People Involved in Your Adoption

You are the only person who can decide what is best for you and your baby, and you are ultimately in control of your adoption plan — but that doesn’t mean you should have to go it alone.

While it can sometimes be scary to tell friends, family members, coworkers, counselors, teachers, and even your baby’s father about your adoption plan, it is important for prospective birth mothers to have a trusted support system to lean on through the adoption process.

This section provides tips for how to tell others about your adoption decision and include them on your adoption team, as well as information about your baby’s birth father and advice for those who are reluctant to disclose their pregnancy and adoption plan.
