… is this even an option for me?
How much do you really know about adoption? Researching your options is a smart step to take. This is a choice that you need to think about carefully. You may be surprised to learn that many women are choosing adoption and are proud about their decision. Some women do not feel ready to parent and see adoption as a choice that benefits everyone involved. If you can’t parent, no matter what the reason, adoption may be the right choice for you.
On that note… the first thing to know about adoption is that a lot has changed over the years, and it may not be what you think it is. The adoption process empowers the birthmother with countless choices. A woman considering this option is able to choose the child’s adoptive family, where they live, how many kids are already in the family, their religious background, their economic level, etc – whatever is important to her. Family options are endless. There are an estimated 2 million families waiting each year to adopt. In most instances, there is no cost to the birthmother. The staff at New Hope Clinic would be glad to help you look into this possibility.
