Parenting may be the right decision for you, so you owe it to yourself and your baby to think about what it would take. We can help connect you with resources that make you feel confident and supported if you choose to parent your child.
- Some questions to ask yourself if you’re considering parenting:
What is my current situation and what kind of support would it take to parent my child?
Are there programs in my area that would help support me and my child?
What are the most important things I want to provide for my child?
What do I want my life to look like in one year? In five years? In ten years?
Adoption is so different today from what it was just a few decades ago. In the past, birth moms were expected to end their relationship with their child. Today with open adoption, you can remain involved in your child’s life, if you choose to, while still pursuing your own future. You can also choose to have a closed adoption. Adoption agencies have long waiting lists of couples who are unable to have children, and who are ready to raise and love a child. It’s normal to be sad after placing a child for adoption. However, many birth mothers who have made an adoption plan say that they have peace of mind in knowing they are giving their child the best possible start in life. This thought can be a great source of strength for you. We can help you work through your feelings. Call us for help.
