Its Not Black or White

I recently overheard of an unwed mother who said that her choices were black or white. Either she had to have an abortion or raise her child as a single mother and be forced to keep a relationship with her child’s father for the rest of her life. I would like you to know that her choices (and your choices) are not black or white; there are a variety of colors in between. There are thousands of families, just like mine, longing to adopt. Adoption of today is far different than the adoption of yesterday. No longer are babies taken from their mother, and then given to strangers, never to be seen again. The birth mother has the absolute say in choosing the family her child will grow up in. She can choose from a wealth of hopeful adoptive parents, hand select, and meet, the family she chooses. Then, after placement there is an array of options on how much contact is had after placement; ranging from weekly visits to letters and cards. Adoption has many colors of the rainbow that gives you the opportunity to allow your child to grow and flourish. Your child has a right to life and you have the right to choose the course. Even if my family is not a good fit for your child, please visit www.itsaboutlove.org and consider whether adoption is right for you and your child. There you can browse profiles of families who are hoping to adopt. If you would like to know more about my family, you can read more at anothertolove.blogspot.com.
