Is Adoption an Option When You’re Pregnant and Addicted?

You aren’t sure how it happened. Truth be told, you may not remember much about that night or the morning after. Bits and pieces, if any. But, the pregnancy test in front of you reveals a whole different perspective. A truth that will change your life forever.  

After the initial shock wears off, you know that you aren’t ready to raise a child. That you may not want to be a parent at all. A child doesn’t fit into your life, and you feel that he or she deserves better. Something more stable. But where do you begin? Is adoption an option when you’re pregnant and addicted? Are there families out there who would welcome your baby into their home? Especially if they knew about you and your history?

In short — yes! Adoption Choices of Texas works with pregnant women and adoptive parents from all walks of life. We will never turn you away, no matter what your circumstances. If you know that placing your baby for adoption is the best choice of both of you, we are here to help you.

If you need help with adoption now, you can call us at 888-307-3340, text us at 888-307-3340, or email us here.

Why Choose Adoption When You’re Pregnant and Addicted?

Adoption is a brave and selfless act. It is doing what is best for the baby and yourself, as it allows the baby to be with an adoptive family who is able to provide for the baby’s needs. It also gives you the time to care for yourself and seek treatment. Adoption is not, or is it ever, giving up your baby. 

There is no shame in admitting you want the best for your child, even if that means it’s not with you. There is also no need to fear that you will be judged or made to feel guilty about your decision. You will never be in trouble if you come to us, and you will be treated with nothing but the utmost respect, support and compassion. 

Choosing adoption means you are prioritizing your child. 

Are There Adoptive Families willing to Adopt a Drug-Addicted Baby?

If you are struggling with an addiction and considering adoption, it is natural to wonder about whether or not an adoptive family would welcome your baby into their home. To feel anxious about the potential of being judged or looked on differently. Yet, we have good news for you! Through our adoption agency, this will never be an issue. All of our prospective adoptive families are carefully screened and vetted to ensure that they are fully prepared to raise and love your child, no matter what. These eagerly waiting adoptive families care more about giving your child the best life possible than specific circumstances. They are made aware, however, about the potential that the baby may have been exposed to drugs and alcohol and ready to handle that when the time comes.

Be sure to consult with your doctor and healthcare team if you have any concerns or questions about the potential risks your baby may experience throughout your pregnancy. They will be your best resource for this, and will have the resources you need to have a healthy and safe pregnancy for the good of you and your baby.
