Meeting with a pregnant woman to discuss the adoption of her unborn baby

1. I live in a very small town 2. She has two children who were removed from the home by state. 3. I was recommended by a friend who knows I have been TTC for a few years now. I am extremely emotional and trying to figure out the best approach. What do I need to know? How do I ask? What are some things you would recommend?

Fill free to message me. I adopted my son at birth and only knew her from someone else. Now his bio mom and I are close and still message. My son is 14 months now.

I think your first question should be why adoption. Ask about dad, extended family members, friends who might be able to keep the child with their family. Is there a possibility of reunification for the children removed from her care. Try to find out if she would prefer to parent her child and if there is anything you can do to assist. Adoption is not always roses and butterflies as there is a whole lot of trauma that needs to be understood by both biological and adopted parents. If a person wishes to mother the best thing to do is support her rather than convince her that adoption is a better alternative. Good luck
