For this reason, we make it a point to get to know our birth mothers on a personal level before we assist them with finding the right adoptive family of their choice. We take your preferences into consideration concerning the family you are seeking for your baby, including religion, household environment, parenting styles, educational values, and anything else that might be important to you.
We understand that this can be an overwhelming and emotional task, which is why we try to get to know you and address any questions or concerns you may have, to help put your mind at ease.
+ Do I get a say in the adoptive family?
+ How do I tell my family about my adoption?
There are several ways you can tell your family and friends about your adoption plans. Many birth mothers choose to tell their loved ones in person, but if you do not feel comfortable doing so, writing a letter can also help you share the news without having to do it face-to-face. Another option is to write a letter containing all of the information you want to share and then reading it to your loved ones out loud. This will ensure that you don’t leave out any important information.
While it may be a good idea to explain your reason for placing your baby for adoption with friends and family, we understand if you want to keep your adoption confidential. The staff at A is 4 Adoption is here to support you no matter what you decide.
