All the Names Women Considering Adoption in Oklahoma Have Been Called
Adoption is the process in which a woman, or a girl, facing an unplanned pregnancy places her child in the care of another family, i.e., the adoptive family. Adoption agencies like Adoption Choices of Oklahoma are in place to make the adoption process easier for these young women and girls considering adoption in Oklahoma. We can connect them to potential adoptive families, and depending on their circumstances, and we can provide medical and financial assistance.
Who are the Women and Girls who are Considering Adoption?
The pregnant women and girls who seek adoption for their children are commonly known as birth moms or birth mothers. Anyone can become a birth mother regardless of age, race, social class, or status. There are teen birth mothers or teen birth moms, women who become pregnant and place their children for adoption as teenagers. Most birth mothers, however, are in their twenties or thirties.
Biological mother is another term people use to describe the women and girls who place their children for adoption. They are the child’s “biological mother” or “biological mom” because they are genetically related to the child.
Even though they are related to the child, they don’t act like a mother to said child (not in the traditional sense, at least). An adoptee (a child who was placed for adoption) doesn’t live with his or her biological mother. Depending on the adoption plan – open adoption, semi-open adoption, or closed adoption – he or she may not see his or her biological mother often, if at all.
Why Do Women and Girls Seek Adoption?
Sometimes a woman or girl who chooses adoption for her child is called the child’s first mother. She was present at the very start of the child’s life. She conceived, carried, and delivered the child. She made the decision to find a loving family for the child.
Contrary to popular belief, placing a child for adoption is a very difficult decision that requires a tremendous amount of strength and selflessness. It’s a decision that requires a tremendous amount of motherly love for the child.
Women and girls who choose adoption want what’s best for their children. If a birth mother doesn’t have the resources nor the finances necessary to care for her child, adoption is the best way to give her child a stable life.
