If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, deciding what to do next can be difficult and even scary. You have three options to consider: abortion, adoption, or parenting. Each choice brings challenges, but we are here to help you make your best decision.
For some women, abortion seems like the easiest and quickest option. Before you make an abortion decision, you will want to consider the health risks and emotional challenges that may occur with an abortion. You have time to make an informed choice. Many of our peer counselors have been in your situation and are available to discuss your circumstances and explain your abortion options.
Creating an adoption plan can give you the comfort of knowing your child will be loved and cared for. You can meet and choose a couple to be your child’s parents and determine the amount of contact you would like to have with your child. In today’s adoptions, you can still be a part of your child’s life. We are here to help you understand your adoption options as you plan for your child’s future.
You may feel unprepared for parenting or overwhelmed by the idea of caring for a baby. There are many questions you will need to answer as you consider how parenting will change your life. We are here to help you decide if parenting is the best choice for you and to connect you with parenting resources in your community.
