Choosing Adoption in an Abusive Relationship in Colorado
If you are in an unhealthy relationship or you know of someone who is in an unhealthy relationship, it is important to know that you have options to make the situation better. One of these options is adoption, and our staff here at Adoption Choices of Colorado is ready to help. It does not matter what type of abuse you are receiving. Any type of mistreatment or abuse to you is wrong. It is okay to feel afraid to reach out for help, but it is important to know that reaching out for help is the right thing to do in order to protect you and your unborn baby.
First, You Want To Acknowledge You Are In An Abusive Relationship
The first step towards getting out of your relationship if you are being mistreated is to identify what makes your relationship abusive. It could be because of a number of things or just a single thing. Does your spouse hurt you physically or emotionally in any way? Does your spouse blame you or someone else for things that are not in your control? Has your partner ever tried to minimize physical or emotional violence? Does your partner make you nervous about your safety and your unborn baby’s safety?
The Next Step Is To Reach Out For Help
If you said yes to any of the reasons listed above, then your next step is to reach out for help. Here at Adoption Choices of Colorado, we know that you might feel afraid to reach out for help. It is important for you to know that there are people out there who want to help you. Another thing you want to do is remove yourself from the unsafe environment as soon as you can—unfortunately, any forms of mistreatment or abuse start or increase during pregnancy. We want you to be in a comfortable environment where you feel safe, and your unborn baby is safe.
How Adoption Choices of Colorado Can Help You
If you decide to work with us on your Denver adoption journey, we can help you in a number of ways. Here at Adoption Choices of Colorado, it is our mission to make sure you have a smooth and rewarding adoption process. If you are having a hard time finding a safe environment where you and your unborn baby can be safe, we are happy to help. We will help you find an affordable and safe place for you to live during your pregnant adoption process. When it comes to the adoption plan, you can proceed with or without the birth father’s support depending on your situation and what you think is best. We want you to do what is best for you, and we will not deny your wishes if you want to make your adoption plan without the birth father involved. If you are struggling financially because of your situation as well, we can help you with groceries and help you find an affordable, caring doctor. We can also help you with transportation to and from your appointments during your pregnancy.
Another thing that we provide to you and other birth mothers that work with us is free counseling. We offer free counseling because we know that you are going through a difficult time with the adoption process, and your abuse situation can be stressful. We want you to have a safe place where you can talk about your feelings on the adoption process, your feelings about your situation regarding abuse, and where you can ask any questions that you may have.
What Happened To You Is Not Your Fault
Going through the adoption process and dealing with your situation is not an easy thing to do. It is important to know that you are not going through this alone and that none of the things that have happened to you is your fault. You did nothing wrong to cause your relationship to play out the way it has or did, and there are people willing to help you. Adoption Choices of Colorado is here for you, and we will do our best to help you and support you in any way that we can.
