Is Adoption for Me?
An unplanned pregnancy can change all of your plans in an instant. You may be nervous about how the pregnancy will impact your future, you and the father of the baby may feel unprepared to parent, or you may feel you don’t have the support needed to raise a child. These feelings are okay. And, you still have options available to you.
Adoption is an option that allows you to continue pursuing the education, career path, or future that you have planned, while knowing that your baby has been lovingly placed in a carefully chosen home. Adoption provides a way for both you and your baby to have a fulfilling and wonderful life.
As you consider adoption, know that there are many different possibilities available to you. You may consider a closed, semi-open, or open adoption. This gives you the choice to have a relationship with your child, and make a plan for how often you would like to communicate with their family and visit with your child. You can even select the family you would like to place your baby with, ensuring that they are raised in home where you know they will be loved and provided for.
Adoption can be a difficult, but incredibly brave and loving choice. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta is a confidential, non-biased place to discuss all of your pregnancy options , including adoption. Our clinic does not provide adoption services, and will provide you with referrals to adoption agencies if you decide to pursue this option.
Call or text today to make an appointment at our Johns Creek or Decatur location, and make a decision that you can feel confident about.
