Modern Adoption vs. Past Adoption

Giving Up My Baby for Adoption in Denver

pregnant in ColoradoAdoption is not giving up. Adoption means you are making a choice to place your baby with a loving family. The terminology “giving up a baby” or “putting up a baby” dates back to the 1800’s. Adoption has modernized since then along with the process. While it’s still a difficult decision for a woman, one which comes with pros and cons, it’s a brave, loving, selfless choice and can be a loving and healthy journey.

We want to make sure you understand that we use the language “give up” and “put up” baby only because it’s still the most commonly searched terms to help women, like you, find adoption support and resources. Our adoption professionals do not believe you are giving up anything; we advocate for positive adoption language. We also want to make sure expectant women who aren’t ready to parent can find us easily.

Placing a baby for adoption takes a tremendous amount of strength and courage.

Placing Your Baby for Adoption in Denver

When facing an unplanned pregnancy, considering your adoption options might feel overwhelming. There is a lot of information on the web and plenty of adoption agencies in Denver that want to support you. It’s important that you do not feel pressured nor obligated to make a decision to place your baby for adoption. In fact, if an agency or person is making you feel like you have to do this, it’s time to find a new agency!

Adoption is an extremely personal decision. With no pressure, no judgement, and no obligation, Adoption Choices of Colorado is happy to provide any and all information and educational resources we can; but, at the end of the day, we understand that you may need some time to think everything over. We will never force you into something you don’t want to do. That’s not how we do things. However, we can promise to walk with you each step of the way if you decide that placing your baby for adoption is the right choice for you.

Every woman has her story. Often we find some common ground of why she chooses adoption. Here are some top reasons why women, like you, choose to place their child for adoption.

Why Choose Adoption?

  • I’m not ready to be a parent or I don’t want to be a parent
  • I don’t want to have an abortion
  • I can’t afford to raise a baby or child
  • I don’t want another child
  • I already have a family
  • I can’t provide what a baby needs
  • I’m too young to have a baby
  • I’m too old to have a baby
  • I want to focus on my education or career
  • I was sexually assaulted or abused
  • I was raped and now I’m pregnant
  • Unknown or uninvolved birth father
  • I don’t want a forever connection with the baby’s father
  • I’m not ready

No being ready is okay! Not wanting a baby is okay! We understand and we are compassionate about your reasons for considering putting your child up for adoption.

Is Adoption the Right Choice?

pregnant in denver adoptionLuckily there is no right or wrong when it comes to adoption. It’s a permanent decision which definitely makes it difficult; and we understand that you want to know that it’s the right choice. Going over the details with a professional can help you sort out your feelings. Our adoption counselors will discuss your situation and what your baby’s future might look like if you parent. We’ll talk about your goals and what you hope your baby’s future might look like with an adoptive family. We discuss all your options, not just adoption.

We will talk about opportunity, safety, health, and what you feel is in the best interest of your unborn (or newly born) baby. So, ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what is best for your life and that of your baby’s.

3 Reasons Why Adoption is an Option

What Are the Requirements for Placing a Baby for Adoption in Denver?

There are no specific requirements to place your child for adoption in Denver, Colorado. Anyone can place a baby for adoption, as long as you feel adoption is the right choice for yourself and your child.

At any age, at any time during pregnancy, and even after the baby is born, you can choose adoption. If you are facing teen pregnancy, or pregnant in your 20’s, 30’s, or over 40 and pregnant, adoption is still an option for you.

Many young girls fear they are not allowed to choose adoption or will get in trouble for not wanting to keep the baby. But that is just not true. Adoption provides an opportunity for teens to finish school, pursue college or career and decide when is the right time in life to start a family.

Older women are often worried they will be judged for unexpectedly getting pregnant and then not wanting to keep the baby. Every woman has her reason for wanting or not wanting something and it is not up to anyone else to judge nor criticize.

There are also no requirements for how pregnant you are or how many weeks pregnant you are to choose adoption. Whether you are 10 weeks, 16 weeks, or 36 weeks pregnant, starting the adoption process is an option. When you discover you are pregnant and decide adoption is right for you, the time is right. That said, there is some assistance that might not be available to you early in the pregnancy, but as soon as you reach these weekly markers in planning, more options for assistance become available.
