Birth Father Situations
Supportive Birth Fathers
Are you in a situation in which the father of your baby is supportive of you and your decision to place your baby for adoption? If so, realize that you are in a special situation. Often times birth fathers can be unsupportive and disapproving of an unplanned pregnancy and the decision of adoption. If the birth father is involved and supportive, allow him to support you and be a part of this process with you. You both will surely experience many emotions throughout this process and you can be supportive of each other along the way.
Unsupportive Birth Fathers
If you find yourself in a situation in which the birth father is unsupportive or disapproving of your unplanned pregnancy and decision of adoption, then just know that this is very common. There are many other women who also find themselves in this kind of situation. Many times, women will choose to place their baby for the very reason of not having the support of the birth father. Sometimes birth fathers are simply unfamiliar with the adoption process. We can certainly help educate him on what he can expect through the process as well as answer any questions he may have.
