  • Hi there, I almost did this for a friend of mine. It was a very hard decision and in the end she ended up pregnant. So I was off the hook. Now I have three kids and have no interest in having more so I thought that I was a good candidate. I thought realistically about how I would feel giving up a baby I carried and knew it would be hard. But I guess you need to think about why you are doing it, what is going to happen to your body and your emotions. I called my OB and talked to them they gave me some names of groups to talk to in the area. I would recommend starting there.
    Good luck!

  • I do not think I could give a baby up to a stranger because it would hurt too badly, but maybe if a relative or friend needed me.

    Thank God for moms who do give their babies up for adoption because the parents wanting a baby are so blessed. Have you seen (the movie) JUNO?
