Posted by Lifetime Adoption on October 28, 2016

Some people wonder “how could a woman ever give away her baby?!” The truth is, adoption isn’t giving up, it’s giving your baby a better life than you can provide right now. Check out this video about the common reasons why women choose adoption:


Why Do Women Choose Adoption?

I realized, and so did my baby’s father, that we just weren’t mature enough or ready to be parents. We made an open adoption plan and chose the parents for our son. He’s now a happy six-year-old boy, and we get updates on him through Facebook and visit once a year."

There are tons of reasons why women choose adoption, such as no support from the baby’s father, a jail sentence, college or career plans, involvement with CPS, rape, or the wish for a stable two parent family for her child.
