Many women feel like abortion is their only option, but know you have more than one pregnancy option. When navigating an unplanned pregnancy, you are not alone as you make this difficult choice.
At Pathway to Hope, talk in a safe and non-judgmental environment about all your options. In this blog, we share your other two pregnancy choices besides abortion.
Remember, no one can pressure you into any type of decision for your pregnancy. You have the final say.
What Option is Right for You?
You may not know the answer to this question quite yet and that’s ok. Do your best to take a step back from the pressures around you and think about what you want, as you are the one who will be the most impacted by your decision.
You owe it to yourself to look over and talk through all your options: abortion, adoption, and parenting. Confide in someone you trust after thinking it through on your own. Talk to someone you can trust and who won’t pressure you into any decision.
What is Adoption Like?
You could be exploring the option of adoption. Due to life circumstances, some women find adoption as a good fit for them. There are multiple types of adoption options that can be tailored to your situation, including:
- Open Adoption: This option allows for open communication and contact between you, the child, and the adoptive family you choose.
- Semi-Open Adoption: This choice allows communication between you, the child, and the adoptive family to occur through a third party who helps regulate contact. You have complete control of how much communication you take part in.
- Closed Adoption: This option provides complete confidentiality and allows you to remain anonymous, including legally sealing identifying documents.
Parenting can seem like a scary word. While it may seem daunting, just like any decision, with the right support it’s not impossible. Feeling inadequate or unprepared is normal as you’ve never gone about this journey before.
