I’m Not Ready To Be Pregnant And I Don’t Want an Abortion–
What Can I Do?
Whether you’re faced with an unplanned or untimely pregnancy, it’s usually extremely difficult to evaluate options on your own. Without any judgment, pressure, or obligation, Shorstein & Kelly offers free counseling focusing on helping you look at and evaluate your options. For some women, one option may include parenting of the newborn by the child’s parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or other family members. For families with strong core value systems, these situations turn out very well. Consulting with an outside counselor often allows you to have a more independent look at the emotional, psychological, financial, and environmental factors that impact such an important decision — one that will affect the rest of your life and your baby’s too.
Another option, which gets very little attention in Florida, is putting your baby up for adoption, or, more correctly stated, to choose an adoption plan for the child. An adoption plan with Shorstein & Kelly provides you the opportunity to bless adoptive parents of your choice. Giving up your baby for adoption is a three-way gift:
- Your baby receives the gift of a happy, loving, financially, and emotionally secure adoptive family of your choice. Most families who hope to adopt can’t have children of their own. The only way they can be parents is through this gift of life.
- You started with an unplanned or untimely pregnancy, and you have turned the situation into a hopeful opportunity. In Florida, most of the expenses associated with your pregnancy will be paid. So, not only will you have a life-long relationship with the new family who adopted your baby, but you’re also afforded a fresh start at your own life.
- The adoptive parents, who have worked so hard to build a loving, safe, and happy home, will now receive the gift they have dreamed of for a very long time. They will gratefully stay in touch with you for as long as you want.
