Adoption is not a popular choice. When a woman faces an unplanned or crisis pregnancy she usually thinks she has just two choices, abortion or be a mom, even if she isn’t prepared. The truth is there are no easy choices. If you are visiting our site, you are probably struggling with your options. Our society presents abortion as a simple choice for a woman in crisis. It’s legal, but definitely not an easy choice. There are consequences to live with for a lifetime, whether it be emotional, physical, or spiritual. When you are not prepared, parenting is NOT an easy choice either. (Truthfully, parenting isn’t easy even when you are prepared ). Adoption is not an easy choice, it may be the hardest decision a woman will ever make. But what most people don’t understand is that Open Adoption brings joy to balance the loss and pain.
Adoption isn’t for everyone, but for some, it can be a loving option. We believe that when you have information and support you will be in a much better position to make the decision that is right for you and for your baby. The choices are entirely yours…you will never be judged or persuaded. Counseling is provided to you at no charge. You’re welcome to come to our birthparent groups where you can speak with others who have chosen adoption. Sometimes it helps to speak with someone who really understands. Or, maybe you’d like to get together and we’ll just talk. We are here to help. If you do decide adoption is best for you, we’ll be there to offer encouragement as well as personal and practical support. All our services are provided at no charge to you.
At the Adoption Center of San Diego you choose the adopting parents for your child. You can choose a family that shares your faith and values and meets your ideals, a family that shares your hobbies and interests. You have the opportunity to meet them, spend time together and build a relationship. You and the adopting parents will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and plans for future contact. You have the option to receive pictures, letters, calls or visits throughout the years. Financial assistance can be provided by the adoptive parents for pregnancy related expenses. Please take a few minutes to watch our video “Adoption-No Regrets”. It shows several of our Birthmothers and Adoptive Parents speaking about their adoption experience.
