Giving Baby Up for Adoption
Giving a baby up for adoption is one of the most difficult decisions you can make as a parent. It’s also one of the most selfless, because you are giving your baby a chance at a better life. Whether you are considering placing an unborn child for adoption or putting an older child up for adoption, know that you are not "giving up" — you are giving life.
In the articles below, you will learn more about giving a baby up for adoption with American Adoptions, no matter what stage of pregnancy you are in or how old your child is.
As you read these articles and others on our site, you will find that our online resources frequently use the term “give up for adoption.” In no way does this mean that our adoption specialists prefer or even use this term for expectant mothers considering adoption. Instead, we use this term because many of the women who come to our agency have no experience in adoption and, therefore, use this term as one of the only phrases they have ever heard themselves. To meet them at their knowledge of the adoption process, we use this common term, and then work to educate them about the advantages and realities of placing a child for adoption.
If you have more questions about “giving your baby up” for adoption, our adoption specialists are here to help. Call us any time, 24/7, at 1-800-ADOPTION to get free information and support.
