No-Cost and Confidential Women's Center

If you’ve had an abortion, it’s understandable that you don’t want another one. Whether you experienced physical or mental health complications, abortion can be a traumatic experience that many women want to avoid facing again.

If you’re unexpectedly pregnant again, it’s essential to know that you have options other than abortion. These options include parenting and making an adoption plan. 

This article will cover the essentials you need to know about parenting and adoption. But if you want to talk to someone about your pregnancy or learn about free resources to help, contact Choose Hope Women’s Center today to schedule a free, confidential appointment. 

Is Parenting Right for Me?

Parenting might feel impossible, given your current circumstances. But what if those circumstances—like your living situation and financial instability—were different? Would you want to parent? If so, parenting might be the best option.

When deciding whether parenting is right for you, the most foundational question is this: Do I want to parent? Do I have a heart to parent? 

Even If you have a small desire to parent, it is possible—and circumstances change. By taking small steps in the right direction (like finishing school, getting a higher-paying job, etc.), your life will one day look completely different.

At Choose Hope Women’s Center, we offer free parenting resources, like educational opportunities and material assistance, to help you have what you need to pursue your goals while parenting. Are you curious if parenting is possible in your situation? Contact us today to learn more.

Is Adoption Right for Me?

Placing your child for adoption might be the right choice if parenting is out of the question. Adoption is a selfless act that gives your child a brighter future. 

Today’s adoption process gives you complete control over the life you want for your child. For example, do you want your child to have a huge family? Pets? A particular religious upbringing or access to different sports/hobbies? You decide.

When you choose adoption, you will work closely with an adoption agency or attorney to determine your goals and desires. With open adoption, for example, you can decide if you want to have open communication with the adoptive family and your child and in what ways. 

It costs you nothing to place your child for adoption, and all your medical and legal expenses are paid. Other pregnancy-related expenses, such as rent, maternity clothes, food, etc., may also be covered. Talk with an adoption coordinator for all the details.
