BIRTH PARENTS: BASICS
Written by Deborah.
As a birth mother your greatest responsibility is to provide a healthy intrauterine environment for your baby, including optimal nutrition.
As birth parents your primary consideration should be your child's future. What is in your child's best interest long-term? Consider your current and future set of living circumstances as well as the family environment you can or cannot provide.
As birth parents you are morally obligated to make choices that will provide your baby with stability, safety, security and a loving family.
Adoption placement may be the best decision for your child's future. Adoption is an option to prayerfully and thoughtfully consider.
If you choose to place your child with a Christian Adoption couple, we expect you to fulfill these additional responsibilities.
***Read the profiles of all listed Christian Adoption couples and consider each one.
***Seek God's guidance and direction--He will gladly assist you.
***Select the couple that you believe is the best choice for your child. (Please remember that wealth, job position, social status, and/or physical appearance is no reflection of a couple's ability to parent a child.)
***Contact either the Christian Adoption couple you're considering and/or contact us at Christian Adoption: 1.800.277.7006 email@example.com
***Ask questions that are important to you and your child's future.
***Determine the type of relationship you're seeking post placement.
***Discuss your viewpoint about a post placement relationship with your Christian Adoption couple.
***Share your thoughts regarding your delivery plan with your Christian Adoption couple.
***Remain in contact during your pregnancy with your Christian Adoption couple.
***Relinquish parental rights (TPR) when authorized to do so, in the state where you give birth.
***Adhere to the adoption plan that you agreed to with your Christian Adoption couple.
**Recall God's blessings upon you and your child for following His guidance.
