Pregnant and Considering Adoption. What Are My Options?
By Aurora Warner
You find out that you are pregnant, which in this case is the last thing you might have expected. You may now be at a total loss and unsure of what to do. At Adoption Choices of Oklahoma, we understand what you might be going through, and that life isn’t always what one might plan it to be. Remember, you are not the first or last person to deal with an unplanned pregnancy. Many things have led you to now be considering adoption. For example, you might be pregnant along with being homeless, dealing with drugs, or something else. In addition, the birth father might be around, or you may have been sexually assaulted or in an abusive domestic situation. If you are going through any of these situations, you can decide to put your child up for adoption to offer them the chance at life’s opportunity.
Some birth mothers cannot raise a child or choose not to. This happens often. Any reason as to why is acceptable. All that matters is that adoption is always an option, and you are okay with choosing it.
What is an Unplanned Pregnancy?
You discover that you are unexpectedly pregnant. An unplanned pregnancy is something that no one plans for. It’s okay to be upset, though, because some pregnancies are unwanted. The timing might be off, you might feel like you are too old or young for a child, or maybe you never wanted any children to begin with. Often, unplanned pregnancy is assumed to be single birth mothers. However, it is also common with women who are cohabiting or married.
What Are My Options For My Unplanned Pregnancy?
There are three alternatives available to you. There are three options: parent your child, terminate the pregnancy, or consider adoption. Many pregnancy options offer strengths and weaknesses regarding financial, medical, and emotional issues. The decision to become a parent can be permanent. You should determine if you can raise a child at the moment due.
If you are financially secure, have a stable household, and whether or not you are emotionally prepared for one, you may be able to raise a child, but even if you aren’t ready yet, that’s okay. If you are thinking about having an abortion, examine if you are legally allowed to do so in Oklahoma. Abortion is legal. However, there are many restrictions. You could come to regret it. If you are undecided on what to do, you can place your child for adoption instead of deciding between parenting and abortion. You can create an adoption plan, which will provide you with more freedom in making decisions.
You are free to make your own decisions. To create the adoption plan, select the adoptive family, and even manage the birth plan. You may also be given financial assistance. If necessary, medical and legal aid can be provided. We can assist you in deciding what to do with the pregnancy alternatives accessible to you. By us doing this, you can pick what you want.
