Finding out you’re pregnant can bring a whirlwind of emotions. Excitement. Fear. Curiosity. Shock. While seeing the positive on the pregnancy test can be the moment some women have been waiting for for months, for others, the moment brings much more complicated feelings.
If you’re pregnant and considering placing your baby for adoption, you’re already being a great mother. There is no shame in considering adoption. Many women find themselves in situations where they don’t have the resources or desire to raise a child. Adoption is a brave and beautiful option for women who don’t feel ready to become a parent or to grow their family.
If you've been looking for giving baby up for adoption pros and cons, you're in luck. Here’s a list of Pros and Cons to placing your baby for adoption:
Your Baby Can Have a Stable, Loving Home
Many women want to place their baby for adoption because they don’t feel they can raise their child in the stable, loving environment they desire for them. With adoption, you have the option to choose the incredible family who will love and care for your child for their whole life. There are so many wonderful, dynamic families who want nothing more than to welcome a new baby into their home. Women who place their baby for adoption often feel confident about their decision when they see just how amazing their baby’s adoptive family is.
You May Be Able to Receive Updates About Your Child
These days, it’s not uncommon for women to choose an open or semi-open adoption. With these options, birth mothers can stay in contact with their child’s adoptive family throughout their life. The contact usually consists of pictures, letter updates and sometimes phone calls. With open adoptions, birth mothers may be able to visit the family in the future if all parties agree to it. Being able to hear about their children as they grow up gives many birth mothers a since of peace and joy.
