Adoption

Some people choose adoption when faced with a pregnancy. Information and support is important, but only you know what’s best for you.

There can be lots of things to consider, and it’s totally normal to have many different feelings and thoughts when making your decision. That’s why it’s important to get factual information about your pregnancy options. Support from other people you trust can also help you figure out if adoption is right for you.

More About Adoption

The process of adoption is when you give birth and then choose someone else to parent your child. It’s a permanent, legal agreement where you agree to place your child in the care of another person or family permanently.

You are in charge of your choice.  There are many families throughout the country hoping to build their families through adoption. There are laws in every state guiding adoptive families and protecting you, so it’s important you speak with an adoption agency or attorney. The decision to place a child for adoption is personal, and you’re the only one who can make it.
