Certainly there are a multitude of situations that you may be in that led you to consider adoption.

What is an Unplanned Pregnancy?
An unplanned pregnancy is exactly as it sounds… a pregnancy that wasn’t planned for. Surprise!! Most pregnancies in the U.S. are unplanned. But some of them are also unintended or unwanted. Maybe the timing isn’t right, maybe you feel too old or too young to parent. Perhaps you just never wanted to have kids. Although unplanned pregnancy is often associated with single motherhood, prevalence is high among women who are cohabiting or married as well.
Available Options for an Unplanned Pregnancy:
- You can parent and raise your child yourself
- Terminate the pregnancy
- You can make an adoption plan with our adoption agency
Each pregnancy option comes with it’s own considerations, pros and cons, financial, medical, and emotional factors. Parenting is permanent and responsibilities are endless. Are you in a position to raise a child? Do you have the financial means, stable environment, and mental readiness?
If considering terminating your pregnancy you must make sure you are within Oklahoma specific state laws. While it is legal, there are strict requirements; and a huge emotional scar that can remain. An adoption plan might be the best choice if parenting nor terminating are. This adoption plan gives you the control and chance to make the decisions.
Like any other pregnant woman, you have choices. You create the plan, you choose the adoptive family, you determine the level of openness and contact, you establish your birth plan. And you have financial, emotional, mental, medical, and legal assistance. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma will discuss all of your unplanned pregnancy options before moving forward. This way, you can choose the path that is right for you.

Facing an unplanned pregnancy is scary, but facing an unplanned pregnancy as a teenager is terrifying. When a young girl finds herself unexpectedly pregnant, she usually feels lost and helpless. She may not know what to do or where to go. Usually, when people think about how to address unplanned teenage pregnancies, three things come to mind: motherhood, adoption, and terminating your pregnancy. Adoption Choices of Oklahoma works with a variety of women and girls every day. We educate them on the adoption process so they can make the best decisions.
