There are many emotions that come with an unplanned pregnancy. You may be feeling a combination of emotions such as fear, excitement, panic and the “what am I going to do” feeling. Here at Connections, we want to talk to you about your thoughts, feelings and answer questions you may have about adoption and the adoption process.
We know there are many choices you face with an unplanned pregnancy and we are here to discuss all of those options. We have an experienced adoption staff that answers the phone 24/7. Call 1-800-450-7191 and your call is confidential – give only as much information as you are comfortable and we will still answer your questions about adoption.
You may have the phrase “I’m actually considering giving up my baby for adoption” in your head. Here at Connections, we believe you are actually giving your baby opportunity and stability while he or she will be equally loved by adoptive parents as you love this baby. “Giving up my baby for adoption” sounds like you are giving up but you are not- placing you child for adoption is the most selfless act a mother can do for their baby. Your baby will be loved and birth parents are cherished for their gift.
There are many types of adoption plans and adoption does not have to be a final goodbye. If you choose, you may receive pictures, updates and contact from the adoptive parents you have chosen on a periodic basis so you can still remind your child from time to time of your love.
That is the basic premise of the most popular types of adoption – open or semi-open adoption. However, one of these may not be the adoption plan you feel is best for your and your child, then you may still choose a closed adoption. The decision is yours.
At Connections, the adoption plan is created by the birthmother and supported by us and the potential adoptive family she has chosen.
There is a choice…
