Adoption From A Birth Mom’s Perspective
One question I get asked a lot is why did I choose an adoption plan for my child? Let me first say that it is not an easy decision and I went back and forth a lot. What it ultimately came down to for me was, could I provide everything my child deserved? No, at seventeen I could barely take care of myself let alone a child.
I wanted him to have the best chance of a future with two parents that loved him and knew that he would have the best chance of that if I chose an adoption plan.
This gut wrenching choice does not come without consequences, but most adoption agencies provide counseling for the months and I was better prepared because of it.
