The upside of placing for adoption
Adoption is often overlooked by women facing unexpected pregnancies. It can give you a chance to take what feels like a crisis and turn it into a unique opportunity to help another family. At Helping Hands PRC, we want to give you the most accurate information so you can make the best decision for your situation.
Is Adoption Right for Me?
If you are not sure where to start, there are a few common reasons women have chosen adoption for their unplanned pregnancy:
- She wants to focus on school or her career.
- She is not ready to be a parent.
- She is not in a safe or stable situation for a child.
- She wants help with the cost of pregnancy and delivery.
- Parenting and abortion are not the right choices for her.
No matter your reason for choosing adoption, it is valid. We want to support you through your decision-making process. At Helping Hands, we are here to discuss adoption and if it is right for you.
How Does Adoption Work?
Adoption does not always look the same. Depending on your preferences, your adoption plan can be adjusted to find a solution that works for you and the adopting family.
Open adoption is an arrangement where you can have some sort of contact with the adoptive family and your child. This communication level can vary between visits and regular communication to only providing your name and contact information. These arrangements can be adjusted to fit your comfort level.
Closed adoption does not allow for any contact between you and the adoptive family. This can be the right choice for you if you want to move on from this time in your life. The lack of contact can help those who need that separation.
