Giving a Baby Up for Adoption

You are not giving your baby up when choosing adoption

As an expectant mother, you want what is best for your child. When considering adoption, a few concerns might be holding you back. Is giving a baby up for adoption a selfish decision? Does placing my child for adoption make me a bad parent? We know it is stressful to have to navigate these difficult questions and doubts during this challenging time.

At Colorado Christian Services, we believe you are not “giving up” your baby; instead, you are putting your baby’s needs ahead of yours. Adoption is a selfless, brave, and loving choice.

Call us at (720) 280-9517 for free and confidential counseling and to learn more about our adoption services. Talking to us does not obligate you to place your baby for adoption. Through the loving sacrifice of many birthparents who have placed their child for adoption through CCS, nearly 1,200 children have grown up in loving and stable homes.

Choosing adoption does not mean “giving up” your baby

A decision to place your baby up for adoption shows that you love your baby so much that you want to make the best decision for your baby.

You have already demonstrated your love for your unborn child by choosing life. Even if you are facing an unexpected pregnancy, you can help guide your baby’s future.

You can choose a family for your baby from our approved waiting families and also decide the amount of contact you want to have between you and the adoptive family.

The benefits of adoption for your baby

  • A loving two-parent family
  • A life full of love
  • A supportive and safe environment
  • A lasting connection based on the adoption plan
  • The opportunity to receive a good education

The adoption journey can be challenging but also provide hope and opportunities. Stories of other birth mothers can show how adoption can work out for the good of everyone involved.

You are in charge of the process

Adoption looks very different than it used to and birth parents are now empowered to make decisions they feel are best. If you choose adoption, you are in charge of the process. From start to finish, you will be able to decide what’s best for you and your baby.

  • Create your adoption plan
  • Receive financial assistance if needed
  • Choose the adoptive parents
  • Decide on a hospital plan
  • Establish the type of ongoing contact

Through open adoption, you can create an opportunity for a lifelong connection with your baby even after placement.
