Women may decide to make an adoption plan for many reasons:
- Too young and not ready to be a parent
- Cannot afford to raise a child
- Are already parenting and don’t have the resources to raise another child
- No support from the birth father or their family
Many women share that they chose adoption out of love; they want to provide a better life for their child. With open adoption, a birth parent is able to choose their child’s parents. As you can see, there are many reasons women choose to place their child up for adoption.
There are also over 500,000 children in foster care that are available for adoption as well.
