What You Need to Know about Choosing to Place Your Baby for Adoption in Oklahoma
As a birth mother, choosing to place your baby for adoption is one of the hardest decisions you will ever make. When you begin your adoption journey, you are embarking on a journey of love and loss. Therefore, it is completely natural for you to be hesitant when deciding what is best for you and your baby. However, choosing adoption for your baby does not make you weak. It is not the easy way out. Adoption is an emotional process that only the strongest women can endure.
Adoption is a Journey of Loss and Love
In our interview with adoption influencer Ligia Cushman, she notes that adoption begins with a loss. This idea of loss is true for both birth mothers and adoptive families. During the adoption process, birth mothers choose to place their child in the care of another family, which is often a very painful decision that will change their life forever. Likewise, many adoptive families who choose to expand their family via adoption have also endured some type of challenge.
However, adoption is also full of love. If you choose to place your baby for adoption, you are choosing to place their needs above your own, which is the most selfless thing you could do. Choosing to place your baby for adoption does not mean that they are unwanted or unloved. If you choose a semi-open or open adoption, you still have the opportunity to be part of their life. Additionally, we guarantee that your child’s adoptive family will love him or her with their whole heart.
