A recent study showed what is important to a woman who is trying to decide if adoption is the right choice for her. This, of course, can be a difficult choice to make.
95% of birth mothers found that being able to select the adoptive parents for her child to be most important. Paired with that is being able to talk and email with, as well as meet the adoptive family prior to the birth of the baby.
Birth mothers also felt having access to counseling and receiving updates, such as pictures and letters, from the adoptive parents as next important. Being able to create an adoption plan that makes a birth mother feel comfortable is also of great importance.
Making sure that a birth mother feels good about the family she is placing with, that she can get to ask them any questions she has and can meet with a counselor following the placement can truly help a birth mother to feel good about choosing adoption for her child.
