I’m Pregnant and Scared; What Options Do I Have?

If you’re 32 weeks pregnant and scared of being a mom, then you have two options to choose from: parenting and adoption. Many states won’t allow an abortion at this stage of pregnancy, which leaves you with these two paths.

It's OK to acknowledge that you might not want to be a parent at this point in your life. Although it's normal to be apprehensive about being pregnant and scared of your life changing, remember that adoption is always an option.

Whether you are 32 weeks pregnant and scared of being a mom or have already given birth, you can still place your baby for adoption. Here at our agency, we’ll guide you through the entire adoption process from start to finish. As a full-service, national adoption agency, we’ll supply you with everything you need for the adoption journey under one roof.

What Do I Do When I Don’t Want to Be a Mom But I’m Pregnant?

If you’re pregnant but don’t want to be a mom, then adoption is always an option for you. Pregnant mothers choose adoption for many reasons, including:

  • A chance to continue pursuing educational or professional goals
  • An inability to provide for a child
  • A lack of a safe, stable household for a child to grow up in

Determining what’s next for your pregnancy is a completely personal choice. Only you can know what’s right for your situation. Still, that doesn’t mean you have to go about this journey alone. We know you're pregnant and scared, so that’s why we’ll provide you with all the resources and guidance you need.

We understand that you're pregnant and scared, uncertain about the path that lies ahead. That’s why we’ll always be here for you. You can talk to us about any concerns you have and ask us all your pregnancy- and adoption-related questions.

Our staff includes birth mothers, adoptive families and adoptees. In other words, we’ll use our direct experiences to ensure that yours is as positive and fulfilling as it can be.

When you’re 32 weeks pregnant and scared of being a mom, you don’t have to raise the baby. Adoption is always an option for you. By choosing adoption, you can create a brighter future for both yourself and your baby. To begin this beautiful journey now, contact us online at any time.

Pursuing Adoption When I’m Pregnant and Scared of Being a Mom

When you choose adoption, you’re making a brave, selfless and heroic decision to give your child a chance at the best life possible. You may not be ready to become a parent right now, but adoption means you can still give your child a life of endless love and opportunity.

By working with our agency, you’ll have thousands of hopeful adoptive parents to select from. In other words, you can find the truly perfect family for your baby and give your child the life you always dreamed of for them. Even if you’re pregnant but don’t want to be a mom, you can still stay in touch with your child for years to come through open adoption.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is American Adoptions the right adoption agency choice for many birth mothers?

American Adoptions is one of the largest licensed adoption agencies in the United States. Each year, we work with thousands of women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy and offer assistance to these women. Our large, caring staff is able to assist you seven days a week and provide you with one-on-one counseling about your pregnancy and available options.

You should choose an adoption agency where you feel completely comfortable with their services and staff. With American Adoptions, you will work with an Adoption Specialist who is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Adoption Specialist will be your advocate and will provide support and guidance as you create an adoption plan that is right for you.

How will the family tell my child about me and the adoption when my child is older?

Each family has their own style of introducing adoption to the child. When you are matched with an adoptive family, you can ask them this question. If you would like your Adoption Specialist to discuss it for you, just let her know. He or she can share your wishes or provide good ideas from other adoptive families.

You will also be able to share what you want your baby to know about you. You can complete a keepsake booklet to share hobbies, stories, photos of you and your family and a letter to your baby. The adoptive family can provide this to your child as he or she grows older. Be as creative as you like! Some birth mothers have even knitted a special blanket as a gift to their baby or given a similar symbol of their love.

The father of your baby can fill out the birth father's keepsake booklet or write a letter too. You may have other family members who would also like to share photos or a letter to the baby. This is your opportunity to pass on your and your family's love and to share your personality, history and reasons for choosing adoption. The adoptive family will treasure whatever information you provide and will share it with the baby at an appropriate age. In most adoptive homes, the word adoption is in the child's vocabulary early on, and adoption is celebrated in their lives.
