Some people believe that love is enough – that this simple, yet complicated, four-letter word is enough to give your child the whole world and more. But, as a mother, we know it’s not as easy as “I love you” to give your child everything you want for them… to give your child everything they deserve. “I love you” doesn’t put a roof over their heads, it doesn’t put food on the table, and it doesn’t put fuel in the car to get them to school. It sometimes means doing the hardest, yet bravest, thing you could ever imagine, and knowing it is what’s best for your child. Sometimes the greatest “I LOVE YOU,” simply means choosing life for your child – whether it’s life with you or placing your child in another’s arms and entrusting the adoptive parents to give your child the life you so desperately wish for them.
At An Open Door Adoption Agency, we have counselors who are ready to walk with you through the tough decisions that come with every “I love you.” We have carefully screened, waiting families ready to welcome a new baby or child into their lives and homes. You, as the expecting mother, will have the opportunity to look through different families’ profiles and choose where you think is best for your baby. You get to choose how much contact you will have with your child and the adoptive family. You also get to choose whether it’s just too hard to make those decisions. This is likely the hardest decision you will ever have to make as your child’s mother.
If you decide to let An Open Door Adoption Agency assist you in making these decisions, your counselor will work for you based on the solid relationship you will build with her. Your counselor will walk with you through every step of the process. Whether you need someone to talk to, to hold your hand, a shoulder to cry on, or just someone to listen to you breathe, because, let’s be honest, sometimes there are just no words for what we’re feeling. We’re here for YOU!
Not only are we here for you throughout the adoption process, we are here for you post-placement as well. An Open Door is able to assist you financially, emotionally, and support you however you may need following the birth and placement of your child. All of us at An Open Door Adoption Agency care for you and we want you to know we are here for you. We believe you to be brave, selfless, and loving.
Throughout every simple, yet complicated, “I love you,” An Open Door will be here for you. We will walk with you and support you throughout your beautiful story of choosing life and adoption.
