It’s not uncommon for women to hear the word “adoption” and immediately say they could NEVER carry a baby in their womb for nine months and then just “give up” the child.
But the reality is that you would not be “giving up” anything. You would be giving TO your child, TO the adoptive parents, as well as to YOU.
You ultimately will decide which direction to take this pregnancy (parenting, adoption or abortion), but if you have any questions about adoption, take a look at BraveLove. It’s a fantastic resource with lots of helpful information that may guide you in your decision-making process. Also, we have staff who have experience with both placing a child for adoption and adopting children who would love to answer any questions you may have.
And if you’re looking for local adoption agencies or resources, let us know. We’d love to help.
