woman considering second trimester pregnancy options

Have you known about your unplanned pregnancy for a while but feel stuck with how to move forward? Our law restricts abortions after a fetal heartbeat can be detected (at approximately six weeks). If you have already reached the second trimester of your pregnancy, you still have options, including adoption and parenting. 

Below is a brief overview of the adoption journey and ideas on how to plan for parenting success. 

All About Adoption

One of the biggest benefits of adoption is that the process allows women to resume their lives as planned after the pregnancy has come to term. Some women don’t feel prepared mentally or financially to raise a child, and adoption provides relief for these mothers. 

The adoption process begins when an expectant mother chooses an adoption agency to partner with. The adoption agency will act as her advocate and safe haven during the entire process. 

As a birth mother, you will have complete control when it comes to selecting the couple or family chosen to raise your child. Birth mothers will also have the choice to remain anonymous during the adoption process, known as a closed adoption, or have open communication with the adoptive family after the adoption is complete. 

Am I Ready To Parent?

Does the thought of parenting scare you? You might be surprised to learn that most mothers experience fear before their child is born. Anxiety about how you manage everything a baby needs, where you will live, and how you will support a child is completely normal.
