You are a woman facing an unplanned pregnancy. More than that, you are brave and considerate for taking the steps to learn more about adoption. Adoption is a selfless, loving choice that allows you to make a plan for your baby – such as finding a stable, caring family to raise him or her – and to give your child the best possible life you can give at this time.
Picture your child five or ten years from now. Maybe you picture your child in a stable home with a big backyard, with siblings and loving parents. Maybe you see your child taking dance classes, or succeeding in school and sports. Whatever you see, do you see yourself in that picture? If you envision your child in a place that you cannot realistically get him or her, you may be considering adoption. Now, picture yourself five or ten years down the road. Maybe you would like to go to
