Continuing Life After Adoption in Nevada
By Mackenzie Sutton
Returning to “normal” after you place your baby up for adoption can be challenging. You may question how you will return to normal after the adoption process. As the birth mother, returning to work/school or back to your social life can be nerve-wracking. After all, many of your friends and family know you were pregnant, and ultimately, you chose adoption. We understand this is scary as you fear judgment, confronting those who may be disappointed in your decision, etc. However, no matter what your “normal” life looked like before adoption, know that with time and patience, you can return to normalcy.
We here at Adoption Choices of Nevada want to offer you the best and most helpful advice we can. No birth mother should fear returning to normalcy after adoption. We recommend sharing essential information about your adoption process with adoption in Nevada or Las Vegas to make this process easier.
Addressing Questions From Your Friends and Family
With the topic of adoption come many questions and concerns from people who aren’t familiar with the adoption process in Nevada. Informing friends and family of the process can be the best way to combat misjudgment and negative opinions. Though informing and educating can be helpful, remember you are in control of what and how much you tell people. You should only share information that you are comfortable with regarding your pregnancy or adoption. Some questions you may hear after giving up your child for adoption may include:
- Why would you give your baby up?
- Is the birth father behind this decision?
- Were you not able to take care of your baby?
- How do you know their new home is safe?
It is normal to hear questions like this after placing a child up for adoption. Most of the time, these questions and concerns come from a place of love for you and your child. Other times, these questions can stem from negative connotations surrounding adoption. Just do your best to explain how and why adoption was the best choice for you and your child! You can also go into detail about the steps of your adoption plan and explain how you took the precautions to ensure your child’s safety.
Denouncing negative stereotypes can prevent individuals from spreading the same misconceptions to other people. Reassure your friends and family that choosing adoption isn’t a selfish decision but a decision that will help better you and your child’s life. Always remember that you made the brave decision for your child and said, “I want to put my child up for adoption” to make sure your child has a great life.
