If you’re pregnant and thinking about adoption, or looking into adoption options for your child, chances are you have lots of questions. As you decide what will work out best for you and your child, there are two important things we want to share about adoption:
- It’s never too late for adoption and you can take as much time as you need to make your decision.
- Even if you find that adoption isn’t the plan you decide for your child, learning about adoption will allow you to help a friend in the future, who may choose adoption or be thinking about her options.
Either way, as you make your plans, it helps to get answers without feeling like you are making a decision one way or another.
If you have questions or want to talk about your situation, please contact us online or call anytime: 1-800-923-6784.
