If you’re thinking about adoption, you might be wondering about the hopeful adoptive parents on our website. What is it that they have to offer your child?
Placing your child with a loving family who can provide a safe, loving home can be a great relief. There are many things that an adoptive family can offer your child through an open adoption. Today, we’re going to share 10 of them!
For some birth mothers, their reason for choosing adoption is that they’re just not ready to become a mom at this point in their lives. And, they recognize that adoptive couples are very ready and eager to embark on the journey of parenthood. You’re in the driver’s seat of your adoption plan. It’s your choice (and your right) to hand-pick just who will raise your baby. From where the adoptive couple lives to what faith they follow, you will have tons of ways to tailor your adoption search to your liking.
Here are the top 10 things that an adoptive family can offer your child through an open adoption:
- Safe and stable home life
- Financial security
- A two-parent home
- Grows up with parents who are emotionally and financially ready to take on this life-long responsibility
- The ability to participate in any activity or sport he or she chooses
- Quality medical, dental, and vision care
- Access to a top-notch education
- The opportunity to travel
- A stay-at-home mom
- Knowledge that his or her birth parents cared enough to choose the best for their life
One of biggest advantages of choosing adoption is that you’re able to remain a part of your child’s life. Many birth mothers choose to stay in contact with the adoptive family and their child through open adoption. The amount of contact varies, from updates emailed to you, to yearly in-person visits.
By keeping in touch and seeing your child grow up, you’re able to rest easy about their welfare. In this way, birth mothers can be reassured that their child is loved and well-cared for. What this actually does is provide reassurance that their decision to make an adoption plan was the right one!
