Birth parents are the biological parents of the child. What brings birth parents to consider adoption? There are many reasons birth parents consider adoption, but all focus on the needs of the child and the birth parents’ belief that they cannot adequately meet these needs. Sometimes, birth parents consider this choice during pregnancy, while others may not consider this plan until after the child is born.Sometimes birth parents consider adoption because they realize, after parenting for a while, that their child needs more than they can provide.
Birth parents come from all walks of life. They range in age from young adolescents to mature adults. They come from a variety of religious and non-religious backgrounds, from all ethnicities and races, and incorporate a broad range of lifestyles. Birth parents are as different from one another as any group of people – what characterizes them is their loving and unselfish decision to consider the needs of their child beyond their own needs.
