Why Choose Adoption?
Adoption is a wonderful and responsible option for any birth mother experiencing an unexpected pregnancy. There can be a lot of emotions surrounding pregnancy and can leave women feeling worried and helpless. An adoption is an option that you can turn to when you do not know what else to do. There is no shame in choosing adoption. There are a lot of reasons that birth mothers choose adoption every day. Not everyone is in the same situation, so you need to make the decision that best fits you and your current life. You might not be in the best living situation financially or physically. You might also not be mentally capable of raising a child, and that is okay! There is no judgment. Everyone deserves to do what is best for them, especially you.
What Are The Types of Adoption?
As you have many choices when it comes to what you do with you and your child, there are also many choices after choosing the route of adoption. You have a lot of decisions to make at the beginning of your journey to set you up for success in the long term. One of those choices is the type of adoption you wish to have. There are three types of adoption: open, semi-open, and closed. Not one type is right for everyone, and it is up to the comfortability of the birth mother and to find an adoptive family that is compatible with the level of openness. With everything in life, each option has its advantages and disadvantages.
Open adoptions allow for the birth mother to remain in contact with their child and the adoptive family. Semi-open adoptions are very similar to fully open ones, except they are more limited in contact. There might not be as regularly scheduled contact between the birth mother and their child. Closed adoptions are completely different and offer no contact. The birth mother will know nothing about the adoptive family and vice versa. Every family is different, and one option might not be the best for everyone. The level of openness should be decided in the beginning and be mutual between the birth mother and the adoptive family.
