Am I a Bad Person for Choosing to Place My Baby for Adoption?

No! Choosing to give your baby up for adoption is a selfless act. Your body nurtures and protects that bundle in your stomach. During that journey, you endure the hardships that come with it. Then afterward, you fill that empty space only a child can fill for your chosen adoptive family. You are giving yourself and your baby a chance to live a more stable and fruitful life.

We at Adoption Choices of Nevada understand that adoption has significant impacts on birth mothers. Therefore, we compassionately offer a variety of services for women choosing adoption. 

Our adoption agencies provide support groups and counseling. When beginning your adoption process, you will be given a birth parent counselor. They will guide you on your journey. If you ever have questions or need someone to talk to, they are there for you. Your counselor can offer you advice on a variety of subjects. They have directed many birth mothers prior to you, and their experience gives them familiarity with a range of subjects. 

As said numerous times before, there are many women choosing adoption, just like you! It can feel like a very lonely process. You may not know anyone who has gone through this journey, leaving you feeling isolated. In order to provide you with a sense of reassurance in your decision, we offer support groups.
