Developing an adoption plan empowers you to create a healthy future for you and your child. While adoption may not be your first thought when facing an unplanned pregnancy, you may feel relieved to learn that adoption offers you several life-enhancing options.
As the birthmother, you have the option to choose who will parent your child from a list of screened and prepared families. You can also choose whether to have some level of ongoing relationship with your child. Best of all, you can explore this option throughout your pregnancy without making a commitment until after your child is born.
Adoption offers the lifelong satisfaction of knowing you gave your child the chance for a life of his or her own. Research has shown that pregnant teens and women who make an adoption plan are more likely to finish schooling, have better jobs, and overall report a high level of satisfaction with their adoption decision.
