Others Involved in Adoption
Your Family and Friends
There is a lot to think about when you are pregnant and considering adoption. Your main concern, of course, is always your baby’s wellbeing — you love your child, and you are considering adoption because you want the absolute best for him or her.
But there may be other people on your mind, too… specifically, your friends and family members. How are you going to tell them about your unplanned pregnancy? If someone in your family offers to adopt your baby, should you consider placing with them? If the people in your life are supportive of your adoption plan, how can you involve them in the process? If they’re not supportive, what do you do?
These can be tricky topics to navigate. The guides below can help. Or, if you want to talk to an adoption professional about your specific situation, you can get free information here.
