Unexpectedly finding out you are pregnant can be extremely stressful and scary, especially when it is unplanned. You may be feeling out of control and anxious. It is important to know that there is support available to you even though it may not seem like it at this stage.
I have supported numerous women who have found themselves in unplanned pregnancy situations, assisting them to work through their pregnancy decision processes. I hear you; I feel your anxiety! Right now it is time to get educated and break down all of your options so that you can make an informed decision for your unborn child. Even if, at this moment, you do not feel that adoption is the best option for you and your baby, it is essential that you consider and evaluate each and every option.
No matter what your choice, I am here to help support you through this tough time. I am not here to judge you, nor will I tell you what you must do. This is your story, your journey and I am here to guide you through it, in a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
My support is available, regardless of your race, religion or income. If I cannot help you for some reason, I will make every effort to find someone who can.
“When I was 16 I fell pregnant…. I was one of the typical girls that said it would never happen to me. But it did, and it was the scariest and loneliest time I have ever experienced. I didn’t know what to do or where to turn to. But in my heart, I knew abortion isn’t an answer. I knew my options as my mother was adopted. I didn’t know what the process was, but it wasn’t what I thought it was. You hear all the horrible stories, but it’s not like that anymore. It’s such a beautiful process. You have much more say than before. I truly believe that I did the best I possibly could do for my daughter at the time. I know that she is in a loving, happy home. Much better than what I could give her. She will always be in my heart, and I know one day when she’s old enough she will come meet me.” – Biological mother
