When you need unplanned pregnancy help you might not automatically think about giving baby up for adoption. But planning adoption is one of your choices. It’s important to understand what putting a child up for adoption really means. We’re all familiar with the term ‘give baby up for adoption’ or ‘put child up for adoption’ but it’s better to say ‘plan adoption’ or ‘make an adoption plan’. When you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and are considering the adoption option we want you to know that you’re in control. It’s your adoption plan – you’re choosing what’s right for yourself and for your baby.
A pregnant/adoption plan can mean:
100% confidential – we’ll talk with you about what you want and help you make the best plan. We won’t share your information with anyone you don’t want to be included in the plan without your knowledge.
