Good question! But first, let’s address the phrase, “give up baby for adoption.” While most people casually say, “giving my baby up for adoption,” we prefer to say “choosing adoption for my baby.” The reason we say “choosing,” (or “placing”) rather than “giving up,” is because, in all reality, you’re not giving up anything – you’re choosing the best life possible for your baby, and in with most adoptions, you will continue to have contact with your child, if you choose.
Now, back to your original question. When facing an unplanned pregnancy, it’s important to consider all of your options before deciding what is right for you and your baby. Every woman is different. Every situation is different. Only you can determine what is the best path to take.
The first thing you should do is gather as much information about your options as possible. If you need help gathering this information, or simply need someone to talk to – Adoption Associates can help. Our services are free of charge and placing a child for adoption will cost you absolutely nothing. We take care of everything, including all of the legal arrangements.
