No, placing for adoption is one of the bravest things a mother will ever do. Sometimes the best decision a mother can make for her child is to choose a family to provide for her baby in a way that she is not able. She temporarily sets aside her needs for what she believes are in the best interests of the child. That’s not abandoning your child – that’s called being a mother (strong, brave, loving, selfless, responsible). We think this video sums it up well.
