If we could remove our emotions from decision-making and instead base our decisions on objective facts, most of us would make wiser decisions. As time goes on, emotions fade, but facts remain. Thus, if you could take your emotions out of your decision-making, you will likely come to a better conclusion. Of course, the problem is how do you remove emotions from such a personal decision. Try this – Imagine that a close friend of yours came to you with the same issue. What advice would you give your friend? Pregnancies come to an end in one of three ways — the birth of the baby, abortion, or miscarriage. Since miscarriages are not controllable, the options for your friend include giving birth and abortion. Abortion ends the pregnancy but not the fact that your friend was pregnant. While many women have determined that it was their right to make the decision to abort the pregnancy and have learned to live with it, is hard to imagine that any woman who aborted a child was proud of her decision. You need to ask your friend to think about how she will feel about having had an abortion in the years to come, as the abortion will always be a part of her personal story, even if nobody else knows she had an abortion.
Giving birth does not necessarily mean parenting the child. Parenting is a lifetime, monumental commitment – not an 18-year obligation. Parents never stop parenting their children. If your friend is not ready to assume that commitment, she may want to consider giving the baby up for adoption or more correctly, making an adoption plan for the child.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.
