Adoption is a wonderful option that has changed many lives. Since open adoptions have become the norm, we have seen many benefits for adopted children. Many adoptees have the unique experience of being loved by two sets of parents, both the birth parents and adoptive parents. Benefits of adoption are not limited to the children alone and extend to the birth mothers as well as the adoptive parents, who welcome the child into their home. Benefits are far reaching and can have a dramatic impact on the lives of everyone involved. Take a look at a few of the benefits adoption offers birth mothers and adoptive parent(s).
Benefits for the Birth Mother
Adoption offers many benefits for the birth mother, including:
Allowing her to plan for the baby’s future by choosing the adoptive parent(s) for the baby.
Experiencing the impact she has on adoptive parent(s), enabling them to be parents and share in their joy.
Reducing the financial stress of supporting another dependent, assistance with medical, counseling, and other expenses.
The possibility of being somehow involved in the child’s life as they grow based on agreements with the adoptive parent(s).
Giving the birth mother the peace of mind that their child is being properly cared for.
Benefits for the Adoptive Parents
Parents who choose to adopt a child open benefit by:
Being involved in the pregnancy and delivery, and also having immediate contact and bonding with the baby.
Gaining access to information, medical histories, mental health histories, and reasons for placement. This information empowers the adoptive parent(s) to confidently share genetic, cultural, and other knowledge with the child as he or she grows.
For anyone who is unable to conceive naturally, adoption offers the opportunity to raise children and fulfill their dreams of having a family.
Providing a loving, safe, and financially stable home for a child that may otherwise have a more difficult home situation
Helping a birth mother who has courageously and selflessly chosen to place her baby for adoption, as she is unable to provide the life she hopes for her baby.
