Can I Choose Adoption as a Pregnant and Homeless Woman?

Life can be a struggle at times. One issue may prove difficult, but it is often accompanied by more issues that can pile up and make things seem impossible. You may not have planned on being pregnant, and certainly did not plan on being without a home. When life’s problems feel overwhelming, it’s important to look for help. Fortunately, help is available to you, courtesy of Adoption Choices of Arizona.

If you’re wondering: Can I choose adoption as a pregnant and homeless woman? You’ve come to the right place! Our adoption center in Arizona specializes in providing you with the resources and information you need to figure out what’s best for you. We can also help you find safe and temporary housing to get you through your pregnancy and adoption journey. Our highly-trained adoption team would love to help you form a customized adoption plan that meets all your needs, and grant both you and your baby a more stable future.

Deciding on Adoption when Homeless

A pregnant mother is generally presented with three options when handling an unplanned or unexpected pregnancy. You can choose to parent and raise the child, terminate the pregnancy, or place your child for adoption with an adoption agency. The first option isn’t for everyone, and it might not be possible in your current financial situation to raise a child — not to mention the pressing issue of not having a home to raise the child in at the moment. Terminating the pregnancy is one other option, though this is also not for everyone. If you have emotional or moral reservations about this, then putting your child up for adoption may feel like the most positive, logical alternative that ensures the safety of both you and your child in the future.

If you are putting your child up for adoption, you should know that your decision is not an act of selfishness in any way. If you know you cannot care for a child right now, you are giving them the best chance at a successful life. Choosing adoption for your baby is one of the most selfless, caring things a mother can do for her child. Adoption is, itself, an act of love.

Handling Homelessness and Pregnancy

If you are currently experiencing a housing crisis and you don’t have a safe place to stay while pregnant, Adoption Choices of Arizona can make sure you are taken care of. Birth mothers are entitled to some financial assistance in covering the expenses related to their pregnancy when choosing adoption. An adoption caseworker from our adoption agency will work with you and explain what kind of financial assistance you are eligible for.

Your housing situation will last for the duration of your pregnancy, up to six weeks after delivery. This will give you enough time to give birth, recover and help get your feet back under you. Be sure to consult with your adoption caseworker about the specifics regarding this and your individual circumstances.
