The Misconception of Putting Your Baby up for Adoption
Or other focal points so adoptive families could assess them and decide if the child was the right fit. A completely horrific picture of adoption and completely unlike anything that entails adoption today, but for some reason, people still use the term, putting your baby up for adoption.
The Adoption Process Today
In the world of adoption today, birth parents make the choice to choose adoption for themselves and their baby. The birth mother and birth father decide who they want to raise their child by looking through profiles of adoptive families who have been carefully screened by the adoption agency. We have a list of Waiting Families, people who are ready and willing to parent a child. In today’s world, a child would never be put up to auction. Today, an adoption plan is made by the birth mother and father, with the help of their adoption counselor and oftentimes, the adoption is open, allowing the biological parents and the adoptive family to have contact with one another. Basically, the entire process is dictated by the birth mother and her needs and what she feels is right for her and her child. It is no way “giving up your baby” or “putting up your baby. Choosing adoption is one of the most selfless choices you can make for your baby. By choosing adoption, you are choosing to make a carefully considered plan for your baby’s life. Your pregnancy may be unplanned, but the plan for your baby’s future is thoroughly thought out. By considering adoption, you are putting your child above everything else. You are deciding that the life they will have with an adoptive family is a life you cannot provide them at this time. This decision is incredibly powerful, selfless and the complete opposite of giving up.
