Talking to the birth father about adoption while you are exploring your options
If you have just discovered you are unexpectedly pregnant, you are probably scared and confused. If you have a good relationship with the baby’s birth father, you can include him as you explore your options. You can bring him with you to our Texas adoption agency so that we can explain how modern adoption works.
Discussing your adoption plan after you have decided to place your baby for adoption
If you have already made your adoption plan, you need to talk to your birth father about your decision. Here are some tips.
If you feel comfortable, try talking to the birth father about adoption in person. If that isn’t possible, make a phone call. If you do not feel comfortable speaking to him, ask someone at our agency to speak to him for you.
Calmly discuss the subject. Talk about the reasons you have chosen to place your baby for adoption with a loving family.
Ask him how he feels about your plan to deal with your unplanned pregnancy and listen to his concerns.
Invite him to talk to the counselors at our agency. They can provide support and important information. For example, he may not know that modern adoption practices allow the two of you to choose to receive updates about your child, photos or even have some contact with him or her. Our staff can explain how the process works.
