It can be a shock to find out about your unplanned pregnancy. If you know that you are not yet ready to parent your child, then adoption is a wonderful option to consider. First, adoption is a choice made out of love. It’s a way to give your child all that you can by giving them life and choosing another family to raise them. Here are some other benefits offered by local adoption agencies in Colorado and Christian adoption agencies

Choosing Adoption the Right Type of Adoption for Your Baby

1. Adoption allows for more opportunities for your child

It is likely that if you are thinking about adoption, then it might be because you are not financially stable enough to provide for and raise your child. Parenting can be very expensive. In 2022, with rising inflation, it is now estimated that it costs over $300,000 to raise a child to the age of 17. That’s not even to the age of legal adulthood! 

Adoptive families are carefully screened before they are approved to adopt your child. Proof of income ensures that they are able to provide for everyone in their household at the base level and more. Additionally, it is statistically shown that adoptive parents tend to have higher incomes than parents who do not adopt. Adopted children are less likely to live below the poverty line. In addition to financial security, adoptive families have been planning on adoption for quite some time. Therefore, they are financially and emotionally ready to raise a child.  

2. Adoption allows you to keep contact with your child 

The adoption process consists of choosing one kind of adoption: open, semi-open, or closed. Depending on your unique situation, you might choose an open adoption which will allow you to choose the adoptive family and keep direct contact with that family. You will also then be able to arrange contact with your child post-placement. This can vary, but you will very well be able to maintain a relationship with your child. Additionally, an open adoption benefits your child. Adoptees wish to know their birth parents. They wish to know where they came from. This brings them a grander sense of support and understanding of identity. 

3. You may be supported with financial assistance

Adoption is a free process. When you contact Adoption Choices of Colorado, you will create an adoption plan. In the plan, you may qualify for financial assistance, which can help in certain aspects like paying rent or utility bills. This is a life-altering experience you are going through. Caring for your pregnancy and then giving up your child for adoption is emotionally challenging. Therefore, we wish to assist you as much as we can. Financial help is one simple way to alleviate some of your burdens. We also assist with medical care, safe housing, and emotional support. It is important to us that you feel supported. And with our help, we hope to bring you closer to healing. 

4. You can feel at peace with your decision and move on with your life. 

Adoption Choices of Colorado understands how difficult of a decision it is to place your child up for adoption. While you make a hard decision out of love for your child, you are then able to freely move on with your life however you wish. If you want to further your education or career, you can do so with peace of mind as you know that your child is being well-cared for. 

5. The adoptive family is granted their dream of raising a child.

The wait time for adoptive families to adopt a child can be anywhere from 6 months to several years. But that does not include the work prior to acceptance into the local adoption agency. Nor does it include the private conversations and desires before finding Adoption Choices of Colorado. Most commonly, adoptive families adopt due to infertility or pregnancy complications. They are unable to conceive a child of their own. This can be a sorrowful realization. Adoption is their hope and salvation. By choosing adoption for your baby, you are choosing an adoptive family to gratefully and lovingly raise your child as their own.

6. Adoptees are emotionally strong and physically healthy.  

Adoptees are typically healthy, with 85% of adopted children’s health classified as “excellent.” Additionally, 88% of adopted children aged 6 and up show positive social behavior. While more opportunities for your child were brushed upon above, it does seem that adoptees are typically raised in an environment with more parental attention. Adopted children are more likely to be read to or sung to each night. This promotes a nurtured foundation that raises children to feel more self-assured and confident in themselves. Adoptees have shown more interest and likelihood in the engagement of extracurricular activities. Additionally, the majority of adoptees are in some type of open adoption. This may allow them to know and feel loved by both their adoptive family and birth family. 

Is Adoption Right for You and Your Baby?

Adoption may be the next best thing if you cannot parent your child yourself. You can determine the right family who raises your baby. You can choose a family that most resonates with your values if you so desire. Also, adopted children do not have much of a disadvantage when everyone in the situation wants what’s best for them: a supportive and loving home. The most important factor when determining your options for your child is deciding on the most loving option. A Colorado adoption is certainly a loving and hopeful choice.
