Faced with an unplanned pregnancy, you may feel your only options are abortion and parenting. This can be distressing if you don’t believe either of those choices are right for you. We are here to support you in considering a third option: adoption.

What can I keep in mind about adoption?

Ultimately, the decision is up to you. No one should be pressuring you into a decision that you are not comfortable with. That being said, there are plenty of diverse reasons why women choose adoption for their unplanned pregnancy.

Types of Adoption

Depending on the kind of relationship, if any, you would like to have with the child and the adoptive family, you can adapt your adoption plan to fit.

Open Adoption

An open adoption allows for you to stay connected with the child and the adoptive parents. This contact can include visitation, phone calls, letters, photos or regular updates. For women who would like to continue to be involved in the child’s life.

Closed Adoption

Closed adoption does not allow for any contact between you and the adoptive family. This can be a good option for women who feel as if that degree of separation is necessary for them to move on to the next chapter of their lives.
