Unplanned Pregnancy in Florida

At one point in the United States, unplanned pregnancies were found to be an epidemic affecting many birth mothers. However, with the development of birth control supplements and more, the unplanned pregnancy rate has decreased. Though the rate does still exist, affecting plenty of mothers. You know what? That is okay and unplanned pregnancies happen all of the time regardless of whether you are being careful. If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, your life is not over and you should not beat yourself up about it. Apart from multiple contraceptives being available, there are options you can utilize in relation to your unplanned pregnancy. 

Adoption Choices of Florida can help you with one of the three options available if you would like us to. We are a private adoption agency with sectors spread across Florida in Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, and Miami. Our goal is to help assist you in the life you want and build families while doing so through the lenses of adoption! 

Options During an Unplanned Pregnancy 

When you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, birth mothers might be ecstatic because she is in a safe situation to raise a child. Though the child was unplanned, she has the means to raise said child and has no issue keeping the child even if it wasn’t on purpose. However, it can be different for you which we respect and acknowledge here at Adoption Choices of Florida. You don’t want your unplanned child and are thinking of different options than taking care of your child. To be exact, you have three options you can choose from when it comes to dealing with an unplanned pregnancy. 

An option that we know you might not want is to raise the child. You may not have the financial or physical capabilities to raise the child. But, there are definitely no worries because you have other options as well. The second option is to terminate the pregnancy. If you take such steps, you will not give birth to the said child and won’t carry them throughout the full term of your pregnancy. Understanding terminating a pregnancy is a sentimental option that many birth mothers contemplate because of the negative thoughts that plague them. Not to mention the stigma and judgment from society may cause even more issues. That is just a warning before going along with the option, but here at Adoption Choices of Florida we never judge. Also, there are positives such as setting yourself and enduring a new path in the future. We support you 100% of the time. 

There is one final option and that option is called adoption. This is where we come in. During this process, we won’t just be a private adoption agency to you, but family as well! 

What is Adoption and How Does The Process Work?

Adoption is a legal process that happens through the likes of the courts. It is when your child, once born, will be placed for a newborn up for adoption within the care of a person or couple who went through legal steps to be able to adopt the child. Once in their custody, the child shall be raised as their own and they will be their legal parents. Adoption is a beautiful process that does have a negative stigma surrounding it, but we hope it does not scare you away from such an option. 

But, if you are against terminating a pregnancy or raising a child as your own if the child is unplanned, adoption is a great choice. During the process, everything is based on your own decisions including the type of adoption you want: closed, semi-open, or open. Also, the adoptive parents of your baby will be solely decided by you if you want to make that decision. If you come to our agency, we will answer all of your questions and concerns pertaining to adoption.
