At ACI, we never say “giving up” a child for adoption. Obviously, this phrase does not acknowledge all the thought and consideration that goes into making this decision. Instead we say “placing a child for adoption”. We recognize there are many factors that go into thinking about choosing whether or not to place your child for adoption.
