Adoption Truth: Guys Can Be Involved, Too

the adoption truth is, your guy can get involved in the adoption planning, too“My girlfriend is 25 weeks pregnant. We’re both 19, and just work part-time while we go to school. So I know there’s no way I could support a family right now. She thinks adoption is going to be best for our baby. She’s probably right, but I can’t just forget about my child. I need to stay a part of their life.”

Does your baby’s father want to remain a part of his child’s life after the adoption happens? Keep reading to learn how he can be a part of making an adoption plan, and why it’s good for him to get involved.

Modern, open adoption is getting to be more common and understood. And, more birth fathers are taking part in the adoption process. Usually, we find that when a birth father knows he has rights in open adoption too, he becomes supportive of the adoption plans.

Your baby’s father can help you pick your baby’s adoptive parents, come to know them, and help as you make the plan for on-going future contact.

Even if you decide not to stay in touch with your baby’s adoptive family after the adoption happens, he can still stay connected with his child’s adoptive family and his child. Many times a man may be more supportive of an adoption plan if he knows that he also can participate in the open adoption!

You can learn more about your guy’s involvement in adoption planning in this short video:
