Birth Mother Matters in Adoption Podcast, Season 2, Episode 129: Understanding Desperation in Adoption

Some Birth Mothers come into an adoption agency because they are pregnant, and many women have reached a point of desperation due to situations such as:

  1. Being Homeless; scared to remain on the street due to being pregnant, and they are hungry and cold/hot
  2. The pregnancy may be the result of an act of prostitution/solicitation or they may be a victim of abuse.
  3. Feeling trapped in a domestically violent relationship and wanting to make sure that they don’t bring a baby into their turbulent world.
  4. Pregnant as a result of an affair and they don’t want their significant other to find out (he may be incarcerated) or together they may not want to raise the baby together since the baby was conceived in an affair.
  5. Divorcing their spouse and they do not want to raise a baby under these circumstances.
  6. Finding out that they are pregnant and choose not to have an abortion and/or they find out too late in their pregnancy.  Maybe they don’t believe in abortion or cannot afford it?
