Whether the pregnancy comes to an unmarried teenager or a career-oriented woman, “un-ready mothers” are forced to face interruption of their education, careers or lives to have and raise a baby.
Unfortunately, too many “un-ready mothers,” choose to abort their “unwanted babies.” That may remove the lifestyle interruption but the “un-ready mother” may yet face potential depression, suicidal thoughts, physical harm and even death.
There is another option: adoption. This provides an alternative to the brutality of abortion and gives a woman the chance to choose to allow her child to live, while releasing her to pursue her life’s goals.
Best of all, adoption brings “unwanted babies” to “unfound parents,” eagerly waiting for a child to love.
