Choosing Adoption for your Child

If you’re experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, you probably have a million thoughts racing through your mind. We understand! Stress and anxiety can sometimes push us into making a quick decision that might not be what’s best for us in the long run. You’ve got some hard decisions to make concerning your pregnancy, and Life Choices wants you to be in control of your future.

When you’re experiencing this crisis, it seems that information comes from every direction– some information seems trustworthy, but some doesn’t. We want you to have the real facts about adoption so you can make an informed decision about your pregnancy. Being informed will allow you to choose the best option for you and for your baby.

We’re here to help if you’re pregnant and are considering an adoption plan.

It was wonderful to be able to talk about my pregnancy with someone who had no emotional ties to anyone involved and someone who looked at everything objectively. Life Choices helped me to understand my feelings about being pregnant and to know that those feelings and concerns were normal.
