Giving Up My Baby for Adoption in Denver
Adoption 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 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.
We want to make sure you understand that we use the language “give up” and “put up” 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.
