Yeah, but open adoption is the best bet so you can still be in their life!

You can give a child up for adoption all the way up until 17 years and 360 days, so 4 years old shouldn't be a problem. It's better if you find a family yourself though, if you put him in the system he or she will likely be in the system forever.

If you want a same day option, you can contact your local department of family and children services and explain to them that you can no longer care for your child, and your intentions. The will, in most cases, come pick the child up same day. There are many families who pray for a child everyday, and would make good parents for a child. i feel your child would go to the right family. Good luck.

Yes you are able to do something like this, there are many fine people in this world who are looking to adopt young children I have known many of them I was in foster care when I was younger, so yeah. But I was not up for adoption. If someone you know wants to put their child up for adoption, go to the county health department, or department of human services and they can help with this problem. When I was in foster care there were 2 little girls I helped take care of that were up for adoption, they were 2 and 3 years old anyways if I were a little older at that time, I would've adopted those girls, because they were just wonderful and I don't understand why their parents didn't want them anymore. I know their adopted parents now and those girls are ding so good with their 2 parents that love and take care of them so good.

yeah if you wanna screw her up forever. is that photograph of the child u plan to abandon? there are other ways to deal with ur situation. dont give her up for adoption.

i cant BELIEVE some of the answers on here!!! she is 4 years old! imagine what this will do to her?! and not many childless couples want a 4 year old, they will hold out and wait for a baby. u will ruin her life if u do this to her. i promise u that.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



scrumpkin
Seriously? I hope this is just a hypothetical question. To abandon a kid at 4 years old is a great way to totally **** them up for life, but yep- you can do it. Unless you are somehow abusing this child, you must be a complete monster to surrender them to CPS. Has the whole world gone crazy?!

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

BS! That someone doesn't have the "means" to keep and raise their own child. There are plenty of County, State and Fed govt programs to assist mothers who have fallen on hard times. Hard times don't last forever...but adoption does! Do the right thing...get the help you need for yourself and your 4 yr old...it's out there. If you can ask questions on YA...you certainly can find the information that will garner help for you and your child.
