What Are My Options When I Don’t Want to Be a Mom But I’m Pregnant?

If you’re pregnant and scared of your life changing, then that is a valid feeling. The thought of becoming a parent when you aren’t ready is incredibly stressful. Although it’s too late in your pregnancy to get an abortion, there is another path available to you: adoption. When you’re pregnant but don’t want to be a mom, then adoption could be the right decision for your situation.

If you’re leaning toward parenthood, though, then these resources could be beneficial for you:

By choosing adoption, you can resume your life as normal while giving your child the gift of the brightest future imaginable. You’re also giving the beautiful gift of parenthood to people who have always dreamed of building their family.

Because we’re a full-service, national adoption agency, we can complete every step of your adoption journey under one roof. From helping you create your adoption plan to providing post-placement support, we’ll do all the heavy lifting while you call the shots.

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.
