Could adoption be right for me?
Adoption can be a difficult decision, one that many women feel would be impossible to make. The truth is that, no matter what choice you make, it will be hard. However, adoption does allow for something selfless and beautiful to come from a complicated and difficult situation.
Depending on the financial or emotional circumstances surrounding your unexpected pregnancy, adoption might be the best decision for you. This could be for any of the following reasons:
- You feel like you are too young to be a parent
- You don’t want to parent, but don’t want to have an abortion
- You lack an emotional support system
- You don’t know how you would financially support a child
- You’re focused on school or your career
How does adoption work?
As the birth mother, you are in control of every step of the adoption process. From choosing the adoptive family for your baby to deciding how involved – if at all – you want to be in the life of your child, you make each of the decisions throughout the process.
