Choosing Adoption in AZ While Homeless, Pregnant, and Abused
By Wendy Swisher
Dealing with abuse or being homeless is worrisome on its own. However, being pregnant and dealing with abuse or being homeless is much more overwhelming. The emotions of fear and stress can be too much at times. Not only do you need to worry about your own safety, but now you have a baby to add to the mix. You do not want your child to go through the uncertainty and stress you are dealing with. You are not sure who to turn to or what you should do. Maybe you even feel hopeless. Do not ever give up hope! Adoption may be a great option to consider in your situation.
As a birth mother, it is okay to consider adoption. You should not feel bad for doing what is right for your child. One fear most birth mothers have is being judged for their decision; being afraid people will think they are selfish or do not love your child. We know many factors may be included in your decision. Just know we are here to help and support you in any way we can.

Finding Adoption Counseling and Support System with Adoption Choices of Arizona
We understand the decision to place a baby for adoption is hard. It is not a decision you take lightly. Stressing over if you are making the right decision and how you are supposed to feel. Is it okay to be happy about adoption, or should you be upset? There is no right answer there. Your feelings are your own, and you should not be ashamed of them. That is why we offer supportive counseling for birth parents. Our counselors will help you with your feelings toward your decision and how to cope during and after the adoption. They are there for you because this is an extremely emotional time.
