Some Truths About Domestic Adoption

Truths About Birth Moms
  • Most birthmothers today are older than 18 years of age.
  • Some birthmothers are struggling to rear a first child and don't believe they can manage parenting a second child.
  • Birthmothers do care about their children - they care enough to know that they can't parent at this time and choose an adoption plan.
  • If a birth mom does not have insurance, she can often sign up for Medicaid to help them with the expense of carrying and delivering a baby.
Truths About Adoptees
  • Adoptees may be better adjusted than non-adopted peers.
  • Adopted adolescents have a positive self-image and resolve identity concerns 'at rates as high or higher than their peers.'
Borrowed from The Truth About Domestic Adoption, a article by Eliza Newlin Carney.
