An unplanned pregnancy can feel overwhelming. There are a variety of options available to women, with adoption being one of them. Adoption has changed substantially since the early days. Modern progressive adoption is 100% voluntary where birth parents make a personal adoption plan, select the family and directly place their baby for adoption with a family they personally select. There are varying degrees of openness in adoption. You should choose what feels right to you and your situation. Regardless of the amount of openness you choose, the glue that binds adoptive parent(s) and expectant mothers together is the opportunity for two families to join forces for the good of a child who will only benefit from the unconditional love provided by both families.

Reasons Why We Do NOT Recommend Finding an Adoptive Family Online & Contacting Them Directly
Catfishing is a huge problem. It is challenging for you to know with absolute certainty that the people you are speaking with and the story they are telling you is real.
The “do-it-yourself” approach means you don’t have anyone protecting you as your advocate.
After you deliver, who will be around you to assist and support you?
You will have to handle difficult discussions with the adoptive family yourself. If you need more living expenses or are having second thoughts about the adoption, you will need to discuss that directly with the adoptive family.
You don’t know if the family you are talking to is also talking to other expectant mothers and can be trusted to follow through with your adoption plan.
A family may not be open to assisting you with housing and living expenses or may not be permitted to provide you with expenses based on the laws of their state.
You don’t know if the family is truly open to the gender, ethnicity, level of openness you desire, etc.
The adoptive family you directly contact likely will dictate which attorneys and adoption professionals you will be working with rather than the choice being yours.
You can’t explore adoption as an option without getting a family involved. In which case, if you change your mind you have to tell the family yourself and risk hurting them.
