As you face the reality of an unplanned pregnancy, there are so many fears, pressures, and questions:
- Will I be able to provide for my child and myself financially?
- Do I have support from my parents, friends, or partner to help me care for my baby?
- Can I adjust my plans to finish my education, or begin my career, in order to be able to meet my baby’s needs as well as my own?
- Will I be able to love and care for my baby as a single parent?
- Will this baby’s father have any say in my decisions?
We know that as you examine your options for this pregnancy, you are trying to make the best decision for you and your child.
Adoption is an option you may explore as you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Adoptions can be handled in different ways according to your needs and desires. Through this loving option you have the opportunity to make a plan for your child’s future by placing your baby with the adoptive family of your choice. The family you choose will be able to parent your child and provide what you may not be able to at this time.
So many questions.
So much I don’t know.
Where can I find answers? Who can I talk to?
You can make an informed decision. Make an appointment with Cornerstone to explore the option of making an adoption plan for your baby. We provide accurate information about adoption. We will support you in your decision making process and refer you to a trusted attorney or agencies in the area who will assist you through your pregnancy and the adoption process.
Adoption is an expression of love.
At Cornerstone, we want you to know that you are not alone. We are available to help. To listen to you. To advise you. To pray with, and for you. To refer you to the help you need the most.
There is hope for you and your child!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
You and your child have value and purpose. You both are a wonderful gift to the world.
For you [the Lord God] created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:13-16
God will care for you and your child tenderly.
He [God] tends his flock like a shepherd; He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young. Isaiah 40:11
