I Don’t Want To Be Pregnant. If I Can’t Get An Abortion, What Can I Do?
Let’s start with two obvious facts: (1) Nothing will undo the fact that you are pregnant, and (2) you will give birth to a baby. What has happened has already happened. None of us can change the past. As the expression goes, “You can’t unring the bell.” If you are not happy about being pregnant and not prepared to raise a child, think about how to make the best of what you consider a bad situation. More importantly, you are now responsible for the life of an innocent child, and you need to make the best decision for him or her.
For most women facing an unplanned pregnancy or untimely pregnancy, they intentionally or unintentionally (by not making other plans) decide to parent the child. In many, perhaps, most situations that decision serves the best interest interests of the mother and child. Even if those women did not plan to get pregnant, they successfully take on the challenge of parenting a child for the rest of their lives and do well at it.
However, not everyone has the resources, skill, and desire to dedicate their lives to the responsibility of raising a child. For those women, they need to look at other alternatives. Some will find that their parents will happily, or out of a sense of obligation to a grandchild, assume responsibility for raising the child.
Another alternative, which does not get nearly enough attention, is to give the baby up for adoption, or, more correctly, to make an adoption plan for the child. As previously, stated nothing will change the fact of the pregnancy, but giving a newborn the gift of a loving, happy, secure home and bright future and adoptive parents, who desperately want a child, the gift of parenthood may just be the best way to turn a negative situation into the best outcome for all involved, including the birth mother. Not often can any of us change the lives of others in a meaningful way. To give a child the opportunity for a productive happy life and adoptive parents a child to love and nurture is a close to God-like as anything one human can do for another.

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.
