Why Birth Parents “Give Up” Their Babies [And Why Adoption is Not Giving Up]

 “Giving your child up” for adoption in Missouri may be a difficult decision. Adoption has its own set of physical and emotional challenges, just like parenting and abortion. But, it always has significant benefits.

Open adoption means you choose the level of communication you want with the prospective adoptive parents of your choice. You can get pictures, calls, and even meet with your child’s prospective adoptive family. This communication can provide peace of mind for you, benefits for your child and a sense of connection for hopeful parents.

Another significant benefit of adoption: You get to choose the adoptive parents for your baby.
