Are You Considering Adoption?
A Act of Love is a UT adoption agency
that provides birth parents, considering adoption, with information and options to make the best decision for themselves and more importantly, for their baby. The decision to place a baby for adoption is one of the most difficult things a mother may ever have to do. It's difficult for various reasons but the benefits to both the birth mom and the baby can be extraordinary.
A birth mom could decide to place her baby for adoption for several different reasons and there is not a single one that is "bad". It's sad and shows ignorance when people think that because a woman doesn't parent her baby that she is "irresponsible", "childish", or even "selfish" because that is simply not the case! In fact, some of the most unselfish people in this world are probably those parents who choose to place their child up for adoption. They may understand that in their specific situation, adoption is best for their baby--even though they wish that things were very different so that they were able to keep and parent their baby.
Birth moms decide to put their child up for adoption for many different reasons which including:
- Family - Many birth mothers feel that they won't be able to provide their baby will all that he/she deserves. Raising a child, possibly as a single mom, is an extremely difficult and also a very expensive task. Other birth moms may know that the father will not be involved and they think that their child deserves to have a father figure in their life. These are legitimate concerns for birth moms. They need to feel confident in their ability to raise their child and feel good about the way that they'll do it. A Act of Love is a Salt Lake adoption agency that has a 24 hour hotline available for all birth moms and they can also send you a free information packet if requested.
- Age and Other Circumstances - Teenage pregnancy makes it more difficult for you as a mother. It can make the relationship with your child's father more complicated; school becomes an afterthought; and having/keeping a job is more stressful and difficult. A Act of Love will help you with counseling in making this very important decision and help you think through the options so that you can make an informed decision.
- Selflessness - You may realize that you're not ready to be the mother that you feel your baby will need. You want to give your child every chance to succeed and be happy, which could mean placing him/her with a family that is ready, financially stable, wanting, and waiting for their chance to be parents. It is truly a selfless act to place your child with a loving adoptive family. You can provide a giant blessing or even a miracle in the lives of a couple who may be unable to bear children.
