What is Adoption

As you consider your next steps after an unplanned pregnancy, you may begin to have questions about the option of adoption: What can you expect? How does it work? And is it really an option for you?

If you are wondering what adoption is, know one thing above everything else: you get to define it for yourself. Over the last few decades, adoption has transformed into an increasingly positive experience for everyone involved – especially pregnant women. From choosing a family to deciding how much contact to have with your child, you will be in charge of the entire process, and you will have access to support and guidance the entire way. By being actively involved in the adoption process, you can feel certain that you are not “giving up” your baby: you are giving him or her the gift of a family.

Read the following articles to learn about how to pursue adoption, how the process works, and what adoption means for you and your baby.
