Pregnancy options counseling is a type of counseling that provides information and support regarding pregnancy. Women seeking pregnancy options counseling are typically doing so in the case of an unplanned, unintended pregnancy, unwanted, or crisis pregnancy.
Adoption Choices of Colorado is a licensed adoption agency ready to discuss all your options as you face this pregnancy. We neither encourage nor discourage a woman’s decision. Rather, we present unbiased information about each of the options. We then help you explore your feelings and come to a decision that best fits you based on your values, culture, future plans, etc.
In short, you have 3 options to consider:
- Carry the baby to term and parent
- Carry the baby to term and place for adoption
- Terminate the pregnancy
Each option comes with its own set of pros and cons. Ultimately it is YOUR decision. We will never force, coerce, nor convince you to choose one pregnancy option over the other. We will provide resources and information to help you understand your choices.
Parenting promotes and supports the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Parenting requires financial readiness such as safe housing, stable income, and support.
Adoption is a permanent, legal transfer of parental rights and responsibilities from child’s birth parents to the adoptive parents. Pregnant women/couple’s considering to place their child up for adoption have many options as to how much involvement they wish to have in choosing the adoptive parents.
One option that a woman with an unplanned pregnancy may consider is abortion, the deliberate termination of a pregnancy.
