Compassionate Care You're Worthy Of

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and don’t want another abortion, you’re likely feeling overwhelmed, anxious, scared, and all the emotions in between. Your feelings are understandable, but you’re not alone in this.

At HopePlace Newport, we’re here for you. We provide a safe space to explore your options and offer free pregnancy resources to help you feel supported and encouraged.

This article will explore your other pregnancy options, including parenting and adoption, and give tips on determining which choice is right for you. But if you want to talk to someone in person, contact us today to schedule a free, confidential appointment.

Is Parenting Right for Me?

Parenting might feel like an impossible option in your life right now. Maybe you think you’re too young to parent, or maybe you have other children and can’t imagine adding another to the mix.

Your worries about parenting are valid, but there are resources available to help you feel supported if you choose to parent. At HopePlace Newport, we offer free educational courses to help you feel prepared to parent, a safe place to talk, and community referrals.

When thinking about whether parenting is right for you, the following questions can help you get started:

  • What am I worried most about when it comes to parenting?
  • Is there anything I’m excited about?
  • What might parenting look like in my life?
  • How might I feel if I feel if I choose to parent?

While these questions can help you get started thinking about parenting, at HopePlace Newport, we can help you explore this option and give you a safe place to ask questions without judgment.

Is Adoption Right for Me?

When you think of adoption, what do you imagine? If you’ve seen movies, you might picture a baby being left on a doorstep, but this looks nothing like adoption today.

Most modern adoptions are open, which means that you, the adoptive family, and the child have the opportunity to build a relationship if you desire.

When thinking about whether adoption is the right choice for you, it’s important to know that you are in control of the adoption process—and you get to decide the future you want for your child.

Some questions to ask when thinking through adoption include:

  • What future do I want for my child? Do I want the adoptive family to have certain religious values, hobbies, or lifestyles? Do I want the child to have siblings, pets, etc.?
  • How might I feel if I choose adoption?
  • What worries me most about this option?

While we don’t offer adoption services, we do provide referrals to reputable adoption agencies in our area. Speaking with an adoption agency can provide you with the information you need to determine if adoption is the right choice for you.
