Most Common Reasons Why Birth Mothers Choose Adoption
Have you ever wondered why birth mothers choose adoption? How the decision to place your baby for adoption could be made? With so many stereotypes and negative messages still surrounding the adoption world, it’s perfectly understandable.
If you are a birth mother who is considering adoption for you and your baby, you may be experiencing similar thoughts. From what you’ve heard, adoption seems like a great option, but you aren’t sure if you qualify. If your life circumstances makes you eligible for adoption. You’re in good hands! Adoption Choices of Reno is here to help.
Here are five of the most common reasons for birth mothers to place their baby for adoption.
1. I’m Unable to Parent
Being unable to parent could be for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are homeless, struggling with an addiction or aren’t in a safe living environment. Perhaps you are an active member of the military or a young single woman just out of high school. Or, maybe you didn’t ever see yourself having children. All of these are valid and many of the reasons behind why you might choose adoption for you and your child.
2. I Can’t Afford an Extra Child
As surprising as it might seem, many birth mothers are married, in committed relationships or are already raising children of their own. If a mother of three, of instance, discovers that she is unexpectedly pregnant and cannot financially or mentally provide for another child, adoption can be a great solution for her. This way, she is able to continue to provide for her three children, and her fourth is given their best chance at life with a caring and supportive adoptive family.
3. I’m still in School
Perhaps you’re a freshman or sophomore in high school. Maybe you’ve just started community college. Maybe you’re a junior or senior in college and overwhelming with your coursework.
4. I Don’t Want to be a Parent
You never pictured yourself as a parent. In fact, you have no desire to become one at all. You never have. Friends and family have told you that, one day, you’ll change your mind. That you just haven’t met the right person or aren’t in the right stage of life yet. That your biological clock will start clicking and you’ll long to have a baby. But that never happened.
That’s completely ok. Parenthood is not for everyone. If you find yourself pregnant and you don’t want to be a parent, you can choose to place your baby for adoption in Reno.

5. It’s Not the Right Time
It’s ok to admit that you’re not in a place right now to raise a child. That you’re unable to provide for him or her appropriately. Unplanned pregnancies tend to pop up during moments like this. Maybe you want a child or two in the future, but you hadn’t planned on it being so soon. Your finances aren’t stable yet, and you didn’t want to still be living in an apartment setting. We completely understand. It’s moments like this in life that cause adoption to look appealing to birth mothers. Their current life situation isn’t ideal, but they still want what’s best for their child. Thus, adoption becomes the perfect option.
