As a caseworker who has done adoptions for over 12 years, I have many birth parents ask why they should choose adoption for their baby. Adoption is a very personal decision, one that is very carefully considered.
A Act of Love Adoption Agency offers adoption counselors to help birth parents explore all their options. If the birth parents choose adoption, A Act of Love is there to help and support them through the entire process.
Adoption has come a long way in the last several years. Birth parents are able to choose the adoptive family and have the option of doing phone calls and meeting them, as well as exchanging correspondence. There are varying degrees of openness, and this can be discussed with an adoption counselor, as well.
Adoptive families go through an extensive process to even be approved for adoption, so birth parents can be assured that the adoptive family they choose will provide a wonderful home for their child.
There are many alternatives to adoption. However, adoption, as emotional as it can be, is a wonderful option. Birth parents have the opportunity to hand pick the home their child will go to. Birth parents have the opportunity to give their child a wonderful and stable life, as well as create stability in their own life. Many times, birth parents have plans to further their schooling, get their GED or get a job. Adoption helps birth parents make steps toward all of these goals. Ultimately, adoption blesses the lives of the birth parents and the adoptive family. As a birth parent, you are giving a gift to the adoptive family; one they can never have on their own. You are an angel.
If you or someone you know is considering adoption, have them call A Act of Love Adoption Agency at 1-800-835-6360 to talk to a caseworker about adoption as an option for them.
