The father of the baby is my husband, boyfriend, etc. Is it unusual that we want to place our baby for adoption?

No, it’s not unusual at all. We often work with married or dating Birth Parents who chose to make an Adoption Plan together. Every relationship, every pregnancy, and every situation is different. We can’t generalize, and we don’t judge. Couples make Adoption Plans because it is the best choice for the baby and everyone else involved. Many couples have other children, and one more child will add too much strain to the family’s situation. For a Birth Mother, having a partner, husband, or boyfriend sharing the decision is a source of comfort and support.
