Adoption Myth #2: Adoption is an “unbearable sacrifice”

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on January 14, 2014

Adoption is an unselfish choice of putting your child’s needs above your own. It can be difficult and is a loss, but the choices you make as create your customized adoption plan will help you now and in the future.

Curt Young says in his book, The Missing Piece, that “Adoption is a sacrifice but not an unbearable one, if the birth mother has good support during her pregnancy and chooses adoption for the right reasons.” He goes into a discussion of “right reasons”, defining them as the free choice of the birth mother rather than being pressured into it by family or friends.
