We can understand you are upset. We get calls all the time from parents about their pregnant daughters. An unexpected pregnancy can be stressful for the entire family. Often, the initial call we receive is a fact finding mission, gathering information to help the family make a decision. We are happy to offer guidance and support to you and to your daughter.
Adoption today is not the adoption you may know from your youth. Gone is the stigma. The new philosophy is that adoption is a loving choice, and an alternative Parenting Plan made by selfless parents who put the babys needs before their own. Today, your daughter will have the opportunity to hand pick Adoptive Parents. If she chooses an Open or Semi-Open Adoption Plan she may enjoy visits with her child and updates on the childs progress.
If you wish, we can put you in touch with Adoptive Parents who are willing to share their adoption stories with you. You and your daughter will be able to meet prospective Adoptive Parents and hand pick the babys adoptive family. This baby is your grandchild, and it may be difficult to think of the child being raised by another family, but by meeting and choosing the family, building a relationship with them, you can feel assured the child will have the best possible upbringing. It is also possible to choose an Open of Semi-Open adoption, where your daughter can receive updates on the child, or personal visits, on a regular basis. In todays adoption, it is possible to have an ongoing relationship with the child after the adoption is finalized.
It must be remembered the adoption decision is your daughters decision. Your love and support during this difficult time is very important. Adoption is never an easy decision which is why we will offer professional pre-adoption and post adoption counseling.
We will be happy to offer you an opportunity to meet with one of Adoption Specialist for a confidential fact finding meeting. We will provide you with information and an opportunity to explore the subject of adoption in a no pressure, nonjudgmental environment.
