Choosing Adoption is Not “Giving Up”
Giving up your baby for adoption is NOT giving up. It is a common term that is used in casual conversation and in the media. It is derived from the term: “put up for adoption.” But if we were to really think about it, giving your baby up for adoption is the opposite of giving up. It is the brave decision to give your baby the type of life that you may not be able to provide at this time in your own life. By making an adoption plan for your baby, you are planning for their life; you may not have planned to have this baby but you are certainly taking responsibility to make sure they have a life filled with love, education, holiday traditions, extended family support and many opportunities. This is far from giving up.
Adoptive parents and birth parents can form a very special bond in everyone loving this baby. Sometimes expectant/birth parents find that special “click” when they find the perfect family to adopt their baby. When an expectant/birth mother knows she has found the right family who was meant to love her baby, she can feel an indescribable feeling of overwhelming peace.
Adoption can be a beautiful, positive and loving choice for your baby if you are not in the position to raise your baby. Don’t let society or the media tell you that you are “giving up.” Tell everyone that you are “giving an opportunity” to your baby for the rest of their life. Feel proud and brave to make a positive choice for the life of your baby. We think you are remarkable and you should think so too.
Adoptions With Love understands that everyone is an individual and no two people are alike. This adoption plan is YOUR plan. Some expectant/birth parents want a closed adoption plan. Others want a semi-open adoption plan where they can choose the family, meet in person and receive letters and pictures over 18 years. And some expectant/birth parents want a more open adoption plan with on-going yearly meetings. We have all of those options at Adoptions With Love.
