Deciding to have an abortion can be an emotionally challenging experience, and it is understandable to want to explore other options. There are several alternatives to consider, depending on your personal situation and preferences. Continue reading for more information.
Adoption is a rewarding alternative that has multiple benefits. It allows you to keep your freedom while giving a loving and caring couple their dream to grow their family.
You’re In Control
Did you know that you are in complete control throughout the adoption process and can choose how much (if any) involvement you want in the child’s life.
Generally, there are three types of adoption scenarios to choose from:
- Open Adoption: Open communication between you, the child, and the adoptive family
- Semi-Open: Limited communication (as much or as little as you want) can exist between you and the child, but a third party helps distribute it.
- Closed Adoption: No communication between you and the child with all records and identifying documents are legally sealed
An added benefit is that you can also receive financial assistance when choosing adoption? This frequently includes covering the costs of your medical bills, such as prenatal and postpartum care, and can even help provide maternity clothes, food, housing, and more.
Parenting is another option to consider if you are facing an unexpected pregnancy.
While you may have concerns about balancing raising a child with work, school, or family obligations, knowing that you are not alone is important. While no one can ever be fully prepared to raise a child, many women have found the support they need from various sources such as work, family, friends, and government assistance.
With the right support and resources, you can provide for your child and build a fulfilling life as a parent. First Care is here to support and assist with getting you the resources you need as you consider parenting as a viable option.
