Is Adoption for Me?

Maybe you don’t feel ready or able to raise your baby?

Maybe you’re young, and you just can’t see yourself as a mother right now?

Maybe your relationship with the baby’s father is not at a place where you want to start a family together?

Maybe you feel you cannot afford this baby?

Maybe you’ve got enough to deal with already, like work, school, or other obligations?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, than I have GOOD NEWS for you:

Adoption just might be the choice for you!

Adoption is one of the most SELFLESS decisions a woman can make and a choice made out of LOVE!

Today, expectant mothers can be included in all aspects of creating their own adoption plan.  If you decide to purse adoption for your baby, you will be allowed to customize the plan that fits you best.

When working with an adoption professional, you are in control of creating a plan that makes you comfortable.  You will receive support and information to help you each step of the way.

There are many organizations and individuals who are willing to assist you in this important decision.  Take time to contact them and ask for their help in making a plan that works for you.

Fatherhood

Being a good father doesn’t start after your baby is born–supporting your partner during pregnancy gets everything off to a good start.  Some men feel left out when their partner is pregnant but both you and your partner are becoming parents together.  Dads-to-be can play an important role in their partner’s pregnancy.  Here’s a few ways:

-Go to prenatal appointments.

-Ask questions.

-Help your partner stick to a well-balanced, nutritious diet.

-Take walks together.

-Go to childbirth and parenting classes with your partner.

-Feel the baby kick.

-Find a pediatrician for your baby.

-Stop smoking and don’t smoke around mom.  Help mom quit if she smokes.

-Prepare your home for the baby.

Once your baby is home, understand that parenting will take some getting used to.  Your baby depends on you completely, and you will probably have a lot of questions about how to recognize and meet your baby’s needs.  The secret is to be easy on yourself and each other.  New mothers and fathers both have a lot to learn.
