Having an unplanned pregnancy can be overwhelming and can change your life, no matter what you decide to do. It’s important to remember that whatever decision you make will have an impact on your life and also your child’s life. Therefore, you need to think carefully about all of your unplanned pregnancy options.
With an unplanned pregnancy, you have three choices:
- You can parent your child
- Place your baby for adoption
- Aborting your pregnancy
Only you can decide which choice is right for you. Whatever you decide, Courageous Hearts Adoptions will stand by you, offering our compassion, guidance, and support.
We help birth mothers decide whether adoption is right for them and guide them in understanding their rights and choices.
Let’s explore the unplanned pregnancy options in detail:
Am I ready to become a parent? It is the most critical question that can be answered only by you if you are facing an unplanned pregnancy. You can decide to parent your child. But, as you’ve probably heard many times before, parenting is rewarding, but it takes a village to raise a child.
To be a parent, you must be mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically ready. You should have the support & means to raise your child. Think about the long-term effects of this decision. If you lack the necessary resources to become a parent, think twice.
Adoption can be chosen at any point in your pregnancy journey, even after birth. It is never too late to make an adoption plan for your baby. The first step in the adoption process is deciding whether or not adoption is right for you. Adoption is a courageous choice and an act of love. With Courageous Hearts Adoptions, you can control every decision, including choosing the right adoptive family.
It’s important to remember that you are not just “giving up” or giving away your child. Instead, you are creating a better life for them and helping them find a loving family. Adoption is a positive choice.
You are free to determine what type of adoption you want for you and your baby, including:
- Open Adoption
- Semi-Open Adoption
- Closed Adoption

Depending on how far along you are, there may be medical risks and long-term effects when terminating your pregnancy. Different states have different rules about abortion.
If you’re thinking about getting an abortion, you should learn what the laws are in your state.
If you’re not ready to make your decision, that’s okay. Take the time you need, as there is no rush or deadline to decide. In the meantime, do your research to make a plan.
