What Do You Think About Adoption?
No matter how you choose to deal with your unexpected pregnancy, your three options (abortion, parenting, and adoption) are equally difficult decisions to make. Although one may seem easier than another, they all have life-long implications. We understand this is a difficult place to be in, and we’re ready to talk about it with you.
Adoption is one of your options. In some ways, it may seem like the most difficult option, but it is also very rewarding. As a birth mother, you get to decide everything from the adoptive family to the amount of contact you would like to have. At Empowered Choices, we explain the process completely and support you all the way through. Again, no one should have to make these decisions for their future alone. We’re here to empower you to make the best choice for you and your future.
Is Adoption Right For You?
We’re positive your brain is spinning with questions, concerns, and most likely, a lot of anxiety. We understand. Deciding what to do about an unexpected pregnancy is a big decision. At Empowered Choices, we want to be a safe place where you can share your heart and your fears. Our counselors are ready and waiting to help you literally 24/7.
As you consider making an adoption plan for your child, think about the following questions.
- Can another family give my child a more stable living environment than mine?
- Do I want both a father and a mother to parent my child?
- Is there a family who will want my child?
- Do I feel like choosing adoption is giving up and giving my child away?
- What if my partner (the child’s birth father) says “no” to adoption?
These questions and others are important. We want you to be able to make an informed, empowered decision for your future, and that begins with answers to your questions.
If you are considering making an adoption plan, we recommend Nightlight Christian Adoptions. All adoptive families through Nightlight, who are approved to adopt a child, have been carefully screened before being accepted into our program. They have had training, extensive interviews, home visits, FBI & criminal background checks, and much more. You can be confident they will provide a stable living environment.
You choose the type of adoptive family that is important to you because you are in complete control of the process. If your child’s father is no longer in the picture, but you would like your child to be adopted by a mother and a father, the choice is yours. So many couples are waiting for a little one. You can be assured yours will be loved.
Never think you are giving up or giving away your child when you choose adoption. Making an adoption plan takes courage. It is the first decision you make as a parent – putting the needs of your child before your own.
