The first thing to know about adoption is that a lot has changed and it may not be what you think it is. Today the adoption process empowers the birthmother with countless choices. A woman conserving this option is able to choose the family, where they lives, how many kids are in the family, religious background, economic level – whatever is important to her. Family options are endless. There is an estimated 2 million families waiting each year to adopt. In most instances there is no cost to the birthmother.

This is a choice that you need to think about carefully, but if you cannot parent, no matter what the reason, adoption may be the right choice for you. HCW would like to help you research this as an option for you.
