I’m a Pregnant Middle-Aged Woman. Is Adoption Still an Option?
Yes, adoption is an option for you. You may feel judged for your decision to give your child up for adoption. There is a stigma that if you are an older adult that you should take on the responsibility of a child. The truth is you don’t have to, and it shouldn’t be frowned upon. Having a child is a big decision for anyone at any age. If you had an unexpected pregnancy and didn’t feel that being a mother was right for you, it’s okay. Your feelings and decisions are important for you to live your life. Adoption is a way for you to provide your unborn child with a family that will love and cares for them.
Can I Still Place My Unborn Up For Adoption, Even if I Have Kids?
You may be a mother. Your kids are the joy of your life. You love them unconditionally and are a fantastic parent. However, life happens. It can change how you think and feel. Based on your value, life, and family situation, keeping your child isn’t your best option. You may hear that because you are already an experienced mother with kids, you must keep your child. However, everyone’s values and lives are different. Only you know what’s good for you. You may not want more kids, or you don’t have the finances to raise another child. But that doesn’t make you a bad person. Kids or no kids, adoption is always an option to consider.
The Benefits of Choosing Adoption
You will be working with a birth counselor and creating a plan to determine your adoption plan and who you want to choose as the adoptive family.
Open adoption is: You and the adoptive parents share all your personal information. Information that is medical, their address, their background, and personal life.
Closed adoption is: All rights are given to the adoptive parents once the birth mother signs all legal documents. There is no contact, or any information exchanged between the adoptive and birth parents. Everything is confidential.
Semi-open adoption is when both the birth mother and adoptive parents decide to keep minimal contact through their adoption agency. An adoption agent or case manager will monitor communication like emails, letters, pictures, and conference calls. There is no exchange of personal information unless the adoptive parents request it on behalf of the child or if there is a medical emergency. All requests must be given to the adoption agent and relayed back to the birth mother.
No matter what age you are, young or old, adoption is an opportunity to put your child in the best care. We make sure our birth mothers create a plan that fits their circumstances. There are many women like you who are nervous and scared about this unexpected pregnancy. Just know that adoption is a plan open to everyone of all ages who need it.
