Did you just discover you’re pregnant? Are you unsure of what to do? Well, you’re not alone. In fact, according to the CDC, each year there around 190,000 women between the ages of 15-19 that experience an unplanned pregnancy.
Dealing with an unplanned pregnancy is tough and most women have questions that often go unanswered simply because they have no one they can talk to in times of need. These questions range from, “Am I ready to parent?” to “What will my parents say when they find out?” to “Should I give up my baby for adoption?”
Here at the Law Offices of Madonna Finney, we work with and counsel young women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy in Florida. We help them explore their options, whether that be parenting, abortion or adoption, and counsel them on how to best proceed with their pregnancy. If you decide upon adoption, we would help you make the adoption plan that works best for you and your child, including helping you find just the right adoptive family.
While parenting and abortion are never off the table, many of the young women we work with choose to place their child for adoption. The reason they choose adoption, more often than not, is because they want their child to have the best life possible – one where they are raised by a loving family and are able to obtain a quality education. They also choose adoption so that they can stay in or finish school, and plan for a successful future.
Did you know that, according to the U.S. Department of Education, one-third of the students who drop out do so in order to parent a child? Or that 60% of teens who give birth in high school do not graduate? Those are staggering numbers.
If you are a teen facing an unplanned pregnancy in Florida, you do not have to drop out of school just because you’re pregnant. You have other options. Adoption is a loving option for expectant/birth mothers who want to achieve their dreams of going to college and establishing a career. If you’re considering adoption, but not sure where to start, the Law Office of Madonna Finney can help.
