You may have heard it said that “Adoption is an Act of Love” and it truly is. Choosing adoption for your baby is the exact opposite of giving up a baby for adoption. It simply is not giving up but purposely choosing to love your child and to put your child’s needs above your own. True love is unselfish and requires courage. Adoption brings love into the lives of everyone it touches. A child who is adopted is connected to two families by love.

When pregnant and choosing adoption you are your child’s very first teacher about love and the sacrifices of motherly love. When you make a plan to place your child for adoption you can carefully select the adoptive family. You can build a connection with your chosen family during your pregnancy and get to know them if that is what you want to do. You can get together by phone, zoom, and in-person to talk about what you envision for your future relationship together. Forming these relationships take time and communication but together you can form a bond built on love and trust that will benefit everyone and especially your child. In an open adoption, your child will know about your love and will get to experience the love you have for them.
Many folks who do not understand the complexities of adoption often treat the birth parent as unloving. As mentioned before, true love is unselfish. It can also push us to make difficult decisions and process the emotions associated with them. You are loving to yourself with the choice because you acknowledge that your love is to be expressed differently than others.
You are loving to the child in your decision. Wanting the absolute best for a child is the truest form of love. It is also an expression of love within your community. A couple who desires a child in their life and has chosen to adopt is a couple bursting at the seams with love to share. You find that right fit and you are telling them “I love you enough to love this child”. You are giving them the stamp of approval and the best opportunity that they could possibly have in their life.
