Adoption: The Forgotten Option In Pregnancy

The battle between pro-life guardians and pro-abort advocates has reached an all-time high.

For those who wish to have an abortion, they often back it up with statements such as “I can’t afford to raise a child”, or “I’m unfit to be a mother.”

Thinking these options justify taking an unborn life, they make comments like these as if everyone will understand. But there’s one major option they are missing.

In fact, this option isn’t talked about much by either side.

There is a middle ground between murdering an unborn baby and raising a child.


Not often talked about, but a valid option, the topic doesn’t get too much attention.

There are some who think “giving up one’s child” is unthinkable.But actually, adoption can be a possibility for those who are either too young to be a mother, can’t raise their child, or sadly, simply don’t want to.

There are many families who have difficulty conceiving and would love the chance to adopt a baby.

Just because a birth-mother is unable to raise her child, doesn’t mean that child can’t have two parents and a good home life.

Likewise, there are many older children thrown into foster care, just waiting for a good home.

Good Housekeeping reported there are 107,918 foster children waiting to be adopted.

These children deserve a chance to grow up in a safe environment, instead of being tossed around from home to home.

November is National Adoption Month.

During this month, take time to reflect on the positive aspects of adoption, and how it can truly save a child’s life.

Recently, President Trump issued the following statement, throwing his support behind adoption, and encouraging Americans to consider the possibility. reported:

“Every year, generous and loving families adopt thousands of children and provide them with the affection, attention, and opportunity they deserve. Adoption is a true blessing that greatly enriches the lives of parents and children alike. During National Adoption Month, we celebrate the thousands of families who have expanded through adoption, and we acknowledge the strength and resiliency of the children who are still waiting to find their forever home.

My Administration recognizes the profound importance of adoption for the American family. Adoption is a life-changing and life-affirming act that signals that no child in America — born or unborn — is unwanted or unloved. Adoptive parents are a selfless and loving part of God’s plan for their future children. As a Nation, we extend sincere appreciation and gratitude to those families who have welcomed a young person into their hearts and homes, sharing the precious gift of family and a lifetime of support.

We must continue to remove barriers to adoption whenever we can, so that the love and care of prospective adoptive parents can be directed to children waiting for their permanent homes.

This year’s National Adoption Month, we focus on our commitment to helping older youth experience the transformative value of permanency and love. A child is never too old for adoption. A supportive family can provide the critical direction that older children need as they enter adulthood, helping them attain educational and employment goals, and, in certain cases, avoid homelessness or incarceration.

We never outgrow the need for family, and older youth who are adopted are more likely to finish high school and feel emotionally secure than those who age out of foster care without a permanent family.

This month, let us celebrate the gift of adoption — an act of love that provides deserving young people with the foundation they need to achieve their potential and pursue the American Dream.”
