Keep Your Baby
Keep Your Baby
Are you young, pregnant, poor, or single?
Do people put you down for being unmarried or young?
Are people telling you that your baby “deserves a two-parent family”?
Are you afraid that you won't be a good mother?
Do you feel pressured to "place" your baby for adoption?
The purpose of this site is to help mothers of all ages and walks of life who are feeling pressured to "place"
their babies for adoption. No matter what your age or financial circumstances, your pregnancy should be celebrated
and your motherhood supported.
Birthmother's Info states:
"Unplanned" Pregnancy: Consider the Consequences Before "Giving Up" Your Baby For Adoption
Adoption agencies and adoption attorneys claim that "everyone benefits" from infant adoption.
But if you or your unmarried daughter is pregnant, you may want to know the facts. How it will really
affect your daughter's emotional well-being over her lifetime to keep her baby or to "give up" her baby
for adoption. Will your grandchild really benefit from being cut off from family and raised by strangers?

helping those separated by adoption with over 400 adoption aearch and support groups world-wide. A
not-for-profit 501(c) 3 charity, Adoption Healing has adoption related literature, support groups,
healing weekends, conferences and a nightly chat. We are dedicated to helping people who have been
separated by adoption find each other. We are part of an international effort to preserve families,
open adoption records, and educate the public about adoption related issues
Transracial Abductees states:
We think this word sucks, but we like it better than interracial, interethnic,
international, or intercultural. We chose transracial because 1) we think it will help people
who are thinking about the racial politics of abduction find this website, 2) "trans" can
describe a crossing or transfer from one racial setting to another, and 3) "trans" can be
used to talk about a crossing or transfer between groups with unequal status and power. We
don't like transracial because it doesn't explicitly suggest racism. What we'd like to say is
transracist, but then people probably wouldn't find us.
Abduction is the word we like better than adoption. "Adoption" conceals the unequal power between
abductors and abductees, and in the abduction industry in general.
Mothers in Exile
Mothers in Exile states:
We were exiled from our babies NOT because we were proven unfit, but because we were vulnerable
(young, single, sick, or poor), and lied-to and coerced by social workers, doctors, lawyers, maternity
homes, and churches: brokers that made money from selling our babies to a market driven by "consumer" demand.
