I am pregnant.... Now what?
Many women who experience an unplanned pregnancy do not want to consider adoption.
We understand that you may not think that adoption is a good option. We want you to know that some of feelings and questions women have are normal and we are here to help you understand them and make decisions.
These are some of the common fears we hear that centers around an unplanned pregnancy.
It would be too sad for me to give my child up for adoption.
It is normal to feel sad about the decision you will need to make in regards to your unplanned pregnancy options. Making a decision to make an adoption plan for your unborn child after bonding with and carrying them for nine months will obviously be difficult –but there is also the positive impact your decisions will have on many lives including your own. You can feel empowered knowing that you made a responsible decision for your child. When you consider your options and make the decision of adoption you can look back on it and know you made an educated decision the centers around your unplanned pregnancy. You can also have confidence that you have chosen a family who can give the care you desire for your child. The choice of adoption can have a positive impact on you too, and it gives you the freedom to pursue your dreams.
I feel I need to take responsibility for my own actions.
Placing a child for adoption is not avoiding responsibility. Evaluating the choices for your unplanned pregnancy and child is very mature and shows responsibility. There are many things to consider when making your decision: your financial situation and future, family support, educational possibilities, stability in relationships, commitments to and from the baby’s father and your long-term chances for successful parenting. You will be able to choose a family that will be able to give your child the ideal upbringing you want. Doing that is showing a tremendous amount of responsibility.
How will I know that my baby will be happy?
Life does not come with guarantees for anyone. But you can make decisions that offer your child opportunities. You will be able to choose the family that adopts your child. You will be presented with prospective adoptive parent profiles that tell you about who they are and what adopting your child would mean to them. They will have the financial means and social resources to give your child the best life possible. You can meet the family and agree on the adoption terms you want including communication, contact and your ability to stay informed about your child.
My family will not support my decision about my unwanted pregnancy and my adoption plan.
Family traditions can be important and a strong part of your family. It takes courage to make a decision to go against the expectations of your family. Adoption may be a choice family members have difficulty accepting - but you need to make a choice based on the care of your child, not what your family wants. Children have daily needs that need to be met throughout their development. You’ll need to make a decision about whether or not you can meet those needs based on your current circumstances and the support you have in your life. If you feel that adoption would give these things to your child, then this is what you should choose. You have to make a choice that is best for you and your baby, not what is best for your family. Our social workers can also talk to your family and offer them counseling also.
My friends know about my unplanned pregnancy and think I should keep the baby.
Your friends may feel that keeping the baby is what is best for you. But you need to think about “What is best for my child?” Becoming a mother will change your life dramatically. Your friends will not share in the commitment and financial responsibility it requires to raise and care for your child. Your friends will have different priorities than you. They have their own plans for their future and cannot commit to always live nearby or to help you. Neither will they be willing to give up a date with a boyfriend to babysit so you can go out. While the emotional support of friends is great, their input should not be considered in your decision. They should be supportive of you and the choices you make. Your decision on your unplanned pregnancy should be your personal decision.
