Friends And Family

Unsure of how your family and friends will react to your decision to adopt? Whether you’re considering placing your child for adoption, or are considering adopting a child, 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 and prospective Adoptive Parents deal with telling their family and friends, as well as advice on how to handle any less than helpful reactions you may receive.
