What Our Birthparents Have to Say about Their Experience

“When I learned I was pregnant, I was frozen with fear.  I simply did not know what to do but I knew what I did not want to do.  Adoption Assistance Agency lovingly helped me figure out what to do and found an amazing family for my baby.”

“The baby has a real chance at a happy life. There is pain and sacrifice no matter what decision I make and there are joys with both parenting and adoption.”

“An adoption is the best way to provide a life of love, attention and financial stability for this baby.  I want the best for him and keeping him with me would not be.  I love him and he will always be in my heart.”

“I believe the adoptive parents would be better equipped to supply the financial and emotional support the baby will need.  I think I would have a hard time paying enough attention to him, and fear I would not be able to love him the way he deserves to be loved. I have a hard enough time giving these things to my daughter.  An adoptive family would be able to give him complete care, from financial stability, to attention and love.”

“I’ve always wanted to have children of my own, just not at this time in my life.”

“I have given her life and I have given her a good life with a mom and a dad who will love her, watch over her, protect her, nurture her and provide for her.”

“I found out I was pregnant with my second kid.  I am raising my 2 year old son all by myself.  His dad was never around when I needed him.  I learned to take care of my son as a single parent.  With this second pregnancy, I knew it was going to be harder.  I would have to do it all over again and alone.  Adoption was the best thing I could think of.  I knew it would be the hardest decision ever in my life.  I knew I couldn’t care for the baby like I wanted to.  I was unemployed and I just started going to school for my GED.  I knew there would be a family out there that could give the baby the world.  It is better when there are two parents there for support.  I picked a family that I got to meet the following week.  I really enjoyed meeting them, it was a really good feeling they were going to take the baby.  On March 20th at 1:02am I had a girl.  It felt so good to see how happy the new parents were.  Just knowing that I could change two people’s lives forever made me feel really good.  We have an open adoption so we talk all the time and have only seen her once after I had her, but I get a lot of pictures to see how she is growing.  I have no regrets, just happiness.”

“I thought about keeping the baby and decided it would be a bad idea to parent.  Not because I didn’t want to be a mother, but I didn’t want to be a mother right then.  So I thought about adoption.  I thought about all those families out there without children.  It was right then that I made up my mind.  With my decision made, I now needed to take the next course of action. I went to Adoption Assistance Agency and met with my caseworker.  I started looking for the family this baby deserved. Looking through the portfolios and learning abut the people in the photos; I chose a family that had already been through the process of adoption.  They were the right family, and I am happy that I could give them the addition to their family that they’ve been waiting for.  I am happy that I have had the options open to me that I have.”

“The father of the baby is still in my life.  He is not as happy about adoption as I am, but he knows that it is the best thing for the baby, too.”

“The caseworker at Adoption Assistance Agency I worked with was great. I wasn’t pressured in any way and my questions were always answered.  The support was great, and because I was in no position to parent a child, adoption was the best choice.”

“I had some choices to make; so I went through counseling and I came to the decision, with lots of prayer and thought, of what was best for me and what was right for the baby.  It was not an easy decision either way I decided.  I chose adoption, and looking back, it was the right decision for both of us.  I can honestly say I have no regrets about my adoption plan.”
