Religious Views on "Giving Up" Your Child for Adoption
When you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, deciding on the path that’s best for you and your baby is rarely easy. And when you factor in religious views on “giving up” your child for adoption, it can seem even more stressful and confusing – especially if you’re concerned that choosing adoption will be considered wrong or shameful in your religious community.
Know this: Whatever your religious beliefs, you are not “giving up” by choosing adoption, and you are the only person who can decide whether placing your baby for adoption is right for you. It is always up to you to determine whether an adoption plan fits with your personal religious beliefs and principles.
At American Adoptions, we believe that adoption can be a brave and beautiful choice that benefits everyone involved. We welcome women of all faiths to our adoption agency and can help you make an adoption plan that you are comfortable with and that is respectful of and sensitive to your religious beliefs.
