Why Should I Choose to Put My Baby Up for Adoption

When you are facing an unplanned pregnancy or unwanted pregnancy, you will be considering the different options you have for your pregnancy. Parenting is an obvious option but maybe you aren’t ready to be a parent or don’t want to be a parent. There is nothing wrong with not wanting parent a child. Terminating the pregnancy is also an option but it doesn’t have to be your only option. Sometimes women feel like this is their only option if they don’t want to parent. That’s just not true. Adoption is an option as well.

Adoption is a positive, healthy choice and while it can be difficult, it can also be a loving, rewarding experience. Often, the key to achieving a positive experience during the adoption process is to reflect on your motivation or reason for wanting to choose adoption in the first place. Some reasons that expectant mothers often ending up choosing adoption are:

  • financial instability or lack of support supplies to raise a child
  • fear of being a single-parent as a result of an unknown or an unsupportive birth father
  • addiction or drug/alcohol abuse
  • sexual abuse or assault
  • family opposition to keeping the child, or
  • age (too young or older age). 

If you are considering adoption for any of the above reasons, or honestly, ANY other reason, do not get consumed with the stereotypes that come with placing a child with adoption. None of these reasons make you any less of a mother or a parent or a person!

Choosing adoption allows you –especially if you are in a situation where you feel that you cannot raise a child– to trust that your child will be raised in a loving, safe home that can provide him/her with all the opportunities possible in life. It’s also an opportunity to bring a child into the life of a family who otherwise it might not be possible for.

In modern adoption, a relationship can be developed between the adoptive family and you as the birth parent. All parties can remain in contact with one another through open adoption. Open adoption is a way to stay connected with your child post-adoption. Open adoption allows the birth parent to stay in communication (which can involve talking through social media, pictures, writing letters, in-person visits, and more) with the child and to have a presence in his/her life. Of course, a closed adoption is also an option but we are seeing some level of openness more and more in todays’ adoptions.
