Your pregnancy may have been planned or could be a surprise, but no matter what a new life has been created. You have 3 options to consider, and it is your choice. It is our hope that you will become educated in each of the three choices so that you can make a decision you will not regret.
Choosing to parent is always an option to consider. Even if you feel that you do not have the skills to raise a child, everyone has to start somewhere. If you do choose to parent your child, there is help available. What if you do not have the material items necessary to raise a child? What if you have questions on how to raise your child? If you would like, you can choose to sign up for our free parenting program called “Learning for Life”. Through “Learning for Life” you can earn a lot of material items needed for you and your baby, as well as some of the parenting skills needed to raise a child.
If you feel that parenting your child is not an option for you, another option to consider is adoption. Adoption can be open or closed, and that choice is yours. With open adoption, communication between birth mother and the adoptive parents is open, and the amount of contact is negotiated between birth mother and the adoptive family. With closed adoptions, there is no contact between families after the papers are signed. You will need to decide what works best for you. We are willing to help you further understand your options with adoption, as well as refer you to an adoption agency.
Abortion is the termination of a healthy pregnancy by drugs or a surgical procedure. If you’re thinking about finding an abortion clinic, it is important to remember that abortion is a medical procedure. What type will you have? What are the risks? You deserve to know the facts. You owe it to yourself to make an informed decision. There is a lot to educate yourself on before you make a decision, and we are here to help you every step of the way. Our center offers peer counseling and accurate information about all pregnancy options; however, we do not offer or refer for abortion services.
No one should pressure you into any decision with something as big as pregnancy.
There is a lot to educate yourself on, and we are here to help you every step of the way! We would love for you to call or come by our center, so we can further help and support you.
