“A Birth Mother puts the needs of her child before the wants of her own”…
MYTHS and FACTS about Adoption


The Birth Mother will regret her decision for the rest of her life.


Birth Mothers, who understand that adoption gives their baby a stable future of opportunity and love, will live the rest of their lives knowing they’ve given their baby a very special gift.

MYTH: A Birth Mother who chooses adoption will have serious emotional problems.

FACT: When a Birth Mother chooses adoption, she will have a far better opportunity to live a stable life; will have a much better chance of a successful and happy marriage;  is far less likely to live in poverty; will be much more likely to complete her education and enjoy a successful career.

MYTH: Adoption is a more traumatic experience than abortion.

FACT: Abortion causes many women deep emotional scars and the pain of regret oftentimes continues for a lifetime. Adoption can be a very emotional process for some, but Birth Mothers who place their baby for adoption experience an entirely different type of emotion,  a lifetime of self-satisfaction for putting the welfare and happiness of their baby first above everything else.

The adopted child is more likely to finish school; less likely to be delinquent; more likely to have a better job; more likely to have a stable marriage; less likely to live in poverty than if the child were raised in a single parent home.


MYTH: Adopted children grow up feeling bitter and rejected.

FACT: Nothing could  be further from the truth.The Adopted child will grow up knowing that his family was created by adoption and understanding that his Birth Mother selflessly planned a wonderful future for her child. The child grows up confident in the knowledge and security that he is loved on two levels; his Birth Mother and his adoptive family.

MYTH: Adoptive parents are not as fit to raise a child as biological parents.

FACT: An unplanned pregnancy can affect all types of women, ranging in age and maturity levels. Birth Mothers may be young or older, already parenting other children, financially unstable, or simply seeking a more permanent and stable future for the child than they can provide. Adoptive parents, on the other hand, are ready and excited to take on the responsibility of parenthood. They have gone through an exhaustive screening process to qualify and prepare them to be successful parents.


MYTH: The adoption process is secretive.

FACT: Birth Mothers represented by Ellen Kaplan can select and meet with the adoptive family and exchange information. We encourage close collaboration between the Birth Mother and adoptive family.
