Adoption Offers Positive Options
Your Baby is WantedAdoption can be an excellent solution to an unplanned pregnancy. It is a welcome alternative to raising a child a woman feels unprepared to raise, or to ending the life of that child before birth. According to the National Committee for Adoption, there are 1.5 million American couples wanting to adopt children. Yet each year, while 1.6 million abortions take place, only 50,000 new children are made available for adoption. For every couple that adopts, another 40 wait in line. There are even groups of prospective adoptive parents who specifically want to adopt disabled or special needs children.
Adoption is a Gift
Adoption is a very special gift. It is the gift of life to both the baby and the couple who will love and raise the child. Unfortunately, many mothers won’t consider adoption because they can’t imagine giving their baby away, yet they are unable to be a single parent and marriage to the father is not a feasible option. In many instances, women don’t choose adoption out of fear or embarrassment.

Choose the Parents
Adoption is conducted very differently now than in years past. Today the birth mother is respected and empowered. She chooses the parents she wants for her child from resumes and interviews. The birth families and adoptive families get to know each other and often become friends during the pregnancy. Any degree of openness after the baby is born that is mutually agreed upon can be arranged.
