Message length 300 characters recommended

If you are 15 and pregnant you have many options. One of them is adoption, of course. There is no shame in making this huge sacrifice for both you and your baby if it is the right decision for both of you. There are many types of adoption, both open and closed with different stipulations that can be put in writing for both the adoptee and adopter. Talk to someone with an agency if you are considering making this choice, they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.


I was 15 & pregnant. I thought it was the end of the world. My mom didnt even know I was having sex! She told me I had to give my child up for adoption. My husband (then boyfriend) decided that was not an option and we ended up having our daughter. I went to school and both of our parents helped watched until she was old enough for daycare. I am now 27 with 3 children. I am very thankful I did not give my child up for adoption. It was a very very low and hard road but it was a choice me and him made. You are a child yourself, really sit and think this over. Weigh out the pros and cons. Do you have support? It is great to give a family a child but make sure this is something YOU want to do and not someone else. Your life is not over..this is a new beginning!

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
