what type of relationship you want to have with your peer counselor.
“I talked to a woman who placed her baby seven years ago. Because of her support, I knew what to expect after placement. I felt normal because of her; she was able to tell me ‘oh yeah I felt like that too. You aren’t crazy. You’ll get through this.’ She offered me a shoulder to cry on and didn’t judge me.”
