Isn’t Adoption Giving Up Your Baby?

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on September 19, 2014

Question: I am trying to decide between parenting my daughter or doing adoption. But, how can I ever give up my baby for adoption?

Answer: Adoption isn’t giving up your baby-it’s giving your child a life that you want for her. Think about what you want for your daughter and what’s best for her.

If you decide you’re not ready or able to provide your daughter with the kind of life you want for her, you can still provide for your baby, but in another way: through adoption.

Some choose adoption for their baby or child because they want to give them both a mom and dad, as well as security. Others do adoption because they’re waiting until they’re married before parenting.

You’re the best person to choose what’s best for your baby and yourself. It sounds like you’re already thinking carefully about what you want for the future-that’s what good parents do! If you have questions about adoption and how it works, call Lifetime Adoption at 1-800-923-6784.
