Choosing Joy and Embracing the New Year after Adoption
By Bruce Kong
If December and January are known for anything besides the holidays, it’s that starting a brand new outlook on life plays a key role too.
When you finalized your Colorado Adoption, we can’t help but notice you struggling with loneliness. But maybe you don’t have to work with that. When you came to Adoption Choices of Colorado or a Denver Adoption Agency, we promised to walk you through every aspect of the Adoption Process, including the ending.
There is nothing worst than a birth mother who is Pregnant and considering adoption and feels like she has to struggle alone. You have done a selfless act and deserve nothing but support and a loving community.
We’re here to let you know that there is help, and if you have ever considered planning for a family in the future, it is never too late. Your life matters, and there’s nothing that will ever counter that.
But first, take time for grief; it is an integral part of the Adoption Process. One thing that birth mothers avoid after an Adoption in Colorado is the grieving process. The world has condemned grief as a stigma that does not belong, but that’s where we’re proven wrong.
Grief allows you to process and reflect on everything that took place. It requires emotions to be released and for you to be vulnerable when needed. Avoiding grief will leave you exposed and unstable.
And when you feel that you are ready to move on, you can follow the guidelines below, which will give you a glimpse of what you may need to start another family and the strong hope of living life once more.
If you need adoption help now, please call or text us at 303-670-4673 (HOPE) or visit us at Adoption Choices of Colorado.
Consulting your Adoption Professional
Fortunately, your adoption professional will help you with this process. They will provide you with the appropriate resources on how to tackle the challenges of overcoming your fears of starting a new family and where to start with this plan. Or if you need a listening ear, the adoption professional can help with that too!
Create an Adoption Plan
In your healing journey, it never hurts to set goals. It can range from a multitude of things like going back to school, beginning a new career, or branching out to a new community. There are exciting opportunities out in the world for you to claim, and while the saying “things are within your grasp” may seem cliche, it is true. You are not limited to anything and if you ever need help starting your adoption professional is available to provide tips and resources on how to start.
Keeping in Contact with the Adopting Family and Receiving Updates
This will come with time, and if you do not feel comfortable with it, that is fine. Birth mothers will choose to maintain a record of the adopting family’s contact information and request updates on the child. It is always nice to see your child growing up, the events they’re attending, and their hobbies; it can aid in the healing process to know that your child is being loved and taken care of.
Birth Mother Support Groups
Birth mother support groups are an excellent way for you to step out and seek a community of people who are experiencing the same struggles as you. Support groups allow birth mothers to discuss their struggles and emotions after adoption, much like an adoption specialist.
Moving Forward and Embracing the New Year after Adoption
Lingering on the past can sometimes harm life; it makes us think that there is nothing else to live for and will withhold us from pursuing future endeavors. People have their timeframes on how they process and heal, and you should never feel rushed. When you feel that it’s the right time to move on and think that you want to start chasing your dreams – nothing is holding you back.
