You may decide to make an adoption plan for your child. Each year over 50,000 women in America make this choice. This loving decision is often made by women who first thought abortion was their only way out.
Thinking you are not ready for a baby is not wrong. You may still be in school, or just starting a new relationship when you get pregnant… wherever you are in life, if you have decided that you are not ready to nurture and care for a child yet, adoption is the healthiest alternative for you and your baby. Adoption is not the “giving up” of a child, but rather it is providing a safe and healthy family for your baby that you cannot yet provide at this time in your life. Most birth-mothers are very happy with their decision, as are adoptive families and adopted children.
