Give Baby Up For Adoption (1)

If you are pregnant and you have already come to the conclusion that parenting and raising a child is not the right choice for you at this point, then you are probably left thinking about whether abortion or adoption is the right choice.

Although you may seek advice from family, friends and the father of the child, only you can decide which option is right for you.  No one should pressure you into one choice over the other.  Here at Juliana Gaita, P.A. we are here to support you during this time. There is no judgment from our office and we will talk through all the options with you.

Benefits Of Adoption Vs Abortion

  1. Don’t haveto go through the abortion process
    • They’ve already had an abortion and don’t want to go through that process again.  Many women who come to our office to make an adoption plan, have already had an abortion before.  It’s not that they necessarily regret having the abortion, as it was the right choice for them at that time, but they feel that they may not want to go through the abortion process again.  Many women experience guilt or negative feelings after an abortion and decide when again facing an unwanted pregnancy, they don’t want to experience that again. Some women feel they will regret having an abortion, but will never regret giving life to their child.
  2. They Want to Help Create a Family. 
    • Although having a baby at this time in your life might not be right for you, many women recognize that there are others out there where the time is right, but they are experiencing fertility issues.  The idea of helping a family grow is motiving to some women who want to choose adoption over abortion. Our waiting families do not take for granted the gift they know they are being given.
  3. Religious reasons. 
    • Many women who come to us to discuss the option of adoption, have strong religious beliefs against abortion.
  4. Financial assistance with living
    • Some women who choose adoption recognize that they will need assistance with living expenses.  By choosing adoption and making an adoption plan, you may receiving living expenses for things like rent, food, phone, transportation and clothing during your pregnancy.  The women who choose adoption over abortion may use this time in their life to stabilize their life and achieve and attain the goals that they have with a little extra help.
  5. Its too late to have an abortion
    • If it’s too late to have an abortion and you don’t want to co-parent with the other parent.  There are women who come to us after the time for an abortion has passed.  The choice of adoption vs. parenting can be made at any time.  Some women  were initially thinking they were going to parent the child but now for many reasons have decided that it is not the right time and have changed their mind. Sometimes they have broken up with the Father and they don’t want to necessarily co-parent with the Father for the rest of the child’s life. Adoption is still possible even when the relationship with the Father is complicated.

If you decide that adoption is the right choice for you, our counselors and legal team are on standby to discuss exactly what adoption is.  The first step is gathering the information.  Everything about adoption is confidential.

We will meet with you to go over all the stages of adoption and talk through why you are considering adoption.

If you choose to continue to go forward with making an adoption plan, our counselors will sit with you to go over your budget and expenses that may come up with the pregnancy. Together, we will determine what living expenses you may need assistance with.  We will also help you to obtain medical insurance and set up your medical appointments for you.  You choose the doctor’s office you feel most comfortable with.
