At ACI, for instance, we never say “giving up” or “putting up” a child for adoption. Firstly, when someone is considering adoption, they are not “giving up” anything. Secondly, these are old phrases used a long time ago. They do not acknowledge all the thought and consideration that goes into making this decision. Instead, we say “placing a child for adoption”. We feel it should be recognized that there are many factors that go into someone thinking about choosing whether or not to place their child for adoption.
