You just found out your girlfriend is pregnant and neither of you planned this. What do you do? What can you say to her? You are not ready to parent a child. What say do you have in this? What are your options? And what if you disagree with your girlfriend’s decision?

The first thing you need to do is understand all options.

The easiest way to do this is to talk to one of our pregnancy counselors (yes, we know it’s not you who is pregnant!), who can walk you through each option and help you determine the pros and cons for your specific situation. This helps ensure you get complete, accurate information about your options, so you can be knowledgeable as you talk with your girlfriend.

One of the options that can be hard to learn about on your own is adoption.

There is a lot of false information out there. There are also agencies that do not have the best interest of birth parents in mind. This is why finding the best local adoption consultant is critical.  You decide what family is right to raise your child from all the couples looking to adopt. You determine what type of open adoption is best for you.
