When a woman finds out she is unexpectantly pregnant, she is flooded with a lot of emotions. Maybe she is scared or anxious, unsure of what to do. Maybe she knows she is not at a place in her life where she can financially afford to raise a child on her own. Maybe she is not ready for the lifelong commitment raising a child involves. Whatever she is feeling, Care Net Pregnancy Centers of Albuquerque is here to help her work through her feelings in a safe and judgment-free environment.
Women who already have decided they cannot raise their children have other options. Abortion is one of them, but it is not the only choice.

There are many reasons that women opt for adoption when facing an unexpected pregnancy. Here are some of the most common:
Some women may realize they are not ready for parenting, but also are unwilling to consider an abortion. Adoption is a perfect solution.
There are four different types of adoption plans available to mothers considering this pregnancy option.
It is important to understand that adoption is a permanent, legal process.

For this reason, women need to be certain adoption is an alternative they can live with for the rest of their lives.
Some adoptive families encourage and support the birth mother’s involvement in the child’s life. Others may prefer there is no contact with the birth mother unless and until the child decides he or she wants it. You have an active role in the adoption process. We can help ensure your best interests are considered throughout the adoption procedure.
