I am a birth father……………
I’m writing this letter because I had no letter to read when I went through this. Adoption is nothing to be scared of, it’s not the 1950’s it’s 2013 and its totally different than back in the day. Open adoption is amazing and magical.
In 2009 my girlfriend and I, at the time, placed our daughter through Geri Glazer’s adoptionagency.
Being involved in the adoption process is as much our right and responsibility as a birthfather as it is the birthmother’s. I personally received lots of negative flack and rude comments even from my own family. Placing a child is the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life, but it has turned out to also be the greatest thing I have done, too.
Adoption doesn’t mean you’re throwing away your baby or that you don’t care,just the opposite. It just means that you deeply care for the child and you want him or her to have a great start in life one you just can’t give them right now. You can’t play Russian roulette with your kid, you need to put them first before any of your own wants or needs. Babies come with their own needs and they have to come first.
Many people will view you as a dead beat dadbut that’s just not the case. You will not be judged in any way shape or form in the eyes of the adoptive family,trust me I know what I’m talking about.
You are making a courageous jump! This decision will likely be the most unselfish act that you have ever committed in your life.
