Placing a child for adoption when you already have a child – or children – is very common. In fact, the National Survey of Adoptive Parents (NSAP) reports the majority of women who choose adoption for their baby are already raising older
children. Often, they are not ready to provide a home for another child, cannot afford the costs of raising a second child, or are simply not in a stable situation to care for another baby. These are all reasons why expectant/birth mothers consider adoption.
