Some of my friends say I should keep my baby and that children belong with their birth parents, what should I do?
Do you find yourself thinking, “Is adoption right for me?” At Lifetime, we can help guide, support, and counsel, but ultimately the decision must be yours alone. Consider honestly where you are in your life now and if you are ready for parenting at this time. Considering or choosing adoption doesn’t mean you are a bad person, it simply means you know you are not at a time and place in your life to parent a child. It is easy for friends to make comments when they have not been in your position. The only person that can make this decision is you. You want to consider honestly your options of parenting and adoption before the baby is born. We can help you without judgement, we have a number of other previous birth mothers you can speak to if you would like to find out how they handled their pregnancy and adoption. Just ask us about your unplanned pregnancy options.
