Feeling Guilt Over Making an Adoption Plan?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on September 27, 2013

Let’s get rid of some old, guilt-trip sayings or “big ideas” surrounding the women who make an adoption plan for their child. These saying s are old-fashioned, hurtful, and just plain untrue…and they go something like this:

  • She doesn’t care or she wouldn’t give her baby away.
  • Adoption is a big secret and she doesn’t know what’s going on.
  • She’ll never forgive herself if she gives her baby away.
  • If she’s old enough to get pregnant, she’s old enough to be a parent.

These comments are NOT true, and people who say these things don’t know about adoption today. Today, we know that for many women, placing their babies and children for adoption is a smart and caring way to provide a lifetime of love and stability in a rock-solid family. If you’re considering adoption for your baby or child, or have already made an adoption plan and have concerns, remember, Lifetime Adoption is just a phone call away: 1-800-923-6784.
