Single-parent adoption is when an unmarried individual chooses to adopt a child. As a birth mother, you’ll have to decide if you want your child to be raised by a married couple or a single individual. Single adoptive parents usually choose international adoption because it’s easier for them to find a child to adopt. Many birth mothers who go through private domestic adoption seek out couples rather than unmarried individuals.
Adoption Choices of Oklahoma does private-domestic adoptions. If you’re open to working with one adoptive parent, we can assist you. If you’re interested in single-parent adoption, you’ll have to choose between a male adoptive parent and a female adoptive parent.
Reasons Why a Single Woman May Choose to Adopt
A woman may choose to adopt if she wants children but can’t get pregnant. She may lack a partner to conceive a child with, or she may have infertility troubles.
Some women don’t want to get married but, at the same time, don’t want to miss out on motherhood. Other women are interested in marriage but don’t want to wait to have children.
Some women simply want to provide a loving home for a child in need.
Why a Single Woman Might Be a Good Fit for You
There’s a lot to consider when choosing an adoptive parent for your child. Different birth mothers choose certain birth families for different reasons. When creating your adoption plan, you should think about what your child needs. If you’re interested in single-parent adoption with an unmarried woman as the adoptive parent, you should think about what that woman has to offer.
Here’s what you should look for when considering single-parent adoption with an unmarried woman.
- Values and Interests
A single woman might be a good fit if she has values that are similar to yours. Maybe she practices the religion you practice. Maybe her hobbies and interests mirror your hobbies and interests.
- Financial Stability
Every birth mother wants to find someone who can give her child a comfortable life. If a woman is successful and financially well-off, you’ll know that she can provide for your child. You’ll know that she can supply nutritious food and give your child an education.
- Community and Environment
When choosing an adoptive family, some birth mothers consider the adoptive parent’s lifestyle and environment. Does the adoptive parent have a loving, supporting family? What types of friends does she have? Where does the adoptive parent live? When you meet your adoptive parent, you should take the time to learn as much about her life as possible.
Should I Consider Single-Parent Adoption for My Baby?
Single-parent adoption isn’t for everyone. Some birth mothers believe growing up in a two-parent household is important. You’ll have to decide where you stand before you commit to single-parent adoption. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma can help you figure that out.
