You’ve made the decision to put the baby you are carrying up for adoption, and you are feeling scared and alone. You want to make the best decision, because your primary concern is for your baby’s future. You have many questions, and you need answers as you go through this challenging time in your life. You might be wondering who will adopt your baby and if you will be able to keep in touch with the new parents. Modern adoption agencies provide all the answers you need, as well as personal and supportive care as you go through your pregnancy.
Personal Care for Birth Mothers
According to Unique Adoptions, neither your age nor the number of pregnancies you have had prior to this one matter. This pregnancy and you are what matter. You will get the personalized attention you need to make you feel comfortable and secure in the decision you have made. Emotional and physical needs are supplied at no expense to the birth mother. Your health and that of your baby are at the top of the priority list. Modern adoptions allow the birth mother to have an open adoption. You can work out the details and arrangements with the adoptive parents that you select. If you have specific racial or religious preferences, you can choose the parents you believe best meet your criterion. If you have questions at any time, there is always someone available to talk to you.
Questions about Adoption
According to the Adoption Support Center, every birth mother has many questions about the adoption process. Will I be able to get pictures of my baby? Will the adoptive parents keep in touch with me? Will I ever be able to have a visit? These questions and many more can be answered by the adoption agency counselors and the lawyer that has been appointed to handle your child’s placement. Open adoptions are common now and easily arranged when all parties are in agreement. An open adoption guarantees your child will know who you are and may choose to establish a relationship with you when he or she is older.
Your adoption agency will put you in touch with agencies to help you get back on your feet after the adoption. There is assistance for job placement, housing, and education.
If you are considering adoption, call an agency, make an appointment, and meet some caring people who truly want to help you and your baby.
