However, you always have options for finding the right fit for you and your child. You can always place your child for adoption after you’ve given birth.
Adoption is a brave, selfless, and loving choice for your child. If you are not in a situation to parent your child, your adoption agency can help you find a family. While it is a stressful situation to be in, facing an unplanned pregnancy does not have to result in a negative outcome.
