It is possible for women and girls to find themselves in a difficult situation due to unwanted pregnancies. When women get unplanned pregnancy and have nowhere to run to, they get scared and afraid. Abortion is the first option for many women with unwanted pregnancies think of. It is advisable for a pregnant woman to reconsider their decision of having an abortion as it is a decision that one will have to live with. It is possible for pregnant women to find alternatives to abortion as explained in this article.
Adoption is one alternative that pregnant women who were thinking of abortion have. Adoption is whereby you carry the pregnancy to full term, give birth and give the child to another family to raise it. Closed and open are the two types of adoption available. In a closed adoption, there is no contract between you and the new family hence you are not allowed to get in touch with the child. The adoptive family can choose either to disclose the adoptive news to the child or not if the option chosen was closed adoption. For a pregnant woman who would like to give up their child to an adoptive family, they can go for open adoption.
Here, the biological mother can keep in touch with the adoptive family and they together can agree on the level of interaction they will have with the child. An agreement is a must between the mother and adoptive family before accepting to all the conditions. Also, a mother can choose agency adoption once they have decided to give up their child to an adoptive family. You can have a third party take care of looking for an adoptive family for your child and complete the whole process on your behalf if you choose agency adoption. A background check on the agency is advisable for your child’s safety.
A pregnant woman can drop the idea of abortion if they choose parenting. Here, the mother chooses to raise the child and become a parent to them. A father and mother to the child can choose to raise the child or the mother can do it on their own. Parenting will involve not thinking about you but concentrating on bringing up the child. For you to be able to bring up the child, your career and goals may be put on hold. Financially and emotionally stable is required once you decide to become a parent to the child. But, although parenting comes with a lot of challenges, the fulfilment of having to raise your child is comparable to none.
