Parenting

You may have more questions than answers about parenting or maybe the thought of becoming a parent seems impossible to you at this time. We’ve talked to many young women who are concerned about things like this:

  • My partner doesn’t want the baby but I do

  • I can’t tell my family

  • How will I finish school?

  • How will I continue working?

  • Where will I live?

  • I don’t have medical insurance

  • I can’t afford a child

  • I’m too young

We can answer your questions, identify support in your relationships and community, and talk about all these issues with you so you can decide if parenting is right for you.

 

 

Adoption

You have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open or closed? Will it be private or will you use an adoption agency? How many couples can you interview? You are in the driver’s seat when making an adoption plan. There are many things to consider if you:

  • Aren’t ready to be a parent

  • Want to provide your child with a 2-parent family

  • Want to provide your child emotional and financial stability

We can refer you to local adoption services in the area. 

 

WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?

When experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, many women experience a range of emotions and may feel overwhelmed by decisions they face. Our trained advocates are here to listen and support you.

Abortion

 We are a pro-life organization and do not make abortion referrals.  However, if you’re considering having an abortion, it is important to remember that abortion is a medical/surgical procedure. What are the different types of abortion? What are the risks? You deserve to know the facts, and to make a truly informed decision.

Perhaps you’re thinking:

  • The father is insisting on an abortion

  • I’m not ready to be a parent

  • I can’t tell anyone I’m pregnant

You’re not alone. We have counseled many young women who are just where you are. If you’re considering abortion, you need to know:

  • Are you really pregnant?

  • Is your pregnancy normal? Are you at risk for natural miscarriage? Or do you have a tubal pregnancy requiring immediate medical attention?

  • How far along are you?

You may also be interested in knowing:

  • What is the abortion procedure like?

  • What are your rights with abortion providers?

  • Do I have to get consent from a parent to have an abortion?

  • Are there short-term or long-term risks to consider?
