Adoption is a brave act filled with love that is constantly growing and expanding. Adoption is not something to hide. Today, it is one of the most courageous, caring decisions a mother who is not ready to parent her baby can make for her child.
If you are pregnant and know you are not yet ready to raise a child, we admire you for considering the positive option of adoption. Adoption is a lifelong journey, and choosing to place your baby in a new and loving home is only the beginning. As an expectant mother, you have many options to consider as you begin your adoption journey.
The beauty of today’s adoption model is that there is no one-size-fits-all adoption plan. Your plan will be unique to you. With the help of experienced, compassionate adoption professionals, you can design a plan that takes into consideration both your needs and the needs of your baby.
Many expectant/birth mothers today choose to create an “open adoption” plan to keep in contact with their child and his or her adoptive family over the years. Open adoption allows expectant/birth mothers to choose adoptive parents for their baby, develop a relationship with that family, and remain a part of their child’s life.
Before deciding if open adoption is right for you, it is important to fully understand how an open adoption works, and the where it can take you and your child. Adoptions With Love has created this infographic so that you can learn how positive an open adoption experience can be.
Today, 95 percent of licensed adoption agencies offer open adoption plans. Adoptions With Love has been helping expectant/birthmothers make thoughtful, loving adoption plans for nearly 30 years and we are ready to begin an open adoption plan with you.
