Unplanned Pregnancy During Quarantine
2020, more or less, has turned into a ferocious episode of the hit Netflix show, Black Mirror. The stay-at-home order, in more ways than one, has been a bit of a blessing in disguise. Quarantine free time has allowed us to take a step back from technology and refocus on the simplicities before we all had computers in our pockets. Sure, the amount of people that have been filing for unemployment has surpassed the record in the history of unemployment, BUT! Whether you’re still working from home, furloughed or categorized as an essential worker, keeping busy in the perimeter of your home with the same 1-5 people gets… creative.
Settling into the new norms of social distancing and attempting the never-ending variety of hobbies can get repetitive. For couples, quarantine free time has brought them closer, inspiring a level of intimacy that was distracted by the everyday monotony of a 9-5 lifestyle.
Adoption Choices of Oklahoma understands this time of uncertainty is unnerving, but we are to assist you in the event of unplanned pregnancy during the quarantine. Our agency is determined and dedicated to helping the residents of Oklahoma. From Oklahoma City, Tulsa to all the towns in between, we are here for you and your family.
Unplanned Pregnancy During Quarantine
Unplanned pregnancies simply means getting pregnant without the intent of becoming a parent. In instances like this, especially an unplanned pregnancy during quarantine, placing your baby up for adoption is always an option. Open adoptions, semi-open adoptions and closed adoptions are available alternatives, it just depends on your preference of communication.
Adoption Choices is dedicated in informing you about all your options, not just through adoption. The power of choice is a liberty we take seriously, especially when it involves the potential of creating a life. You are the only one who knows what’s best for you and your baby.

Meet the Author: Taylor Papadakis writes for organizations and movements she defines as incorruptible. Born in Texas and raised by wolves, she now resides in a town that refers to themselves as the Palm Springs of Washington. In 2019, Taylor graduated from Central Washington University (CWU) where she studied English, Creative Writing, and Philosophy. Once the treasurer for CWU’s Environmental Club, she assisted in initiating the sustainability garden project and happily educated students, staff and faculty members about the benefits of switching to metal instead of plastic silverware in the dining halls.
Taylor is a first-generation college graduate, former NAIA lacrosse leading scorer, and an avid believer that social media is melting away the youth of today. She actively advocates for social justice and equality, and describes protesting as “a Constitutional right we need to take advantage of because the stake of our future freedoms is incomprehensible.”
When she’s not writing, she’s most likely hiking, biking, sewing or making guacamole.
