When people hear the term “birth parent” they often only think about the birth mother, but forget that the term represents birth father as well. Promiscuous, lazy, irresponsible, careless, abusive, careless, deadbeat, irrelevant, M.I.A- are often the adjectives and terms that pop into peoples heads when someone says “birth father.” Unfortunately these stereotypes formed from years of statistics and recurring trends in open adoption. The media and pop culture regularly incorporate the stereotypes about birth fathers in their storylines. Here’s a question AFTH has for reporters and screenwriters, have you met every single birth father out there? The obvious answer is “NO.”
The baby is an offspring of both the birth mother AND birth father. In recent years about a ¼ of open adoptions involve both the birth mother and father equally involved in the adoption plan. These men want the best for their children just like the birth mothers. At Adoptions From The Heart we heavily encourage birth fathers to be a part of the adoption. Expecting fathers and birth fathers will always be acknowledged, heard and informed by our agency.
Here is all the literature created by our agency detailing birth father rights and our services:
