There are all types of reasons you may not want an abortion. You may have had a bad experience, or maybe it just didn’t feel right.

No matter the reason, know that your feelings are valid and there are other options available to you if you’re unexpectedly pregnant.

While both these options require you to carry your pregnancy to full term, adoption and parenting can be rewarding experiences that can help you avoid another abortion. Keep reading to learn more.

Choosing Adoption

While challenging, choosing adoption can offer the sense of resolution you’re looking for. Being aware that your child is in a caring, supportive home can provide peace of mind as a birth parent.

You have greater influence over the adoption process than you might realize.

These days, there are a variety of adoption arrangements available, each designed to accommodate your unique situation:

  • Open Adoption: Open adoption allows you to select the adoptive parents and establish a connection with both them and your child. Ongoing communication via letters, phone calls, or visits is possible. This is the most common type of adoption.
  • Semi-Open Adoption: In this arrangement, you can maintain a relationship with the adoptive family, but a third party, such as an attorney or adoption agency, mediates all communication.
  • Closed Adoption: For those seeking maximum privacy, closed adoption is an option. Your identity remains confidential, and there is no direct communication between you and the adoptive family.

Considering adoption? Life Options Clinic is here to discuss this option with you. We offer one-on-one discussions about adoption and provide referrals to trusted agencies. We also share information on resources and support available to you as a birth parent.

Becoming A Parent

Parenting could seem like something you’re not ready for. However, it’s a very common way to feel. On some level, no one is ever fully prepared to parent, but you also may underestimate your natural ability to be a caregiver.

You can do so much to prepare for such a rewarding endeavor. You can access lots of information online these days to equip you for parenting challenges.

Furthermore, you can take classes from Life Options Clinic that can give you direct learning opportunities before and after birth so you can continue growing as a parent. We also offer material assistance simply for taking our classes, where you can get baby clothes, toys, diapers, maternity clothing, and more.
