You must first determine if your inability to provide for another child will last for the foreseeable future or only for a short time? If you only need a few days or a couple of weeks to be in a position to parent your child, then a family member or close friend may be able to help you out. Additionally, you might find a local adoption agency that would assume temporary foster care of your child.
On the other hand, if you expect your situation to continue indefinitely, you need to explore a more permanent option for your soon-to-be-born or newborn baby. While a friend or family member may be willing to take care of your child for a long period of time, it is unlikely that they will readily relinquish custody of the child back to you after having acted as your child’s parent for several months or years. Frankly, you also need to consider the impact on your child if you were to remove your child from the only home the child has known for any length of time.
An option that would give your child a secure, permanent home, with loving, devoted parents, and the opportunity to realize her or his full potential while giving you the ability to focus your attention on the children you already have is to put the baby up for adoption, or more correctly, to make an adoption plan for your precious child by contacting adoption professionals like Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”), a local adoption agency, or national adoption agency.

We cannot make adoption an easy choice, but we can make it less scary by removing some of the unknowns. Ultimately, a birth parent will have to decide if adoption is in their own best interests and the best interests of their child. We, at Kirsh & Kirsh, will not and cannot make that decision for anyone, but we can provide information and answers to questions – that way, you can make a well-informed decision.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant moms’ search results in Google.
