Q: “How do I give my baby up for adoption?”

A: Adoption is not giving up on a child. It’s a selfless act of love for the child.

One of the questions that we often hear from individuals facing an unplanned pregnancy is “how do I give my baby up for adoption?” When an expectant mother is considering adoption for their child, it is much more than just how to “give baby up for adoption“. It means making an adoption plan for her child, and it means a lot of courage and incredible sacrifice on her part. By reading and selecting approved adoptive family profiles, expectant parents are able to review potential adoptive parents who are ready, willing and able to adopt a child. By selecting a family, the pregnant woman/couple is in control of who will adopt the baby. She is not “giving up her baby”, she is choosing a life she dreams for her baby.
