26 Dec A Birth Mother’s Heart: My Journey to Choosing Adoption
As a birth mother who chose to place my child up for adoption, I want to share my story. This decision, probably the most challenging and profound of my life, was made with a deep sense of love and hope for my child’s future.
My journey began with the realization that I was not in a position to provide the life I dreamed for my child. Despite the overwhelming love I felt, circumstances involving financial instability, personal struggles, and the absence of a supportive partner made me question my ability to be the parent my child deserved.
The Emotional Turmoil
The decision wasn’t easy. It was a whirlwind of emotions – guilt, grief, love, and selflessness. I grappled with societal judgments and my own internal conflict. But, during this turmoil, I knew I had to consider what was best for my child.
Discovering Ellen Kaplan Adoptions
That’s when I found Ellen Kaplan Adoptions. Their compassionate approach and understanding of the emotional complexities involved in this decision were a beacon of hope. They provided clear, transparent communication, ensuring I was informed every step of the way.

The Choice for a Better Future
I chose adoption because I wanted more for my child – opportunities, stability, and a nurturing environment. This decision was my gift to my child, a pathway to a life filled with potential, love, and security that I was, at that time, unable to provide.
One of the most comforting aspects of this process was meeting the adoptive family. Seeing their excitement, love, and readiness to provide a wonderful home for my child eased my heart. It affirmed my belief that this was the right decision.
