how old are you?it should be your choice but i dont know your situation.


Grandpa Viv - May 23 is a good place to start. You need to decide if you are looking for an open adoption where you get to have occasional contact with your child, or the regular adoption where you lose track. Most adopting couples do not care for open adoption because they fear the birth mother will create complications, but if you look around you will find some. Giving your child for adoption is a hard and courageous decision. In the long run it is a win-win-win situation for mother, child and adopters. Good luck!

Annabelle, The choice is yours...she is your child. I don't know your situation; however if you should choose to place your baby for adoption. choose an agency that offers you all the support you are going to need.My husband and I want to adopt and have chosen an agency that offers the birthmother alot of support and counseling. I feel this is very important. feel free to email me if you have any questions

Yep, one of the hardest things to do is to carry a baby for 9 months and give it up at the end. That is why folk here have to go to China and other places to adopt, places where life is so hard that another child would affect the welfare of the older siblings. There's a good chance that your mom will bond to the baby if you can just get her to hold it in her arms for a few minutes after birth. Maybe they will not be so insistent after that. Good luck!

You do what YOU want to do! I had my first baby when I was 18 and my parents also said I couldnt keep the baby and would disown me if I did keep her. They called an adoption agency and got everything together. The only thing they let me do was pick out the parents I wanted to raise my child. I lived in west virginia and as soon as i graduated my parents sent me off to Iowa (there is family in Iowa) so I wouldnt have my friends here influencing me to keep the baby. The day I had to leave the hospital without my baby girl was very tramatic and changed my life forever so please do what you think is right for you! I am now married and pregnant with another baby girl due in July.
