When A Birthmother Asks Herself, “Is Parenting Right For Me Now?”

Many women question if they’re ready to be a mother. Some may question themselves because of financial constraints and others, because of their school or corporate careers. Some women dreamt of having children, just later on in life when they have a husband to welcome home with the smell of dinner wafting through the air. However, life gets complicated, people are complicated, and the future, especially in these ever-changing times we’re living in, seems so unpredictable. It’s hard to say what the future truly holds, and it’s even more so for the women who depend on the second line of that small device appearing or remaining blank. 

A few minutes to some may just be the mundane waiting of a traffic light after work ends, but to those women, those minutes could be the scariest and most pivotal moments of their lives. However, it doesn’t have to be so scary. Those few minutes you may feel so alone waiting in the bathroom, hoping that the man you’re with, or even your parents in the other room don’t find out about what’s really happening inside of you, doesn’t have to feel so solitary.

However, it doesn’t have to be so scary. Those few minutes you feel so alone waiting in the bathroom, hoping that the man you’re with, or even your parents in the other room don’t find out about what’s really happening inside you, doesn’t have to feel so solitary.

Everyone has their own story that unfolds day by day and their own battles no one knows about, and that certainly includes these women. Many women around the world are going through the very same things and it’s important to recognize those similarities to find hope rather than defeat.

Thankfully, there are wonderful options for those women who question if being a mother in their current life is really for them. There have been more options now than there have ever been before to ensure the best possible future for both the mother, and the child that grows inside of them.

Many couples dream of having children of their own, but are unable to due to infertility or other medical issues. Other couples may already have children of their own, and earnestly desire to grow their family and welcome in a new member with love and acceptance. No matter the reason, lots of loving parents and those who dream of becoming parents, would certainly love to take the baton of raising your precious child. 

That’s where adoption takes place. With adoption, the mother can rest assured knowing that the child will be in good, loving and nurturing hands of those very couples that want to share God’s love to the expected arriving little one.

Did you know that over 1.5 million children living in the US are adopted and 7 million American citizens come from adoptive homes? Around 140,000 children are adopted in the US each year and the number grows every year assuring that every child finds a loving home.

With Bundle of Hope, birthmothers can receive services for free including things as simple as transportation to your appointments or the much more needed help of financial assistance. On our website, you can take a look at testimonies of women just like you, as well as information on how to get started. Also, any questions you might have concerning this wonderful but sometimes confusing process can be answered in the ‘I’m Pregnant’ tab. 

Christian women might face concerns of their unborn child growing up in a home without God as the firm foundation of their home when using other adoption services. However, on top of the amazing support women can receive both financially and emotionally, they can even request to speak with the adoptive parents weekly to assure that it’s the right choice for them. Our philosophy is Christ-centered as it should be, meaning that each child is in safe hands just as our Father above does for us.

To those women who choose life, to those women who choose to follow through and carry the child growing inside of you into this world, I sincerely thank you. Know that the parents who gladly take on the responsibility of raising up your children are being abundantly blessed by your act of selfless love.

Please remember one thing above all when you may feel alone and things become too challenging—what seems like a mistake or lapse in judgment or timing, can become the greatest joy of another couple’s life. Those same frightening minutes for you, could turn into the most exciting minutes, full of anticipation, for an adoptive couple as they wait to find out if there is a child for them to meet and start their new lives as a family. May your child be placed right where they need to be, as they were rightly placed inside of you.
