Perhaps you have found yourself in an unplanned pregnancy and are overwhelmed with where to go from here. Maybe, you planned on getting pregnant, and due to unforeseen circumstances, can no longer care for your baby. Regardless of which situation you find yourself in, there is a good chance that you have found yourself asking: Should I give my baby up for adoption?
Every situation is different. You come from a different background and have a story that is completely unique to you. There is no single solution that will work for everyone! Because of this, we cannot give you a black and white answer. However, we can provide you with the support and information needed to make the best decision for you and your baby.
When it comes to asking "Should I give my baby up for adoption?", know that you will be heard, you are not "giving up", you are the author of a new story, and you will be taken care of.
Your Voice is Heard
You may find that one of your greatest fears is not being heard. An unexpected pregnancy can make you feel hopeless and like you don’t have anywhere to turn. But, even if you are unable to lean on friends and family, know that your voice and story matters to us.
The Adoption Specialists at Texas Adoption Center want to listen to your needs, fears, and dreams. We will help you explore and understand all your choices, then sit down together to craft the perfect adoption plan.
Best yet - you will be in driver's seat the entire time. We recognize your strength and give you the tools you need to be empowered to choose whichever beautiful future you want to create.
You Are Not "Giving Up"
In addition to this, we would like to rewrite the common phrase, "give up for adoption". Although you may find that "giving up" your baby for adoption seems like the correct way to describe the situation, we disagree. "Giving up" is the very last thing to describe what you are doing.
Placing your child for adoption is one of the strongest and most courageous decisions that you could make as an expectant mother. Placing your child for adoption shows the amount of selfless and unconditional love you have for your baby. Adoption means rewriting the story for your child and being the sole reason a different family gets to begin their first chapter. Which leads us to our next point...
Creating a New Story
We all have a story to share. It’s written moment-by-moment and day-by-day. Each experience writes a different chapter, until in the end, each life is celebrated for what he or she has done and who each person has become throughout every struggle and victory. That’s why adoption creates such a beautiful legacy.
You hold the pen that writes the beginning of your child’s story. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, then the first chapter begins with the family. By exploring each family's likes and dislikes, and even their values and preferences, you can choose the best family for your baby. After adoption, you can even continue to watch your child's story unfold through pictures, emails, letters, and scheduled visits.
As the pen is passed to the family, every adventure and milestone will be cherished as the script of your child’s life continues to be written.
At Texas Adoption Center, we understand it can be hard to choose whether or not to place your baby for adoption. Each day can bring new doubts, and the unknown can raise more questions. These feelings are normal. Because we know the ups and downs, we want to assure you that you’re not alone.
