 4 Ways Choosing Adoption as a Birth Mother in Your 30’s in Las Vegas May be the Best Option for You

Experiencing an unplanned pregnancy can be stressful at any age. The reasons for that stress may vary greatly, as each and every pregnant woman is different, but that doesn’t make your anxiety any less valid. Adoption is always an option for you no matter what. It does not discriminate against age or circumstance and can be beneficial to you, your baby and the adoptive parents in a variety of ways.

If you are a pregnant woman in your 30’s considering adoption, Adoption Choices of Las Vegas is here to help. Our adoption agency will provide all the information and resources you need to understand the adoption process, and how placing your baby for adoption will impact your life. You will be assigned an adoption caseworker who will help you navigate all the important choices and decisions within the adoption journey, and help you determine what is best for you. Our goal is to ensure that you and your baby remain happy, healthy and safe throughout your pregnancy and adoption journey.

Here are some of the top reasons choosing adoption as a birth mother in your 30’s may be the best option for you:

  1. Your Family already Feels Complete

Perhaps the life that you have is working really well. You have your partner or spouse and a child or two together. Your family feels complete, and you’ve worked hard to balance your finances and resources to ensure that all of your family’s needs are met. Adding another child would stretch you too thin. Neither you or your partner or spouse has the available income to give the child the life, attention and care that he or she deserves. 

If this sounds like your situation, choosing adoption as a birth mother in your 30’s is an option for you to consider. There is no shame in doing what’s best for your baby and the rest of your family. If you’re not able to provide physically, emotionally, mentally and financially for an additional child at the moment, there is a loving adoptive family who can. 

  1. You are Focused on Your Career

You’re moving up in the company. Nearing a promotion or position you’ve strived for. Your job may be demanding and require long hours, but it’s what you love. Your mind is completely focused on making a name for yourself and working hard in your career. But then, you find you’re unexpectedly pregnant. You don’t have the time or resources to provide for your child. In all reality, you barely have enough time for yourself these days, and feel like you practically live at your office. The baby would most likely spend more time in daycare than it would with you. That’s not the life you want for him or her.

Moving up in your career is a huge milestone and achievement to be proud of. So, it’s understandable that throwing an unwanted pregnancy into the mix can feel agonizing. But it doesn’t have to be the end of your career if that’s not in your game plan. Adoption is always an option.

  1. You’re Not Ready to Have a Child

There is no right or wrong time to start a family. Only when you feel ready. No matter your age or circumstances, if you don’t feel ready to have a child, then parenthood may not be the best route to take during this season of your life. Maybe you envisioned having your life together by the time you reached your 30’s, and that you’d be ready to have a child of your own. Yet, life rarely goes the way we anticipate.

If you don’t feel ready to have a child in your 30’s, that’s okay. It’s not easy to admit that, but there is no shame in doing so. There are many adoptive families who are ready and willing to love, care and support your child. If you choose to place your baby for adoption with our agency center in Las Vegas, you will have full control over who that family, couple or individual is. Through reviewing handpicked prospective adoptive parent profiles, you will get to choose who you think best fits the life you want your child to have.

  1. You Don’t Want to be a Mother at All

You may never have imagined becoming a mother. That is completely okay. Parenthood is a large commitment, and the decision to raise a child is not one to be taken lightly. Plus, despite what culture and society says, not every woman wants to or is meant to be a mother.  

If you find yourself in this boat, and want what’s best for your child, don’t worry. Adoption is still an adoption. There are many hopeful and waiting adoptive families who long to become parents, and would cherish the opportunity to raise your child. They will be happy to adopt your baby and give them a happy and healthy environment. Adoption may be a good choice for you if you do not want to be a mother.

Choosing Adoption as a Birth Mother in Your 30’s

No matter what age or life stage you are in, choosing adoption will always be a gift to you, your child and the adoptive family you choose. You should never feel guilty or any less of a woman for choosing adoption. No one can tell you what you should or should not want, especially just because that is what other women your age want right now. 

Everyone has their own route in life, so if yours does not include a child right now or at all — that’s okay! You do not have to live the same life as your peers. What’s important is that you decide what is best for you and your baby. What will make you feel the most confident and give you peace of mind that you made the right choice.
