Making an adoption plan for your baby can be one of the most loving decisions you make for them. It takes lots of love and maturity to realize that raising a child can be difficult. Love is not enough to provide what a child needs to thrive and grow. Parenting can be overwhelming for many people, even if they have the help of family and friends. We often hear from new moms who share that their family and friends were there to help at the beginning but were left on their own when times got more difficult.
No matter what you decide, you may be the main caregiver who will need to take care of your child. Being a single mom can be a sacrifice for many years to come. Some women realize the time is not right for them to become a mom, and adoption is the most practical decision they can make for their child and their future.
