Misconceptions About Oklahoma Birth Fathers

By Karlie Harris

Birth fathers aren’t as bad as television and movies make them out to be. Even if you and the birth father decide to place your baby up for adoption the child will still need a loving family. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma  knows you aren’t going through adoption because you do not love your child. There are some common misconceptions about Oklahoma birth fathers, such as a lot of birth fathers do not want the child. We are going to put some of these rumors to rest, tell you the truth behind the misconceptions, and tell you about some of the resources we offer at Adoption Choices of Oklahoma. Adoption can give you peace of mind, it is a long process, but we want everyone to be happy in the end. We want to be instrumental in helping to achieve the best opportunity for you and your child.

Birth Fathers and Adoption

If you have become pregnant, and you have not told the birth father, then do not jump to conclusions.

  • Not all birth fathers are going to walk away and leave you to make the decision alone. Some men may decide that abortion is the best option, but through adoption, everyone is taken care of. The baby goes to a safe, caring home and the birth parents do not have to worry.
  • Another misconception is that a lot of birth fathers are teenagers who cannot support a family. According to the CDC, the percentage of birth father’s aged between 15-44 was lower in the 2,000s.
  • Next, both the birth mother and birth father are involved in the adoption process. They are both making the decision to place their child with a loving family that wants the baby and can provide for the baby in a happy healthy environment.
  • Birth fathers are uninterested in being in the baby’s life after adoption. There are some birth mothers and fathers who want to stay in contact with their baby after the birth, this is acceptable if the adoption is open.
  • It is common for people to think that the birth father is not as important as the birth mother, but the baby is as much a part of the father as the mother.

Having a baby is financially and emotionally taxing on the birth father just as much as the birth mother. Adoption for your baby is not just up to the birth mother, it should involve the birth father as well.
