Becoming a mother, whether this is your first pregnancy or not, is about making mature decisions. For example: what is best for you and your child? Write a letter to your child with all of your wishes and dreams for him or her. What would you like him or her to experience in life? Then, make a list of what you can provide and fulfill for them from your letter. You may realize you want something more for your child. Adoptions look different in each case. As a birth mother you have:
- the freedom to choose the parents
- the freedom to choose if you would like to see your child and their parents
- the freedom of privacy to receive pictures but no contact
Each year more than 50,000 American women lovingly place their baby in an adoptive home. This decision is often made by women who first thought abortion was their only way out. Adoption can be a loving option for the birth mother, the baby and the adoptive parents.
