Guest posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsIf you are a pregnant woman considering adoption for your child, it’s reasonable to assume that you’re at a stressful point in your life. Maybe you don’t believe you can give your baby the life he or she deserves, or maybe you just don’t wish to be a parent at this time. Whatever the reason, one factor may in particular may be causing you stress at this point, and that’s finding the perfect family to raise your child.

Many women who are looking for a Jehovah’s Witness family to adopt a baby do so because it’s important to them that their child be raised with some of the following principles that aren’t frequently practiced by other religions: The family does not accept blood transfusions. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that both the Old and New Testaments say to abstain from taking blood and go to doctors who are able to practice medicine and surgery without giving blood transfusions.

Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that dating should only be for those old enough for marriage, that Witnesses should only date baptized Witnesses, and that sexual immorality or “unclean” behavior should be avoided. Couples should also avoid being alone in tempting situations. The family believes that the dead are unconscious. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that someone who dies ceases to exist, although resurrection from God is possible. The family does not celebrate birthdays or holidays like Christmas or Easter. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that birthday celebrations displease God, and that Christmas and Eastercelebrations do not align with Biblical teachings. Read more:
