Tip of the Week

Placing a child with adoptive parents is not an easy decision for any birthmother. The birthmother can expect to feel grief over the loss of her child. It is also normal that she will feel ashamed of her decision to put her baby up for adoption or guilt for not raising her baby herself. It is important for the birthmother to acknowledge that she will need a grieving period after placement. Birthmothers are highly recommended to seek counseling when planning, and after placing, a child for adoption. She should also seek support from understanding family and friends.
