How Do I Find Support While I Consider Adoption?

An Original Video | Unplanned Pregnancy Panel

Denalee Chapman January 04, 2016

Our panel discusses the importance of being able to find support provided for birth mothers. Pre-placement, relinquishment, placement, and post-placement are all experiences that are highly emotional.

As in all of life, no one can know exactly what you are going through. But to be a part of a group who has experienced something similar can help take away the sting of separation, can help to educate, prepare, and heal. After making the decision to place your child for adoption, finding a support group will be a big help. When working with an agency, they will most likely have support groups already in place and can get you connected. If you’re participating in an independent adoption, it is likely that your attorney will be able to help you find groups and/or individuals who can provide the support you desire.
