I was wondering how many women in here decided to give their baby up for adoption. And if it's not too personal to ask was wondering the circumstances that made them decide this was the best option for their child. I've been considering it a bit but with alot of hestitation.

I placed my daughter (mow 5) for adoption. I was only 17 and I was only with the father for 3 months when I got pregnant. (we are now married). I didn't have a steady job and was in a TERRIBLE financial state. We knew our daughter deserved more than what we could provide. So, we found an awsome family and placed her in their family. She is SOOOO happy and has more than I could've ever given her! We are blessed with an open adoption and still see her frequently. I can't imagine my life without adoption! I now work with other birthmothers and LOVE it! If you need ANYTHING, please don't hesitate to ask. PM me and I'll give you my email.

I did an adoption as well... I was not financially or emotionally able to be a parent at the point when Olivia and Selah were born... They deserved so much more than what I could give them at the time... so I chose open adoption as my option... And they really do have the best, and everything I wanted to give them with so much more!

I placed my son Matthew for adoption when I was 17. My family situation was bad. My mother was abusive and alcoholic and my father was a drug abuser. The father and I were young and while our relationship was strong, we were not ready to get married. If you need any help or want to talk PM me. Im here for you
