You are probably inclined to complete the title with “…for the baby.” Indeed, this is a process that seeks the best option for the baby. But, in perspective, this is also a process that emotionally affects the birth mother too.
Positively, if your motivations are the right ones.
So, we will expand our title by explaining why “giving my baby for adoption” is the best decision not only for the baby but also for you, the birth mother.

Perhaps you are already working with a licensed adoption agency and have already picked a pre-screened adoptive family that will take your baby once he or she is born. The adoptive family has gone through an extensive background and criminal check and you believe they are the best fit. This is a good thing because it shows that you care.
