Top 10 Fear Birth Mothers Have About Open Adoption

It’s very common for you, or any other birth mother, to be hesitant when giving up your baby for adoption. Adoption isn’t an easy choice, but it’s a brave choice. A choice that is made out of love and a caring heart. When it comes to open adoption, there are a lot of common fears birth mothers (like you) share. So, we listed the top ten fears about open adoption, that goes as follows:

1. The adoptive families won’t let you be involved.

2. The child will grow up to think negatively of you, the birth mother.

3. The adoptive family won’t love or care for your child.

4. You won’t be able to properly heal from the emotional pain and sadness of adopting out your baby.

5. You’ll end up raising your child instead of the adoptive family.

6. Scared of being rejected by your child when trying to bond.

7. Not being able to openly communicate about your child (either too much or too little).

8. Worried about how it will affect you when you’re ready to have a family of your own.

9. Boundaries that are set might be looked over or crossed.

10. Your child might go through a family identity crisis as they grow older.

Understanding and Accepting Your Adoption Fears

These are all valid fears when it comes to considering open adoption in Florida or anywhere. At Adoption Choices of Florida, we make sure that open adoption is carefully set up and agreed upon by both you and the adoptive family. At our agency, you can exchange information with the adoptive family. You can remain as little or as much involved as you feel comfortable.

After all, the open adoption and the boundaries you set are up to you, along with choosing the adoptive family you want. When it comes to the emotional side of open adoption, we provide counseling; to help you heal and process the adoption. If you still feel like an open adoption isn’t for you, that’s okay. There are still two adoption options you can choose from that will fit the adopted plan you created uniquely for you and your child. Those options are semi-open adoption and closed adoption. Remember, you have control over your adoption journey, and we will support you through any decision.
