Parenting is one of the most dramatic and rewarding changes in your life. This doesn’t mean your life is over. You still can achieve the goals you have set for yourself.

Not ready to be a parent? You can still be a good parent by choosing adoption for your child. You can plan for your baby’s future by selecting a stable, loving family to care for your baby.

And then, you can continue with the plans you have for yours.
