7 Ways Adoption Can Help A Pregnant Woman Who Cannot Care For Her Baby

There are many reasons women choose adoption in Arizona if they cannot care for their baby themselves. Choosing to give your baby up for adoption can be due to any number of reasons for a birth mother, such as: not being ready, not wanting to be a mother, her career, her education, her financial situation, her health, the children she is already raising, or her housing situation. Adoption Choices of Arizona knows these reasons are all valid, and we want to show you how adoption can help you in any way possible. We assure you we will support you and your baby through this process.

If you need adoption help now, please call or text us at 1-480-900-5520 or visit us at Adoption Choices of Arizona.

  1. I’m not ready to be a mother

    You are not the first woman to have an unplanned pregnancy and need help. You can take all the precautions and be as careful as possible, but no birth control is 100% effective. Don’t worry because you are not alone. Adoption Choices of Arizona understands that you may not be ready to be a mother. We understand that raising a child is a special and important job that not everyone is ready for as soon as the stick shows two lines. If you choose an adoption agency in Phoenix, AZ, we will help your child find the best family to love and care for them as you would if you were ready to raise your child yourself.

  2. I do not want to be a mother or raise a child

    Maybe you are happy with your life as is and do not want to raise a child at all. That is a valid decision that no one should ever make you feel bad about. You have to do what is best for you, and by association, best for your child. You and your child would not be happy if you were forced to do something you did not want to. Adoption is a great way for your child to have a family where they will always be loved, wanted, and cared for. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to be a mother. Making sure your child is taken care of, even by giving them up for adoption, can be the best choice you can make for them.

  3. How do I continue my education if I am raising a child? How do I progress in my career as a single mother?

    Continuing and progressing in your education and career while raising a baby by yourself is possible but can be difficult. Children take a lot of attention, time, money, and care, which you may not always be able to give. Careers also take a lot of time, attention, and care. This is true of education as well, although education often needs a lot of money, which can make budgeting difficult for a child to raise. We understand this and want to help you. Putting your child up for adoption allows them to be cared for, while you can make them and yourself proud by climbing the professional ladder.

  4. I am not financially able to raise and support my child

    Raising a child can be expensive, and Adoption Choices of Arizona understands this. No matter how much you love your child, money may be what the decision comes down to whether adoption is the option you need. Adoptive parents do help birth mothers to make ends meet during their pregnancies, but money is unfortunately often needed to fully cloth, feed, and support a child in our society. Adoption Choices of Arizona understands this is valid reasoning and can work as discreetly and closely as you would like. We will help to support you through this process, so you and your child are well taken care of.

  5. What do I do if my mental health is not stable enough to raise my child? How do I raise my baby if my physical health is not well?

    Adoption Choices of Phoenix knows that one’s health, both mental and physical, can be very important when raising a family. If you feel you are unable to raise your child due to mental or physical health issues, that is nothing to be ashamed of. Do not think of putting your child up for adoption as giving up, but as giving opportunities and a family to your child.

  6. I already have kids, I can’t support another baby

    We understand raising even one kid can be a lot for a family, and knowing you may be having another and are unable to care for them as well can be frustrating. These are valid concerns. Adoption Choices of Phoenix and Arizona will work with you and support you through these difficult times. Know that you are not alone and you are not the first mother to be raising children, find out you are pregnant and find yourself unable to also care for this new baby. Unfortunately, many mothers find themselves in similar situations and choose to place their child up for adoption. You are not alone, and you are not the only one this has happened to.

  7. What do I do if I am pregnant and homeless?

    Adoption Choices of Arizona will work with your child’s adoptive family to make sure you are well taken care of throughout your pregnancy. If you choose to place your child up for adoption, you will receive temporary housing, transportation to doctor’s appointments, medical coverage, as well as food and other utilities you may need help covering throughout your pregnancy.

For whatever reason, you have felt the need to put your child up for adoption, whether it be anything from financial reasons to even wanting to be a mother at all. Adoption Choices of Arizona understand the importance of these reasons. Being a good parent does not just mean devotion to your child, but doing what you need to do for yourself. If raising and caring for your child is something you are unable to do, know that adoption is a great way to find your child a caring family while allowing you to focus on yourself and allow you to do what you need and want to do.
