Answers for Young Women - Adoption
If you find yourself facing an unplanned pregnancy, adoption will be one of the most important options you consider. Adoption is not a perfect system, but when choosing between life-giving adoption, and abortion, which takes your unborn baby’s life, the choice is clear. Whichever decision you make, you will always be a mother – of an infant placed with a loving family, or of a child whose death you will always remember.
If at anytime during your decision-making process you feel forced or pressured toward "only one solution" by someone – a boyfriend, parent or clinic worker – you would be wise to consult others whom you trust.
There are many adoption agencies in Wisconsin, ready to help you make your adoption plan. Since the agencies are too numerous to list here, go to http://dhfs.wisconsin.gov/children/adoption. All are willing to help you with this most important decision, without pressuring you.
