Unsure of how your family and friends will react to your decision to create an adoption
plan? You may encounter some pushback from friends and family members who don’t quite
understand your choice. This can be very discouraging, but there are ways to deal with
the pain that comes with unsupportive loved ones. Adoption Network has resources to help
both Birth Mothers deal with telling their family and friends, as well as advice on how
to handle any less than helpful reactions you may receive.
