Finding out that you have an unplanned pregnancy, unintended pregnancy, untimely pregnancy, or unwanted pregnancy probably took your breath away when you first found out. However, many of us let our minds jump to the worst possible outcome whenever we worry. Usually, the “worst” does not happen, and often, the best solution is not the one that most immediately makes our worries go away.
What you ultimately decide is entirely up to you, and you will be the one most impacted by your decision, although as a pregnant woman, your decision is complicated by the human life you have conceived. The two conclusions that immediately come to mind are parenting the child or aborting it. Obviously, both have long-term consequences for both you and the unborn baby. Therefore, you should not only consider what to do now but how the consequences of what you do now will affect the rest of your life.
An alternative to a situation like yours that does often come to mind is adoption. Before dismissing that idea, you might want to think of the potential benefits to you and your unborn baby, including:
- Knowing that you have given your baby a chance for a bright future, in which he or she has the chance to pursue their full potential – maybe your child will be the person who finds the cure for cancer – who knows, but maybe.
- Knowing that you have done something “God-like” for the adoptive parents – given them a child.
- Knowing that you have put the needs of others ahead of your own needs and feelings.
However, putting a child up for adoption — or, more correctly, making an adoption plan — is not all rainbows and roses. It will be the hardest decision you ever make – a decision few people have the strength and fortitude to make.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant mom’s search results in Google.
