Facts About Adoption

  • Adoption is NOT foster care, and does not involve the state process of orphan care. Adoption through a private agency that you choose gives you the control over who raises your child.
  • Talking with an adoption agency has “no strings attached” and you are under no obligation to complete an adoption plan. If you meet with a birth mother counselor, you will not be pressured to make any decision.
  • In considering adoption, there are varying levels of openness you can choose with your adopting family. You create the type of adoption plan that is right for you.
  • A counselor will be there for you throughout the entire process, even after placement.
  • In NC a birth mother has 7 days to change her mind after completing paperwork. No paperwork has to be signed until 48hrs after birth.

3 Questions to Consider

1. You may ask, “Why should I consider adoption for my baby and me?”

You may not be prepared or ready to be a parent, but you can still give your child the greatest gift, the gift of life, through adoption. It may be a difficult decision to make, but it may also be the most loving thing you can do for your son or daughter. Adoption is the life-giving alternative to abortion. If you cannot take care of your child, give them a chance to live with someone who is prepared to take care of them as their own son or daughter. Your child deserves a chance at a happy life!

2. You may feel, “I need to take responsibility for my own actions.” 

Evaluating the choices for your pregnancy and child is wise. There are many things to consider: finances, the baby’s father, and your long-term chances for successful parenting. A good mother makes a plan for her child, even if it means she is not the one to care for her child’s needs. Adoption is taking responsibility by making a long-term plan for you and your child. It may be the best plan for you and your baby based on your circumstances.

3. You may think, “My family would never let me place my baby for adoption.”

Adoption is an idea some family members may never fully adjust to, but let your choice be based on the best care for your child. Can you meet your child’s needs based on your current circumstances? Does your family provide a healthy support structure that would enable you to raise your child successfully? This is your decision to make, and the way your family has always done it does not have to be your choice. Caring for your baby is your responsibility, so make the choices that will be best for him or her. Adoption may be the best way to care for your baby.
