Thousands of American families are created every year through adoption, and the benefits of adoption affect everyone involved:
Every day, women like you choose adoption. They understand the benefits of adoption for children and want the best for them. And in many cases, the benefits of open adoption have led to ongoing relationships between them and their children.
Today, adoption is a beneficial option for a pregnant woman as she will incur little to no medical and legal expenses and will often have assistance with her bills during her pregnancy. No matter the stage of a woman's pregnancy, adoption is always an option.
An Adoption Specialist can help you find the perfect adoptive family that will make these benefits a reality. Please call 1-800-ADOPTION to speak with an Adoption Specialist, or click here to request free adoption information.
Those who work at American Adoptions are able to see the advantages of adoption for themselves every day, but women facing an unplanned pregnancy are often unaware of these advantages. Research and statistics prove that adoption has many advantages for pregnant women, the children they place for adoption and the adoptive families who are eternally grateful for the opportunity to become parents.
From talk shows to books and even casual conversation amongst friends, the term "give up" has unfortunately become synonymous with adoption. Birth mothers are often referred to as women who chose to "give up" their babies for adoption. However, if American society stopped to think about what we were really saying, we would realize that it couldn't be further from the truth.
Instead of being shrouded in secrecy, today's adoptions are an open process in which birth parents, adoptive parents and the child embrace their relationship to one another.
Unplanned pregnancy options for women have changed dramatically over the past few decades. While abortion, parenting or adoption have long been unplanned pregnancy options, only more recently has a woman been able to truly make her own choice for an unplanned pregnancy.

We work with thousands of women each year facing an unplanned pregnancy and offer assistance to women in need. Our large, caring staff is able to assist you 7 days a week and provide you with one-on-one counseling about your pregnancy and the options available to you.
You can share however much or little information about yourself as you feel comfortable sharing. The adoptive family will know your first name, your last name (but only once the child is placed in their care), your medical history and the state that you live in.
This is a question that can only be answered by the individual family. Each family has their own style of how to introduce the adoption to the child. When you are matched with your adoptive family, you can ask this question to them. If you would like your Adoption Specialist to discuss it with them for you, just let her know.
While not every woman who chooses adoption is a young mother, many are. Through adoption, many young women have found an ability to give their babies the best life possible, while finding the opportunity to realize their own dreams, as well. Call American Adoptions today at 1-800-ADOPTION.
