What if the Adoptive Family doesn’t Love my Baby as their Own?

By Kaitlyn Chrisemer

One concern many birth mothers have about adoption is that the adoptive family won’t love their child as their own. If you’re wondering about adoption for your baby in Texas, our agencies are here to help. We will address all of your concerns and help you decide what the best path for you is. Adoption Choices of Texas especially wants to ensure you feel comfortable throughout the adoption process. You can be as involved in the decision-making process as you want. It’s common to worry that your baby won’t be fully part of the adoptive family. However, we help calm your worries if you are thinking, what if the adoptive family doesn’t love my baby as their own?

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.

The Matching Process with Adoption Choices of Texas

Our adoption agencies will make sure that you are happy with the adoptive family your child will be raised. Part of the making of your adoption plan is the matching process. We can work with you to find a family you’re comfortable with and trust to take care of the baby. You can look through pictures, information, and paperwork of prospective families and decide who you think is the best match. You have the right, if you want, to determine which adoptive family you want your baby to be matched with.

The adoptive family selection is up to your discretion. For example, if you want your baby to be raised by an LGBTQ+ couple, we have same-sex couples hoping to adopt. On the other hand, you might want your child to be raised by a single parent. Our agencies are in contact with many responsible, single people looking to adopt. If you want a specific family situation for your child, we can show you options that fit your criteria.

As the birth mother, being involved in the matching process can help stop fears from arising. If you select the adoptive family, you’re less likely to worry about whether your child will be cared for. Our adoption agencies want to make sure you don’t feel rushed. You are in control of this situation and will not be judged or pushed into certain decisions. We are here to help and support you in your journey.

Will the Adoptive Family Love the Child as Their Own?

Numerous prospective adoptive families are hoping to adopt a child in Texas. These people wouldn’t be looking to adopt if they didn’t plan to love the child as their own. They will care for and accept the baby as their own because, after finalization, they will be their own. Biology only makes people family to a certain extent. But, the majority of the bond is love. Families come in all different forms, and families won’t love adopted children any less than they would love biological children.

These prospective adoptive families go through their own adoption process. They must first undergo screening and assessments to see if they are suitable to be parents. Next, adoption counselors talk to them about why they are looking to adopt and go over all the necessary paperwork. These families then go through the matching process. There can also be ups and downs on the side of the adoptive family. If these people didn’t plan to love and accept a child as their own, they wouldn’t make it through this process.

Plus, again, as the birth mother, you can select the adoptive family if you want. This ensures that you’re comfortable with the placement. Believing that your child will be in a loving home is important in finding closure after finalization. Selecting a family, you trust to love your child as their own can help you move on more easily.
