People are often curious about the entire process of adoption and what it must feel like. There really is no one way to describe it correctly; it is a blend of hundreds of colliding emotions and thoughts. It goes without saying that this is no easy task for a birthmother, who does eventually decide to go down this route for the greater good of her child; on the other hand, it also does not mean that it has to be a tiring or excruciating experience.
With the help of experienced and professional adoption agencies like A Act of Love, women can now make the transition from pregnancy to adoption under proper guidance and with ample support. The adoptive process may seem like a mountain that cannot be conquered, but you would be surprised to learn as to how comfortable your counselors can make you feel.
Never once will you feel like you had to go through it all by yourself, as you will have people right beside you consistently and constantly. Whenever you have any questions, fears or concerns, you will know exactly who to contact and you can trust their response to be in you and your baby’s best interests. So much so that when the papers are signed and all has been completed, you will begin to see these counselors as no less than your own family members. Just last week, a year after I placed my son, I had an amazing brunch with some of the employees at Act of Love who have become my friends and family. We caught up with each other and marveled at the difference a year can make. You form a bond based entirely on trust with them which will make the adoptive process a lot less daunting than it would seem otherwise.
I never have to worry about confidentiality being a problem which takes away a major chunk of the stress away from my head, leaving me free to concentrate on the important things, like moving forward.
