adoption plan for your child is a loving choice.
The New "Open Adoption" - You have the power ...
The new, “Open Adoption” option is empowering natural parents
to have input on who the child’s future parents will be and enable
dialogue between the natural parent(s) and adoptive family as
to how much involvement the natural parent(s) will have with
the child and adoptive family.
Every option for those facing an unplanned pregnancy is a
difficult choice, but the adoption option has become much
more appealing. A long time ago, people had to “give
their child up” and never see him or her again. It
used to feel like "abandoning" the child. Today,
however, natural parents can “make a parenting plan of
adoption” for their child. They can select the child's
future parents and discuss how much they would like to be involved
in the child's life. Years down the road as they
remember the anniversary of the child’s birth, they could
have photos, letters and even a personal relationship with
this child. Many are saying that this joy of watching their
child grow and develop helps them deal with the “loss”
aspect of adoption in a positive way that others say they
regret not having after choosing abortion.
We support adoption as a beautiful option for those
experiencing unplanned pregnancy. There are thousands of
couples in Nova Scotia praying for the opportunity to share
their love with a newborn baby. We are here to help natural
parents and adoptive parents and encourage them in, and walk
with them through the process of adoption.
We also provide ongoing support for natural parents. We
understand the challenges natural parents face and we are here
to support and listen and help.
Adoption is a loving choice. For many choosing adoption, it is a responsible act of parenting their child.
