Our Unplanned Pregnancy Panel Talks About Grief

An Adoption.com Original Video | Unplanned Pregnancy Panel

Denalee Chapman December 27, 2015

Many women who have placed their children for adoption don’t get the opportunity to go through the grieving process. The child didn’t die, but is alive and well with wonderful parents. Many times, the pregnancy has not been publicized so many don’t know that a child has been loved, placed, and lost. Because of this, there is not the sympathy and opportunities to acknowledge and grieve that is affordable to parents who have lost children to death.

Although most birth mothers are happy with their decisions to place for adoption, there is still the feeling of loss. This doesn’t mean regret, but it still requires healing. In this video, our panel discusses their experiences and their advice for those who are in a situation requiring they go through the grieving process.
