Adoption involves giving your child a new future with an adoptive family. The process involves giving birth to your baby and then choosing your level of interaction with your child as they grow. Adoption is a flexible and practical choice for women facing unplanned pregnancies.
Many adoption agencies now offer “open adoption.” This means that your comfort and choices are the most important goal. You can choose your child’s adoptive family or even meet with them before you agree to the adoption.
Before you choose, the first step is receiving an ultrasound. An ultrasound will reveal if the pregnancy is viable and help you determine your next step. At the PHC, we offer ultrasounds up to 20 weeks. All services are FREE and confidential.
If circumstances leave you unable to raise your baby, adoption may be the right option for you.
