Giving Baby Up For Adoption During the Holidays
“It’s almost Thanksgiving, and I just found out that I’m pregnant. I’d like to give baby up for adoption, but not sure what to do next. ”
An unplanned pregnancy is what it is – unplanned. But what is important right now is that you know that you aren’t alone and that there are people out there who can help you navigate through this difficult time. Heart of Adoptions, Inc has a team of dedicated, experienced caseworkers who will work tirelessly to ensure that your needs are met and that you are able to place your baby for adoption, even during the Holiday Season.
During this time of year, it’s easy to feel down, especially when going through something as isolated as an unplanned pregnancy. You may even find yourself wondering what the holidays will look like in the future after you’ve placed your baby for adoption. Every adoption situation is different, but depending on the level of openness that you’ve chosen to have with the adoptive family, you may be able to spend some time with your child during the holiday season.
It’s not uncommon for birth parents to meet up and celebrate holidays with the adoptive family. In fact, many birth parents specify that they’d like their annual (or semi-annual) meetings to be around Thanksgiving or Christmas, just because of how special those celebrations can be. If you’d like to have a relationship like this with your baby’s adoptive family, that’s something that you can specify in your adoption plan.
Even if you aren’t sure that open adoption is right for you, you may find solace in the handcrafted letters, cute photos, and video updates that the adoptive family may send around the holidays. Many adoptive families plan to have their child make something special for their birth mother for Christmas. It might not seem like much right now, but we’ve heard countless stories from birth parents of how a small present like this has brought so them so much joy, at a time when it was sorely needed.
