Reasons for Placing a Baby for Adoption

March 09, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 171

Why would someone place their child for adoption? What should you be thinking about if you must decide whether to raise your child or place your child for adoption?

Financial Concerns

  • How will you provide a home for yourself and your child?
  • Do you know how much it costs for rent, utilities, transportation, food, clothing, diapers? If not, find someone who can help you write a realistic budget for everything you will need to pay for every month.
  • Will you have a job that earns you enough money to live on?
  • How stable is your job?
  • Do you have a back up plan if you lose your job?
  • Will you have to take a second job to make ends meet?
  • Who will care for the baby while you are at work? How much will that cost?
  • How will you get your child to the babysitter's?
  • Can you expect financial support from the baby's father or your parents?

What's Best For You?

  • What do you want your life to be like?
  • Do you want to be a mom right now?
  • Are you throwing away plans to attend college and make a better life for yourself because a baby is on the way?
  • What do you want your life to look like in five years? Ten years?
  • How will caring for a baby 24/7 impact your life?
  • Will you have time to work, go to school, date, hang out with friends, relax -- and care for a baby?
  • How much help in caring for the baby can you realistically expect from your parents? The baby's father? Your friends?

What's Best for Your Baby?

  • How will your financial struggles affect your baby?
  • Will you have the time and the desire to give your child the attention he needs to be well-adjusted and happy?
  • Is the life you can give him right now the life you want him to have?
  • What kind of life do you want your child to have?
  • Do you need to break a cycle of abuse that affected you as a child?
  • Will your child thank you for making the best possible decision for him?

If you are pregnant and thinking about what is best for you and your child, you are already on the right track to making a good decision for you both.
