I have an unplanned pregnancy. What should I do?
Gossipy neighbors used to say “girl in trouble.” But really, an unplanned pregnancy can turn into an unexpected blessing for many people! If you are not at a place to raise a child, the positive choice of adoption is available to you. When you choose adoption, you’re positively impacting at least three lives! You are going to receive the unplanned pregnancy help that you need, both during your pregnancy and after you have placed your baby. You are granting a waiting set of parents or parent the opportunity to have the children they’ve always wanted.
Where can I go if I am afraid?
Building Arizona Families not only provides practical assistance to women who chose adoption, but we offer unplanned pregnancy counseling in Arizona. Our experienced team will walk beside you every step of the way. If you qualify, we can help you with emergency housing, food, clothing, transportation, and healthcare arrangements. You don’t have to do any of this by yourself.
Our unplanned pregnancy counseling in Arizona doesn’t end after you place your baby for adoption. Through our foundation, the Donna K. Evans Foundation, our unplanned pregnancy help continues to move you forward into a healthy, bright future. This includes support groups, practical help with job or school applications, and even access to our food and clothing pantries.
Perhaps you want to finish high school or college or pursue a promising career path. Even though parenting is not possible right now, yet the love for your baby will motivate you to make positive life choices for your future. This is particularly important if you choose an open adoption where you remain in contact with the adoptive family and your child.
How is adoption a good choice?
Women placing their babies for adoption through Building Arizona Families choose the adoptive family that is the best fit for your baby. Then, you choose what type of adoption you want – open or closed.
In an open adoption, you maintain a relationship with the adoptive family and your child. In a closed adoption, you choose to not have your identity revealed, and do not remain in contact.
You are making important decisions for your unborn child’s future. Your decisions are made from a mother’s heart that wants what is best for her child. We are here to support, encourage, and navigate you on your adoption journey, as you turn an unplanned pregnancy into a blessing for your baby, yourself, and the adoptive parent(s).
What happens after I decide to place my child for adoption?
During the length of your pregnancy, you will attend educational classes, doctor’s appointments, receive food, clothing, and other needed necessities. Housing is provided if you need a place to stay. Transportation is available if you need to get around. Unplanned pregnancy counseling in Arizona is also part of your support.
Building Arizona Families is an Arizona licensed adoption agency that has been serving woman making the courageous decision to turn an unplanned pregnancy into a blessing for over two decades.
