You have more than one option when it comes to your unexpected pregnancy. Your other options besides abortion are adoption and parenting. We want to help inform you better so you can make an informed decision for your pregnancy.
Adoption: What Do I Need To Know?
Adoption may seem daunting, especially if you need clarification on how the process works. It can undoubtedly be an emotional decision, but with the proper support, you may find a lot of joy in choosing this option.
Nowadays, a variety of plans are available to women, and they can choose the one that best fits their lifestyle:
- Open adoption: This option allows a woman control over the process, from choosing the adoptive parents to forming a relationship with the child and family. This can give women peace of mind and the satisfaction of bonding with their child.
- Semi-open adoption: With this form of adoption, the woman has contact with the adoptive family, but it is conducted through an adoption agency or attorney.
- Closed adoption: A closed adoption allows for the most privacy. All adoption records are sealed, and the woman remains anonymous.
We can help you learn more about the adoption option, including the resources and financial assistance available.
