Birth Mothers – The Stress of an Unplanned Pregnancy
This is probably the most stressful and difficult time of your life. So many questions are going through your mind: What will my family say? What are my options? Should I parent? Is placing my baby for adoption the right decision? How do I know my baby will be placed with the right family who will love him unconditionally? Who can help me? Who can I trust to listen and inform me of my options? These questions and more are running through your mind, and it can all feel completely overwhelming.
The first thing to know is you are not alone. For over 20 years, I have helped hundreds of women just like you understand all their options and supported them in their decision. Being an adoption and family law attorney and registered obstetrical nurse gives me unique insight and perspective so that we can have an open, honest and compassionate conversation.
Above all, know that adoption is the most selfless decision you can make and the truest demonstration of a mother’s unconditional love. It’s a decision solely based on the best interests of your child, not your own.
You have an advocate; you have a friend.
