There are moments in life that are truly life-changing. From graduating from high school to getting your first job and more, these occurrences are ones that shape our futures and help determine the path we will take. One of the most significant is the moment you find out you’re pregnant. Within you, a new life is developing, and in nine short months, another human being will be introduced to the world.
While this is a time for celebration for many, others find that their life circumstances aren’t accommodating for a baby. For about 30 percent of women across the country, the choice to have an abortion is one they will decide to make at least once in their lives by the age of 45. This is an option, but it’s important to understand the consequences and take the time to explore all alternatives before making such an important decision in your life.
Understanding What Happens Following an Abortion
Despite what your feelings are on the topic of abortion, there are millions of women who experience mild to severe depression after the fact. This is because an attachment can and often does develop when the woman is aware of the life growing inside of her. Once that life is terminated, some of the feelings that can become overwhelming include:
- • Immediate sadness
- • Loss
- • Guilt
If you feel that you aren’t equipped to provide your child the best start in life, there are alternatives that should be explored.
Keeping the Baby
Circumstances can and do change, and just because you currently feel unprepared to care for a baby doesn’t mean you won’t get to that point. In fact, in many cases, having the added responsibility of a baby can help the parents strive to progress at a quicker rate. If you think you may want to keep the baby, there are a few things you should do to prepare:
- • Don’t be afraid to buy used materials if you need to. You can save a bundle on baby furniture, toys, and other necessities by acquiring something another child has outgrown.
- • Throw a baby shower. This gives you a chance to celebrate your decision with loved ones while receiving gifts to get you started.
- • Understand that you can’t prepare for everything. As a parent, you often have to “go with the flow”.
The Adoption Option
While there are no official statistics in regards to how many people across the country are waiting to adopt, it’s estimated that there are around 1.5 million couples ready to share their homes with unplanned babies. At the same time, there are approximately 1.3 million abortions performed every year. The couples on the waiting lists have been carefully screened, and they have the financial and emotional capability to provide your unborn child with the essential elements they need to enjoy a healthy and satisfying childhood.
