One of your options when facing an unplanned pregnancy is adoption.
The thought of making a plan for adoption can be very overwhelming. It’s important to know that a great deal has changed in how adoptions are performed. The most significant changes have given the birth mother a great deal of control over the process.
Here are a few facts related to adoption:
You can choose the family
You can choose the agency or organization you work with
You can choose whether it’s an open or closed adoption and how much ongoing contact you have with the child
You can choose how things go at the hospital and throughout your pregnancy
You can choose the timing of your child’s placement
In most instances it is of no cost to the birthparent
Adoption is a wonderful option that is sometimes the best parental decision. It is a path many parents have walked and one you don’t have to walk alone.
