Placing your child for adoption may not be your first thought if you are facing an unplanned pregnancy. However, you may be pleased to know you have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open, semi-open or closed? Will it be private or will you use an agency?

An adoption plan may be the right choice for you if you are not ready to be a parent and do not want an abortion. In today’s adoptions, you can select the family for your child, you can know your child and be a part of your child’s life. With any type of adoption, you can have the peace of knowing your choice has given your child a future.

Research has shown that pregnant teens and women who make an adoption plan are more likely to finish schooling, have better jobs and overall report a high level of satisfaction with their decision for adoption. 74

We can help you understand your choices and your pregnancy, discuss your health and explain your abortion options. Gateway Women’s Care provides one-on-one consultation and support as well as accurate information on all pregnancy options; however, we do not provide or refer for abortion services.
