Choosing Adoption Amid a Surprise Pregnancy
The past few months amid the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine have been jam packed with surprises, and with so much spare time, an unplanned pregnancy may become a part of that. We at Adoption Choices of Arizona want you to know you have options, and your surprise pregnancy could become someone else’s dream fulfilled. Here’s why you should consider adoption:
Just because you don’t want kids, that doesn’t wipe away other worthy people who do
Unfortunately, there are countless worthy individuals and couples who would do anything to have their own children but simply can’t. They often look to adoption for a process with a guaranteed result since artificial insemination and other medical procedures aren’t always successful. However, every adoption results in a deserving family getting what they sought after, and you could help contribute to that. Meet some of our waiting families!
You’ve made it clear abortion isn’t an option, and this is a safe alternative
Pregnancy may not have been in your plans, and abortion isn’t an option for you. That’s completely OK. Whatever a woman wants to do with her body, she can. Not wanting an abortion probably means you hope to see your child make a mark on the world, and choosing an adoption can definitely help them get there. With an adoptive family who can help them thrive, your child will go far in life.
You don’t want to keep a child to whom you aren’t fully committed
Since abortion isn’t an option, you may feel pressured to keep the child. It’s important to talk to your husband or boyfriend, whoever is involved in the situation, and make sure they want the same things as you. It’s important to remember that if you don’t really want a child or don’t have the room, you aren’t going to be as committed to them as someone else. It’s OK to feel that way and to seek out adoptive parents who can fill that void.
Unplanned pregnancies can be terrifying, but they don’t have to be as stressful once you talk things over with your partner and create a plan. Adoption is a choice that always ends well, and it should be at the forefront of your mind in situations and at times like this.
