You were surprised when you found out that you were pregnant. On top of that, your partner didn’t want the pregnancy and asked you to end it. You couldn’t, so now you’re looking into options to give your child the best life, even though you and your partner won’t be a part of it.
Realizing that you’re not in the position to raise your child is difficult, frightening and overwhelming, but the good news is that you have the option of working with people who can help. Your attorney can help by giving you support and guidance throughout this difficult time in your life. Even if you’re not sure what you want to do, they can help walk you through your options.
With birth mother concerns, you deserve to have someone on your side to help you as you:
- Consider possible adoptive families
- Learn about child placement and adoption
- Become more educated about the entire process
- Find out about your rights both before and after the adoption
This can be a difficult decision for you to make, and your attorney will be there to support you with that in mind. Whether you want to place your child with an agency or would like to go through an independent adoption, you deserve to have someone there who can help guide you through the process.
