Adoption is often, “the forgotten option.” However, if you are pregnant and feel you are not yet ready to be a parent, adoption may be the ideal option for you and is a worthwhile consideration.
If you choose adoption, you can be part of developing a birth plan that you’re comfortable with and that suits your objectives for you and your unborn child. Adoption allows you to pursue your life goals without long-term risks to your body or emotional health. At the same time, you will gift a couple who eagerly wishes to have children the family they’ve so desired. Adoptions can be a very beautiful option for all involved – the birth mother, the baby and the adoptive family.
There are different types of adoption: open, semi-open or closed. As the birth mother, you are able to make that choice. In an open adoption, you have the opportunity to choose the family with whom your child is placed.
