Talking To Your Family and Friends About Unplanned Pregnancy and Nevada Adoption

With the growing birth control products, society usually has a fathom that unplanned pregnancy will decrease. In most cases, they think they will not happen at all, which is understandable. But, during the pandemic, based on statistics, unplanned pregnancies increased. With the world on lockdown and everyone staying in their home, it is not unusual that such takes place. Accidents happen all the time, and though that particular accident resulted in pregnancy, it still is an accident.

That may be your predicament, but instead of having to face an unplanned pregnancy, you have to stand against those that are your family and friends. First, at Adoption Choices of Nevada, we want you to know that you should not feel bad. Over six million unplanned pregnancies happen each year in the United States, which makes up half of the pregnancies each year. In retrospect, that means you are not alone in getting pregnant without a plan and not on purpose. As a local adoption agency, we have witnessed birth mothers have a declining relationship with friends and families due to the opinions of those that are close to them. Some believe you should terminate, keep, or put the baby up for adoption. You want to respect everyone’s decision, but it is entirely up to you because it is your baby. 

Adoption Choices of Nevada we are a private adoption agency with a sector in Nevada. With multiple locations in Las Vegas and Reno, we assist local women who are facing the whims of an unplanned pregnancy. With a license in adoption, we want to build families while helping you build your life during and after the adoption process. Apart from that, we understand the external issues you face regarding family and friends, which we can help as well. 

What are My Unplanned Pregnancy Options

When it comes to friends and family, just know they want the best for you when you look from their perspective. Even if you don’t agree with exactly what they are saying, they are looking from a view of you living your life. But, in the end, it is your baby and your choice, which means their opinions don’t matter, and in the end, the baby will be where you believe them is best. Terminating the pregnancy may have been thought of yours, but if you have chosen adoption and would like to keep it that way, do not let outside sources influence you. 

That means, in this case, you should do what is best for you. Since you have decided to adopt, we can make you feel as comfortable as possible and know as much information about adoption. So we can provide you with documents explaining adoption and the thorough process we implement for adoption. That means you can give those said documents to your friends so instead. They can support you and know that your life will not be affected in the ways they believe if you don’t terminate. Just to make it clear, do not terminate your pregnancy due to pressure. That is not a decision you make based upon pressure. If needed, your specialist can step in if you decide to utilize our services to help you and explain adoption better.  

Choosing Adoption in Nevada is Not Giving Up

You are making the best decision regarding you and your child. If words like this area continued to be said, we provide therapy here free of charge where you can come and talk. Also, if words like this are being continued to be said, separate yourself for the duration of your pregnancy to avoid stress which puts you and your baby at risk. We are not saying to eliminate your family as a whole, but they are saying this can put a mental strain on you. Just to be clear, you are not giving up on your baby. You are an amazing mom! You decided to put your child first so they can have a life you know you can’t provide. We always look at that as selfless, not selfish, or giving up on your baby.
