3 Unique Advantages for Adoptees in Oklahoma

We like to ensure a healthy pregnancy by doing all the heavy lifting when it comes to your adoption journey. If you are experiencing an unexpected pregnancy, we can help with that. We can alleviate your stress and answer any questions you might have to put your mind at ease. Adoption can be scary and hard for some birth mothers, but we hope to make it a little easier for you. We realize this can be difficult for some women, and that is nothing to be ashamed of. Unwanted pregnancies are scary and are a very emotional time.
You might be worried about your baby and how their life will end up, and that is understandable. Every birth mother is concerned for their child’s wellbeing. However, just know that adoption is a loving and selfless option any birth mother can make on behalf of their child. You are putting your child up for adoption because you know that your child deserves a better life than the one you can give, and that is a noble reason. There are many benefits and many advantages for your child being adopted. Let’s talk about a few of those.
- Endless Amount of OpportunitiesAs an adoptee, your child is being placed in the care of a family that is able to live well above their means and give a child more than they need. It is most likely that your child is being placed in a financially stable family. They will be given an endless amount of opportunities to achieve their goals and exceed expectations. Adoptees are more likely to experience new and different things than others and have the opportunity to live comfortably.
- Live a Healthier LifestyleIf you are giving your baby up for adoption, it is most likely because you cannot give your child everything they need and more. It is possible you are not in a healthy situation yourself, so you are choosing for your child to live in a healthy and stable environment. No matter what, your child will grow up surrounded by people who love and cherish them. Their adoptive family will give them an unconditional amount of love and support that will increase your child’s overall mental health leading to a healthier lifestyle.
- A Large FamilyA different type of advantage for adoptees, and sometimes not the case, is having a large family. We are not talking about the adoptive family having so many people in their family, but having two sets of parents — birth and adoptive. In open and semi-open adoptions, an adoptee has two families that love and cherish them. Their birth family did what they did out of love and want to still be in their child’s lives. Their adoptive family chose them to love and to support them for the rest of their lives. It is a very beautiful and powerful thing to have. An adoptee has many supporters and many sides to turn to if they need advice, support, or help of any kind.
It might seem scary thinking about going through the adoption process, and some birth mothers might feel guilty about giving up their child. However, we want you to know that you are not giving up rather sacrificing your own wellbeing for your child. They will know forever that their birth mother did what they did in their best interest of them. It is a selfless act and a loving one at that. So do not ever feel guilty for making this decision because you are not any less of a mother for putting your child up for adoption.
