If you’re an adoptive parent or unexpectedly pregnant, resolve to give yourself grace
Our Texas adoption agency is a faith-based modern adoption agency. We believe in grace and unconditional love for adoptive parents and those who are unexpectedly pregnant. Like any momentous journey, adoption is filled with both complicated emotions. As a result, being kind to yourself is vital during and after modern adoption, so resolve to give yourself grace.
For those who are unexpectedly pregnant, grace is about self-forgiveness and self-love
If you are like many of our pregnant mothers, you may feel scared, confused and even angry. You may be beating yourself up for “making the mistake” of getting pregnant before you were prepared to raise a child. We urge you to talk to our counselors about how to forgive yourself. You need to remind yourself of the good things you are doing.
- You love your baby enough to want the best for their life. You want your baby to have the advantages of a loving and caring family who is fully prepared to raise a child.
- You are unselfish enough to share the most precious gift of all with a couple who desperately wants to grow their family.
- You are showing a great deal of maturity and selflessness by making the decision that is best for your future and your baby’s future.
If you are having trouble loving yourself, talk to our professional counselors. They can help you deal with the emotions that occur when you’re unexpectedly pregnant.
Adoptive parents learn about grace during modern adoption
As adoptive parents, you may feel guilty because you cannot give birth to a child. You may also experience guilt because you’re afraid you’re depriving a pregnant mom of her child.
At our Texas adoption agency, we offer open adoptions that allow pregnant parents and adoptive parents to decide how much contact there is between the baby and the woman who gave birth. Allowing contact and updates requires adoptive parents to extend grace to pregnant moms. Grace also means being kind to yourself as you deal with all the emotions you feel.
When you resolve to give yourself grace, your heart welcomes love in
Whether you are unexpectedly pregnant or an adoptive parent, resolve to give yourself grace. Once you treat yourself with kindness and acceptance, your heart will begin to heal and you will be open to new beginnings.
