Why should I consider adoption?
Adoption does not mean you are giving your baby away. What it does mean is that you are offering your baby a life, a family, and a future. No matter how far along you are, an unexpected pregnancy can make you feel like you are stuck. However, you do have options, and adoption can allow something truly beautiful to come from a difficult situation. Adoption might be right for you if any of the following are true:
- You are not financially secure enough to raise a child
- You lack an effective emotional support system
- You don’t want to have an abortion but aren’t ready to parent
- You are too young to be a parent
- You want to focus on school or your career
Will my child be cared for if he or she is adopted?
Some women wonder if their child will be well cared for and loved in an adoptive family’s home. The truth is that many adoptive couples and families desire children, and so adopted kids are dearly treasured. According to American Adoption, 9 out of 10 adoptive couples say the relationship they have with their adopted child is “very close,” and over 90 percent of adopted children above the age of 5 have positive feelings about their adoption.
It takes courage to seek out each of the options and truly consider them for your unexpected pregnancy.
