Positive Adoption Language
Positive adoption language refers to the use of inclusive and respectful terminology when discussing adoption and individuals who have been adopted, who have placed a child for adoption, and/or who have adopted.
Using positive adoption language means avoiding stigmatizing or negative words that may perpetuate stereotypes or undermine the challenges associated with adoption.
Some negative language might include: give up baby/child for adoption, put up baby/child for adoption, or real mom. Instead, we promote positive language like place baby/child for adoption, birth mother, and make an adoption plan.
By using positive adoption language, we can create a more inclusive and supportive environment for all those involved in the adoption community.

What is adoption?
Adoption is a formal process organized by adoption agencies and local authorities, and made legal by the courts. It is a choice that birth mothers/parents are able to make when they know that parenting their child nor terminating the pregnancy are the right choice for them.
Adoption is a way of providing the security, love, and permanence of a family to your child. Through the adoption journey, you will continue with the pregnancy and give birth, but you won’t look after the baby, and you won’t have legal rights or responsibilities regarding the child once the adoption is complete.
When a woman chooses adoption for her baby, it’s a sacrifice she makes to give her baby the best opportunity at life. Open adoption allows birth parents to watch their children grow up through pictures, emails, letters, and social media. However, closed adoption is also still an option.
