Adoption is a choice many pregnant women will consider or choose. Parenthood requires an emotional, physical and financial commitment; not everyone faced with a pregnancy is prepared for full-time parenthood. Adoption lets you have a choice in the kind of life you want for your child. This is a process whereby a parent chooses to have her child raised by another family. You are making a decision that will affect many lives. Making an adoption plan takes love, courage and sacrifice. Licensed agencies can give you more information on this process.
