As a teenager or young adult, most women do not want to disappoint their parents, especially their mother. Telling your mom you are pregnant is probably one of the hardest things to do. But, the longer you wait, the more agony you will be in. It is like carrying around a 50 pound backpack that only gets heavier each day.
Let the counselors at Act of Love Adoptions help make that weight easier to carry and find a support group that you can count on 24/7.
The best thing to do is to tell your mom about the pregnancy right away and relieve yourself of carrying that burden alone.
*One young teen waited until she was in labor to tell her mom. Her mom was shocked. She had no clue her daughter was pregnant and then had to spring to action to get her to the hospital. The mother did her best to keep her emotions in check as they raced to the hospital and were admitted into labor and delivery. The baby was born the next day with the teen’s mother right by her side. Her mother was loving and kind as she talked with her daughter about her plan. The daughter told her mother that she felt adoption was the best plan, as she needed to finish high school and continue her education by going to college. They chose adoption and knew they were not prepared to bring a baby home.
Together, at the hospital, they called a Act of Love. They met with the agency staff and elected to search for an adoptive family that wanted an open adoption. Together, they selected a family that they felt was perfect for their little angel.
Meeting the adoptive family brought about a wide range of emotions throughout the three day hospital stay. They held each other, they cried together, they laughed together, they sat on the hospital bed together and snuggled the baby. The support of the adoptive family, the agency staff and her mother helped her to stay strong.
The mother told her daughter she wished she would have come to her sooner and confided in her about the pregnancy. The daughter said she wished she could have and if she had known her mother would be so loving and supportive, she would have.
