A woman with an unintended or unplanned pregnancy has other choices, including, figuring out how to parent the child, finding a family member or friend to help, and arranging temporary foster care, to name a few.
For the purposes of this Blog, let us assume you have explored those options and others, and have concluded you must choose between giving your baby up for adoption or abortion. How to decide?
Understand that NEITHER CHOICE NOR ANY OF THE OTHER OPTIONS will “undo” the pregnancy and only you can decide what is best for you. By the way, we have intentionally left out consideration of what is best for the unborn child. Let us just focus on what is best for you.
Abortion immediately ends the pregnancy. You will not have to carry the baby to term and feel it kick from the inside or go through the grief associated with leaving the hospital without the baby. On the other hand, you will live the rest of your life knowing that you aborted a child. Some argue that it is not a child – it is a fetus. Perhaps, that is how some come to peace with the decision to abort.
If you chose to put up your baby up for adoption, or more correctly, make an adoption plan for your baby, you will know you put your child’s needs ahead of your own and given a family who cannot conceive a child a “God-like” gift. Although you will grieve the loss of your child, you will know that you have given your child to a family who will devote themselves to seeing that your child grows up happy, with lots of opportunities for fun and adventure, a good education, and bright future.
Neither choice is easy. Neither changes the fact that you are, or were, pregnant. You need to decide which one offers you the greatest peace, not only in the short term but for the rest of your life.

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.
