Choosing Adoption with a Supportive Birth Father

How the Birth Father Can be a Strong Support System 

Whether you are giving a baby up for adoption while married, in a long-term relationship or have support from an uninvolved birth father, finding your baby a loving home with consent and cooperation from his or her birth father has a profoundly positive impact on the adoption process. 

Can a woman give her baby up for adoption if the birth father is still involved?  

The answer is yes! Adoption is a decision that many married couples or birth parents in a long-term relationship conclude is the best option for their child. 

Even if the birth father isn’t an active participant in your life, his support in choosing adoption helps create a better future for everyone involved and helps alleviate at least some of the emotions of the adoption process

This article will provide information on adoption, the role of the birth father and how a cooperative effort helps lead to finding the perfect adoptive family for your child.

Married Couple Giving a Baby Up for Adoption 

If you’re married and want to give a baby up for adoption, maybe it’s because you’ve decided your circumstances don’t allow for parenting or the two of you just aren’t ready to be parents.    

Giving a baby up for adoption while married can be a difficult decision, but taking the time to assess your current situation and whether you’re able to provide for your child is ultimately the most important decision you can make. 

Giving a child up for adoption when married doesn’t mean you are “giving up” on them. You are making a loving and heroic decision to find an adoptive family and home that is better suited for your child living his or her best life. Having the birth father’s support throughout the adoption process can help you as you work through your emotions and can simplify the legal proceedings of the adoption. 

Supportive and Involved Birth Father’s [You Can Help Find the Perfect Adoptive Family] 

There is little doubt that during the adoption process, having the support and involvement of the birth father strengthens emotional stability and gives you a partner to lean on. 

In many cases, a birth father may be completely unaware that by being active and involved in the adoption, he can have a say in what type of family you ultimately choose for your baby, including specific personality traits the two of you feel are important. 

With any difficult decision, having a teammate, regardless of your relationship status, can be helpful. For married couples giving a baby up for adoption, you’re reaching this decision together, understanding that parenting isn’t possible at this time. 

If you and the birth father are in a relationship, not married and aren’t sure whether marriage is in your future, unplanned pregnancy and the prospect of parenting can be too much responsibility.
