The Gladney Center for Adoption is deemed by the government essential to the communities we serve. Because of this status, our adoption team is working to make sure we are providing help to expectant parents and parents currently parenting who want to make an adoption plan for their child(ren). We are practicing social distancing, but that won't stop us from giving you the help you need.
Speak To A Counselor
For an unplanned pregnancy, there is no easy choice. But as you give your decision the time and consideration it deserves, you’ll grow more confident, peaceful, and prepared for your future.
Maybe you can't ride a unicycle or make a perfect crème brûlée. Maybe you can't say what makes the sky so blue and maybe you can't stop crying. Maybe you can't decide what you're going to do about your unplanned pregnancy, and maybe you can't express just how panicked you are.
You're standing at a crossroads right now. You're pregnant and don't know which road to take. There are several options: parenting, adoption, abortion.
While you are thinking about your options, why not meet face-to-face with one of Gladney's Options Counselors. If you live in Florida, Erica Andres, would be happy to talk with you and share information about your choices.
The decision of what to do after finding out about an unplanned pregnancy is not easy. However, there are many options that you can consider. Rushing towards a decision will only lead to more stress and uncertainty. Make sure you know and think about your options and give consideration to this important decision. With this, you will become more confident and certain. You will also be better prepared for the future of what is in store for you and your baby. There are many options to consider such as marriage, single parenting, adoption, and abortion. Make sure you know the positives and negatives surrounding each option.
