…Why choose adoption?

Adoption is Rewarding: Though it may be difficult at first, most women who have placed their child with adoptive parents have found they have no feelings of overwhelming regret. The majority of birth parents find it rewarding to see and know that the child is with loving parents who can provide for the child in a way the birth parents could not.

 

Adoption is Free: Reputable adoption agencies and attorneys will work to provide for the personal needs of the birth parents throughout the adoption process. Depending on the agency, attorney, and the adoption process, birth parents pay next to nothing for the adoption and medical costs that are incurred during the pregnancy and after the birth of the baby.

 

Adoption is Easy: Adoption can be a simple process for birth parents depending on what adoption agency or attorney they choose. Birth parents should be comfortably guided by the adoption agency or attorney during the adoption process, and should be made aware throughout the adoption process of what will be expected after placement. Reputable adoption agencies and attorneys work hard to make sure the birth parents are completely confident in their decision.

 

Adoption is Safe: Not only does a woman avoid the emotional and physical complications during an abortion procedure, the choice of adoption is safe for the birth mother and the baby.

 

Adoption is Confidential: Reliable adoption agencies and attorneys keep a birth parent’s identity and their choices legally and respectfully confidential throughout the adoption process and beyond placement of the child.
