"Since I could not provide what we needed, the best decision I ever made was to find a loving adoptive family to raise my daughter. She loves her family and loves me too. I didn't give her up, I gave her more." -Donna
Adoption is a wonderful choice! There are so many families that would be thrilled to adopt your baby- many who would otherwise never have the opportunity to have a child of their own. We understand that the circumstances in which a woman can become pregnant are not always ideal; parenting may just not seem right for you. If that is the case, then adoption is a great alternative. It is truly a gift of life you are giving to not only the baby, but also the family you choose for him/her. You are still able to take an active role in this child's future by picking the perfect adoptive parents for him/her. In contrast, if you choose to leave that up to the adoption agency, that is possible too! Even more interesting, you can choose to have an "open adoption," meaning that you still have an active role in the child's life, though he/she lives with another family. The important thing to remember is that it is up to YOU; you have a legal right to choose what is best for you and this child.

You baby's father could participate in the adoption process, if you agree, and can take part in future communication with the adoptive family you choose, even if you don't want to stay in touch."
